Open Question

The powder door on my dishlex global 310 won't open during a cycle.

When I use my dishlex global 310 dishwasher it has stopped opening the powder/tablet door during a cycle. So when the cycle has finished and you open the main door the dishes aren't washed because the tablet/power hasn't been released because the little door won't open.

This is a common fault if your drain hose or the drain pipework after it is blocked by tissues or fluff etc remove the drain hose from the vertical drain pipe or u-bend connection and check that all are free of obstructions. Also a lot of machines have a filter located at the bottom of the machine either behind a flap at the front or located near the pump at (usually) the back of the machine underneath. This can be got at by either removing the back panel if there is one or tilting the machine forward to access it from underneath chock the drum with wood to avoid drum suspension damage or re- attach the drum bolts which were removed when the machine was delivered if you still have them. The pump will have a rubber hose attached before it and the pump is connected to the machine end of the drain hose, often the rubber hose is large bore and incorporates a hard plastic filter designed to trap buttons coins etc before entering the pump and damaging the impeller blades, remove any debris.
In essence you are making sure the the whole drainage route from the drum to the final drain point is clear and free flowing.

Dishlex global 300 : dishwasher dispenser won't


Hi just read your posting.The problem could be a faulty dispenser coil ,or the wires to it are faulty or the computer is faulty.Try selecting a normal eco wash and when you push the start button to start the machine hold the button in until the pre wash light turns off.This should make the dispenser activate straight after it fills.The only way to test which part is faulty is with an electrical meter.Have you or can you borrow one.If so then I can guide you step by step in finding the fault.please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.

Not disolving powder thru cycle


This may be a problem with the powder that you are using. It may also be a problem with the temperature of the water that is coming into your machine (not hot enough).

You may want to try a gel type detergent.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Dishwasher problem


Symptoms:
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath dispenser.

Solution:

Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.

Explanation:
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.

During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.

When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.

Thomo, make sure the sprayer holes in the spray arms are clean. Grains of rice seem to be a dishwashers biggest enemy as they don't desolve and eventually end up lodged in the spray holes. The holes at the end of the spray arms are the ones responsible for the washing out of the soap powder from the dispenser, if they are blocked this does not happen.
Hope this helps
Cheers

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Before taking anything to bits, check you aren't just loading the machine in such a way that something (for us, it's usually a frying pan) is stopping the soap dispenser from springing open all the way. A.
