    i would check with a used appliance shop. you dont want to buy something too old and have to replace it in a few months.when they get too old seals start leaking and other problems crop up and can cause you extra expense. its up to you if you buy it or not but id have them hook it up and let it go through all the cycles and stuff before i pay out anymoney. make sure its in working order if you do buy it.

Is this machine new to you or have you had it long enough to see it work properly?

If it used to work as it should then you know that there is probably a problem other than your water or soap. If you have whopping lime in your water then the problem could be in a water treatment system (softener, RO system, etc) Is there a screen and is it not plugged when you clean it? Does the machine drain the wash water properly? Does it spray in the rinse cycle?

If the screen is not plugged then it should be able to drain the wash water. If it's draining the wash water then you should get a good rinse if you're not using too much soap. If it's not draining the wash or spraying the rinse then I'd suspect the timer. If it's not draining I'd suspect a plugged screen, a solenoid valve or the timer. If it's not spraying the rinse then it's just about got to be the timer.

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the...


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommended amount of detergent which is, at least, twice the amount you really need. Next time you leave for an extended period, run the machine in the Rinse cycle. This will dilute or remove the detergent left in the machine

It is as efficient as any dishwasher made today. It is also mechanically better than most made today. Keep it running as long as you can.
Under the sink find the dishwasher drain line,using a piece of wire or string tie the DW hose up under the sink so that there is a rise in the hose from the disposal drain outlet.This way drain water will not go back down the hose.

Do not buy. Viking dishwashers are made by Asko and are prone to the same issues, which are numerous; if you have the cash go for Miele.

My tablet won't dissolve.


Sounds to me like the dishwasher isn't filling up with cold water. I had a similar problem a few months ago, caused by limescale blocking the inlet and drain valves. Might be worth trying some kettle limescale cleaner solution and putting it inside the machine - and leaving it overnight then trying the machine out with no dishes etc in it.
