If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

SOURCE: Our dishwasher is approximately 13 years old.

13 years old?!? LOL, you're lucky it turns on!!!

Pop the sprayers off and check for clogs. Otherwise, get a new one, this machine is way, way, way past its life expectancy.

How to properly clean old coins


If they are dirty and you just want cleaned, use dish soap and hot water.
If the coin is antique or has value because it's old. Don't do anything.
You put any scratches on it while you clean, the value goes down BIG TIME!

Filter doesn't self-clean


hello diane,

i would think that unless your model says it is self cleaning then yes it is normal to have to clean the filters on a dish washer. the amount of time between cleans would depend on how dirty your dishes are.

No error message and is washing fine but it is rusting all my pots and pans and my cutlery also all my glasses are coming out all cloudy the dishwaser has also always asking for salt we have put in 3 bags...


Hi, I am only a housewife but salt is a corrosive. At home depo, menards, or lowes you can get a dishwasher cleaning kit. Use that to clean your dishwasher. Next because of new state and national laws soaps had to have a change in the chemical make up to have less sulfate or something like that. My glasses were cloudy all the time. I cleaned my dishwasher and now I
only put in dawn dish soap. I don't have to use anything else. My dishes come out clean and spotless. Now you may have to do a little more cleaning on your dishes before you put them in
because your not using regular dishwasher soap but I don't have those spots. Also I put about
a fourth teaspoon of the liquid soap in the 1st cycle soap dish and another fourth teaspoon in the 2nd cycle. You may have to experiment as to the amount you need becasue of how hard your
water is. If you put too much in soap suds will come out during the wash cycles. Hope is works

Have to hand wash dishes before and after dishwasher does not clean anything. Food just stays on dishes and glasses come out bad. Use the rinse and have cleaned it with the cleaning solution several times....

Not cleaning properly


You could be using the dishwasher at a higher temperature than the biological agents in the tablets can handle, and so become denatured and can't clean your dishes properly. I have had this problem a little while ago and found that using the "eco" setting (should heat the water to around 30c and has the added bonus of using less water) works well and makes sure that all of the dishes are clean.
It could also be a problem with the release system, where the door the holds the tablet can't release it on time and so the tablet does not dissove. Have a check to see if anything is stopping the door opening and see if there is anything you can do to make it release on time.
Hope this helps,

Dishwasher does not clean. soap door does not open every time.


Well the 2nd part of your question is probably the the reason it doesn't clean. If the soap door doesn't open then the dishes will probably not be cleaned. So.. I would focus on why the door doesn't open first.. is it sticking from old soap residue? If so, clean the dispenser with white vinegar and cycle it a few times without detergent and use the hottest/sanitary setting.. Then make sure you are using an approved dishwashing detergent for yuour wash cycle. Add some detergent to the dispenser and try cycling it without any dishes .. does the door open? If no, then you need to resolve that first.. If it does open, try running a cycle with about 1/2 the normal dish load and see if the door opened and the dishes came out clean.. Routinely, check and clean the drain filter so you aren't redistributing the food sediment from the previous load all over the next load of dishes.. Hope that helps..

Not cleaning at all - most dishes end up being washed by hand afterwards


Hi there!

You've done the basics, so we'll treat it as a fault due to wear.

When running, do you hear the spray arms rotating - about twice a second?

If the water is actually reaching the dishes, bur the arms are not rotating, you may need replacement spray arms.

If the water is not even reaching the dishes with any force, The circulation pump may be faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps you.

Dishes won't come clean


If you have dishes (typically cutting boards or really tall dishes) that block the dispenser door from opening, the water cannot wash out all the detergent during the wash cycle. Check to see that after loading the dishes, your detergent door has clearance.
