If the dishwasher is connected at the sink and you get hot water there, you have a faulty heater or safety thermostat.

The soap doesn't dissolve and sometimes the plates are still dirty.


Start dishwasher. Stop after a minute or so. Check the water level in the tub. On a older model I would expect about 2 inches of water in the tub. About 1/2 inch or so below heater.

If water OK than I assume you can hear the pump running.

If pump running and enough water than I would assume a blocked wash arm.
  • First rotate by hand and make sure that it doesn't bind or interfere with rack.
  • Check carefully the holes at the ends of the arm looking for debris that collects. Seeds and such love to collect at the tips preventing the jet of water that provides the rotation force from escaping. Use small tweezers to grab debris and pull through hole
  • Blocked water return screen. Look for clear plastic etc that covers the return of the water to the pump sump.
  • Place small cups right side up in upper and lower rack. Cycle machine for a minute or so. Confirm cups are filling with water!!
If all checks OK than try running water at sink for several minutes to confirm water is very hot. Start cycle knowing inlet water to dishwasher is hot. Evaluate results.

The water isn't getting hot


If the water to your kitchen tap is above 120 to around 145 your machine is getting hot water. If not your need to adjust your hot water heater.
It is fine to open the DW door during the wash cycle. The unit will hold the wash cycle. Open the door during the start of the wash cycle (not rinse) and see it the dispenser door is open. If not it could be the timer is not sending the proper signal to the dispenser on when to open. This would be a timer issue and you would want to replace the timer. I doubt that this is it but it is possible.
Hope this helps.

Du1100xtpq7 has had the touch pad replaced along with the circuit board that goes behind it and yet it just keeps repeating the wash cycle and goes for hours


i would guess that you are having a problem with the optical sensor inside the pump housing. it is suppose to sense when the water is clean or dirty and allow the unit to continue washing or advance to the next cycle.
i have seen these test good but be just out of calibration enough to cause long run times.
you can try to change it yourself or have the service company try that instead of a new board and panel.

Dishes don't get clean. soap still on inside of door. . . water coming up to fill line and hot enough and dishwasher drains after cycle, spray arms are clear. . . help!


Water from the wash arms must be able to reach the detergent cup during the wash. It sounds as though the machine may be over-loaded during the wash and water does not cause the detergent to mix with the wash tank water. Try washing a cycle with nothing in the machine. Does the detergent still stick to the door?
If no, the machine is overloaded. Wash fewer items or smaller items so spray will contact detergent.
If yes, you have probably lost wash pressure. Clean all screens and jets.
Hope this helps,
