WP ADG450, will just recycle the water and not use fresh water
I have a Whirlpool ADG450 (About 6 years old).When you start a cycle it will draw in some fresh water and drain some old water, then it just recycles it.
When cycle is complete detergent cube thingy has turned to sludge and all down the bottom of the door. There is alot of dirty water in bottom of the dishwasher. And the dishes are sort of clean, but look like they have been shrayed with dirty water and have bites of detergent on them

If your unit is a Kenmore or Whirlpool (there are several other brands that use many of the same parts) and is less than 6 years old then it may pay to first check and clean out the chopper assembly for hard debris. If that doesn't do it then you may want to consider replacing the motor and circulation pump as a complete unit for between $160 and $200. Not too difficult a task for a moderately handy guy with some tools. Maybe 2 hrs. The bearing itself is not serviceable I understand, and would be considerably more difficult. Over six years old then you can buy a great quality machine for about $500.
I see that you are receiving grit and a white film on your glasses, in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC. Here are some common solutions that you can begin with.
-Check your water hardness. Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. Dishes and glasses may also get spots and film for a number of reasons. To remove buildup, spots and film, clean using the following instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes).
5. Unlatch and open the door, and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow the cycle to finish.
For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener.
-Your water temperature may be low. Avoid extremely low or high temperatures.
-Avoid overloading and improper loading.
-Make sure you are using fresh detergent. Old detergent is ineffective.
-Make sure your rinse aid dispenser is filled.
-Check to see that the proper amount of detergent is being used for cycle selected.
-Your home water pressure may be too low-it should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).
If none of these suggestions helps, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.
check the pipe leading from the dishwasher to the outlet, maybe under sink. this needs to be raise up as water will flow back into washer. Had this problem myself, felt foolish when the repair man just tied it up and left. !
This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.
This dishwasher being only seven weeks old I suggest you contact the store where you bought this unit and tell them to book a service call and send a technition out to solve this,the reason I am suggesting this is that the unit is under guarentee and if you try to repair it will void any guarentee or warrentee that is on the machine.If you do work on it and something big and expensive goes wrong the store(manufacturer) will not honor there guarentee when they see that you worked on it so better to be safe than sorry.If you do not come right with them let me know and we can see what we can do from there.
