You don't say what happens after the dispenser opens.

These units use very little water and thus need very little soap, you can only use powder no cubes or liquid. It uses less than a tablespoon of soap. Also use jetdry it makes a huge difference to the glasses and plastic.

If you run the unit without adding soap and the water is still soapy you are using too much soap.


The Duel fuel oven uses the broiler in preheat and if you do not finish the preheat cycle then it will burn the food .

Smelly DW


Probably stays damp inside. That allows any trapped food particles to get funky. Clean it, wiping door seals and dispenser compartments, clean the filters, especially the drain filter if any. Then run on its hottest cycle with a cup or so of vinegar in it. That should clear up the smell. In future, let the beast get dry inside after use. Normally it will be pretty dry at the end of the cycle, but if you cut short the drying time to save on electricity, then you will have to leave the machine open for a little while, and open a crack all the time.

We have always used Finish Detergent cubes that have worked great until recently. Now when we run the cycle the detergent cube is still unmelted when we open the dishwasher door. Any suggestions as to why...


Check your wash arms - make sure the holes or nozzels are clear (not blocked), and make sure they are free to turn. Make sure you are not over-loading the dishwasher or placing large plates or pans in front of the soap dispenser. Next is to check to see if enough water is going into the DishWasher (DW). This varies with different models, so it's hard to tell you how much is enough. Next thing to check is to make sure the heater is working to heat the water during the wash cycle. (Listen for the soap dish to open, then open the door 10 or 15 minutes later and see if the water is hot.) If your dishwasher has a removable filter, you need to take that out and clean it at least once a month.

I wash the DW with finish DW cleaner.All items smell rotten eggs


Try running a wash with a couple of caps of baby sterilising fluid. If the d/w is connected directly to the sink, remove the spigot and check there aren't any blockages. I run a dishwasher cleaner thru my d/w every 3 months and every couple of week I will load the machine for a wash, add tab to dispenser and just after starting a 65 degree wash, I will open the door and tip in approx one capful of sterilising fluid.
Good luck
baby fluid also good as a sluice wash for your washing machine on 90 degrees (w/m empty, approx every 4 weeks).

The first cycle water is not hot - all other cycles are hot - the water in the sink next to the dishwasher is not???


Where does the dishwasher connect to hot water? If it is connected to cold it must be changed. From your description, the water is coming from a long way off and has to warm the pipes as it travels to the dw. The dw should have a heater to bring the water up to temp after filling before it runs, if this heater is not working, the first run will be cold and the next hot because you have drawn enough water through the pipes to bring hot water to the dw.
1. Change where the dw gets hw.
2. Run hw in the sink before allowing the dw to start (if connected to same line).
3. Fix the dw's water heater.

Three possible fixes. Good luck.

Is the drain hose clogged or kinked? Or the knockout for your disposer inlet not knocked out?

Soap dispenser does not open


You have a water supply problem. If you don';t get enough water then the dishwasher pump cannot pumpit up high or strong enough to dissolve the soap[. Your water valve screen may be clogged.

Our Bosch diswasher smells (foul odor) after a wash cycle.


Make sure the drainage hose is not pushed all the way through the gooseneck in the pipe. Doing so will bypass the standing water which prevents sewer gasses from escaping into the dishwasher.

Indesit idl 40 model, leaves dishes dirty and a dirty film on glasses.


First check if you are getting enough water into the DW, by opening the door after the fill cycle and see if you have about 1/4-1/2 inch of water by the edge of the tub. check that the water in the DW is hot (higher than 120 F) last, you may have a box of old DW detergent
