I would fill the dishwasher only half full of dishes that are well rinsed off, run the sink water til hot before turning on the dishwasher, use a good quality dishwasher soap or tablet, and make sure the dishwasher is set to a full length setting like potscrubber as opposed to rinse and hold.

Dishes don't get clean and are never dry.


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes do not come clean and there is cloudiness on glasses


Hello and welcome to Fixya. There are several factors which influence how your Bosch perform's. Saying that brings me to a point I have to ask a few questions. 1) How long have you had the unit...when did you buy it ? 2) do the dishes always appear dry when the cycle completes ? 3) How long does the unit take to complete a "normal" wash cycle ? 4) Do you have adequate hot water going to the unit ? Let me know as much as possible and I should be able to help. I will watch for your response. Macmarkus :)

Dirty Dishes


Hello Peter, Welcome to Fixya. I'm going to start by asking a couple of questions, but that is part of a proper and thorough diagnosis from afar...in my opinion. Does a "normal" wash cycle take longer then 2 - 3 hrs ? Do the dishes appear to be dry when the dishwasher completes the cycle ? Further to this question, does there appear to be any heat in the machine upon completion of the cycle ? I ask these questions specifically because heat is a crucial factor in desolving the detergent ( usually a minimum of 145F ) and thus cleaning the dishes as well as allowing the dishes to dry properly when cleaned. If we could start here I will be better equipped to helping you solve your dishwasher troubles and with any luck assisting you in repairing it yourself. I'll watch for your reply and we'll go from there. macmarkus :)

My Whirlpool Gold, Quiet model III is not rinsing or drying well. My dishes don't seem clean and there is always diswhashing liquid still in the distribution cup.


the problem that you have is with your water temp not being right to break down the soap and clean your dishes. also you have to fill completely jet dry compartment,very very important for cleaning,drying,and the spots. turn your water on and let it get hot b4 you start the unit . once the water is hot then start the machine. you will see a big difference. send me a 4 thumbs up post if it works

Once the cycle is complete (rinse, drying, end) the dishes are clean but not dry.


#1 plastic dishes cups etc will rarely completely dry
check your heater, check for continuity on the heater it should ohm out.
does the heater get hot?
are you running hot water at the sink before pushing the start button?
are you using a rinse agent such as jet dry?

When the wash cycle is done, the dishes are wet


It seems that the newer dishwashers are worse at drying dishes than their tupperware melting predecessors were. They have all been tuned down, and do dry less. The only thing that you can do is to set your machine for the hottest wash, power dry and use a rinse agent that provides a sheeting action. Some folks use white vinegar as a supplement to their rinse aid, which has the added bonus of killing mold. Water also stays attached if the water has laid down minerals as noted by cloudy glassware. If this is the case, a dishwasher filter (dishwasherfilter.com, $70) might help. We try to wash hot, with a power dry and use a rinse aid/vinegar. Then, when the cycle is complete, but the dishes are still hot, we open the dishwasher, and "jiggle" the racks to get the excess water off of the glasses, and leave the dishwasher open about 2" at the top, so the dishes will continue to air dry. This has been an effective method for us.
Best regards, --W/D--

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes


In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

Not drying


These dishwashers have no heater for drying dishes. It has a fan to circulate warm air. It is very important that your water temp is at least 120 degrees. It is the combination of hot water and air circulating that dries dishes.
