SOURCE: soap dispenser door doesn't open during cycle of my Maytag dishwasher

Kqon, looks like your dispenser has a wax motor. I think the first thing you have to do is remove the inner door and inspect the soap dispensor assy. See if any of the moving parts are broken. This wax motor is 120V so you can run a cheater cord to it to see if it works, but be very careful when doing this. It will expand the plunger and open the flap. If the wax motor operates with 120V applied to it then you want to see if you have power coming from the timer. It will be the tan wire # 27 on the timer harness. You also want to make sure the spring and pin are in place on the dispenser flap. Your part number for the wax motor is 902899. Catriver.

Hi,

Dishwasher - Soap Stuck in Cup If you have dishwasher detergent stuck in the soap cup after a full cycle, please check for the following conditions:

  • The water temperature should be at 120 degrees (140 degrees if your dishwasher has water heating capability). Check your water temperature Check your water temperature.


  • Make sure the soap cup is not blocked by anything.


  • Allow the dishwasher to fill and make sure it is getting a proper amount of water. The dishwasher should fill for about 90 seconds. On permatuf models, the water should measure 3/8" above the island near the center of the tub. On all other models, the water should measure about 1/2" below the heating element.


  • Check the lower spray arm for any blockage in spray holes or items that would restrict its turning.


  • Make sure the soap cup has opened at the end of the cycle.


  • Check the sump area inside the dishwasher for any restrictions.

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap not opening

These rely on mechanical timers and springs on the soap dispenser. They get a bit gunked up after a while. Don't prewash and run the the dishwasher for a few cycles with the dispenser open (put the soap tablet in the cutlery basket). If you listen to the machine you may be able to hear the click when the dispenser should open which at least tells you that it should be working

SOURCE: soap isn't rinsing clean. It looks like there's a

Hi this is not salt or detergent. This is likely to be lime/calcium. Go to home depot or a similar hardware store and buy a gallon of lime-away or similar product. Start the dishwasher on pots and pans then once the dishwasher has filled with water open the door and pour around 2 cups of lime-away in. Let the entire cycle run and then repeat this once a week until the problem clears up. Once the problem clears up repeat this once every 3 months to prevent the problem returning. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

My Samsung model #WA4H7000AW/A2 seems to always need an additional rinse to get rid of soap left behind. Is this a common complaint ?


Here are some questions that may help.
1) Is the water hot enough? Since the soap "melts" better at higher temperatures, cooler water can leave a soap film.
2) Are the dishes clean before you run the machine? We like to used the dishwasher to "sanitize" the dishes, so we rinse them really good before washing them, to get off caked food residue.
3) Try changing washer soap, try powder if you used liquid, or visa-versa, and try less quantity and see if any of those help.
God bless your efforts.

Hobart dish machine. We were told by Ecolab tech that we need to rinse off all presoak, soaps and sanitizers before passing through the maching as they cause foaming/excess suds. I do not find that info...


That's true. excess of foam can cause poor wash pressure and poor final rinse.

Operation manual , pag.24. (F17791Rv02-06.pdf)
DO NOT exceed chemical manufacturer's recommended concentrations for detergent, sanitizer, rinse aid or lime scale remover.

The issue is the dispensing unit you have is a sanitizer dispenser, not a soap dispenser. The adapter collar on the bottle is the issue. Soap dispensers use a GRY collar, sannitizers use an LBL collar. There should be a sticker on the dispensing unit that says "LBL" or "GRY". Try removing the collar from a sanitizer bottle and place it on your soap bottle......should work fine. In short, make sure your letter code on the bottle mathces the letter code on the dispenser.

Soap remains on the dishes after the wash cycle is complete.


Check that the holes in the spray arms haven't blocked up and the filters in the bottom are clean. The arms may not be rotating. To check this, when the machine is washing, open the door, turn all the spray arms to face the same direction, shut the door and leave running for about 30 seconds. Open the door again and look at the position of the spray arms. They should have moved.

are you using the correct detergent and not to much for this machine-try cleaning out the drain trap and filter-wipe down the door seal and tub with a bleach or oxy type cleaner -run the sanitizer cycle with a quarter cup of powdered dishwasher soap,and finally leave the door open between loads-this ain't your momma's washer-these things can be a pain in the booter-cheers Denny

To clean can I 1) hose it down with a dishwasher


This isn't recommended, meat tends to get in a lot of the nooks and crannies in a slicer machine. It's best to first unplug the machine, then take it a part in order to properly clean it. If your not sure how to take the machine apart, consult the user's manual for further understand how to do it. Once taken apart, some sort of stainless steal cleaner followed by a sanitizing soap should be used to clean it. Sanitizer is very important especially when dealing with meat products. Once a sanitizer is applied it is recommend that you let the slicer air dry for 4-6 hours before using it again to ensure the sanitizer has fully dissipated.

Shortly after I turn on the sanitizer on the machine, it turns itself off (the whole machine). Does it need to be cleaned?? What type of solution do I clean the boards in??


Remove the plaques and using an old tooth brush clean with mild soap and water.. Rinse thoroughly, towel dry and finish drying them with blow drier. The interior of the unit and it's filter should also be cleaned. Depending on what type filer it uses (Aluminum mesh or soft mesh plastic) they too and can be washed with mild soap and water, rinsed and thoroughly dried. Any other type filter material may need to be replaced. Clean the interior with canned compressed air with a straw nozzle and a dry paper towel.

Of course, before you do any of the above, unplug the unit.

I have purchased a business - with a Hobart LXi - and no manual. I can't figure out what soap etc to use - or how it gets into the dishwasher!


Contact your local chemical supplier such as EcoLab or AutoChlor to purchase the proper chemicals. Use ONLY commercal dish washing chemicals. Residential detergents like Cascade do not dissolve fast enough and WILL, in time, cause you trouble if used in the LXi.

There should be three colored plastic tubes at the rear of your machine. Red is to be put in a container of liquid detergent, Blue is for rinse aid, and white/clear is for sanitizer. Your chemical salesman should be able to show you how it's done at no charge.

You may also want to register here http://www.hobartservice.com/Manuals/ then download the manuals for the LXi dish machine.

All the best.
