Question about Dishwashers
For some reason the Asko 1605 won't accept the tablet when undertaking wash. Initially I thought the holding basket was loose as the tablet would be sitting at the bottom of the machine at the end of the wash. So I then taped the basket down and the tablet remained inside simply unused. Help
Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.
Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.
The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.
Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.
Hope that helps and best regards!

I think I see the problem based on "futureloginn"'s highly rated solution. You have a dishwasher. You need to stop washing clothes in it.

It may just be the way you are loading the machine. If the dishes are not allowing the the detergent door to open fully, the tablet sits in the dispenser until you open the dishwasher, letting the dispenser door open and the half dissolved tablet falls out! Try being more careful how you load the machine or just chuck the tablet in the bottom of the machine instead of the dispenser!
