Question about Dishwashers
Connected up HEC9AFM slimline dishwasher, doesn't seem to clean dishes very well. Still have marks on the plates and streaky glasses. Also, cannot find the manual.
Try this before you decide your dishwasher is broken:
Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) and use it. Re-evaluate after 2 loads of dishes. If problems continue, keep using the brand name powder but also:
With a screw driver. remove the filter shroud beneath the lower spray arm as far as possible (take pictures as you go) and rinse everything, including anything that looks like a mesh filter. Also, inspect all wash arms for blockages of any holes and clean them.
With a flashlight, find and remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!) Inspect the impeller for problems or not being tightly secured. Reassemble.
Test out. If problems continue and your dishes have a film on them, suspect that you heating element has failed. Replacing it will work wonders!
If problems continue, the problem is most likely a failing wash pump motor. If you replace it, your on you way.
