Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers

Open Question

Hotpoint HDA2100 is not clearing soap.

I just moved into an apartment with an HDA2100 dishwasher. It is relatively new and it seems as if my dishes are barely getting washed. Most dishes have tons of food left on them even when there was hardly on them to begin with and there is always soap left in the cup. The maintenance man said that its just a cheaper model and to scrub all my dishes before hand, but I know this is not the case. Any idea on what is going wrong so we can pinpoint the issue and get it fixed?

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.

Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

I would try using a different soap or less of your current soap.

Your dishwasher has clogged water ports.
Start the dishwasher with NO dishes in it.
Once it starts the wash cycle,open the door and pour in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle.
That should clear out the residue.
Change your dishwasher soap to the FINISH brand name for happy clean dishes.

make sure the arm on top isnt hitting something, each time you load it each in there and spin it to be sure it moves freely, also make sure your rinse agent container is full of rinse agent.

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

Does this model fully drain?


Switch immediately to a Brand Name Dishwasher powder (like Electrosol or Cascade.)  Avoid gels, tablets and never use a dish soap that is meant for washing dishes in a sink.  This will solve the "bubbles" problem.
Yes, dishwashers do maintain some level of water inside to keep the pump seals/gaskets from drying out or seizing. As long as the water down there is clear and has no odor, you and your apartment's dishwasher is fine.
OK?  Post back with any more questions.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes. Casade cleaner not disolved.???


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.

Dishwasher won't dispense soap


The dispenser's unit should be replaced. You can try as well to operate the dishwasher while putting the powder detergent or the tablet on the dishwasher's bottom and if you will get good results, to opereate the machine this way. Good luck!
