Do you live in an area with hard water? If so, hard water deposits cause 2 problems. They clog your spray arms and they leave a cloudy film on your clean dishes. Here's a map to tell if you have hard water. http://www.citriclean.net/why-citriclean/ And you can get a free sample of CitriClean if you request.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not getting water into spray arm, so no clean dishes

two possibilities: open door when in use. check if water is coming out of the spray arms. if it is and at a good rate, then the problem may be the spray arm jets blocked. the spray arms are only rotated by water coming out of the angled jets at their end or is the main circulating pump running ok?

SOURCE: Top spray not functioning in dishwasher

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

SOURCE: it doesn't start and clean light flashes

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Why do dishes on the top rack feel dirty after washing?


probably not getting enough water pressure in the top section of the machine to was properly ( dirty spray bar jets /nozzles)
do a machine clean using good quality recommended agents
A major problem that occurs with dish washers is the failure to rinse off the items to be washed before installing in the machine
this refuse then blocks up the jets and nozzles in the spray bars and stops the pump from reaching full pressure.

How do we progress with resolving a substantial leak from bottom of dishlex dx301. Pumps out water will nil issue when emptying. Also noticed spray arms do not turn and water only dribbles from them


Fill hose, or float assembly has a problem with its gasket, which will cause it to do that. The float assembly itself could be the problem, if the unit is draining fine I would say that the sump and drain lines are fine.

Fill line or water inlet valve itself as well could be the issue.

Dishwasher won't clean?


check to see that the jets of the spray arms are not blocked. Sometimes small pieces of food get into the arms and block the spray so it doesn't clean the dishes well

Dishwasher does not clean dishes. Some soap remains in soap dish. Have tried on the enrgy saver cycle and 1 hour cycle.


Hi jerry1413,

Firstly, make sure you are using powdered soap, and not the 3 in 1 tablets. The 3 in 1 Tablets only release certain parts of itself on certain temperatures, and because all dishwashers aren't alike, they won't have the best of results on all makes & models. Cycles aren't run the same way on every Make, and don't follow the same order either. Trust Me ;-) , stick to Powder.

Furthermore, check the following link for some advice and suggestions on getting your dishwasher to clean properly again:

Kind Regards :-)

Dirty dishes


if water comes into machine then valve is ok.
open machine when in cycle and look to see if spray arms are rotating
if not, then take out and clean.
spray arms only rotate with water jetting out of angled nozzles at end and if these are blocked then no rotation and poor wash

Thomo, make sure the sprayer holes in the spray arms are clean. Grains of rice seem to be a dishwashers biggest enemy as they don't desolve and eventually end up lodged in the spray holes. The holes at the end of the spray arms are the ones responsible for the washing out of the soap powder from the dispenser, if they are blocked this does not happen.
Hope this helps
Cheers
