Tablet door not fully opening

We've moved house and have this dishwasher and I'm finding it utterly dreadful...the top rack seems too low, which means that the spinny thing sometimes fouls on the large plates so doesn't turn, and now I've realised that the other reason for a very poor clean is that the tablet door seems to be fouling on the top rack so it isn't opening properly and the tablet is only crumbling out partially when it gets soggy enough. A I doing something fundamentally wrong or is this just a really bad design??

SOURCE: dishwasher leaves residue in top rack only

Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !

SOURCE: Stuck on Glass cycle!

Hi melH Sounds like the water is not heating. Will be either an open circuit thermostat, heater element, or the switch / relay that controls the element. Using an ohm meter, test the element for resistance. Check thermostats for continuity. Regards

SOURCE: I went to take out

1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

Hi Just bought and installed a Bush wkp12-9348 integrated dishwasher. There seems to be a problem with the door. When I open the door the spring seems very tight and tries to close. I am unable to unload...


Open the door...PULL THE RACK OUT...and unload. I mean, really??
If the bottom rack is loaded it sits on the door. if its the top rack ..open door, pull out rack, and unload.

When the cycle has finished and I open the door the washing tablet is sitting in the tablet flap that is open


Hello Vanessa,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1716 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not dissolving the detergent, it often is a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.


Unfortunately the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced if indeed it is broke.

Here's something you can try first though, this will indicate if the unit is circulating the water properly. Try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't.

Also be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

ADJUST TENSION DOOR


Just below dish loading door there is a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to find tension adjustment. Turn screw to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door open or closed untill happy with tension. Some washers have no adjustment, I suggest opening door fully and pulling out bottom load tray, loading and then top tray or rack, pushing top in first then bottom rack. Use a glass fry pan cover or fry pan for weight on door while filling soap. Good luck, best regards

I have a bosch dishwasher silence , when it finishs wash i open the door and find the tablet falling on the bottom or hanging on the container of the tablet part, which did not use at all..please advise,...


Check top basket is straight and moves back fully, remove top spray arm and check holes are not blocked. The water pressure from the top arm is deminished if they are blocked and once the dispenser door opens it is the top spray arm water that propels the tab into the tank. Also, check that when your tallest item is in the bottom basket it does not obstruct the rotation of the top one.
Hope this helps to give you a starting point to remedy fault.

Baumatic BFD60SS - Tablet not dissolving


this happened with mine and it turned out that the top shelf was too low, so this meant the spinning arm was being stopped by my plates. When the machine is fully loaded check that the spinners can move freely. if they don't then you can move the top shelf up a level. hope this helps

Bottom rack stopping soap dispenser from openning fully Model #DU810SWLUO


Hi.

The bottom rack preventing the soap dispenser from opening is quite unusual. It would mean that either the rack or the dispenser door is not mounted correctly. Inspect both parts. Help yourself with the diagram below.

Also ensure that the problem is not the dispenser door actuator or the spring, part 7 and 8 in diagram.

Tablet is not dissolving from my dishwasher drawer


If it drops to the bottom when you open the dishwasher door - your soap dispenser is blocked by the rack or an utencil protruding from the rack. Make sure both racks slide in all the way to the back. (hint: check the middle spray arm inlet, make sure it aligns with the tube on back.
Good luck)

Tablet falls to the bottom of tub but wont disolve


The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.

Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.

Hope this helps, Ken

Top Rack always slides out fully


Well, you are right on about the level. It is tilted just slightly forward. The only parts to go bad are the plastic ball bearing guides, and usually when they go, you get a rack that wont come out and gets jammed. You 've got the problem, you just need to remove the screws hidden in the holes that are sometimes coverd with rubber plugs so that the dishwasher may move freely, andjust it till it no longer rolls out, then screw it back to the counter to hold it in place. There are no springs in that rack, so either its still tilted forward, or the tank is bowed or bent somehow, and that would mean new dishwasher. Hope this helps!
