Question about Samsung DMT400RHS Builtin Dishwasher

1 Answer

Soap remains on the dishes after the wash cycle is complete.

After every wash cycle (usually set to Heavy and Sanitize) glasses and dishes have a small amount of dishwashing soap on them. I know this because when I fill a water glass with water, there are small soap bubbles in the water. I always use JetDry rinse agent, and Cascade dishwasher soap. How do I fix this? Thanks.

Check that the holes in the spray arms haven't blocked up and the filters in the bottom are clean. The arms may not be rotating. To check this, when the machine is washing, open the door, turn all the spray arms to face the same direction, shut the door and leave running for about 30 seconds. Open the door again and look at the position of the spray arms. They should have moved.

the problem is hard water i bet. there is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. this i think is awesome becasue who knows whats in the water cleaning the dishes you eat and drink with. my dishes use to be white and spotty and after the first load with the filter they came out spotless. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. you will be glad you did. oh it goes under the sink and is small and affordable.

That sounds more like a problem with your soap not disolving completly. Try these few simple things. First, run your hot tap at your sink until it gets hot, then start your dishwasher. What this will do is ensure that your "prewash" is using hot water.

The next thing, is you want to select the "heated wash" or "hi temp wash" option with a "normal wash" cycle. What the heated wash will do is ensure that during the main wash the water gets boosted to 140 degrees wich is the temperature that your soap breaks down at.

White film left on dishes is a classic indication that the soap has not disolved or broken down completly.

Soap dipenser


Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..

Dishes are not clean; lots of soap residue


Try the combo liguidgel powder packets and wash on the potscrubber plus setting. We saw a drastic improvement with this setting. I have just about gotten out of the habit of thorough pre-washing, but I do rinse heavily soiled items.

run through short cycle with citric acid crystals(or "fruit fresh"), in soap cup. this will clean and freshen unit. if it isn't stained you may just run it through reg cycle with D/W detergent and no dishes. that should also clean well.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher leaves film on dishes


are you in a hard water area such as florida ? do you have a water softener? if so take a can of frozen concentrate orange juice and put the frozen hunk in the bottom of dishwasher and run for one cycle. the citric acid will dissolve undisolved soap . this works much better. than vinegar which will only remain through the first cycle and then drain out as for the already grey glasses wash them in a solution of equal amounts red wine vinegar and water with just a touch of dish soap using a sponge.
