SOURCE: Dishwasher does not dry the dishes thoroughly

Kayzy, The dry cycle for this model, starting with 587.14432 is approx. 37 minutes. Remove the lower toe panel and have someone verify that you are getting power to the element (120V) during the dry cycle, using heated dry. If this checks ok, remove the leads from the element and ohm it out. It should read between 23 and 25 ohms. The element will be on the left side, should be easy to get at. On the inner door, remove the vent cover by popping it out and see if there is a bunch of built up gunk in there preventing a good vent. Of course make sure you are using a rinse aid and have hot water (min 120 degrees) entering the dishwasher. Check these things out back. Kay, there wasn't a complete model posted. The only model I could come up with starts with 587.

SOURCE: Water in bottom of dish washer

you probably have something stopping the drain pump operating (like a tooth-pick or piece of plastic that won't break down in water) its a take it to pieces job i'm afraid but if you are fairly mechanically adept you can do it yourself. the drain pump is quite small and nearby to the drain outlet- you need to remove the case and release the drain from inside the unit- remove the pump itself and you'll prbably find somthing stuck in it- remove and re-assemble. In the meantime DO NOT use the dishwasher as you will 'burn out' the motor as the pump rotors are jammed.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid, new dishwasher, stopped cleaning top rack dishes

The problem most people encounter with dishwashers is a simple inability to get the dishes clean. There might be stuck-on food or residue from the detergent. A water pressure problem may be the culprit. You may need to replace the water intake valve. Another common problem is mineral build-up. If your house has hard water, the mineral build-up can clog the water jets. Clear each jet with a wire or pin, and run an empty load with some vinegar in the detergent dispenser about once a month.

Sometimes, the dishwasher has problems draining properly. There could be a clog in the drain hose, or a problem with the pump. It's also possible that the dishwater is getting too sudsy, and sensors in the washer aren't detecting the soap foam as water. This causes it to shut down the drain cycle too early. Just use less detergent.

My asko dishwasher D 1716 is leaving a white film on my glasses and other dishes. I have added Jet Dry but it has not helped. Also sometimes water leaks under the handle and runs down the front of the...


The issue is with the water not draining as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

On my d3350 it is possible to choose which tray (bottom, top or both) is cleaning.

The button is the bottom left, and above it there are two lights. As you push this button, the lghts cycle through lower tray, upper tray and the both trays. You want both lights on.

Also try this - take the spray arm out (it just snaps free) and rinse it out in case there are some blocking materials in the arm which are stopping it from spraying

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. ...

First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening.

I would suggest you buy some CLR and run it through a full heavy cycle with the washer empty. Be sure to put it in all dispenser areas and sprinkle about 1/4 cup into the washer before starting.

Model d3121 does not "heat"... when I use it the water don't be hot and the dishes doesn't dry. you can answer in french i'll try to understand ... as you can see i'm not bilingual but...

In my case, the problem was with the control card, located behind the control buttons on the front. The relay driving 120V, 10A to the heaters had one pin dissoldered, probably because of heating. It was dark around the pin. See the picture attached. The top part showd the PCB with the faulty pin marked by a red arrow; the bottom part shows the other side of the PCB with the relay itself.

Remember that this relay/pin drived 1400 W.
