Action Packs not dissolving

I have the same problem ~ our dishwasher is only two years old and the packs worked fine until recently. Does anyone know what could be the problem? After it runs, the pack is slightly dissolved but 3/4 of it is in tact and my dishes have a residue on them.

These packs do not dissolve good in cold water. check that the washer heats up correctly, if it does not, get that fixed.

maybe you bought a bad series of packs. maybe they do not dissolve correctly. test one in hot water (about 50°C). they should dissolve good then.

I have a hotpoint mfg#HDA2100VCC brand new and its leaving this brownish film on the residents dishes. Everything cycles fine and ive checked her water to make sure it isnt hard or carring rust deposits...


those dissolving detergent packs are the cause of 80% of warranty pump failures. i have even seen them wedge under the heating element and catch fire during the drying cycle. it could be from the detergent. but most likely it is from iron deposits in the water that you cant normally see that oxidize during the drying cycle. install a simple filter on the water suppy, change to a liquid detergent, and run the diswasher with some vinegar inside a few times after installing the filter.

Detergent packs will not dissolve


check the water temperature, run hot water at the adjacent sink before pushing start on the dishwaher, or switch to powder, is your detergent door opening ? do not block the detergent door with long objects like spatulas etc.

Detergent packs are not dissolving


Either:
  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,

Dishwasher detergent won't dissolve


Recommend you stop using the gel and switch to a brand name powder - like Electrosol or Cascade. Never use gel, gel packs or tablets in any dishwasher. Avoid untra-cheap, generic powders.
If problems continue, a service call, with them checking that the heating element is working is the follow up step.
Good Luck!

My soap won't dissolve during the cycle.


You are not getting enough water or you are losing the water during wash cycle. Is you dishwasher new or older? How is it plumbed in? If it is plumbed through the floor you will have to put and air gap in to keep the water in it. All tall tub dishwasher have to be plumbed properly.

Tablets not dissolving


Sounds like whatever soap you are using is just too much soap your dishwsher can handle. The soap "packs" are usulally an overload of soap for most dishwashers. Just a few teaspoons of regular name brand soap sometimes will cure lots of dishwsher ills!!!

Bosch Exxcel Auto Option/Detergent tablet does not dissolve?


It seem that your DW drain it's water by syphon action. Check if the drain hose is properly installed as a U shape; otherwise the DW can drain itself at any time, leaving the soap undissolved .

Won't empty, does'nt wash well


Most likely your product is fine. However those little gel-packs r the worse on dishwashers they get stuck in the system and clog and ruin dishwashers I always recommend using powder it foams less and breaks down easier in the dishwasher. Also u might have a clogged or kinked drain line. If all is fine there it is possible your motor is locked up in that case make sure the dishwasher is off take off the bottom panel. Then reach under and find the fan blades on the motor turn them a few times to unlock it replace panel. U can also try a small amount of C.L.R to clear up any grime in the system.

Detergent is not completely dissolving


brotha, there is a couple service flashes out there that affect your model. They have to do with poor washability, redesign of the upper spray arm and top spinner. This could be your problem with the spray arms not hitting the soap dispenser properly. You would want to call Sears, I think you would be covered under these service flashes. Other things to check would be water temp. It should be at least 120 degrees entering the dishwasher. If the chopper screen is clogged with gunk, this would prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arms as well. Catriver...post back.
