SOURCE: tablet door dosn't open during cycle

It sound like a detergent cup issue (the door doesn't open at time) A very simple test for it is to place a tablet on the bottom of the dishwasher for a full cycle and to see what happen to the tablet. In case the tablet will be dissolved : - The detergent cup can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening at time. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. - The detergent cup opened by a bi-metal switch or a wax motor located inside your dishwasher door(behind the detergent cup). If cup's cleaning will not solve the problem, you should replace the bi-metal switch or the wax motor (depend which of them is used in your machine). Good luck !

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle

I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser sticks

Your soap is clotting because there isn't enough water being sprayed around inside.  The water spray washes the soap out of the dish, if all is working well.  My machine had the same problem.  I had sufficient water level, but the spray head wasn't spinning very well.  I found the end-most hole in the spray bar to be plugged.  It is the end hole that provides a jet that makes the head spin.  I cleaned a bunch of debris out of the hole and the mchine started working and cleaning like it was new.  That was quite an axccomplishment since the machine is 15 years old.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser not opening

An automatic dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif detergent dispenser door can become stuck for a few different reasons. Some problems are easy to fix, while some require more work. Repairs are basically the same no matter what brand of automatic dishwasher you have, although specific parts might be required. Fortunately, even if the detergent dispenser needs to be replaced, the problem is not an emergency. The dishwasher will clean dishes fine even with a stuck detergent dispenser.

    Fixing a Stuck Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser
  1. Step 1 Move the basket that holds silverware as far from the detergent dispenser as possible, or make sure no tall items are blocking the dispenser. Also, keep other items such as plates and pans away from the dispenser. Anything that winds up touching the dispenser during the wash cycle can cause the dispenser door to stay closed. Run the dishwasher to see if this solves the problem.
  2. Step 2 Remove the front door panel according to your instruction manual, or find the manufacturer's instructions online, which will probably be in a PDF file. The panel is typically held on by 6 to 8 screws along the edge, which you can see when the door is open. With most models, you won't need to remove the screws at the bottom of the door, which are part of the hinge assembly.
  3. Step 3 Clean the detergent dispenser thoroughly from the inside of the dishwasher and the exterior side as well. Accumulated detergent and other material can interfere with the spring mechanism or halt the pivot action of the door. Use very hot water and a micro-sized brush. You also can use a mix of hot water and vinegar.
  4. Step 4 Most dispensers have a bimetallic strip or switch, attached by screws, which triggers the door release. With the front door panel removed, locate the switch, and push on it gently with a screwdriver until the dispenser door opens. You might simply need to adjust the alignment of the switch.
  5. Step 5 Purchase a new switch if re-aligning the old one does not fix the problem. Typically, these switches cost under $10. See Resources for a link to different manufacturers where you can buy the part.
  6. Step 6 Label the two wires connected to the switch so you can correctly reconnect them afterward, and then remove them from the terminals by holding the slip-on connectors --- not the wires --- and pulling firmly. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers for a better grip. Then remove the switch from the dispenser by removing the screws holding it in place. Connect the wires to the terminals of the new switch, and attach the new switch to the detergent dispenser. Replace the door panel.
  7. Step 7 Run the dishwasher again to see if the switch replacement has done the trick. If not, decide whether to replace the entire dispenser according to the manufacturer's instructions, or call a repair technician.

I have a AEG Favorit 65011 VI (dishwasher) which stops in the middle of a programm an shows error ",60" that is not mentioned in the Users Manual. Can you please help me?


The temperature must increase by a certain amount at each step.
If there is no temperature increase during three minutes, the electronics will generate "Heating Time Out" or fault code i60.
In this case program will continue to the end without heating and the washing result will probably be unsatisfactory.
Could be: Heating element faulty; intervention of safety
thermostats (open); faulty wiring; NTC sensor (poor
thermal contact); insufficient water circulating in the
tub; washing faulty pump (impeller stripped); circuit
board faulty.

Favorit 40010 vi dishwasher the machine door opens during the wash except on eco 50 wash


Strange it remains closed on one stage? Usually a door that opens by itself is due to misalignment, and then gain water will leak onto the floor. If someone banged into the side of the door and moved the washer a slight bit, the locking tab under the work counter may not be in a positive position. If the tab is bent slightly up, the door may barely make contact and lock when in operation. A simple movement of the washer could pop the door open. Other than that, any electrical dysfunction would require a professional servicemans attention.

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER CLEAN LIGHT FLASHING WILL NOT WASH OR DO ANYTHING


Do what 'mrrevo'l says to reset the dishwasher, and next time, try not to open the door during the wash cycle. Make sure that all the cycles are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door during the drying cycle.

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.

Dishwasher just draines and nothing else??


this sounds like it could be the heater element has gone faulty, it is quite difficult to get to test it with it being built in, but basically gain access to the underneath of the appliance and you can test it with a test meter for open circuit, it is also possible that a wire has either come off or broken, the pump pumping out is like a safety mechanism, the eco wash may work because this uses no heat? (some models) the answer i have given you is based on the info you have supplied if i have helped please rate me, thank you, please work safe unplug when working on appliances
