Follow the steps below to ensure proper dishwasher detergent selection and usage.

Use only powder, liquid or tablet detergent designed specifically for automatic dishwashers. Any other types may cause a sudsing and as a result, poor wash performance and possibly suds and water on your kitchen floor. GE recommends either Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® detergents.


Use the right amount of detergent for the job. Soft hot water requires less detergent - perhaps a quarter of a cup in the main cup. Very hard water requires a full main cup and a full open cup to get good wash performance. Conditions between these require judgment. Use enough to get the job done, but don't use more than you need.


Too much detergent in very soft water will cause etching of glassware. This is a permanent clouding of the glass. If you experience this condition, use less detergent.


Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Store the detergent in container away from moisture to prevent lumps. Do not put detergent in the cup until you are ready to run a cycle. If powder detergent gets old or lumpy, throw it out; it will not clean effectively. Liquid detergents do not age.


As a rule of thumb:
Harder water requires more detergent

Cooler water requires more detergent

Softer water requires less detergent

Hotter water requires less detergent

My Indesit washer model no IWC61651 ECO fills with water but does not do the wash cycle will run for hrs keep filling water but programme never moving


Lynne,

The drain hose for the washing machine is pushed too far down the standpipe causing the water to siphon out of the machine. Look at the diagram below:

-make sure standpipe is at least 18-30inches high
-only push drain hose in 4-6inches

Insinger commercial dishwasher ...water keeps overflowing when unit is off. cannot find a repair manual for GS 14


Most likely a leaking fill valve...the seat may be worn out or there may be some debris in it causing it to not fully close.

Perhaps Insinger offers a valve rebuild kit. parts@insingermachine.com

There's usually a little drain hole tucked away out of sight at the lowest point of the gusset between the inner and outer seals. Before you try anything else, suggest you check this hasn't got blocked with wet lint (the place I'm trying to describe is the bit that's filling up with manky water). A.
