Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Looks more like mucous or tree sap

I agree with the characterization of this appliance as a dish-dirtier! I am notorious for rinsing my dishes thoroughly, so much so that many visitors ask me why I would use a dishwasher afterwards! However, after using my apartment dishwasher the first time, my dishes came out with a dark brown, semi-solid paste splattered all over them. Unappetizing!!! I hand washed the dishes three times (with dish soap) but the "snot" just smears around regardless how intensively I scrub. I am to the point where I may have to throw my dishes out! Ggggrrrrrr. Meanwhile I've run the dishwasher repeatedly empty in order to try to get rid of the tree-sap-like material but it just moves around. HELP!!!

    So I guess at the end of the day, I need to read the owners manual (which I don't have because I am not the first tenant in the building) and figure out the solution on my own. Hhhhhmmm.

Hi there,

Internal filters
Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning. 


Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements. 


If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem.

Thanks

If he Dishes Are Not Clean:

- Have you put the right amount of detergent into the dispenser?

- Is the wash cycle suitable for the dishes you have placed inside the
appliance?
- Are the filter and microfilter clean?

- Can the sprayer arms turn freely?

This is how the manual helps.

Dishes are always dirty, maybe even dirtier after running dishwasher. has hot water, lower arm moves.


Check the outlet holes on both spray arms for clogs. If necessary, remove the spray arms, clean out the holes and empty out any debris inside the spray arms. Verify that the upper arm is turning also.

If the machine does not drain completely at the end of the cycle, the pump drain outlet is partially blocked and you are retaining dirty water for the next load.

You may have a chemistry problem - inferior soap, empty rinse agent dispenser, or extremely hard water.

Improper arrangement of the dishes can prevent some from being washed. Make sure no dish blocks the spray to another.

Manual for hotpoint how to work it


  • Load the appliance with dirty dishes, placing soiled pots and pans on the lower rack where they will be subjected to the most vigorous cleaning. Glassware and dishwasher-safe plastics should go on the top rack. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before loading them in the Hotpoint appliance, unless the dishes have been sitting for awhile and the food particles have dried.

  • Fill the detergent compartment with your preferred brand of dishwashing detergent, and add glass rinse solution to the rinse reservoir on the inside of the door if your model is equipped with one, then close the door to lock in place.

  • Select the cycle you wish to use and press the button. For pots and pans, use the heavy-duty cycle. Normal wash is fine for dishes and utensils.

  • Save on your energy bill by running the dishwasher only when it is full and by allowing the dishes to air dry instead of using the heat dry function on the appliance.

    Why is my dish washer leaving food on my dishes that i loaded rinsed off?some dishes come out dirtier than i put them in there.


    It is almost always because you have blocked the hole where the sprayer goes up through the middle of the dishwasher. If it cannot pop up the dishes will not only not clean, but the food will just deposit onto the dishes especially the upper rack.

    The dishes in the top end up covered in baked on residue after cycle completed. They are dirtier after washing than before. As if bits from below are splashing up during the cycle and not being rinsed off.


    The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

    Dishes not rinsing well,


    I would check the bottom drain area. Sometimes food can stay down there and block the drain or get back around onto the next load.

    White Residue


    most likely it is your detergent. palmolive eco is notorious for leaving a white chalky residue on dishes. try this out before calling a service tech: put unclean glasses in the dishwasher and in your soap dish and rinse cycle cup put 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar. if it cleans (or improves) your dishes, then your detergent is the culprit.
