How do I remove the detergent tank, so I can empty and rinse it?

The tank seems to be attached internally via a clear tube. I have already looked in the manual.

You can slide the tanks up and off of the washer, then unplug the hose from the bottom of the tank. But as mentioned below, the detergent likely has congealed in the hose. To get to both ends of the hose you will need to remove the upper case and unplug the other end of the the hose from the selector valve. The screws to release the case are located underneath. My recall is there are a couple of screws above the wheels as well so you'll need to remove the wheels and axle as well. It's not as bad as it might sound, just a bit awkward.

You have to remove the outer coverings to get down to the tank or if you can get to the bottom end of the pressure hose, you may be able to slip off he plastic supply hose to the tank and back lush up the hose and rinse the tank out. Never leave detergent in the tank, it will congeal over time and block the line.

How to repair non-functioning detergent bottle


Are you really sure it's not working? Most of these only dispense detergent when the lowest pressure spray head is attached. If that's not the problem then the next most likely thing to check for is a blockage in the tubing that connects your detergent bottle to the main unit. If this was not fully rinsed out after the last time it was used, any residual detergent remaining in the line will often solidify which results in blocking the line. Good luck

We purchased a used Jet-tech dishwasher and cannot figure out how to install the detergent dispenser. Are there technicians in the Clinton/KS, MO area who could come out to help us. We run a Bible camp.


The detergent system on the Jet-Tech machine are all very similar. Near the solenoid valve under the machine, beside the drain connection, there are two wires, one red and one blue. Those wire will run the detergent pump when the machine calls for water. Two tube are attached to the pump. when looking at the pump from the front or clear plastic can be seen, the tube on the left (arrow going up) is connected to the container with the detergent. the tube on the right (arrow down) is connected to the back of the unit to inject the detergent into the tank. Some precaution should be taken to assure that the connections are tight and not leaking. if the tube shows signs of crystals inside, it should be replaced as the detergent as crystallized within.

What type of detergent is used for a lx30c hobart undercounter dishwasher


What type of detergent is not necessarily important - anything intented for use in commercial dishwashers should be sufficient. A restaurant supply store should have something suitable for you.
Also, in case you don't already know, the LX30C is the non-booster-heater version of the LX30 (LX30H has a booster heater). Without a booster heater, you'll need to use chemical sanitizer. The LX30C should, hopefully, have a sanitizer pump installed to inject chemical sanitizer into the rinsewater stream. Most of these dishwashers also have a detergent pump to inject detergent into the wash tank and rinse aid pump for chemical rinse aid.
If present, these pumps are located in the bottom of the machine. Remove the lower front panel (2 screws) and look for the small, black plastic assemblies with 2 hoses connected to each.

if you have a cold wash, you can try that, don't use oil, you'll have a huge mess. cold water tends to break up the detergent, not expand it as hot or warm water will. Run several cycles to ensure a well cleared system. Turn the heat off as well. you could also try to use a sprayer if it will reach into the machine with cold water to diffuse the suds. then run the rinse cycle, which will drain the machine
Hope this helps

A film from the detergent seems to be left on the dishes and glasses after drying.


Look in the detergent aisle for an additive called "Glass Magic." Always use rinse aid. Adding a water softener to your house if you don't have one already. Clean your dishwasher with a dishwasher cleaning agent or something like lime away to remove any residual scum. Hope this helps.

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the...


I had the same problem as you also using Cascade Complete. It turned to a wet solid and completely cloged up. I have spent 3 days cleaning it and now have it working again. I had to spoon out what I could, but the purge method still would not wash through. I started putting in water, running a thick plastic coated wire in and moving it around. Then opened and closed the door to slosh thinks around, then took a small scoop to clear out the water and gel clumps. I kept repeating until tired. Added more water and let it set over night and started again the next day. Once the water started looking clear after soaking and digging with the wire. I ran the purge technique listed in an earlier post, and the blockage finally cleared. It now is working again. I plan to keep a close eye in the future and run the purge as a regular maintence on ocassion when the add detergent light comes on. (I wonder if Cascade changed the formula that caused this gelling, or if they have a product issue).

Have a Miele W320, during the rinse part of wash cycle, water pours from underneath the detergent drawer. What can I do to stop this happening?


Is the drawer gunged up? Are you using too much detergent?

Remove the drawer, and clean it with hot water and a brush.

Look into the empty drawer slot for any blockages and remove.

Replace drawer, try pouring hot water into the open drawer to try to dissolve and clear any blockages.

Consider using a dosing ball and adding detergent to the drum.

Detergent accidentally put into rinse dispenser


You need to use something to siphon the detergent out of the dispenser. I have plastic syringes for this type of purpose. You don't use the needle attachment.

If you cannot fit the syringe into the opening, then you may try to use clear plastic tubing to syphon out the detergent.

Once the flow of detergent stops, you should then use warm water to rinse the residue. If you have the syringe, you could use it to force water into the dispenser.

This may take a little time, but it is better than trying to disassemble stuff!

Good Luck
