Your water is not hot enough. At least 140 degrees.

The items in the dishwasher are feeling "gritty" and are not clean at the end of the wash cycle


Remove the filter from the lower front section of the wash tub and clean it out.
Then start a wash cycle with no dishes and no soap.
Once the water fills and starts washing,open the door and pour 1 quart of white vinegar in the wash tub.
Close the door to resume the wash cycle.
Let the machine run a complete cycle to the end to help clean out the water ports.

The soap dish opened, but the dishes were not cleaned. The soap remains on the door even after two or three wah cycles. Checked all of the buttons.


Since you mention that your dishwasher has a dispenser has a flap that opens but detergent does not come out, the problem could be the wash water is not getting to it.

Can you confirm if during wash cycle the water is circulating especially through the top wash arm.

Keep a small container on the top rack and see if there is water collected in it at the end of cycle. Alternatively run the dishwasher with door open (you will have to find a way to enable the door switch inside the latch).

Please post a comment to confirm what you observe.

Soap residue on dishes after running dish washing cycle


Too much soap for the load or quality of the soap. Also check the inlet water flow system. Clean the filter attached to the machine body at the end of the inlet tube.

The soap dispenser opens but the soap is not dispensed and the dishes do not get cleaned. Can you help?


Make sure that there is nothing blocking the soap door from opening fully when the dishwasher is shut. This happened to me and I also thought that the soap door was opening during the cycle when it actually only partially opened during the wash and then popped open fully when I opened the dishwasher at the end of the cycle. So some, but not all, of the soap was used.

Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..

Dishwasher does not clean. soap door does not open every time.


Well the 2nd part of your question is probably the the reason it doesn't clean. If the soap door doesn't open then the dishes will probably not be cleaned. So.. I would focus on why the door doesn't open first.. is it sticking from old soap residue? If so, clean the dispenser with white vinegar and cycle it a few times without detergent and use the hottest/sanitary setting.. Then make sure you are using an approved dishwashing detergent for yuour wash cycle. Add some detergent to the dispenser and try cycling it without any dishes .. does the door open? If no, then you need to resolve that first.. If it does open, try running a cycle with about 1/2 the normal dish load and see if the door opened and the dishes came out clean.. Routinely, check and clean the drain filter so you aren't redistributing the food sediment from the previous load all over the next load of dishes.. Hope that helps..

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Dishes are not clean due to insufficient water. Arms are clean, strainer is clean, water supply is OK,some soap is still in opened dispenser


Disassembled solenoid, found plugged inline strainer (caused by water shut-down in building to replace recirc. pump) Pulled and flushed filter basket, problem solved. Solenoid must be removed to access filter which is in sol. body. I hope this can help anyone who does'nt have a tech manual or flow diagram.
