Question about Sears 24 in. 14181 Built-in Dishwasher
Just bought a new dishwasher. The soap doesn't rinse off at all. We've tried powder and liquid. Could the problem be with the water softener not working?
It may seem obvious, but have you made sure the washer gets water, and within the appropriate preasure? (see manual for this, but most homes are well within "limits")
Make sure no objects obstruct the rotating arms. Long spoons and large plates can do this, or also smaller utensils that drops through the bottom.
If the top propeller folows the shelf out, make sure it connects to the pipes in the back of the washer properly, and check to see if there are transportation plugs there that should be removed.
One other thing to check is if there is a separate lever on the tap to control water to the dishwasher. If there is, make sure it is open, and that it's open "the right way". Mine has both hot and cold water option (to save energy by heating water externally, say by solar power), but only the cold water is connected. If I turn it open on "red", the washer gets no water.
