    thanks all for your comments, I think I have it sorted now. It appears that the micro filter was split and the pressure of the water in the system during the cycle was facing the dirty water back through. I changed the filter for £10 and all is well again. Just goes to show that it's often the simplist reasons.

My dishwasher Leaves food particles on the dishes and one the dishwasher. It appears to clean the dishes. What can I do about this?

Have you tried checking the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher, if this is blocked it will keep churning the waste matter around on each wash cycle and just drain the water away

If you have still have some hard water present, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Dishwasher is giving E1 which according to the manual is water sorce is off. We recently had turned the water off for bathroom repairs but the water has been turned back on, we have disconnected the pipes...


This is common, there may be a flood protection device that tripped in the line or sediment got into the system when the water was turned back on.

First turn the water off to the dishwasher. Take the hose or pipe off at the connection under the dishwasher, put a pan or towels under that open pipe. Slowly turn the water on and flush that line until clear. If no water comes out then you will need to do this but further back 'upstream'.

Once water comes clear, turn the valve off again reconnect the pipe/hose to the dishwasher and very slowly open the valve. If the water does not enter now you have sediment in the water inlet valve on the dishwasher itself and that valve will need replaced.

Residue on dishes, soap not disolving. tried jet

Check the water intake screen for sediment. Often if enough sediment builds up the screen becomes clogged and these symptoms present themselves.
if you send me the make/model I will tell you where the intake screen is. Probably you have to take the unit out of the cabinetry and turn it over as most of the time the intake valve is inconveniently located on the bottom of the unit.

My Maytag mdb 7 dishwasher stopped working on the same day that a Plumber came to our house to fix our toilet. He says he didn't turn off the water anywhere in the house, other than the valve beside the...

If he indeed only accessed the toiled shut off valve, then that would not affect the dishwasher.

Even if dirt/sediment got into the line to the washer somehow, it should be able to be cleared at the inlet valve to the washer.

As to you needing to replace the washer, one would need to determine what the problem is first. It could be a very simple and cheap repair.

If he indeed only shut off the toilet valve, then yes, it would be a coincidence that the washer went out the same day.

If you are on city water, then it is possible that if there is construction nearby or anything that would introduce sediment into the line upline from you, that it could have contaminated the washer.

If your toilet was having problems with water flow as well (thus your reason for calling a plumber) then I would strongly suspect that this is the case.

It is possible that both issues were caused by sediment/dirt from your city water source.
