Wild guess, by turning off and on you have oppened the soap dispenser before the cycle starts. So, set to the cycle you want then close the door. If it does not start at your chosen cycle, advance the dial untill a click and it should start.

Soap remains on the dishes after the wash cycle is complete.


Check that the holes in the spray arms haven't blocked up and the filters in the bottom are clean. The arms may not be rotating. To check this, when the machine is washing, open the door, turn all the spray arms to face the same direction, shut the door and leave running for about 30 seconds. Open the door again and look at the position of the spray arms. They should have moved.

Soap still in large container on door at end of cycle. recently had center spinner arm and main console replaced twice. doesnt clean well. residue left in cups


residue..... check lower spinner arm and clean any bits from insideit by back washing with water, also check the pump inlet and filters.....

as for soap still in container, does the soap recepticle door open... if not just place the required amount of detergent on the lower half of the door..

If the door does open and there is still soap ing the recepticle there is definitely a water problem...

you can also try to remove both the upper and lower spinners and run the dishwasher for a couple of minutes to flush out any debris or buldup inside the lines.

A good quality dishwasher cleaner may also be wothwile trying....

Good luck!

Kenmore Dishwasher doesn't rinse? It sounds to be working fine, however, at end of cycle, dishes are still dirty, and the front door on the inside is still dirty. Obviously there is a problem here...


try opening the dishwasher during the wash cycle stop it and open it if water is in the bottom it is filling whn you open do 1 or 2 times to check to see if spry arms are spinning if they are check to see if soap dispenser is working also use dishwasher cleaner once a month available wherever tou shop for groceries in the dish soap dept. directions are on label

How do you know if your dish is working property


1. water temp must be 120+
2. soap must not be old
3. Machine must work as designed

place a cup upright on the top rack, run a few min. it should have some water in it.

Usually the spray arms are not turning with that problem. They are designed to turn by water forced out the end of the arm, much like a lawn sprinkler works.If the end holes are clogged, it wont spin. The arms should spin freely.Then check to make sure that the water didn't drain out as fast as it came in. Some D/W have a valve that will get stuck open and the water drains out during the wash cycle..no water, no wash..

On the fifth time a I hear grinding and then the mid and lower arms spin, soap streaks down the door, nothing stuck in any of the arms, 16 months old, 750.00 out of pocket for junk!

I have a GE profile dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The problem I am having with it is that it just doesnt clean the dishes. The soap sometimes doesnt alway disolve. the water is the correct temp....


Start the cycle, then after it fills with water, open the door. Move the wash arms so they all point directly to the front and put a mark on the ends with a magic marker. Close the door and let it run 10 seconds or so, and re-open the door. If any of the wash arms did not move, clean out the holes in the wash arms (seeds, candy wrappers, twist ties, bones, broken glass, etc.). You may also need to clean out the screen at the pump inlet, but usually the spray arm holes are the problem.

Soap dispenser still has the soap in it after the dishwasher cycle has ended...


do you have a salt unit fitted. I had the same problem and the repair guy had to replace the salt unit as it was blocked up. Failing that it might be the board not opening the solenoid to allow the water to be jetted through the soap dispenser.

Soap does not desolve


check that the spray arms are turning and that the holes in them are not clogged, if you line them up pointing towards the front let the machine fill then as it starts to wash open the door and you should see the arms slowing down, if they are okay then check the water level which should just lap the filter at the bottom

Water not going through spray arms


1.does motor run? no. replace motor. 2.open door and leave the bottom rack inside dw.spin the spray arm underneath the bottom rack by hand. it should spin freely without binding. if it doesnt spin freely take out the bottom rack and try again. if it does spin freely then your bottom rack is laying on your sprayarm preventing it from rotating. 3.you could also not be getting enough water into your dw.
