Usually on the floor there is a grill that strains the water. You may have a buildup of particles there. Your soap maybe old, you may have run out of the liquid that stops spots, or your water may not be hot enough. If the dw is more than 18 months old you probably need to rinse the dishes better before you put them in...especially rice, potatoes, anything with starch in it

Samsung dishwasher sprays gunk all over my glasses. When the cycle is over they are coated with dried bits of gunk. Dishes are dirtier than when they went in.



I have the same problem with gunk and spots on dishes. I took apart the parts at bottom covering the heating element. There is all sorts of gunk on everything. I cleaned it all, even under gaskets and filter screen. I am neither sure what caused it nor how to prevent it. My thinking maybe the water source. Water in my town has gotten worse in quality and has bad smell. I use a major water filter system for drinking water. My thought is that the heating element is drying the water up and leaving sediment from water.

My diswasher has alot of water in it after we run the dishers thru. May be a clog? How can i check if there is a clog?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

There isabout 2 inches of water left in the bottom of the dishwasher after i run a cycle , and some food bits left in the water how do i drain the waterand remove the food bits? A manual was never left...


The filter is probably blocked.
It is inside the base of the machine.
Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

Bosch dishwasher leaving food stains


You may be experiencing this problem due to the soap you use or too much soap. Run a cycle without soap but put a cup of white vinegar in the machine. Then just use Cascade dishwashing packets. If your filters are clean and the pump is working that should take care of your problem. Do NOT use the inexpensive soaps on the market and especially don't use more than what is recommended. This leaves a film on your dishes and will cause it not to clean or rinse well. (I don't have any connection to Cascade - I just know it works very well. Costco brand packets also work well.)

Dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


You are not getting enough water in the machine. The inlet valve is probably plugged with sand or something of the sort. You will need to replace the inlet valve.
