LG Tromm WM2233HW- Problem with oily residue on clothes

Use warm water and powdered detergent. Leave the door open in between cycles and it will be clean as a whistle in a week... Powdered detergent is HE also, don't believe the hype, stop wasting your money on useless chemicals to rinse away the garbage chemical soaps you are being ripped-off by... Hopefully, the liquid detergent hasn't corroded the washtub and drive shaft so badly it is oozing slime!

Hello I have a dishwasher HOOVER HD 95 M .... I have a problem in my cups and plates remain granules preparation something to do

Check the filtering system and use line filters to eliminate particles that are in your water from entering the washer. Check all of the ports on the spray arm and clean them out. Be aware of the chemicals used to clean dishes as some tend to crystalize when heated and coat dishes. Check that the rinse cycle is working properly and manage your settings accordingly.

Model WF7700N6W1 - front loader - smell? Rubber seal inside door peels back a bit to reveal buildup of gunk between seal and inside frame? retaining water here?

Ok, nothing to worry about. You have bacteria growing in your machine. Clean out the slime from the door seal using a soft cloth and soapy water. DON'T use any harsh chemicals such as bleach !
Remove your detergent drawer (if possible) and clean it thoroughly - a dishwasher will do this very well. Disconnect your machine from the power supply and clean thoroughly inside the space where the dispenser drawer was, using a toothbrush or larger nylon brush and a soft, soapy cloth.
Using liquid detergents all the time can cause a build up of residue over time, which gives the bacteria and mould somewhere to grow. So try a hot wash cycle (without a load) using a powder detergent intended for whites. Washing powders contain brighteners and chemicals which are hostile to mould and bacteria.
Finally, leave your dispenser drawer and loading door open every night to allow fresh air to circulate through the entire machine. This will reduce the number of cleaning occasions needed.

I just want to know is detergent we use for wasing the utinsils is harmful to our health we should directely use the utinsils without washing it again or not?/

The chemicals are very powerful, but the machine goes through a thorough rinse cycle with rinsing chemicals as well, plus a very hot drying cycle. If you wash the dishes again you are more likely to get harmful stuff on them than if you left them as they come out of the machine.

Dishes are not rinsing clean - leaving film and soap scum - seems as if not enough water preasure for rinse cycle or cables are clogged

I suspect that something has changed, say your water has become different if your water authority has changed the added chemicals or the source for your water supply. Another thing is the hot water heater may not be heating your water sufficently to do a through washing. This could happen if one of your heating elements have malfunctioned unless you heat water with gas. Also did you change your dishwasher detergent? Adding a rinse chemical to the cycle may help.

My am-14 is eating the detergent. It use to last a month now less than one week. Is there a soleniod valve thatisn't closing?

The over consumption of detergent could be caused by a couple of things. If the detergent is dispensed by an external chemical pump, the detergent probe may not be working correctly. The probe will cause the pump to dispense too much chemical if it is dirty or has hard water build up on it. You can check the probe and clean it of any debris. The probe is located in the bottom of the wash tank. Most chemical suppliers take care of these sorts of issues at no cost to the customer. If your rinse solenoid is not closing properly, this could cause the detergent to flow down the standpipe (overflow drain). This would make the chemical pump dispense detergent more often then usual. An easy way to check if your rinse soleniod is stuck open is to look at your rinse arms if water is flowing out of them and doesn't stop this would mean your solenoid is in need of repair.
Kind Regards

Hey traboH - thanks and we do need to get a chemical supplier - but this machine does not have automatic dispensers - how else might I add soap? Thanks, robin879

It's acceptable to just pour the proper amount of detergent right into the unit every time you wash a load. However, there are two things to consider.

1. Without pumps, it is important to ensure that your final rinse temperature is, at minimum, 180 degrees for proper sanitation of your dishware. If you have a LXiGC, as you've indicated, you'll have trouble doing this because that unit does not have it's own booster heater to maintain such high temps. Usually, sterilization is achieved through the use of a chemical sanitizer, delivered via a pump during the rinse cycle, on that particular model.

2. Also, it will be impossible to properly deliver rinse aid (jet-dry) to the machine without pumps. This may lead to noticeable "spotting" of your glassware.

Adding pumps to the unit is an option I would seriously consider. Your most economical route would be to have your chemical company install their pumps externally. Your local Hobart office can offer you the addition of chemical pumps, as well, but you'll pay a premium price for them.

I'll add, if you do decide to get the pumps, insist that the proper ratio of chemical is being delivered (achieved via pump programming). It's not uncommon for the pumps to be improperly programmed and excessive amounts of chemicals consumed. These guys are, after all, in the chemical SALES business.

I have purchased a business - with a Hobart LXi - and no manual. I can't figure out what soap etc to use - or how it gets into the dishwasher!

Contact your local chemical supplier such as EcoLab or AutoChlor to purchase the proper chemicals. Use ONLY commercal dish washing chemicals. Residential detergents like Cascade do not dissolve fast enough and WILL, in time, cause you trouble if used in the LXi.

There should be three colored plastic tubes at the rear of your machine. Red is to be put in a container of liquid detergent, Blue is for rinse aid, and white/clear is for sanitizer. Your chemical salesman should be able to show you how it's done at no charge.

You may also want to register here then download the manuals for the LXi dish machine.

All the best.
