Question about Samsung Dishwashers

1 Answer

How can you clean the filters in a Samsung DMT800RHS dishwasher?

We're getting bits of food on washed dishes and really think the filter should be cleaned. But the users manual says it's a "self-cleaning filter". It seems like it's self-cleaning debris back onto the dishes! I have not been able to find instructions on how to clean the filter. Please help!

Fixed problem after viewing 93 code but now dishes have brown film or white film. Dishes still dried on food. Have a Samsung DMT800RHS. One suggestion was to get phosphorus which is ******* for deterg


look at the arm that has the water nozzles on it to see if some of them are plugged. Also make sure the screen at the bottom of the machine isn't restricted.

Not cleaning dishes


Sounds like you are back to the old fashioned dish washing in the sink. If you need assistance, be more exact as to the problem at hand. Like it fails when I push the start button, the water won't fill the unit?

Food always gets stuck in the water spray holes pluging them up. It needs a better food filter system. We have a GLD4500N


As recommended most of the dishwashers are not equipped with this filter. But it is always recommended to clear the food off the dish/plates, wash off or wipe and put it for cleaning. The dish washer cleaning is entirely the degreasing/ sterilising of the vessels.
Hence the tip to get your dish washer in good shape is to wipe/wash off the food and load it to the trays inside.
This is my suggestion as we cannot improvise the machine. I hope this helps Good day

Dishwasher is throwing food bits back on dishes during wash. How do I clean out dishwasher?


While loading into the machine always remove the food particles from the dishes. The wash machine will clean the sticky oil grease only.

Check the drain filter in the machine and clean. Refer user manual.

IT is leaving food on the dishes


You do not have to prewash your dishes before loading them. In fact, by prewashing, you actually defeat the purpose of most dishwasher detergents. These detergents are activated by the grease and oils in food and work better. You should only scrape your plates of solid materials that are not recommended to go into a dishwasher (i.e., celery, popcorn kernels, tough chunks of meat, gristle, etc.).

If you are getting food particles on your dishes, this is known as "redeposition". Most commonly it is caused by food particles trapped in the filter of the main wash pump. You will need to remove the lower spray arm and access the filter screens and clean them of all debris.

If you need further assistance on how to disassemble your dishwasher to access the filter, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Food particles left on dishes


Many times this caused by food particles clogging the screen or blocking the jets on the spray arms. Find the screen in the bottom of your machine and clean it out. If this doesnt help, remove the spray arms and clean them out.

riff...not sure what the bits are...first, they may be food crumbs or the like. Dishwashers have macerators to grind up food particles but they have no really good way to get rid of them in the wash cycle. Scrape plates of any solids before loading them. If the material is shaped like water droplets, you may have hard water stains. Use Jet Dri or a cleaning product which claims to help and use the amount specified. Your water temp may be low...it should be 125F or better. If you can run the hot tap and put your hand under it...it isn't hot enough. You can also use the heated water setting to deal with this.

Dishwasher is leaving food particles everywhere


Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
