NOT CLEANING PROPERLY
Thanks for using
FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer
inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125
degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature
if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will
help your wash ability issues.
Now check the
Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it
is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a
liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is
To check the
proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating
element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water
pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like
it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water
pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes
the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and
may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for
splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is
not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check
for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.
Low water fills
are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.
