Soap won't dissolve in dishwasher

My dishwasher seems to be running fine except when it's done and I open the door I find my soap tablet in the utensil holder. There is steam coming out of the dishwasher so I know it's getting hot and the soap dispenser door is open but soap packet is almost intact.

    I tried a liquid and when the dishwasher is done I find the liquid smeared down the dishwasher door and dishes are still dirty. What else can I try?

    how old is dishwasher and do you have soft water? you may have lime/calciam build up. clean inside with lime away pay close attention to the soap door and the water jets. spray them generously and let soak for a couple hours. then run without dishes a couple of times to rinse it out use soap the second time and see if that worked. hope it helped

The soap holder is opening during the wash cycle but the soap tablet is not dissolving. Any ideas?


Is the water coming on? Is water hot enough? Is washer overloaded, water jets aren't hitting the soap? Maybe try a different brand of soap tablet? Run the dishwasher in "heavy soil" mode which will use hotter water and run for longer?

We use the Cascade tablets but they don't dissolve


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Detergent tablet not dissolving.


sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

Tablet is not dissolving from my dishwasher drawer


If it drops to the bottom when you open the dishwasher door - your soap dispenser is blocked by the rack or an utencil protruding from the rack. Make sure both racks slide in all the way to the back. (hint: check the middle spray arm inlet, make sure it aligns with the tube on back.
Good luck)

Tablet falls to the bottom of tub but wont disolve


The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.

Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.

Hope this helps, Ken

My soap won't dissolve during the cycle.


You are not getting enough water or you are losing the water during wash cycle. Is you dishwasher new or older? How is it plumbed in? If it is plumbed through the floor you will have to put and air gap in to keep the water in it. All tall tub dishwasher have to be plumbed properly.

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

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean


Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket

Bosch Exxcel Auto Option/Detergent tablet does not dissolve?


It seem that your DW drain it's water by syphon action. Check if the drain hose is properly installed as a U shape; otherwise the DW can drain itself at any time, leaving the soap undissolved .
