Question about Electrolux Dishwashers
3 in1 detergent tablet is not dissolving. At the end of the program when the dishwasher door is opened, the detergent dispenser door flops open and drops out a slightly mushed 3 in 1 detergent tablet. Hence the dishes are not washed.
I would like to find out two things:
1. How is the detergent tablet normally dissolved during the cycle. Does the door open to let it out at some point or is it dissolved through the grid in the detergent dispenser door?
2. Why is the tablet not being dissolved?
Many thanks in anticipation.
I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.
Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.
The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.
Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.
Hope that helps and best regards!
