Soap is not completely washing all the soap powder away.


Stop using the powdered detergent. It has a reputation for clogging up machines and pumps. ALWAYS use the liquid detergent.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

After the dishwasher runs there is a lot of soap left in the soap dispenser. I've tried powder and liquid. Liquid is a bit better. I've tried using less soap but there still is a lot left. Also my glasses...


With the LG LDF6810 model, this is not a common problem. Please try the following test, With and empty dishwasher, add a small to normal amount of dry dishwasher powder and run an (empty) load.
Check to see if any soap remains in the dispenser cup.
If any remains, here are three things to do: 1.) Upgrade your dishwasher detergent to a name brand powder (e.g.: Electrosol or Cascade)
2.) When you load the dishwasher, do not place large items in the front, near the door/soap dispenser.
3.) Before you load the dirty dishes for the next several loads, with your hand, turn both the upper and lower wash arms so they point at the door. Load as you normally do and push the racks fully in. Before you close the door, spin both the upper and lower arms and confirm that they spin freely and neither hits anything. if either does not spin freely, pull out the rack and arrange so the arms can spin freely.
I find that the only time I have left over detergent powder is when the wash arms do not spin freely.
This is a common problem on most every energy star/water conserving dishwashers.
Please report back what you find, OK?

Powdered dishwasher detergent stays stuck in dispenser after wash


There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.

Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

Where can I find a mnaual that can tell me how to de-lime a Hobart CRS66A Dishwasher?


I doubt that the user manual covers de-liming the Hobart Dishwasher.   If I owned this (fine, expensive) dishwasher, this is what I would do.
1.) Discard any generic, ultra-cheap detergent.  Stop using gels or tablets and only use powders.  Buy a box of brand name powder (like Electrosol or Cascade)  You will be amazed how much difference that will make because the newest generics have mineral bulk added that build up faster then hard water does on both the stainless steel enclosure plus the silverware and even plates.  White patches.  I LOVE generic products and saving money, but low end dishwasher powder is one place I no longer choose a generic product.
2.) Add two cups of white vinegar to the empty dishwasher and leave it there until the morning.  Run a quick cycle with no detergent added.  The vinegar will be pumped out immediately after you begin this quick cycle.
3.) As soon as the dishwasher fills with water during that quick cycle and begins a wash cycle, add two cups of white vinegar and close the door and allow to run the full wash cycle.
4.) When the dishwasher finishes the drain cycle and begins to fill again, open the dishwasher and check the enclosure for remaining "lime" deposits.  If they remain, keep adding 2 cups white vinegar each time the dishwasher refills and begins to wash/rinse again.
You should be delighted with the results. Long term, you should consider adding a whole house water softener and then reduce the amount of dishwasher (and laundry) detergent by one half.  Amazing increase in quality of life by adding a water softener.  You will be delighted.
Please post back with you results, OK?  Good Luck!

After the final rinse there are still food particles or even small pieces what appears to be like sand on the dishes.


By far, especially on water/energy conserving dishwashers like the LDS5811, the most common reason for poor cleaning on a dishwasher that has been working well is the household has switch detergents from a name brand to an ultra cheap powder. Usually, switching back to high quality powder (e.g. Electrosol) your problems go away.
If that does not fix the problem after two loads, do this: Start the empty DW (with no detergent added) and open the door after the hot water has begun flowing in. Open the door and add up to two cups of white vinegar. You can use the quick cycle.
Use the dishwasher normally.
If problems continue, open the jetdry compartment and dial it down to a lower number.
Get back to me with what works best for you. There are more draconian solutions if these fail you.
Good Luck!

Doesn't clean dishes completely, especially the top rack. also it doesn't completely empty out the detergent dispenser.


To the people here with the poor cleaning problems:
Try these steps:
Buy a small box of Cascade or Electrosol diswashing powder. Use only it for 30 days and report back. Do not use gel, tablets or ultra low end detergent. I have proven that ultra cheap powder WILL cause problems.
Also, fill a bowl or large cup with white vinigar, place it in the bottom shelf of of the empty dishwasher. Do not add any detergant. Run a normal or quick cycle.
If you still have poor cleaning, it is time to call for service or remove the filter beneath the lower rack and search for debris that will need to be removed.
Please report back with your results and the make/model of the dishwasher. Good Luck!
