Ok so If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but, suddenly, your dishes aren't clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles:
1) Check your water heater's temperature dial to be sure it hasn't been changed recently.
2) Be sure dishes haven't prevented the detergent dispenser from opening properly during the wash cycles or kept the spray arms from turning, the lower arm from rising, or the spray from reaching the upper rack's dishes.
3) During the wash cycle, listen to the spray arm spinning inside. If it seems to be spinning poorly, clean out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire; wait for the machine to cool, and then remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hub cap and lifting the arm(s) off

The water does not get hot enough. I think it's the reason why dishes are not coming out clean. In normal conditions do I need to wash the dishes (like the manager of this apt. complex suggests) before I...


No you need not wash the dishes but just cleaning of the debris and then putting it in the dishwasher for proper cleaning will help you to prevent the drain from getting blocked.

First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

When we open dishwasher theres standing water in the drain area and it smells bad this is after washing aload dishs look clean but inside stinks


After you run a load of dishes put 1cup of CLR or vinegar (white) and run a quick wash.no dishes,after running dishes clean out spray arm and clean strainer,use a rinse agent like finish, and spray off dishes before loading.About 35yrs. ago I use to be a dishwasher as one of my first job's and if you did'nt spray the dishes and scrap them off before loading,the dishes would not come out clean,And after each shift the dish washer would be cleaned out.

Not cleaning dishes.


check if some dirt got in the arms of the washer as sometime this will slow the flow of water and not allow the pressure to clean the dishes well

Dish Washer soap does not dispense during wash


You don;t list the make and model number or its aproximate age.
The simpelest cause is switching to an ultra-cheap dry detergent. Recommed you use a name brand powder (like Electrosol or Cascade) Never use gel or tablets, ever.
Check all spray arms for blockages. Now is a good time to remove the filter (non trivial but do-able on most dishwashers.)
Clean empty dishwasher by filling a bowl or large cup with white vinegar and placing it in the dish rack. Run a short cycle with no detergent added. You may need to repeat.
If problems persist, the pump motor is probably failing. Schedule a service call or consider replacement of DW. Good Luck!

GE PDW9700 - The dishes do not get cleaned


Same as above problem: I have had this dishwasher for less than 4 years and the dishes as of about 2 years ago stopped getting cleaned. I use the recommended dish liquid and rinse and lightly clean the dishes before I put them in.
What a piece of junk!! gs

White film on dishes


Experience : 30 years in dish washing as a professional instructing hospitals and restaurants.
It is not necesaasry to cover the heating element as long as sufficient water is present so as to not STARVE the water pump.
Listen to the sound of water serging with the machien running. If it is contant you have enough water if the sound comes and goes then the pump is serging . either lyou have a low water level or CLOGGED strainer in the bottom of the machine (inside).

you might also open the door real fast during the wash and check for water splashing and flows---- you might get wet but this way works .(wear protective eye shields)

water levels can be raised by BENDING the tab on the bottom of the float which controls water level...much like a toilet tank float.
Also finally if soap levels are too high the soap will not rinse off regardless of the amount of "rinse fluid you use.
