Question about Dishwashers

The spring loaded catch that locks the flap on the rinse aid compartment has broken on my dishwasher, this coincided with the tablet not being dissolved as the washer went through its cycle. is this connected or a seperate issue? Also can it be repaired or is a new machine needed.The model is Whirlpool ADG722

The catch should be replaceable.
The timing is most likely coincidence.

What do the Tecnik dishwasher symbols mean? I have a unit not working with a warning light on I cant find in the manual.


The little star means you've run out of rinse-aid. See the flap that's next to your tablet dispenser, it has the same star on the lid, inside there you can refill the rinse-aid by pouring it into the tiny gap next to the dial! The dial setting allows you to change the flow of rinse-aid...the light will then go off. However, I've yet to find out what the light with the two directional arrows means! Ill post when I know!

My new dishwasher leaves a white residue on my pots. pans and stainless flatware. I have not changed soap. Could the water not be hot enough?


Check the incoming water quality. If water is hard and having calcium content this could happen. Use water softeners in the inlet water to the machine.

If dish washer salt compartment available fill with the special salt meant for dish washers.

Check rinse aid compartment and fill rinse aid. Or use two in one soap tablet.

My Dishwasher leaves a white film on dishes.


check inlet water quality. If more calcium deposits in the water this could happen. Try using water water softeners.

If provision for dish washer salt check and add salt. ( not kitchen salt )

Finally check whether rinse aid compartment is filled with the liquid. If you are tablet, extra rinse aid not needed. Try all the above.

If i use combination tablets in dishwasher do i need salt & rinse aid, thank you.


Hi,

The combination tablets are very convenient and do work well but you will still need to use salt and rinse aid for the best results. The reason for this is that every dishwasher has a specific time or times that it needs that chemical (rinse aid or salt) to be released. The tablets will release it but maybe not at the best times.

Where do I put salt into a G665 model


Salt and rinse aid are low if the indicator light is on.

Salt is placed in a compartment in the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. It has a round approx 10cm diameter screw cap.

Rinse aid goes in under a flap in the inside of the door near the powder dispenser

Put rinse liquid detergent in dishwasher rinse aid compartment.


I did the same thing with my Maytag dishwasher, several times actually, before realizing I was putting blue dish soap in the rinse aid compartment which then wouldn't empty. Then my Maytag started making ominous noises during the rinse cycle (appliance guy said it was "cavitation" noise).

Appliance guy wanted to replace the whole detergent/rinse aid compartment but since he told me the noise was probably caused by the dish soap stuck in the rinse aid compartment, I decided to try to get rid of it first. Here is the method that worked for me; it took most of a day but saved me parts & labor:

1. Get some white vinegar--I used nearly a quart.
2. Fill the rinse aid compartment to brim with the vinegar (overfill) but don't put cap on
3. Raise the dishwasher door slowly until the vinegar drains into the lower part of the chamber (at least this is how my Maytag worked)
4. Agitate the contents as best you can by rapidly shaking the dishwasher door up & down.
5. I also used a small plastic medicine dropper jammed into small openings on each side of the rinse aid compartment to agitate the vinegar by squeezing air into them.
6. Drain the compartment by closing the dishwasher door (move it to full vertical)--vinegar will drain into the bottom of the dishwasher.
7. Repeat above steps a couple times, then fill again w/vinegar, put the cap on and let it stand for awhile. Then drain and repeat the whole routine several times.
8. Blue-colored vinegar will come out which is a good sign (or whatever color your dish soap was).
9. After awhile, I started pouring generous amts of very hot tap water thru the rinse aid compartment, alternating with white vinegar. (No reason you can't use hot vinegar also.)
10. Eventually, all the blue stuff came out & the see-thru levels of the rinse aid compartment were completely clear/empty.
11. Run the dishwasher (I decided to not put any rinse aid in). I got some overfoaming (from the washed out soap) the first time I ran it which I probably could have remedied by adding more vinegar & possibly salt, but the noises were gone!
I just ran the cleaned out dishwasher a 2nd time & it was back to its quiet self with no overfoaming.

Takes some patience but hey, beats a big repair bill!!

Rinse aid not being released


Most likely the actuator for the rinse aid dispenser is not functioning.

Hi there!

I've found theSpec Sheet for you. This will tell you what your model is and what it does - Click here

I suggest you email their customer service desk for a copy of the guide to be mailed out to you, as I can't locate a PDF version.
Their link is below -

In the meantime, You will need dishwasher salt, detergent and rinse aid.
Salt is salt whatever price you pay for it, But dishwasher salt is made into large granules. ( As you're on a yacht it seems ironic you have to buy salt, but there you go)
This will normally be put into a screw cap in the base of the machine inside. You may have to lift out a filter tray to see it.
Fill up with around a kilo. Expect water to come out as you do this. Don't worry - that's normal.

The rinse aid is normally filled on the door panel. Expect a little funnel with numbers near it - just top it right up or to a mark, or an indicator which changes colour. No harm in overfilling - just wasteful.

For your situation, I'd recommend dishwasher tablets that are plastic wrapped - so they dont get damp.
This should go into a drawer or flap on the door, but if not, put it in the utensil rack - it will clean just as well on standard washes, just omit the first rinse if there is one, or load up in stages - rinsing untill you have a full load, then pop a tablet in there before washing.

If this has helped you, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thank you.
