Soundl like you're not getting water going into the dishwasher. Check out the water inlet valve.

Broken Timer? My OLD Kitchen Aid Quiet Scrub Dishwasher no longer advances through cycles automatically--I have to turn the knob manually for every step. It works fine other than that.


Hi Spring

All depends where you are and wether you can get Parts.
Is the timer accessible?
Timer is driven by a small clock motor.
Could it be fixed or lubricated.
Give it a service and save money!
Good luck

White residue on dishes


This has become a huge problem and a big misunderstanding on what the white dried residue is on your dishes.....IS it hard water probably not . Due you use liquid or powder soap and fill both soap compartments !!!!ow<br /> <br /> well here is a solution first stop using to much soap!!! <br /> most people only need no more than a tablespoon of soap.... powder or liquid..total... dont forget that powder soap can go bad in those card board boxes in a humid enviorment,,,( under the sink) remove and discard any soap that's clumpy and pour rest in a tupperware dish...<br /> <br /> so here is how to remove white residue off dishes...<br /> <br /> Fill your kitchen sink with hot water no soap and 1 cup of vinegar let dishes soak dont let water cool scour dishes in sink no soap rinse them and air dry all dishes .... some dishes may be ruined due to how long white residue had been on them called etching..... now we need to clean the dishwasher start dishwashere like normal no soap and let run for few seconds when dishwasher starts to fill open door and pour in atleast 2 cups of vinegar close door and let dishwasher run cycle repeat necessary till residue is of wash arms racks door and cabinet walls ... these steps need to be repeated in most cases a few times ...

Dishwasher suds up and leaks during wash


Suds in a dishwasher usually come from using too much soap or the wrong kind. Soap can build up over times causing problems. First start a cycle.Do not add detergent or any dishes.When it starts washing, pour a cup of vegetable oil directly into the tub. This will cut the existing soap suds. You may need to try this a couple time before the dishwasher will drain. After all suds have been removed, load you dishwasher and start a cycle filling the detergent cup up half way. If it goes through the cycle with no problems, you should be all set. Still have the problem? A rinse aid dispenser that dispenses too much rinse aid will also cause the dishwasher to suds up. You can remove the dispenser from the door, flush it out and reinstall. Make sure you turn the circuit breaker off before taking the door apart. After rinsing it out, do not add rinse aid. Try the dishwasher and see if the problem goes away. I've seen people accidentally put liquid dish detergent in dispensers too. A dishwasher that has suds is apt to leak. Fix your suds issue and you most likely will fix you leak

Dishes seem to have a powery residue on them after they're clean


Check inlet water quality for hardness. If salt chamber is provided, fill the chamber with salt meant for washing machine.

Use the recommended wash soap.

Check rinse aid and fill if required.

i have seen a lot of dishwashers that have this problem if they have a flip open lid for the soap .. often its caused by the top adjustable tray blocking the soap door from opening .. i put a camera inside to figure out what was happening ..in some cases all i had to do was raise the top basket .and make sure the basket is fully back before closing the main door .. it still blocks the soap door but allows it to open far enough to get the detergent washed out .....also i had to avoid putting large items in the corner where the dispenser is located .. they dont block the door but do reduce the water flow that could otherwise get into the cracked open soap door .. i reported this problem to my dealer .. and he stated that he didnt really want to know .. if he knows then he is obligated to do something about it .. which he claims he cant .. i demonstrated the problem on several brands at the store to whoever would listen .. some dishwashers have a sliding or rotating soap door .. those work better .. a few have a cut out in the top basket to clear the soap door .. .. the design of many washers are so similar that you might believe they are all made by the same manufacturer .with the same error in design . many seem to have that problem .. when the door doesnt open properly then the soap may become wet but not desolved .. somtimes it does partially desolve in the rince cycle .. i would think that is a hazzard .. you would have soap residue left on your dishes that you might ingest .. the dishes might look clean however so you may not even know anything was wrong ... letters to the manufacturers got me nowhere .. we struggled with that machine for a year .. we learned the tricks to make it work but during a big party our guests and relatives didnt know that .. there we were ready to serve with all dirty dishes ..after that happend a few times we bought another new dishwasher .. but the one delivered had the same problem .. what frustration .. so we sprung for a really good unit from bosch .. it has a sliding door and works perfectly .. very happy now ..

Husband mis filled ge profile washer dispeser. can we use mixed solution or should we throw it out


Did he overfill the soap dispenser with extra automatic dishwasher soap or with something else? If it is just automatic dishwashing soap then maybe run the cycle with no dishes in it on heavy wash. Now if he filled it with regular dishwashing soap clean out as much of it as you can then run the washer without dishes. If you leave regular soap in there your kitchen will be filled with bubbles.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

Whirlpool gold builtin dishwasher


Do not recommend premeasured tablets, usually too much soap. If pre-rinsing dishes use only 1 or two teaspoons of soap in the main wash cup..do not put soap in the prewash cup. Excess soap can cause oversudsing and make the soil sensor think the dishes are real dirty initiating additional wash cycles. Use rinse-aid for better drying performance

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes. Casade cleaner not disolved.???


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
