Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

How to change filters on lg dishwasher


Your dishwasher may have a filter located near the bottom or under the lower spray arm. This filter should be inspected and cleaned regularly. Follow your dishwasher owner's manual for specific instructions about how to properly remove and clean this filter, if equipped. If there are any holes or other damage to the filter, you'll need to replace it immediately to protect the dishwasher's pump and motor seals from damage.

How do I change or clean the filter on my Lamona 8362 dishwasher ? I do not appear to have been given a user manual Thanks


  • 1 Wait until the dishwasher has completely cooled after use before attempting to clean the filter. Turn the dishwasher off and unplug it from the power supply.

  • 2 Remove the lower dish racks and locate the filter compartment on the bottom of the dishwasher.
  • 3 Unscrew the filter housing and gently pull to lift out the filter.
  • 4 Use a few drops of dishwashing liquid, warm water and a soft-bristled brush to clean the filter and the filter housing.
  • 5 Dry the filter and the housing and reassemble them. Reposition them in the bottom of the dishwasher and turn until locked into place. Replace the racks and close the dishwasher door. Plug back in to the local power supply.

    Our ten year old kitchenaid dishwasher doesn't get the dishes clean. there is food particles left on dishes if we don't completely rinse our dishes. is there a cleanout filter that needs to be emptied?


    Locate your dishwasher's filter. It is typically on the floor of the dishwasher. Pull out the bottom rack and look along the bottom of the dishwasher until you find it.

    Use a paper towel or sponge to remove any residue or debris that has accumulated on the outside of the filter once you locate it. On some dishwashers, the filter area does not detach or open, so your hand cleaning will stop here. On other models, you can unscrew the filter housing to access the inside and clean any debris from the filter area. Simply wash out the filter using soap and water, then reassemble once cleaning is complete.

    Further clean the filter area by pouring a quart of white vinegar into the bottom of the empty dishwasher. Turn to a wash cycle and allow the dishwasher to run with the vinegar cleaning the mechanisms, including the filter.

    To deep-clean your dishwasher and the filter periodically, mix the following ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into the bottom of the dishwasher: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup bleach. Let the mixture sit in the bottom of the empty dishwasher overnight. The next morning run a wash cycle, letting the bleach mixture clean and disinfect the dishwasher thoroughly.

    I have an Electrolux Dishlex DX303 Dishwasher. Recently it has been stopping early in the cycle and the display shows -10. The selected program is flashing. The cycle will restart by pressing the program...


    hi peter, according to manual book -10 is not filling water fast enough. check inlet hose and valve, check pressure switch and pressure SW hose and clean sump filter which located bottom of tub that plastic strainer and stainless mesh clean them spotless. sometimes caused by this filter block the water passage and change pressure sw's leadings. and clean sump as well. b4 suspect PCB this filter cause many problem like not heating water, doesn't keep water. if dirty filter is the one you will save at least $300- for service man to come out and change the PCB for nothing. I think clean the filter doesn't hurt anyone.

    My dishwasher not cleaning properly


    If your filter is dirty or "damaged beyond repair", dirt can be sent back to the dishes, glasses, flatware, etc.

    Also, the water paths may have scale lining or blocking the pathways, which would reduce water pressure, prevent proper pressure, and / or block water spray.

    The following link might give you some ideas... as for the filter, if you have the user's manual, the list of parts may be in the back with the index.

    Another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!


    When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.
