    Hi,



    In response to my question why does my tablet fall out mid wash. I should have added that:-



    The tablet is dropping out and when the cycle is finished it is still a whole tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher, and the plates are not clean.

This is normal how else is the dtergent going to be applied to wash
when the machine starts the fist cycle is generally a rinse cycle then next cycle is wash and this is when the dispenser opens and stays open for rest of cycle

I own a Bosch home Dishwasher - Model SGV53E03GB-74 - where the wash tablet discharge cavity opens in the wash cycle but doesn't allow the tablet to drop, so the wash is ineffective and needs


Sounds like the dispenser door isn't opening. If it isn't being blocked by dishes, the dispenser door spring might be broken, the dispenser release solenoid could be faulty, or not getting power from the control panel. While you're waiting for it to get fixed, you can just put the detergent in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it on normal cycle. It also possible the dispenser door isn't opening wide enough for the puck to fall out. Make sure the door opens freely under it's own spring assist.

What can I do to make it work?


I would have advised you before placing the tablet dry compartment with a dry cloths otherwise tablet would be stuck together. If does't help then put the tablet directly into the sink and never choose a quick program if you do not have functions (like 3 in 1, multi tab and so on....) that extend the time of duration of washing phase and give enough time for dissolve tab. Sometimes people on the upper basket hang up various odors or put dishes that may prevent to open small door to the end and dropping tablet.
The tablet most likely will drop during the washing cycle but the remaining time is not enough to dissolve the tablet and wash result will be bad.

Hi there, I have an ESL424 Electrolux dishwasher and I'm having some problems with it not washing dishes properly. Is there any common reason for this? The problem seems to be more apparent in the top...


first thing is to ensure the top spray arm is turning freely. make sure nothing is blocking it, for example one of them dishwasher fresheners.

also check the holes on both spray arms to ensure they not blocked up, also if you can remove the spray arms and clean them out, also clean out the filter.

i also always susjest putting the upper basket on the highest setting as high plates etc. in the bottom basket can stop spray arm turning

after checking all of the above, put the spray arms in the 12 o clock posistion and turn the dishwasher on, when it starts washing open the door to see if they have moved.

also always use a good quality diswasher tablet, cheaper ones dont always give good wash results.

The main wash door doesnt open


switch to pre-measured tablets,and throw the tablet directly into the tank(d/w..)it works better that way anyways...most dispensers are very expensive also

Isn't cleaning dishes


Ensure that the arms below the baskets can move freely, dont overload the machine,
1 Have you put tablets into the door!
2 Rinse Aid in door!
3 Salt in bottom of machine if you live in a hard water area!
4 Do you know which cycle is which on the control panel you could just be rinseing everything instead of washing it!

Dishwasher 3 in 1 detergent tablet not dissolving.


I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.

Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.

The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.

Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.

Hope that helps and best regards!

I have had my dishwasher for 3 years. In the past few days the tablet that i put in hasnt been disolving and washing the dishes. The compartment where you put the tablet opens its just the tablet doesnt...


I would say you are not getting any water flow since the water dissolves the tablet.

When starting it listen for the water valve opening and open door and see if there is any water.

If not it is probably the solenoid or a defective or blocked water valve which is not opening.

The detergent dispenser sliding door will not stay closed


it is a very tiny plastic "tooth" that let open automatically the door when the washing program selected reach the opening point, the only good solution I suggest is to add the detergent after the first hot wash (just open the main door and drop it in!)...of course the best is to change this door locker with a new one...good luck!

Dishwasher tablets not dissolving


It may just be the way you are loading the machine.  If the dishes are not allowing the the detergent door to open fully, the tablet sits in the dispenser until you open the dishwasher, letting the dispenser door open and the half dissolved tablet falls out!     Try being more careful how you load the machine or just chuck the tablet in the bottom of the machine instead of the dispenser!
