Dishwasher not washing very well

The dishwasher is not cleaning consistently. When I open the door mid cycle the water is hot and coming out of the arms but the arms are not spinning (not sure if they should be or not). The arms do move at some point as they are not in same position as they were at the start. The water is pumped away at the end and the remaining (very little bit) is clean. I've checked for bits in the arms and they are clean and have run 'dishwasher cleaner' products through the machine. Any ideas - does this sound expensive to fix? The machine is a integral Neff 4.5 years old.

    Yes I have the same sort of problem. The top shelf crockery seems clean but the dirtier things on the bottom- pans, cutlery and roasting dishes etc., that used to be cleaned perfectly, are now coming out almost as soiled as they went in. I also have cleaned all the filters and the spray arms and have run two dishwasher cleaning products through on the hottest, longest setting with no improvement. The spray arms are working well and the water heats appropriately, as I also checked mid-cycle.A plumber friend also cleaned out the inlet hose for me last week as no water was coming in then either.He solved that problem but I am still left with bad cleaning.

    I have a similar problem. All feeds to the arms are clear and both arms spin freely. The upper arm is intermittently fed with water pressure, whilst the lower one is fed all the time. I'm wondering if there are seperate pumps for the upper & lower arms. Any ideas? .

  • CPAJP Sep 05, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem. I have changed the upper and lower spray arms so there are definitely no blockages there. The problem remains. The unusual thing is that it is inconsistent as occassionally everything washes well.

Usual reason is that the arms are not rotating freely - they only turn by water jetting out of angled jets. blockages are not always obvious as blockage material tends to go out of sight when water pressure off. favourite culprits are rice and sweet corn

Why is it not cleaning dishes?


Contact one of the Asko authorised repairers in your area and they will be able to tell you the likely cause provided the water in your machine is heating up to the correct temperature and not trying to wash luke warm and without the powder dissolving properly.

Set the machine for a hot wash and stop it and open the door mid wash cycle and check how hot the water is. It should be extremely hot and you should get a mass of steam rushing out when you open the door.

Dishes not cleaning after full cycle running


Your screens are plugged with food residue in the bottom of the unit. clean it out. You can use 1 gallon of white vinegar for your wash after you clean the screens. Start your washer to fill with water but after the water starts, open your door and pore all of the gallon in the unit. Let it now run for 4 minutes and stop it by opening the door. Leave the door slightly open for 1 hour. close the door and let the cycle continue for 4 more minutes. open the door and repeat it a couple of more times. Let it sit all night with the vinegar in it and in the morning - close the door and let the cycle continue to the end. This should help soften and clean out the food particles in the unit. You can repeat the process and get a better cleaning then too. All the scale should be off your dishes now.

Kitchenaid KUDS02FRSS0 dishwasher. Stops mid-cycle, sometimes wash, sometimes rinse, sometimes dry. Must restart 4-5-6 times to get it to finish. When finally done dishes are clean, hot & dry....


Hi Dennis.

If the dishwasher is hanging on in the middle of the cycle it is usually the heating system. If the temperature of the water is going up after filling, then the element may be working. The element is tested using a multi meter set on Ohms to read impedance across the heater element contacts. If impedance is infinity (open-off limit), then the element is gone. If the element is OK, then the bi-metal thermostat or the fuse must be replaced. The heating assembly is located at the base of the appliance, behind the kick panel.

Behind the kick panel you should also find the tech sheet illustrating how to run the diagnostic cycle for this model. Run a diagnostic cycle to confirm that the problem is with the heating system. Drain, water sensor and inlet problems sometimes may also result in cycle not finishing.

You can find parts and diagrams for your dishwasher in this page.

Regards.

Smeg integrated dishwasher continually washing - won't move to drying cycle.


you should check the heating element. if the water is not hot enough, the timer will not advance. crack open the door mid-cycle. let the water stop flying around. then open it all the way up. if you don't get a big ball of steam, you have an indication that your heating element may not be working properly. this is not too hard to check the resistance with a multimeter and then replace, if necessary. good luck

Suds coming out of the front


When you have suds rolling out of a dishwasher, you can assume that either that one of the dishes was loaded with liquid soap or that the dishwasher soap dispenser was filled with liquid, manual wash soap or laundry detergent.
After the mess is cleaned up, the quickest way to clean the dishwasher is to start up a new cycle, wait for the hot water to fill the dishwasher and just as the DW starts to pump the water through the spray arms (wash cycle) open the door and poor in two cups of white vinegar.
Hope this helps!
