Question about Westinghouse Dishwashers
I have a Westinghouse 921 freestyle dishwasher which was in the house when I moved in (so no manual)
I run the cycle through and it seems to work but the detergent door does not open during the cycle so the tablet is still in there at the end (and the dishes dirty)
What opens the door? Is there something that I can adjust to get the detergent despensing door to open?
Thanks veyr much for any help

The problem is not enough water presure is hitting the soap dispenser. Probably the top rack of dishes is not getting clean either! look for my post about fixing with CLR and use that see what happens then

Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

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 don't have a solution, but the exact same problem is happening with my dishwasher. Nothing is getting cleaned properly.
Did you manage to get the problem fixed?
