When our Neff dishwasher has completed a cycle most of the tablet is still in the open dispenser. Can you advise ?


Check and clean both spray arms.
make sure nothing is restricting the movements of the arms. Have you selected the correct programme? Quick wash may not always dissolve tablets, you may need to put the tablet straight into cutlery basket at start of quick wash programme

Detergent tablet not dissolving.


sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

Not coming out clean


I'm guessing from your post that your cutlery is the only thing in the dishwasher that is not getting clean, but rather with that nasty coating when you go to empty it. The reason for this phenomenon doesn't lie in a problem with the dishwasher, but rather a simple chemical and physical reaction between the dishwashing liquid (or powder or tablet), heat from the dishwasher's dryer, and the metal on that set of cutlery. The bleach from the dishwashing detergent will work very hard at getting your glasses, bowls, and everything glass and/or plastic clean and sparkling because it contains bleach in its ever-proprietary mixture of citrussy goodness. Unfortunately, metals and bleach, combined with heat are NOT a good combination! The best advice I can give you in this case (again, assuming that everything else in your dishwasher is looking fabulous and that your cutlery is the only thing that is not) is to wash your cutlery by hand with regular dish soap in the sink and do not put them in the dishwasher. Of course, it's easier to just stick all of that stuff in the dishwasher and not wash it by hand! It's why you bought a dishwasher in the first place, right? But if you want your cutlery (especially if it's GOOD cutlery) to look good and perform well, your best bet is to wash it the good ol' fashioned way...In the sink.

I hope this helps! :) Let me know if you need anything else that I can help with.

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!

TOP DRAWER WHEN LOADED, DOES NOT GET WASHED


top tray not washing properly and tablets not dissolving are linked. On my FDW60 same problem was down to the top tray not being pushed fully home (tendency to use closing the door to push top home). This meant the flap of the tablet 'hatch' was stopped from fully opening by the tray, also poor water pressure to drive the rotating sparge bar on the underside of the top tray.
Be sure to push the top tray all the way home BEFORE closing the door, aaannd SPENT!

Tablet falls out & doesn't dissolve especially on fast cycle


Hi and wlecome...
You should not use anything other than powered dishwasher detergent in these products. They are not designed for tablet-style detergents. The reason is because the dispenser does not "open" during the wash cycle like you would see on a conventional dishwaser. The incoming water pours over the detergent and releases the mixture out the bottom of the dispenser. If you need a user guide, you can get one here: http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?blockitemid=29

I have a Chef Classic dishwasher - not washing properly


The caddy for cutlery on this model is in front of the compartment where you put the tablets. What'll sometimes happen, is a spatula or wooden spoon or something in the caddy will hold the tablet compartment lid shut - it'll stop them coming out properly.
After a while the water movement will move the obstruction and the tablet will come out, but it'll only be dissolved for a bit of the wash and the dishes won't be cleaned properly.

Tablet door dosn't open during cycle


It sound like a detergent cup issue (the door doesn't open at time) A very simple test for it is to place a tablet on the bottom of the dishwasher for a full cycle and to see what happen to the tablet. In case the tablet will be dissolved : - The detergent cup can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening at time. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. - The detergent cup opened by a bi-metal switch or a wax motor located inside your dishwasher door(behind the detergent cup). If cup's cleaning will not solve the problem, you should replace the bi-metal switch or the wax motor (depend which of them is used in your machine). 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!
