Tablet not melting in the dishwasher and the dishes are coming out dirty


I much prefer liquid dishwasher detergent for this reason. Have you tried this? Also, I find I have the best luck when I start with hot water rather than waiting for the machine to heat the water. I do this by getting hot water to the sink (while rinsing the dishes before putting them inside) and then starting the dishwasher.

Liquid is also easier to distribute when considering the pre wash vs the main wash cycle.

Another thing you might try is breaking the tablet up before putting it in the machine.

The third thing I might suggest is you try powedered detergent for dish washers.

I hope this helps you ... thanks for visiting today.

DA6141....DOES IT HEAT THE WATER? CAN ONLY SEE A HOT WATER INLET PIPE TO THE REAR....


Your dishwasher uses your hot water to wash the dishes.
Attach your hot water to both the sink and dishwasher at that (hot water) inlet.
Run the hot water in your sink until it is very hot, then turn on your dishwasher.

Dishwasher leaves baked on soap scum on al dishes and everything ....even on the dishwasher ...tried all kinds of soap and rinse aid...nothing works...cleaned entire washer out cleaned all filters...


I imagine you've already checked that you're using the correct amount of detergent for the wash programme, and that you're washing the correct quantity of dishes for the wash programme, though if not, try that first!

Is the dishwasher heating the water to the correct temperature? If it's not rinsing at a hot enough temperature, the detergent may leave a residue. In that case, your dishes would probably also be less than entirely clean; they could be slightly greasy when removed from the machine.

Another possibility is that insufficient water is supplied to the dishwasher, so it might be worth checking the tap that lets water through the hose and into the machine. Does the tap turn on fully? Does it turn off properly?

The other thing that might be worth trying is an empty wash: put the machine through a wash programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes, at the programme with the highest temperature. Is all the soap scum washed away? Or is there still a residue inside the machine? If the empty wash works, you probably need to give your machine a maintenance wash once a month or so. This is often the case if you usually wash your dishes a few at a time on a short programme.

I hope some of that helps. Good luck!

Dishes are coming out dirty, is there a filter?


No filter. Toss two cups of vinegar into the empty dishwasher and run your tap water til it is as hot as it gets. Then run your longest cycle. This will clean the machine. After that always rinse the dishes and always run the hot tap water into the sink until it is hot before you run the dishwasher. Problem solved. J.

I had the same issue and you will never beleive the solution.
Steps to follow:
1) run one full cycle with no dishes or soap
2) run one full cycle with a dishwasher cleaner like Jetdry
3) run one full cycle with a gallon of white vinager
4) never put soap in the extra in and only fill the main soap bin half way.

should work fine from here on out, but never fill main bin more then half way when you do dishes. also run the hot water in the sink until the water is very hot before starting the dish washer.

Does Not Drain ... We Don't even Use it


I know you're probably not needing this anymore, but for anyone else who has a similar problem...

Your dishwasher is installed wrong. You should never get water back into it from washing dishes in the sink. (of course - unless it is installed wrong) The "drain air gap" that you should see on top of your sink is to prevent water from back-flowing into your dishwasher. Sometimes plumbers put in a "stand pipe" (a pipe that goes way up in your sink cabinet underneath, but just is actually the pipe from the dishwasher and they loop it up higher than the bottom of the sink level in the cabinet. That way if you see water in your sink, most likely you can figure out why it is backed up before it gets higher than the stand pipe and goes into your dishwasher. Since you don't see the air gap device on top of the sink then I'm guessing whoever installed your dishwasher either put in a stand pipe and didn't put it up high enough, or more likely didn't put one in at all and therefore you are getting back-flow into the dishwasher.

Hello,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, you have a whirlpool quiet partner dishwasher that is not getting even light food residue off the dishes. Cycles seem to be running and progressing normally, tho you do not think the water is spraying from the arms with adequate force.


I have the same machine.
And I notice if I leave the dishes in the sink rather than rinsing them off and putting them directly into the dishwasher, (Like My Wife says to do). That sometimes I have the same problem.
So I bought Jet Dry, and filled the holder. It's a small sometimes clear plastic knob that unscrews out above the soap dish.Fill it once a month!
Do you put the detergent in both cups or only the closed one?
1. If the load is not real dirty you should only have to fill the one with the door that closes.
If it is real dirty then both. To always use both is a waste of money!
2. If your hot water heater is far from your dishwasher, let the hot water tap run a minute till it comes out hot, before starting the dishwasher.
3.If the dishes or pans are very dirty and or baked on use hi temp scower and heavy or potscruber for those loads.

I use heavy wash and hot temp scower if the stuff is relly messy or dryed on.
And for baked on HI- temp scower and pot scruber which sprays harder.

You will have to experiment a little to see what works for you.
You will find it washeing good after you find what works for your families dish habits!

If you have any more questions let me know!!!

Please remember to leave me a solved before you leave the site.

Wash water isn't hot even after we run hot water in sink before turning on dish water. However rinse water is hot. It appears the heating element is not working on wash but is on rinse?
