RESIDUE ON DISHES-NOT CLEANING WELL-DETERGENT NOT DISSOLVING-LONG CYCLES

I have had this dishwasher for about a year now--it seems to be getting worse and worse upon use--I have removed it from under the cabinet several times and ran it thru the cycles and all of the water seems to be flowing through the system fine. It seems the more we were using it the longer the cycles were taking. Now we have all of the issues listed--bearely cleaning the dishes, not rinsing well and leaving residue all over dishes and especially silverware and the detergent(no matter which brand I have used-several different kinds--tabs,liquid, powder)doesnt seem to dissolve. I have tried running it through the cycles with a degreaser solution and it seemed to do better for about  or five times after that. I have not been happy with this dishwasher from the beginning and should have returned it. It has never done an excellent job on the dishes but I considered it well enough considering I paid only $198.00 for it on clearance brand new. Guess it wasnt such a good bargain after all. If I had the money I would just ditch this one and get a new one. Any suggestions on what could be going on with this machine?? should I just get used to dishpan hands???



I have a LG dishwasher brought brand new, only 5 mnths old, detergent does not dissolve, i have tried powder and tablet, also not cleaning dishes well.

Sounds like you have motor pump problem and may need to be replaced.  The parts are covered for 2 years but you'll have to pay for the labor.  Call a qualified LG technician for service on your dishwasher.  You can find them on the LG website.

The problem is not the dishwasher but the water that actually is going into it. the white, powder substance is because of hard water. there is a affordable product out there called the dishwasher filtration system. it will filter the water going into your dishwasher and solve the problem once and for all!!! it is affordable and easy to install. www.dishwasherfilter.com

What brand of detergent should i use


I have had good luck with the powdered dishwasher detergent from Wall Mart's brand Great Value.

Before I switched to this brand I had to clean the washer drawer several times because the detergent I was using was not dissolving properly and would leave a residue in the bottom of the drawer and on the dishes.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. ...


First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening.

Poor Cleaning and getting worse


A common cause of poor washing is improper loading—dishes block or impede the spray arms or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. Your home's water pressure may be too low, the water may be too hard, you may not be using the right amount of detergent, or the water temperature may not be hot enough

Try a different detergent such as the electrosol tablets. Also might add vinegar to an empty cycle to clean dishwasher, or with dishes.

KitchenAid Superba KUDSO1FLSS3 Not Rinsing? No Cleaning at all!


Hi there,

Here are a couple of things that you can try:

If there is hard water residue or film left on the dishes:
Check water hardness.
If the water is hard, use maximum detergent or try pouring 1/4 cup of Dishwasher Magic into the bottom of the dishwasher. I would also recommend using the High Heat option to ensure proper cleaning. To clean the dishwasher, use a cup of vinegar and place it in the upper rack.

Detergent carryover:
Check water hardness.
If it's below 10 grains, use less detergent and the High Heat option.

It is also possible that you may have a problem with the drain loop check valve as it's not sealing. This may cause residue or food to be left on the dishes. For this, I would recommend you have a technician do it, as it requires replacing the entire drain loop.

Let me know if any of this solves the problem.

RESIDUE ON DISHES-NOT CLEANING WELL-DETERGENT NOT DISSOLVING-LONG CYCLES


The first thing to check with any of the newer dishwashers is the water temprature coming into the machine and the amount of water coming in. Since you are having trouble with the detergent dissolving, I expect the water is not hot enough. Many of the detergents require 140 degrees f to dissolve properly.

The incoming water should be 120 degrees minimum, then the dishwasher will heat it up some more. The cooler the water, the longer the cycle will take. It won't advance to the next step until the water reaches a certain temp, depending on the cycle selected and the model of dishwasher.

If the dishwasher has to heat the water too much, it will cause the heat element to fail prematurely.

If your water heater is set to the average 130-135 setting, then you may be able to solve your problem by running the hot water at the sink before turning the dishwasher on. This will get the cold water flushed from the pipes so the washer fills with hot water on the first fill.

Also. start the washer in a cycle, let it fill and start washing. Open the door and see how much water is in the tub. It should come up to the bottom of the heating element.

Post back and let me know what you find out.
