Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2275XTVQ1 cleans poorly on top only


Check your hose, pump and all water lines for lime scale build up. Sometimes if you dont use some kind of lime away product every few months your machine will/can get lime scale build up from hard water causing it to not properly dispense the water through out your machine. You can also try to run a load with no dishes and no soap but put just lime away in your machine. It might just clear any clogs you might have or starting to get.

Hoshizaki km-900mah not going into harvest when float switch opens. New circuit board installed still no harvest. I can set an egg timer and manually operate machine but I can't leave it unattended...


Hoshizaki machines must have a very clean evaporater other wise the ice will bind causing a slow harvest. This may be from lime scale build up. "Lime A Way" is recommended for this proper cleaning. After that is done check to see that the water inlet valve screen is clean and that you have a filter installed.
Last check the thermister attached to the suction line.

you can use any kind of calicium lime and scale remover to help clean the dishwasher,there are also several kinds of dishwasher cleaner that can be bought from most any store around. it may take a couple of times for this to work and clean the dishwasher.

Make sure to run it on a empty cycle it run for a few minutes the stop the machine and let it sit and then restart the machine.

I have to flush three time just to get one piece of toilet paper down


the first thing to look at is to see how much water is in the system if its very low it will only give you a short flush take off the top and see how much water it is holding when full up, if its lower that the over flow pipe you could rase it a little by lifting the ball to let more water in, then have a look at the bole itself were the water comes out there are a row of holes if there blocked with lime scale you will need to clean them all out its a messy job i know but this scale will slow down the flow of water and there wont be the forse to clear the bole out, an old drill bit of the right size will easly clean the holes out, dont just try useing lime scale remover and a stiff brush as it wont get right into the holes they need to be clear right through to the water pipe from the header tank ie: about 1.5 inches so only doing the job by hand will do this
it should work ok after that
best of luck,,,with a nasty job

Clogged water dispenser in Bosch dishwasher


Hi, Logmanup (slight bouts with dyslexia, sorry)

By "spinning water dispensers", I assume you mean the spray arms, right? OK... if they are getting clogged with debris it would be nice to know what kind of debris. Pieces of broken glass? Plastic? Lime scale? Iron? And yes, when they get clogged they won't rotate, won't allow pressurized water through and therefore won't clean the dishes.

For the purpose of this solution, I'll assume that there are little white particles clogging up the jets on the spray arms. This indicates hard water and lime scale build up.

Other than completely disassembling the entire motor/pump assy. (you really don't want to go there), the best way to clear this out of the system is to use an over the counter chemical called Dishwasher Magic or something similar. If the lime scale build up is really bad (and it sounds like it is), use a couple of bottles to start with and follow up with a bottle per month thereafter.

As an aside... If I assumed correctly about the lime scale build up, that means that it's also affecting other appliances as well. Mainly, your hot water heater. If you haven't done it before, please read this to perform maintenance on it. And a product something like this for your washing machine.

I hope this was helpful. Let us know if this works or not. If not, please write back and we'll go a little deeper.
