You can try one of the cleaners sold for this purpose like glisten, dishwasher magic or jetdry dishwasher cleaner. It may not be getting enough water due to the fill valve clogging up. You can check this by small amounts of water slowly with a cup in the wash cycle and quickly opening the door to see if the upper sprayarm is turning. If more water helps you need to replace the valve.

Code f7 appearing on whirlpool dishwasher adp 6940/5


f7 means a water flow meter problem. Either your dishwasher is not getting proper water pressure, or the flow meter is bad. Check to make sure you have good water pressure to the dishwasher, and then check that your water is coming in at a good flow rate. If both of these are ok, then replace the flow meter. If your house water pressure to the dishwasher is good, but your water flow coming into the dishwasher is slow, then your dishwasher water valve is probably plugged. Some valves you can take apart and clean out, and some you will need to replace. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Asko 1996 appears "dead".....no lights flashing, won't respond to repeatedly pushing on/off button. Some water left in the bottom...siphoned it out, cleaned filters, no blockage there. Almost like it's...


Don't know if this will help, but my dishwasher has a "propeller" device above the top and bottom racks that spins while dispensing the water. If the dishes on either rack are stacked too high (i.e. if even one plate comes in contact with that propeller, keeping it from spinning properly) the dishwasher will go through its full cycle but will not use the soap (soap door will still be closed and soap packet still intact) and will not get the dishes clean.
However, it sounds like you either have a bit of a drain issue as well--or perhaps your dishwasher acts the same way as mine (if that's the case) but ceases to drain as well if blocked.

Dishes in top rack don't clean



Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Most dishwashers have a little filter basket in the bottom. Depending on the brand, you can slide out the bottom rack, and in the bottom underneath the sprayer (the propeller thing) there should be some sort of basket that can be removed and cleaned. You also may have some water quality issues, or some detergents will leave residue. Also, make sure most of the large food is removed before loading.
