Dishwasher tablet does not dissolve so crockery not clean


Are you using a rapid wash program, ie 30 minutes total?
if you are, put the tablet in the cutlery basket, not the soap dispenser. The wash time is very short on the 30 min program, so putting it in the cutlery basket gives it more time to dissolve.
Other problems might be problem with water level, (should be just above the filter but below the lip of the wash tank), pump not working or the spray arms not turning - (check the angled jet at the very end of the spray arm for blockage by food particles).

Dishwasher does not dissolve soap


If you have hard water, use only a little bit of soap. And you will probably need to add a rinse agent too. The government recently outlawed phosphate in detergent - now most detergents don't clean very well and don't dissolve either. This map shows the hard water regions in USA:

Laundry detergent not dissolving


If you can let hot water to mix more with the cold when the washer fills, that will help the detergent to dissolve. If that's not an option, you can heat up about two quarts of water on the stove and when very hot, turn down the heat and add your detergent, then stir it till dissolved, and then add it to the washwater and clothes.

Finish dishwashing product does not dissolve


Many dishwashing detergents need a water temperature of 140 degrees to dissolve. If your water is at the correct temperature, the only other suggestion I have is to make sure the detergent dispense is not blocked by large objects such as baking sheets, frying pans etc. If the dispenser cannot open fully, the detergent won't dissolve.
I hope one of these suggestions helps you. If it does, please rate my effectiveness. Thanks.

Soap not dissolving in dishwasher. stays in compartment


Hi, dishwasher detergent stays in the compartment because Bosch has designed a gap at the top of the compartment that feeds water onto the detergent before the cover opens. This has possibly been done to soften up deteregent tablets and help them dissolve.

The result is a solidified mass of wet detergent that doesn't come out of the compartment when it opens, and slowly dissolves onto the dishes leaving them coated with alkaline detergent at the end of the cycle. The residual lump of detergent is in the compartment or on the bottom of the dishwasher (refer photo).

The solution is to remove the compartment cover and look for the small gap at the top of the compartment as in the photos. Clean the surface and fill the gap with epoxy glue. This will keep the detergent dry until the cover opens, allowing the detergent to fall freely out of the compartment._1583.jpg

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!
