Sand in washing machine

Is it possible for sand to somehow come through the washing machine's water source and then be deposited in the bottom of the machine after the clothes are washed. It happened once or twice with our machine and i have no clue as to where it came from

SOURCE: washing tablet not desolving, dishes still dirty, have opened machine when been on 5 ninutes and only cold water pouring in, what is the problem please?

test your hot water over your sink and see how long it takes to get hot. if it takes 30 to 40 seconds just run your hot water until it gets hot then run dishwasher. or if water not hot enough yo can turn up your water heater temp. also check your heat element

My dishes come out with a gritty sand all over them.


If you live in an area with hard water, the grit is probably hard water deposits. Dishwasher detergents no longer contain phosphate, so the detergents often leave behind hard water deposits on your dishes. There is a great solution at www.cloudydishes.com

How did I get the film off my glassware? My glassware has a thick film that is very unappealing. I have to hand wash them. I use cascade detergent.


If you are not using a water softener use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry. This will help to eliminate scum on glassware. Use the solid form of Jet Dry. If you use a water softener you need to decrease the amount of detergent.
You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is a hard water deposit and more detergent is likely needed. If the cloudiness is not removed it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. In actuality, dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.

Bad odors from dishwasher


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it may leave a bad odour from the residue food deposits.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

White film on glasses and plates; I have cleaned tubes and nothing is blocking. is it possible that it is too much calcium/deposits; or a ring/gasket in the bottom sprayer that pre vents the water form...


Hi
White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

Yes! you are already having the answer. check your water inlet flow. Clean the strainer at the machine water hose connecting end.

Check the drain filter also. Refer user guide for instructions on cleaning.

Top rack wont clean


Take the top rack out of the machine.The remove the wash arm they usually unscrew by turning a nut in the middle and wash under running water also check that the holes are free from any food deposits.Replace and give it a test this should work now.The other possibility is that the bottom arm is not fitted correctly,in wich case remove the bottom arm and fit properly.
Let me know how it went.

My 3-4 yrs old Neff washing machine is leaking from the bottom especially at the very right front corner,also it appears that the whole bottom sheet is logged with water & rusted! can you help please


One of 2 problems: either the water level sensor is burdened with deposits and not stopping the water fill in time (that is: it is allowing too much water in) and the extra water drips out the door bottom which is not a sealed opening, or the gasket around the door is distorted or brittle or encrusted with deposits that do not allow a sight seal along the sides of the door and the jets inside are forcing water past the gasket.
Your manual should show you the water level sensor and how to avoid deposits the will affect it. The manual may also direct you to the gasket poor seal problem, but this is pretty-much a visual thing. Good luck, Macgivor

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.
Regards

Food Deposits left on dishes


I had an old machine with a similiar problem & I found that food had somehow entered into the arm that spins & sprays out water. The food blocked somewhat the holes which of course means less cleaning.

Whirlpool built in dishwasher. not aware of model number


Putting vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher is not going to help because it has nothing to do with the FILL cycle. The bottom (or sump) actually is used during the WASH and DRAIN cycles. I would check the fill port where the water inlet hose goes into the side of the wash tub. You will need to pull the unit out and locate the inlet hose on the SIDE of the dishwasher. The hose should be a black rubber hose located on the left-hand side of the machine. I had a very similar problem that turned out to be calcium deposits clogging the fill port BEFORE it got to the fill valve. With the unit turned off, I removed the rubber hose and used a small screwdriver to poke straight down into the fill port and break up a bunch of calcium. The unit worked fine after that. It is normal for some dishwasher models to drain if they do not detect enough fill water, or if they detect a leak. Usually when the fill port becomes restricted or clogged you will find puddles of water forming under the dishwasher. You might want to remove the bottom panel and check for leaks as well (if you haven't done so already). If you check the fill port and it is clear, the fill valve could be a possibility as well. However, you mentioned you could hear water running which leads me to believe that you have a simple clog somewhere...but, the valve could have accumulated some deposits as well. Check the fill hose and let me know. Good luck and I hope this helps you. PS Another common mistake people make is to put drain cleaner in their dishwashers. This can damage the pump and chopper assembly. Not to mention, it could be harsh on the some of the rubber seals. Not a good idea.
