Question about Hotpoint HDA2000G Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My granddaughter has recently rented an apartment and the dishwasher leaves undissolved clumps & loose bits of dishwasher detergent powder once the cycle is complete. Neither of us has ever used a dishwasher before and have no idea how to solve it. There, of course, is no manual at the apartment to check for troubleshooting. She uses the Cascade "pillows" detergent.

Build up of dirt in tub making clothes dirty... How do I clean inside of machine?


If you use powder detergent ( clay carrier) the build up is from undissolved powder ( clay)
It forms cakes between the spin tub and the outer bowl
The fix is to pull the washer apart and physically remove the caked up mud from all parts of the machine
The prevention of future mud is to use liquid detergents rather than powders
It works like this powder detergents have a small percentage of actual detergent in use and that is dried onto a clay base as a transporter agent
In the wash , the detergent is released but the clay will not dissolve
Most is pumped out with each spin but a certain amount remains , dries and starts the dirt process through the clothes
With liquid detergents there is the same amount of actual detergent but the carrier is water and that is diluted in the spin and completely flushed away

Tablet does not dispence


this is electrically activated and spring controlled and almost always the mechanism just needs cleaning particularly if you use a powder or tablet type detergent. you can try leaving the compartment open and running a few cycles without any detergent to help clean it up,otherwise you will have to take that piece apart and clean it up by hand. also check the electrical connection to this part. A bit of moisture to it will cause corrosion also causing it not to work.

My amana softsound III Model DWA63AL doesn't seem to get dishes clean. I have cleaned filters and everthing seems to operate ok. Water temp good. any advice?


Many people are having trouble with poor performance due to recent EPA changes required in dish washing detergent.
If it makes as much water splashing noise as it used to but it still leaves residue and undissolved food behind...then it's probably the detergent. That's what does the work.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

Dishwasher soap lid is not latching. It's free of detergent.


We have the same problem, so I took the door of the dishwasher apart and cleaned it up, reassembled it, and it latched for about a week. Something is worn somewhere, and it's going to be a pain to figure out and replace, so we just bought some powdered dishwasher detergent, and fill the cup and close the door. The water spray will dissolve any that falls out when you close the door, and it does just fine, doesn't leave any residue or undissolved detergent on the dishes, at least with our dishwasher, hope you have the same luck.. If you choose to get it fixed, get an estimate first. Sometimes it's better to just replace, depending on the cost of repair. Hope this helps, good luck.

Dishwasher detergent clumps in pre-wash and main wash compartments


Make certain that there are no apparent obstructions between water and detergent. If no obstructions and the detergent dispenser and spray arms are operable, then the detergent should dissolve during wash. Otherwise, try using a different kind and amount of detergent (e.g.: powder vs. gel or gel vs. powder, and less detergent). If still clumping, contact an appliance service company.

Powder detergent not distributing in ge quiet power 3 dishwasher


Try storing your powder in the dryer cupboard or in a warm area

It is more than likely that it is damp when it is going into the machine which means it clumps up instead of mixing with the inflow of water

Other thing to check is is there is a restriction at the back of the dispenser drawer which is not allowing the powder to flush down into the machine.

Finally , dry the dispenser slots with kitchen roll and give them a spray with a good quality furniture polish, allow it to dry for a few minutes and then buff it with a cloth, the silicone or wax in the polish should help the powder to slide
