Food particles remain in the dishwasher and on dishes


Hello, if someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.
If you recently installed a garbage disposal there is a knock out that many people forget to do on the disposal that, if you don't knock out will cause some of the risidual food from the disposal to seep back into the dishwasher...thereby causing particals of food to remain on dishes.
Thanks

My dishwasher has water on the bottom that wont drain. I poured some Draino on the bottom but it didn't work. So I tried to run it (without dishes in it) and bubbles and water came out onto my kitchen...


**** out the water with a wet vacuum machine. Remove the sump guard and check with you fingers for any obstacles that prevent the draining. **** out the water and anything else from there. Put the guards back.

Try draino first then take it apart on the inside bottom to see what might be clogging it.

Dishes do not clean same detergent and rinse no change to amount


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishwasher will not drain already checked screen and hoses

Draino in dishwasher?


Absolutely not! There are a couple of products that you can use that will clean your filters efficiently. The first is GLISTEN... The second is DISHWASHER MAGIC. Follow the application directions, This should clear your filters. In some extreme cases you may need to follow up with a second application.

Water left in bottom of Bosch dishwasher


One possible solution to your problem could be as follows... Could have been little regular soap or something put in that made it suds up causing it not to drain. Pouring vegetable oil into the dish washer tub will remove the suds. After running vegetable oil for about 5 minutes, pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel and No tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem.

Whirpool dishwasher


Ours does the same thing. I have been suspicious that it is the melting plastic stuff used in the dishwasher tabs that the wife uses.

Let me know if you use that same tab to wash you dishes.

We dont have any problem with the stuff getting on dishes (and we use all white diner type dishes.).
