It will not hurt the DW, just make ALOT of suds. Get some defoamer used for spa tubs. Use a little at a time, fill, let it wash for 10 seconds then drain. Repeat if necessary until sudsing is gone.

White Film On Dishes In Dishwasher


<b> <u><i>Phosphate-Free Dishwasher Detergents May Cause White Film</i></u><br /> <i></i> <br /> <p>Notice a white film or residue on your dishes, glassware, plastic items,<br /> <p>utensils and tub interior.<br /> <p>The problem is likely not the dishwasher's cleaning performance, but may be hard water<br /> <p>or phosphate-free detergents.<br /> <p>As of July 1, 2010 seventeen States* passed laws limiting the amount of phosphorous<br /> <p>(phosphates) in household dishwasher detergents to no more than 0.5 percent.<br /> <p>Previous detergents contained up to 8.7 percent. As a result, major manufacturers have<br /> <p>reformulated their dishwasher cleaning products.<br /> <p> Phosphates are mineral additives in detergents that act as the main cleaning agent helping<br /> <p>remove stains, break down grease and reduce spotting.<br /> <p>During washing, phosphates suspend food particles so they don't stick to dishes. Plus, they<br /> <p>soften water allowing suds to form for cleaning.<br /> <p>Phosphates have been limited in laundry detergents since 1994. The change in dishwasher<br /> <p>detergents is another step in the eco-conscious awareness found in today's products and<br /> <p>the eco-friendly choices consumers are making. Allowing the water in your sink to run untill its hot before starting your dishwasher helps. Also try switching to one of these brands of detergents <br /> <p>1.

Accidentally put in dawn dishwashing detergent intead of dishwasher rinse aid. How big a problem is this and what can I do?


I'm not sure how big of a problem this is, or even if it is one, I would suggest running your dishwasher with nothing in it for a full few cycles to get rid of any detergent left in it, then go back to using what you normally use.

Will not clear soap from machine, have to rinse multiple times


are you using regular dish-washing detergent....not liquid dish detergent like dawn....dawn and the like suds up tremendously....regular detergent is manufactured so it will not suds up.

does it drain completely? sometimes a blocked drain will keep enough soapy water in the basin that when the rinse cycle comes on it essentially throws soapy water back on the clean dishes.

hope this helps

I accidentally put liquid detergent into the rinse compartment.


Wipe down the rinse compartment, fill it with tap water and run as many empty cycles as it takes to flush out the improper additive.

If you put Dawn or Joy type detergent rather than machine detergent it may take awhile but it works once the unwanted chemical is flushed out completley.

Don't work to hard, let the machine do the work for you.

Hi I have a Whirlpool dishwasher Model #DU912PFG01 Or DU912PF001 or DU912PFGG1 cannot tell the last 3. Serial # FK194309. My son noticed the dishes didn't look clean, he added DISHSOAP which then produce a...


Slog builds up in the drain pipe right before the garbage disposer. I had to replace mine when I replaced my old dishwasher. If you put vinegar in the dishwasher to unplug the pipe, the vinegar could have loosen all the slog and clog the drain pipe just like a built up in the hurt artery.

Whirlpool gu2200 dishwasher, the detergent


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Dawn in the Jet Dry Dispenser


It may not hurt the machine, but it leaves soap on the clean dishes. You can't really remove the reservoir without dismantling the entire door. it's pretty straightforward, but takes a little time and effort. If you're not prepared to dismantle the door to get to the reservoir, you -could- try cleaning/rinsing it out with a turkey baster and a small diameter piece of plastic tubing. Just suck everything out, then fill it with rinse water and suck that out as well. But you'd have to fill it with rinse water over a dozen times to really get it clean. Hope that helps. ;)
