Hi there!

Some tablets seem to be compressed more than other makes.

Try putting one in the utensil basket instead of usual pocket.

Make sure salt level is adequate, as this affects how easily the tablets disolve / how effective they are.

If there is a flap or sprung drawer they sit in, Make sure it is clean and not restricted with goo. Listen to see if the solenoid is working to release it correctly.

Hope this helps you.
If not - contact me again and I will continue.
Thanks.

Tassimo instructions how to use limescale tablets?


If the limescale is in the pot, put tablet in pot & boil.
If in the maker, fill with water, 3/4, then add tablet. Let disolve, then run water through machine. Run clear water through at least 2 more times before using.

H owdo you clean the machine using the tablet ? Thanks


  1. Turn machine off.
  2. remove group head (portafilter)
  3. place single or dual cup filter in group head.
  4. place rubber bung in group head.
  5. place one tablet in space in bung.
  6. replace group head in machine.
  7. This is where the instructions lead you astray.
  8. DO NOT PRESS 1 & 2 CUP BUTTONS SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH POWER BUTTON.
  9. Press & hold 1 & 2 cup buttons simultaneously, on their own.
  10. Now press the power button while still holding the 1 & 2 cup buttons.
  11. Cleaning cycle will start, and will take around 5 mins to complete. Book says it will beep 3 times when finished haven't heard this yet. Just wait a couple of minutes extra and all should be well.
  12. Clean me light should be out and tablet disolved if not repeat steps again until tablet disolves.

Tablet falls to the bottom of tub but wont disolve


The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.

Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.

Hope this helps, Ken

I have had my dishwasher for 3 years. In the past few days the tablet that i put in hasnt been disolving and washing the dishes. The compartment where you put the tablet opens its just the tablet doesnt...


I would say you are not getting any water flow since the water dissolves the tablet.

When starting it listen for the water valve opening and open door and see if there is any water.

If not it is probably the solenoid or a defective or blocked water valve which is not opening.

Do the Solitab tablets have the small yellow sponge included with them


Hi
Yes the sponge is in the tablet and when the tablet disolves the sponge soaks up the oils, they say.
