    I wonder if it isn't just your dish soap. Earlier this year, the government mandated that they cannot add phosphates to washing products now. I found that mine wasn't washing very well anymore and I found out that the soap wasn't made with phosphates anymore. If your dish washing soap doesn't have phosphates in it, it will leave your dishes with left over food and white cloudiness on the glass and other pieces. Hopefully it helps. Good luck!

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...


I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?

I went to take out my dishes out of the dishwasher this morning and the tablet was sitting at the bottom of the machine half disolved and most of my dishes weren't washed properly. What is the problem?


1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

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

My Hotpoint Aquarius diswasher won't dissolve the washing tablets


I don't have a solution, but the exact same problem is happening with my dishwasher. Nothing is getting cleaned properly.

Did you manage to get the problem fixed?

The door for the soap has a small crack/hole


you can patch the crack/hole with a one minute marine epoxy. It works great. Regarding the fact that the tablet won't dissolve, you may wish to try a different dishwasher tablet or powder. You may also have another problem with your machine. Are your dishes coming out clean?

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.

Dishes not being cleaned properly - large portion of tablet still remaining in the bottom


I have a 4114 and the problem was not enough water entering the washer. You can check by adding extra water (kettle full) to the washer just after start. ( opening the door just suspends the cycle) If your dishes clean well then you will need to adjust the pressure level switch to allow more water in. There is an adjustment screw on the switch which needs to be turned 1/4- 1/2 a turn. This puts more tension on the spring so more water needs to enter before the switch is activated. On the 4114 the switch has 2 adjusters. It is the taller of the 2 that require adjusting. Do little turns until the water level just covers the filters.
