Washing powder does not dispense properly - Electrolux Dishwashers

Posted by on

  • flowerbabe Jul 02, 2008

    That was the most informative site I had seen, but didn't solve my problem. My dispenser does open, just doesn't seem to want to use the powder. It mostly stays in the dispenser and remains clogged and wet. Even when I have taken out the mess and dried it to start again, the problem remains the same. Any ideas?

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

    Thank you very much for your generous rating!



    Well, if you faithfully tried all that was offered, then based on what information was supplied, I would maybe trade it in on a Maytag Jetclean dishwasher. I sold and serviced them for over 25 years, and I own one, and feel that this is the best one on the market today. No need to buy top end either, the mid-class is great.



    Good luck!

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

there are little holes in the dispenser that are clogged pull the dispenser drawer out & the roof of dispenser is where the holes are blocked unblock the holes with a pin and you should be right. this only usually happens when you are using to much powder. you only need a quarter of a scoop these days the powder is so strong everyone is wrecking there machines because there using to much powder.

Washer doesn't dispense fabric softener


This can be either one of the solenoids in the dispenser has failed, the timer is not sending the signal to let the softener in, or the water is not circulating through the dispenser to flush it through. The water hose to the dispenser will occasionally plug up. Check the hose first, it's the cheapest to unplug it. ;-) Oh, I have seen the wires to the solenoids just simply come unplugged too.

The powder dispenser on my ls 610a dishwasher does not seem to work properly. There is always powder left in the dispenser and the dishes are not always washed properly.


Try to make sure that the path for water isn't blocked to the dispenser. Ours will do that too if we forget to leave some space for the streaming water to hit the little tray.

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?


According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

1.
Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
Tips.”
■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items. Items should move easily through the wash
water.
■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
through the wash water.
2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
the washer.
3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
liquid detergent.
4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
cycle.
■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
(250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
dispenser, if desired.
■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
capful of fabric softener.
■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
during the Extra Rinse.
■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
6. Close the washer lid.
7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
“Modifiers” section.
12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
Power, the washer automatically shuts off.


The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.

Dispensing tray is not opening at right time in cleaning cycle


unlikely to be dispensor opening at the wrong time. the powder is washed out by water squirting from angled jets at the end of the spray arm. check no blockage in spray arm - sometimes difficult to see. you may find also that the spray arms are not rotating for the same reason
