Hi,
I am guessing that you have a regular dishwasher with 2 pull-out drawers and two rotating spray bars.

These are really simple machines, most having just a water pump as moving parts.

If you can answer these questions for me I might be able to help:

Does the water pump work - can you hear splashing from inside when it is turned on?
If No - the pump may be blocked or broken. Check the filter basket or any other filter mentioned in the instruction book to make sure they are clear.
If Yes - do the spray bars both rotate during the washing? You can check by setting them both so they are pointing at you, then swirch on the machine for a second or two then switch it off again. Open the door and look to see if the bars are in the same position as you left them.
If No - check the holes in the spray bars for blockage by food and crockery particles, jar labels, etc. If they are blocked unscrew the knurled nuts thst retain them and carefully remove them from the machine, noting the order of any washers, spacers, etc. One of the nuts - I think the one on the bar that turns anticlockwise as you look at the nut - is likely to be a left hand thread so you will need to turn that the opposite way to usual to remove it.

When you have got the bars off run them under a tap and get all the debris out. If the little jet holes are blocked the bar won't turn and your dishes won't get splashed.

If you can check those few things and let me know what you found I'll might be able to help you further.

If this "fixes ya" I'd be grateful for a suitable rating for my answer.
If you still have a problem please instead use the "add a comment" box to tell me what you found and I will try again!
Thanks, D.

How many pounds of soil for 50 gallon container


That's a loaded question,lol. It depends on the type of soil and moisture content. Also, if you are trying to figure out how much soil you need, soil is sold in square yds which would need to be converted to square feet with such a small amount needed in a barrel. Here's one conversion site:

Hidden Gunk in Your Dishwasher


<span><span>You may be surprised to know you probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door of your dishwasher. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some <a href="/#">white vinegar</a> or a mild cleaning product, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get off all the accumulation.<br />The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and <a href="/#">soil</a> seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the <a href="/#">soil</a>, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops. </span></span><br /> <span><span>Another trick is to GENTLY rub just under the gasket with a wooden toothpick. This will remove debris lodged under the gasket.</span></span><br /> <span><span>Cleaning the bottom and edges of the door will help to prevent unpleasant odors coming from your dishwasher.</span></span>

What kind of soil do they like?


I know this is an old post and I didn't see it until now. I missed helping last year, but if you have the same question....

They grow best in rich, well-drained soil with a basic pH (they like more alkaline than acidic). If your soil is naturally acidic, adding lime will help to provide these conditions. They are also heavy feeders. The addition of compost or manure to the soil as well the use of granular fertilizer will result in healthier, stronger plants.

What are cultivating tools? My neighbor said I have to buy some if I want to start gardening?


Cultivating tools are the tools needed to perform the tasks from breaking up the soil and preparing it for seeding to keeping the weeds out of the garden . The size of the garden and the type of soil determine how complex your tool collection. A 10' x 10' plot with soft soil could be handled with as little as a spade to break up or turn over the soil, a garden rake to level for seeding, and a weeding hoe to keep the weeds at bay. A larger garden with harder soil may require a power tiller to prepare the soil for seeding and there are countless types of hand and power tools to help with the task of weeding and soil conditioning. There are many inexpensive gardening books to help get you started. I recommend that you do some reading to see what you are getting into.

Odor


You probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some white vinegar, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get all the accumulation off.
The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and soil seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the soil, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more of the soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops. Try the door cleaning first and then run a cycle when the dishwasher is empty, using about 1/4 cup of white vinegar. This should be all you need to do.
I hope this helps with your "stinky" problem. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!
Good luck

How to use self clean for oven


Turn off the oven light and remove all pans and racks from the oven. Clean the oven and door frames with a non-abrasive cleaner. Do not clean the door gasket. Remove any excess grease or debris from the oven bottom.

Close the door and move the lock lever to the right. The "Lock" indicator will light. Press the "Clean" pad, then press the up or down arrows on the "Set" pad to adjust the cleaning time: two hours for light soil, three hours for medium soil and four hours for heavy soil.

Cancel self-cleaning after it has started by pressing "Cancel."

Wait one hour after the cleaning cycle has ended for the "Lock" indicator to go out. Unlock the door.

Clean the oven racks with soapy water and a scouring pad and put them back in the oven.

Just had a conservatory built and it has been pointed out to me that some of the bricks have a crack going from going from top to bottom of the brick is this a problem?


I depends on a lot of factors. It could easily be a one time shift in the footers and foundation. Or it could be that the footers are not deep enough and your having a freeze/thaw problem. Or your drainage could be depositing too much water at that point causing either the soil to swell then shrink; or back to the freeze/thaw problem. It could be the footers were not sized properly or have enough rebar in them. It could be that your soil does not support that much weight or that enough top soil wasn't removed or the loose soil wasn't removed and caused a settling of the foundation. As you can see, there are many factors the can cause the problem and I didn't mention them all. If the crack it now bigger that an pencil lead; no problem. If is is big enough to insert a 16D nail, then you should be concerned. Call the local building inspector and see if he can give you any free advice.
