Be sure that your rinse aid is topped up.

It prevents the water from beading on surfaces allowing for easier drying.

Dishwasher does not drain


Dishwashers do not drain the water has to be pumped out of them.

If the water is not being pumped out on any cycle then the pump has failed and you either need to replace the water pump (which will be quite expensive) or buy a new dish washer. Pump failure is a pretty common in part because of the amount of debris many users don't rinse from items before placing them in the washer. Also the filters at the base of the washer need to be removed and cleaned frequently and this is often neglected.

If the water is only remaining in the washer for the final rinse cycle but is otherwise being pumped out on the wash cycles, then the issue will be with the electronic control board.

Dishwashwer continues a motor noise long after the quick rinse cycle ends


Hello Deborah!

Well, don't use the quick rinse cycle!

All seriousness aside, dishwashers are supposed to stop on the pump out cycle when the water level switch trips, indicating the tub is nearly empty (a little water always remains to protect the seal).

Why your problem exists only on quick rinse is a mystery, but I would check the water level float mechanism. They have a way of accumulating grunge and sticking. While many float switches are easily accessible in the front, bottom corner of the tub (and "click" as they are raised and lowered), some live in a container on the outside of the tub and may only be checked by pulling the whole dishwasher out.

All the best.

I have an Electrolux Dishwasher that always starts on low rinse


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I see that your Electrolux dishwasher starts cycle on low rinse. This typically indicates your dishwasher has low rinse aid. The RINISING AGENT LOW light, typically located near the Rinse Only Pad, comes on at the end of cleaning cycle when the rinse agent reservoir is low. The light will remain on through 5 successive cycles or until the reservoir is filled. Also, using rinse aid will enhance dryer performance and reduces water sports and filming. Hope this helps!

Shuts off mid cycle


it is likely the heater or thermostat are faulty. Try to run in short cycle like rinse which works on cold water.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Food odor builds up if dishes not washed daily, even though we rinse evrything thoroughly before loading dishwasher. No water remains at bottom - nothing appears to be stuck in drain. Any thoughts?


No matter how well you rinse wares, some food particles will always go into the machine. Sometimes these particles can build up and lead to what you describe. I would start by inpecting the wash tub area; remove screens, remove wash arms and clean as needed. You are looking for any residual food soil which would harbor bacteria. If all else fails, follow your nose!
Once everything is as clean as you can make it, then purchase a product for cleaning/deliming your machine. One I know of is called "Dishwasher Magic" which should be available at most appliance repair stores. Run this through the machine on a long or heavy cycle. Once complete, run a second cycle with nothing but water to rinse any lingering chemistry.
Lastly, for a 3rd (and final) cycle, add a cup of bleach to kill off any remaining odor-causing bacteria. But, DO NOT SKIP THE RINSE CYCLE mentioned above.
This should take care of the problem,
Kermit

Water will not drain out of the tub all the way and behind the front door bottom in the insulation seems to be wet. and the cycle seems to take a long time to run...thanks


My dishwasher, Bosch Model No. SHU9922UC/U12, Serial No. 10 0202 80447 01 0040 goes through its wash, rinse and dry cycles but sometimes there is some water remaining on the items in the upper tray and one inch or so of water remaining in the bottom of the tub. Once water leaked out onto my kitchen floor. I found some broken glass and some plastic in the circular trap at the bottom and have removed the detritus.
