Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a dishwasher and the rinse cycle doesn't seem to work. I only know this because the the compartment where the rinse solution goes in is still full when i go to fill it for the next wash. So the solution is not getting used, indicating that the rinse cycle is not rinsing.

The rinse cycle uses very little rinse agent, you may not notice a difference in the level for at least a week or two of daily use.

Hi, my Zanussi zdf511 doesnt seem to be adding any rinse aid on any of the rinse aid settings?


Rinse aid dispenser can receive a maximum level of 140 ml rinse agent. Consumption rinse agent could be per wash cycle of 2 to 7 ml depending on the settings.
Thus 140 ml is enough for 20-70 wash cycles, depending on the degree of adjustment.

I have a new stainless steel Samsung dishwasher. It doesn't seem to be drying properly. Dishes and dishwasher still very wet after cycle is completed.


Hello

Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo

Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

If these recommendations do not improve drying time, please contact Samsung Customer Care

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your post doesn`t specify a model number, however on most Bosch dishwashers in order to change from "rinse & hold" to "regular" ( or any cycle ) simply turn the unit "on" and once the machine begins push the regular button twice.

Or the button applicable to the cycle you want.

That should change the display to look like this...

If this doesn`t work, try it for "econo" or any alternative and let me know how it goes.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

Accidentally put normal dishwashing liquid in the rinse aid space


Hello,

The amount you have put in although not good is not too serious.You can try putting nothing in dispenser for a few washes and see how that goes.If you are using the 3 or 4 in one tablets you should not need to dose with rinse aid or salt as it is in the tablets.

Hope that helps.

the best way to use your dishwasher is the way it was designed.
if your unit has a compartment for jet dry or rinse agent then you should add and fill that compartment with rinse aid. try not to buy soap with any extra like soap with jet dry or shine plus . because when you fdo that sometimes customer think that they dont need rinse agent . big mistake. rinse agent is deposited at a certain time in the cycle. diod you know that is you use lets say jet dry and a soap with shine plus or rinse aid in soap the machine can over suds? as a tech trust me i have seen it.let me know if i was helpful. drop a 4thumbs up post

I have a Maytag Jetclean and it doesn't rinse well


Probably unlikely that it's clogged, but rather defective.

Dishwasher problem


My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
Thankyou
