SOURCE: tablet drawer,dispenser wont open at all

Hi, well you we need to check the ribbon cable in the door lining to make sure that none of the cables have been broken with the movement of the door. If they are fine then you should replace the dispenser unit if you are getting 240v to the dispenser solinoid.
Get back if you have further problems...................?

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not clean dishes, soap does not fully go away

Water Inlet Valve

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Heating Element

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.
Filter/Drain Grate

There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher. Consult your owner's manual for specific directions for removing your dishwasher's filter and cleaning it.

  • . Detergent or Detergent Cup

    It could just be that you aren't using enough soap to completely wash your dishes. Your dishwasher may be designed to dispense soap at two different times during the wash cycle. If you don't fill all of the detergent cups, then the diswasher will lose a cleaning cycle. Also, if you use a gel-type detergent, try switching to a powered kind. Powders tend to dissolve better in hot water. And don't buy in bulk. Detergents are most effective in the first two weeks. After that, they decrease in potency.
    Alternatively, your dishwasher's detergent cup could be defective in some way. It is possible that it is gunked up full of built up detergent, and a thorough cleaning may be enough to get it working again. If that doesn't do the trick, you probably need to replace the entire detergent cup assembly. If your cup isn't even opening, My dishwasher detergent cup won't open.

    Cycle Selector Switch
    Sometimes a dishwasher's cycle selector switch is the reason why dishes are not coming completely clean. Test your selector switch to determine whether or not it has become defective. If it has, replace it.

    If he Dishes Are Not Clean:

    - Have you put the right amount of detergent into the dispenser?

    - Is the wash cycle suitable for the dishes you have placed inside the
    appliance?
    - Are the filter and microfilter clean?

    - Can the sprayer arms turn freely?

    This is how the manual helps.

    Tip

    Dishwasher does not dispense cleaning tablet


    The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

    If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

    Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

    If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
    In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

    If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

    Hi I am experiencing a problem with my hoover washing machine, when the machine is turned on it is not taking the powder from the drawer or filling with water?. It is a Family 1300 mega load hope you can...


    There are a few reasons that you are having this problem.

    It's possible that the hose that supplies the water is blocked. If the drawer and powder are totally dry, the solenoid that supplies the water to the detergent drawer may be bad. Some machines use hot water to dispense the detergent and cold water to dispense fabric softener, so both must be available to that type of machine regardless of the wash/rinse temperature selection.

    I'm not familiar with Hoover. If you open the drawer and see a tab that stops the drawer, depressing the tab may allow the drawer to be removed and cleaned at a sink. They are not dishwasher-safe and must be cleaned by hand.

    If this does not help, please repost your question.

    Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.

    My dish washer soap does not dissolve, whether or not I put the tablet or the pillow into the soap dispenser. Is it the soap dispenser door? Would hard water buildup create low water pressure so the soap...


    The most likely causes are the you are using a tablet in a gel coating but putting the tablets into the dispenser drawer when the dispencer drawer is damp, thus causing the tablet to stick inside the housing; or, if the dispenser drawer is releasing the tablet into the bottom of the cabinet then I would say you have a problem with your water heater. In which case you would need an enginner to come and replace the heater.

    Hope this is of help

    Hello. IF you are placing the tablet in the soap dispenser, it may be that the dispenser drawer is not opening as it should. Try putting the tablet in one of the silver ware baskets and see if it dissolves. Joe

    Detergent tablet not dissolving.


    sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

    if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

    Dshwasher tablet wnt come ut and dshes very wet


    The detergent tablet dispenser door is energized by a solenoid wired directly to timer control board. The drawer will normally open releasing the tablet when the machine starts filling.

    If the Drawer does not release the tablet, then either dispenser solenoid is faulty, or timer board mast be replaced.

    If the machine is functional but does not release, then the technician will probably need to replace the detergent table dispenser solenoid, that often is built in with dispenser assembly.

    You can call support ringing the number listed at the end of the owners manual.

    Do not know how to add dishwashing liquid to machine


    Fill your clean, dry dispenser cup with detergent and close it.The water streams through the closed dispenser and comes out at the bottom of the dispenser. Make sure you have 120 deg f water coming to the dishdrawer and never put anything in that dishwasher that is to tall or comes up above the drawer when you start the dishwasher it has a lid that comes down and if it does not seal you will get an f1 code and it will require a tech.
