My dishwasher leaves sand like residue in my glass cups. I have tried running it empty and with vinegar, it still does it, how do I stop this from happening?


Hi





If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.



Hope this helps...

My superba dishwasher leaves a heavy film on the dishes. Sometimes it is black as though there was dirt in it. I use Cascade and electrosol jet dry. melody


Hello, Over time dirt and grime both from the dishes and from the chemicals in the water build up in your dishwasher, you can resolve this by going to Wal-Mart, K-Mart or your local grocery store, their is a product that comes in a square bottle, it is in your dishwasher soap isle, you empty your dishwasher and take the cap off, tip it upside down inside your silverware tray, turn your hot water on in your sink and get it hot, then turn it off, turn on your dishwasher and run it from the pots and pans setting, it will clean the scum out of the dishwasher, I reccomend useing it every 30 days to keep your dishwasher clean and opperating efficiently, also you can remove the arm in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean that out by gripping the big ring at the base of the unit and turning it counter-clock wise and to clean it use a toothpick or q-tips to clean the debris from the holes in the arm, then install it back after you rinse the arm in the sink............hope this helps.........

FOOD PARTICLES ON DISHES


Hi

If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:
Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Internal filters Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.

  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.

If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem.

Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Water temperature To get the best cleaning results, the water entering your dishwasher needs to be hot enough. Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink for about 30 seconds before starting the dishwasher, to pre-heat it. Also, if your dishwasher lets you select a higher wash or rinse temperature, try that to see if it helps.

To check the temperature of the hot water that comes from your kitchen faucet use a waterproof thermometer. If the water isn't 120 degrees Fahrenheit, your dishwasher may have trouble getting your dishes clean. You could increase the temperature of the hot water to the whole house--and therefore the dishwasher--by adjusting the hot water heater thermostat.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Detergent cup Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.

Dishwasher won't empty


sounds like the hose is blocked (usually with broken glass, followed by larger food particles) that runs from the dishwasher to the sink. You may need to remove this piece to check. If that isn't the problem, it's probably electrical.

E1 Error on LG Dishwasher (LD-2040WH)


Maybe the blockage is somewhere else. How about removing all the trays from the dishwasher, in other words, empty it from all racks and dishes and try it again
