Hello,
This means that either the soap cup dispenser is going bad or the control that sends power to it. You would need to check for proper voltage at the dispenser wax motor to verify.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes. Some soap remains in soap dish. Have tried on the enrgy saver cycle and 1 hour cycle.


Hi jerry1413,

Firstly, make sure you are using powdered soap, and not the 3 in 1 tablets. The 3 in 1 Tablets only release certain parts of itself on certain temperatures, and because all dishwashers aren't alike, they won't have the best of results on all makes & models. Cycles aren't run the same way on every Make, and don't follow the same order either. Trust Me ;-) , stick to Powder.

Furthermore, check the following link for some advice and suggestions on getting your dishwasher to clean properly again:

Smeg DI 409CA Dishwasher - Doesn't wash properly, tablet doesn't desolve and cycle lasted all night


Hi,

The first thing is have a look at the instruction manual from HERE

If the dishwasher is not washing properly then please follow these steps:
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
As you said that the water builds up at the bottom see If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help.


If further this does not solve your problem the the only solution is to get it repaired.

Goodluck..

Tablet not desolving after quick wash cycle


Find out whether your quick cycle is a wash cycle or a rinse only. If it is a wash it's obviously too short, and the tablet is not dissolving. You do not want undissolved tablets because they will contaminate your rinse water and u end up with soap on the dishes. You can switch to powder if a tablet isn't going to dissolve quick enough on your quick cycle.

Tablet is not dissolving from my dishwasher drawer


If it drops to the bottom when you open the dishwasher door - your soap dispenser is blocked by the rack or an utencil protruding from the rack. Make sure both racks slide in all the way to the back. (hint: check the middle spray arm inlet, make sure it aligns with the tube on back.
Good luck)

Hi,

Dishwasher - Soap Stuck in Cup If you have dishwasher detergent stuck in the soap cup after a full cycle, please check for the following conditions:

  • The water temperature should be at 120 degrees (140 degrees if your dishwasher has water heating capability). Check your water temperature Check your water temperature.


  • Make sure the soap cup is not blocked by anything.


  • Allow the dishwasher to fill and make sure it is getting a proper amount of water. The dishwasher should fill for about 90 seconds. On permatuf models, the water should measure 3/8" above the island near the center of the tub. On all other models, the water should measure about 1/2" below the heating element.


  • Check the lower spray arm for any blockage in spray holes or items that would restrict its turning.


  • Make sure the soap cup has opened at the end of the cycle.


  • Check the sump area inside the dishwasher for any restrictions.

Bad smell


Try running washer empty with soap or tablet in the regular cup and baking soda in the secondary cup. After cycle is complete and somewhat dry inside leave slightly open to allow air circulation overnight. This should help.

Tablets not dissolving


Sounds like whatever soap you are using is just too much soap your dishwsher can handle. The soap "packs" are usulally an overload of soap for most dishwashers. Just a few teaspoons of regular name brand soap sometimes will cure lots of dishwsher ills!!!
