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...

Kitchenaid DW KUDS30FXSS Cycle starts then I hear a solenoid actuate 4 times then unit goes into cancel drain cycle


Here's a link for the repair manual for your dishwasher:
http://www.appliancerepair.net/kitchenaid-dishwasher-repair.html
Concentration should be on Chapter 2 subsection 2-3 "No Fill"
Then go to Chapter 6; subsections 6-2, 6-3, 6-3a, 6-3b, 6-3c, and 6-3h for testing procedures on relays, actuator valves, etc.

My dishwsaher wont drain water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

I have an Inglis Soundblock II Dishwasher. The


It could be that the machine isn't filling properly with water- which could be a faulty or clogged water inlet valve. I'm not quite familiar with Inglis, but if you still have the manual, check and see if there is a way to adjust the amount of time the water valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle.

Or just add a liter or so of water at the beginning of a cycle and see if that helps- but make sure you add it after you hear the soap dispenser open- the beginning of most wash cycles is a quick rinse cycle, so any water you add will only be in there for a couple minutes before the machine drains and attempts to refill.

LXGH E5 Code


I need to check my codes to be positive. And I'll check them this weekend. But, I believe E5 is from excess water in the unit, and so it won't go into rinse and add more water.

First and most common -- the drain hose, at the back of the unit is kinked. The unit gets pushed back against the wall and kinks the line.

Second, your probes are dirty. The ones in the back right corner detect water level. Clean them with a green scrungee even if they look clean.

Good luck - Mike
