If you have hard water, it is likely that the sprayer in the bottom of the dishwasher has become clogged with hard water deposits. This may be the case, even with soft water.

On most models, the sprayer looks like a propellor, and can be removed by carefully unscrewing the fastener at the top and carefully removing the sprayer. If you have a digital camera, I recommend taking pictures at each disassembly step, so you know how to put things back together (in the reverse order that they were removed). It should not be too difficult to remove it, but you may have to gently work with the fastener at the top to get it to budge.

You will need to clean all the spray holes and ensure that none are clogged. I used an ice pick and toothpicks to clean out the holes recently on my dishwasher. (We have hard water).

You may need to soak the sprayer in vinegar overnight if you're not able to completely clean out all the holes.

Good luck!

My Hotpoint Aquarius diswasher won't dissolve the washing tablets


It sounds like you have a water supply issue. If you are on well water the screen in the water valve may be clogged. You can access this, remove it and clean it on most dishwashers. It is located in the valve where the water hooks up to the unit.

TOP DRAWER WHEN LOADED, DOES NOT GET WASHED


top tray not washing properly and tablets not dissolving are linked. On my FDW60 same problem was down to the top tray not being pushed fully home (tendency to use closing the door to push top home). This meant the flap of the tablet 'hatch' was stopped from fully opening by the tray, also poor water pressure to drive the rotating sparge bar on the underside of the top tray.
Be sure to push the top tray all the way home BEFORE closing the door, aaannd SPENT!

Oversudsing
This can be due to using a laundry or handwash detergent instead of a specific dishwasher detergent instead. It could also be due to excessive amounts of rinse aid in the dispenser or certain food soils that contain a high level of protein such as eggs.
