Question about Fisher and Paykel DD24DCFX6 Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher DW60CSX1 is approx 3-4 years old and is now not cleaning dishes. The tablet is often still in the bottom half dissolved and the dishes are dirty & wet. I've checked the filter, the arm and the hose and can't see why it is doing this. The finish powerballs I've been using I've never had a problem with before. Could you suggest a solution?

The dishwashing tablet does not dissolve and so dishes etc are not cleaned


Dishwasher receptacle door may not be opening. Place tablet at bottom of dishwasher. Also ensure water is hot enough. Finally try liquid detergent.

I went to take out my dishes out of the dishwasher this morning and the tablet was sitting at the bottom of the machine half disolved and most of my dishes weren't washed properly. What is the problem?


1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

Dishwasher 3 in 1 detergent tablet not dissolving.


I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.

Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.

The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.

Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.

Hope that helps and best regards!

Tablet not fully dissolving. dishes not clean after wash.


The water is not hot enough. It may be pausing to heat the water and when you open the door it resets and starts again. Check the electric element at the bottom that heats the water to see if it is burnt out.

I have a Chef Classic dishwasher - not washing properly


The caddy for cutlery on this model is in front of the compartment where you put the tablets. What'll sometimes happen, is a spatula or wooden spoon or something in the caddy will hold the tablet compartment lid shut - it'll stop them coming out properly.
After a while the water movement will move the obstruction and the tablet will come out, but it'll only be dissolved for a bit of the wash and the dishes won't be cleaned properly.

Dishwasher tablets not dissolving


It may just be the way you are loading the machine.  If the dishes are not allowing the the detergent door to open fully, the tablet sits in the dispenser until you open the dishwasher, letting the dispenser door open and the half dissolved tablet falls out!     Try being more careful how you load the machine or just chuck the tablet in the bottom of the machine instead of the dispenser!
