Does the soap dispenser open but the detergent is soggy? That is pretty much always due to water temp under 140 degrees.

SOURCE: upper tray doesn't clean, lower

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.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

How do I run just a rinse cycle if the soap hasn't been completely removed during the complete cycle?


Water for the rinse cycle runs through a different compartment (designed for fabric softener) of the soap drawer and so remaining soap will not spoil the rinse.

Left over soap can be a problem as it is difficult and unpleasant to clean and if it isn't removed it can block the outlet and cause a flood. Check the instructions of your washer but generally the soap drawer will pull right out for cleaning in the sink and to check the outlets are clear.

Using a different detergent could improve things. Lots of people find it more satisfactory to put the detergent in the drum with the wash for some cycles.

My wirlpool dishwasher tab compartment don't open through the wash cycle

The dishwasher completed it cycle but didn't use any dish soap and didn't clean the dishes.


It appears that, the soap compartment box did not open during the wash cycle. First check that whether this is the problem. If water flow is good and you are convinced that, the wash has taken place without the soap then, check the soap box relay latch ( if you can do it yourself.)

If this is not possible you have take the help of the service provider authorized by the co.
You can keep soap in a small cup and place it in the upper tray in a suitable place and run the wash till the repairs are attended!.

Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying


You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.
