Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

My dishwasher leaves a soap trail down the door. I ran it with the door ajar and the lower arm turns about a 1/4 turn then stops and emits a very low sream of water. Could this be the pump/motor ?

You need to replace the dispenser or possibly the wax motor on the dispenser. I would be more than happy to help you. But need to know the brand an model # so I can make sure that I give you the proper advise.

OK, I figured out what was wrong with it! One of the hoses, the one lined in a metallic mesh, was twisted to the point where it was chocking the water flow. There was no need to bring out the dishwasher, just remove the small doors under the front door and I was able to spot the twisted metallic hose. Just cut the power before touching anything and then straighten it and make sure it doesn't bend. Put the small doors back, connect the power and run it. Dishes came out clean as a whistle.

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaves soap in dispenser.

Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.  
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only.  Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete"  or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting.  All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6.  Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade)  Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month.  Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack.  Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working.  Good luck.

Soap remains on the dishes after the wash cycle is complete.


Check that the holes in the spray arms haven't blocked up and the filters in the bottom are clean. The arms may not be rotating. To check this, when the machine is washing, open the door, turn all the spray arms to face the same direction, shut the door and leave running for about 30 seconds. Open the door again and look at the position of the spray arms. They should have moved.

When dishwasher is washing and rinsing, water comes out from under the machine and goes all over the floor.


Hello

Look for leaks around the lower spray arm or soap door. Check the plastic on the lower spray arm to make sure it is not cracking down the middle. Replace the arm if you find any cracks or splits. If the soap door is leaking, it probably needs a replacement gasket.

Our asko 3250 is leaving s film and the soap is not coming out of the reservoir. It just sticks in there. Thedishes also have a kind of crust on them.


Check to see that both upper and lower arms are working. You can do this by suddenly opening the diswasher about 6 in and observing if the wand arm on top is revolving. This is done by water from the lower arm being pumped up through a tube mounted in the lower basket that centers over the lower arm and upper arm. Check that the tube is clear. check that water from the lower arm center is being pumped. Check that the hole is clear. if you have hard water, then sometimes the holes get clogged up and the arm will not rotate.(just like a lawn sprinkler) The upper arm rotating is what washes the detergent out of the soap dispenser. To aid in cleaning the spray holes, pour some white vinegar in the bottom of the machine about two cups, and turn the machine on high temp wash. Do not let the mixture drain out untill you have cycled it about five times. When the wash cycle has about finished stop and restart. The acid in the vinegar will help disolve the calcium and hardened soap. After the finish rinse cycle, you can put a little lemon juice in the machine and let it was through, that way the vinegry smell will disapate.

After the dishwasher runs there is a lot of soap left in the soap dispenser. I've tried powder and liquid. Liquid is a bit better. I've tried using less soap but there still is a lot left. Also my glasses...


With the LG LDF6810 model, this is not a common problem. Please try the following test, With and empty dishwasher, add a small to normal amount of dry dishwasher powder and run an (empty) load.
Check to see if any soap remains in the dispenser cup.
If any remains, here are three things to do: 1.) Upgrade your dishwasher detergent to a name brand powder (e.g.: Electrosol or Cascade)
2.) When you load the dishwasher, do not place large items in the front, near the door/soap dispenser.
3.) Before you load the dirty dishes for the next several loads, with your hand, turn both the upper and lower wash arms so they point at the door. Load as you normally do and push the racks fully in. Before you close the door, spin both the upper and lower arms and confirm that they spin freely and neither hits anything. if either does not spin freely, pull out the rack and arrange so the arms can spin freely.
I find that the only time I have left over detergent powder is when the wash arms do not spin freely.
This is a common problem on most every energy star/water conserving dishwashers.
Please report back what you find, OK?

Bottom thing is not turning... suds is running


YOU ARE USING WRONG DETERGENT IF YOU HAVE SUDS TO THAT EXTREME, OR DETERGENT LEFT ON ONE OF THE DISHES. CAN'T SAY THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN ANY SUDS IN A DISHWASHER THAT USED DETERGENT MADE FOR A DISH WASHER. THE SPRAY ARM WILL NOT TURN AS THE IMPELLER CANNOT PUMP AIR (SOAP BUBBLES).

Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking.
