My Bosch dishwasher is failing to clean anything and there's guck and residue on everything. I've cleaned the filter repeatedly to no avail. HELP!


It needs a thorough cleaning, the "guck" is your problem. Do not use liquid, it will make it worse. The "squares" are also detrimental. BOSCH engineered this machine to function best using loose powder. Remove all screens and use a calcium or lime scale remover with water very very hot, like from a coffee pot and run it empty a few times.

Miele6841 plus novotronic red intake/drain light is on, how do I clean it


Hi - there are two things to check - turn off the water & clean the filter on the hose fitting - secondly empty trays - remove the mesh on the bottom, locate the round spring over a plastic housing on the right side - beneath is the housing pull upwards to dislodge- here you will find the pump impellar- clear any debri from here - assemble & test the machine...

This would normalyy fix the machine.

DO NOT FORGET TO SWITCH THE MACHINE"OFF" PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING REPAIRS - OKAY!!!!

Always smells after clean load empty. Water in the reservoir looks dirty. Now see some food deposits on one side of the door base inside machine.


There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

A helpful rating and a testimonial would be greatly appreciated if you are satisfied with my solution...

Fine grit on dishes, especially on top rack. bottom is full of food waste.


Depending on the machine you have it will have a filtering system to filter out food waste as it washes. This stops the food from being circulated by the wash process as water is cycled through the pump, internal plumbing, and washer arms. Your unit is failing to filter the water.
On the base of your unit in the centre on the floor will be a drain. Some have a visible filter and others have "soft food disposal" system. They are meant to be opened and cleaned from time to time and yours sounds like it is time.
Visible filters will lift out. Some you turn or there will be a catch holding it in place. Others will have obvious screws holding the filer. Open yours and take a look for food waste or debris clogging the drain and filter. Clear out anything you see there.
The washer arms also clog over time. You can remove them also and clear away anything from inside. The holes in the arms can be cleaned with a bamboo skewer or piece of wire. This often makes on old tired machine perform like new again.
While you are in there, check under the float valve. It looks like an upside down tea cup on the floor of the machine usually near the front. Make sure nothing is stuck under it and that it lifts up and down freely.
Hope this helps you. Please rate this answer if it has helped you.

I have a fisher & Paykel dishwasher, at first it would not empty all the water out, we have now manage to get to empty, but it now appear not to change programs.


If you have the child lock function on then you are probably not able to change the controls. Disable the child lock if that is the case.

The cause of water not emptying could be many. Program was not complete, filter is blocked and so on.

Try to turn off the power and on again. See if it makes any difference.

Follow the user guide to clean the filter plate and the drain filter. Try to run the empty dishwasher on the current program (if you can) with a cleaning kit which you can get from super market.

Finally, clean the edges of the drawer with damp cloth including the program buttons.

Hope something will help.

F7 fault


I had the same problem. Indicator flashing. F7 displayed. Nothing seems to work. The following worked for me: Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a programme). this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filter's clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine. F7 in whirlpoolese may mean "Clean my filter now or you can wash your own bloody dishes"

Problem with conia cdw1211 dishwasher


Had same problem - was advised by service centre to remove secondary filter (round mesh cylinder in main filter on floor of machine) & discard it as it became coated with oil & caused the sensors to malfunction. Fixed the problem immediately.
