SOURCE: Where does the detergent go?

There is a circle on the door. When you have loaded the dishes, pour the detergent on the door to fill the circle and close the door.

SOURCE: Equator PLS600 spray arm will not move.

Problem solved. Removed spray arm assy including nut (attached to body). Manually moved propeller inside water inlet. This freed it up enough to get her working again. Apparent cause was enough debris in chamber to cause it to seize. Note that this fix was preceded by the famous WikiFix of filling chamber with baking soda then topping it off with white vinegar, left overnight. Also note that the above manual movement of the propeller was done with the machine on (not recommended) at the point in the cycle where the spray arm should have been operating.

SOURCE: I have an equator PLS600

Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin. If spray arm does spin freely, remove spray arm clip, spray arm and the post assy (the thing the spray arm attaches to). Try your WikiFix again. This time add baking soda to the hole the post assy came from. Top it off with white vinegar. Leave it overnight. In the morning, stick your finger down the hole where the spray arm assy sat. You should feel a plastic thing. This is a propeller attached to the recirculation pump. You need to free it up. Get that thing moving with your pinky or a chopstick or whatever. Try the machine without the spray arm. You should get water blasting up from the hole. Reassemble the spray arm.

SOURCE: My dishwasher is not draining

Hello Pat. Generally, when the dishwasher does not completely drain there is a partial blockage somewhere between the drain pump near the floor under the dishwasher and the trap in the kitchen sink. The only way to clear the partial blockage is to disassemble the drain. Begin by removing the lower panel on the front bottom of the machine. For that job you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver and a flash light.

Once the panel is off you will see the drain hose which goes through the side of the sink cabinet and heads down to the lower front of the dishwasher where it attaches to a small pump. Disconnect the drain line at that point, be prepared for the 2 cups of water that will flow out when the disconnection is done.

Unscrew the pump from the frame of the dishwasher so you can look inside of it where you may find the culprit, often a chunk of bone or glass. If the blockage is not in the pump, the next step is to disconnect the other end of the drain line so you can thoroughly check it by running water through it. Next, check inside of the garbage disposal if you have one, and then in the sink trap.

Once you have cleared the partial blockage reassemble everything. Problem solved. Joe
