Question about Dishwashers
The dispenser is open, the spray arms are rotating and are clean (have checked them for blockages). I also checked the filter, it was clean.
I did dry the detergent compartment before putting the tablet (as suggested in one of the websites). I have tried 3 different makes of tablets with different washing cycles, but in the end of each one the tblets were still there undissolved. Another suggestion, on different website was to put the tablet in the cutlery tray. I went for the dishwasher cleaner instead (the stuff that usually comes in a bottle). After the cycle the bottle was full.
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!

Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

Take off lower spray arm there is a spay hole underneath if its blocked the tablet gets left in the bottom. also check the filter is not split as rercycled food deposits is the cause of the blockage. short programme is not suitable for tablets,
