My tablet won't dissolve.

I have a problem. my dishwasher is clean however my pots come out as dirty as they went in. my dishwasher heats up from a cold water tap. often i find my tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher at the end of the cycle still intact. my pots are hot from drying but wonder if the whirlpool has two elements for heating? i cannot understand what is going wrong. hope someone can help.

Sounds to me like the dishwasher isn't filling up with cold water. I had a similar problem a few months ago, caused by limescale blocking the inlet and drain valves. Might be worth trying some kettle limescale cleaner solution and putting it inside the machine - and leaving it overnight then trying the machine out with no dishes etc in it.

Beko dishwasher DW603 6 years old, its sometimes not washing properly, I find the tablet undesolved in the bottom, also some times not drying pots. sometimes it works fine.

If the dishwasher is undergoing short programmes and low-temperature washes then your dishwasher may not allow for the tablet to fully dissolve leaving some remaining tablet left behind. Another reason why the tablet may not be dissolving is because of the water hardness of the area you live in as the tablet may take longer to dissolve in the water.

Tablet not dissolving, and dishes dirty

Hi,Nicole, try this:
Run the water nearest the dishwasher (usually the sink), getting the water as hot as possible immediately before starting the dishwasher. This will help getting the tablet to dissolve.

Not cleaning pots 100%

Hello,
Does it still seem to be doing a normal wash except that you have no heat when wash is on.This could be a faulty Heater or Programmer.

Hope this was a help.

Good Luck.

Dishwasher cycle runs: tablet is not dissovlved, dishes dirty

If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat.

Tablet not fully dissolving. dishes not clean after wash.

The water is not hot enough. It may be pausing to heat the water and when you open the door it resets and starts again. Check the electric element at the bottom that heats the water to see if it is burnt out.

Hotpoint dwt 10 dishwasher - the dishwasher tablet is not dissolving and remains in the bottom of the dishwasher after running a load therefore dishes arent cleaned!

I know it sounds strange, but many times when detergent dissolve, a failed heating element is to blame. The detergent needs that water to be hot to dissolve and activate the detergent.

Recommend you check the heating element for obvious damage/failure. When you run the full cycle, does the heating element get hot? If not, replacing it is not as hard as it appears. Post back here with further questions, OK?

If the heating element _is_ working, the other possibility is a failing wash pump motor, but depending on the age of your dishwasher, replacing
