Dishwasher doesn't seem to be working. Have used Finish dishwasher cleaner in it & when done, the cleaner bottle is STILL FULL.

The bottles are designed to deslove a small disk at temperatures above 60c. It's possible either your machine isn't heating up, or the thermostat is faulty and it is colder temp than it should be running at

Can I use TABLETS in my dishdrawers?

Usually the Finish tablets work well. Drop it in the cutlery basket.

There is a smell coming from the dishwasher - what is the best way to clean it?

Frankly, the best way is to buy a propriatary dishwasher cleaner. FINISH do a square bottle of blue and yellow liquid that attacks both residual grease and limescale - You put it in the dishwasher on a normal cycle with no dishes in the machine and run it through a hot cycle (Instructions on the bottoe anyway). No doubt there are other similar products around, but for once, I tend to go for expensive high quality rather than an economy brand.

Often water left in base of drawer upper and or lower... Not cleaning well. Powdery substance on dishes

Assuming you are using the correct rinse aid and detergent, my opinion is that there is muck in the drain hoses.

If you have cleaned the area under the filter plate and there is no difference, then I suggest you buy two Finish dishwasher cleaner kits from the super market.

Follow instructions on the kit and run empty drawer (one at a time) with the kit in it and at the longest cycle which will ensure a temperature of atleast 60deg.

See if there is any difference.

Dishwasher leaves behind gritty residue i am not sure of what to try...

We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, 10 years old, never any problems until 2 weeks ago, then we started noticing a gritty subtance on the dishes and glassware. We're on well service, psi 40-60. water hardness is 6 grains. small trace of sulphur, and we have a Mermaid sulphur system, then a complete house carbon filter, and finally a Culligan water softner. Checked everything, Water temp. at kitchen was 120, all cycles on dishwasher were operating. Called in repair service, he says something is breaking down in the dishwasher, best to buy a new one. That'll be $150.00. Thank you very much. Tried the white vinegar, no change. Next bought 2 bottles of Dishwaser Magic. Slight improvement. Next bought 1 bottle of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner. Bingo. The thing is like brand new. even the trays slide in/out much easier. None of the dishsoaps contain phosphate, which is what helps disolve the minerals in the water. I'm not sure what the gritty stuff is, maybe the buildup over time, and it just keeps getting redistributed through the wash and rinse cycles, and finally baked on in the dry cycle. According to a tech with many years repairing appliances, the majority of their calls are for dishwasher poor performance, all because they removed the one compound that's been cleaning our dishes for years, Phosphate. We've always used Cascade gel soap. best on the market today, Finish Quantum. We tried it and dishes look terrific. It's a small tablet that fits in the soap dispenser. All Mfg's. today recommend that you run a dishwasher cleaner once a year, Experienced tech recommends every 3 months maybe more if you're on hard water. Good luck.

Hi, I have a GE GSD3207P. With plugged spray arms

I don't know if they even have this product on the shelf anymore but this product is ideal for what your asking for: Too bad that this link does not offer it in single bottle qty. (12ea) The link is just so you can see the bottle and label.

What you need is a non foaming, non acidic, non corrosive and non flammable tub and tile cleaner.

Once you find that product.. start your machine let it fill completely and run for a moment then remove enough water to add the whole bottle of your cleaner. Start the machine for about 1 min, unlatch the door and let it soak for 1 hour. run it for another minute and soak another hour. Then check to see how everything looks. If it is clear then let the cycle finish. If not do the run / soak routine until the dishwasher finally pumps out normally. After you are done with the normal cycle put it thru a rinse and dry, then return it back to normal use.

Fisher&paykel d603 dishwasher

Disconnet Dishwasher, Remove lower dishdraw, soak up excess water with a towel, use a hairdryer to dry water especially under grey plastic cover. Then check seal on either dishdraw and make sure they are not kinked or leaking as this has most likely caused the problem. Power up problem should be resolved. Don't leave dishdraw unattended till you validate problem definately fixed.

Water left in the bottom of dishdraw

Try running a wash with a dishwasher cleaner product.

There may be a slight blockage of the outlet pipe caused by grease. On a kinked pipe this will be enough to stop it emptying properly.

Make sure the outlet pipe has a plastic former to prevent a kink at the highest point, and that the hose isn't flattened or pulled taut.

If after running the cleaner and checking, there is no improvement at all, the pump impeller may be obstructed or a replacement pump needed.

Hope this helps your problem.
