Kenmore dishwasher - soap not dispensing

Hi,

 

I used one of those detergent tabs....but when the dishes are finished washing, the tab is still in the dispenser.  I tried it a second time, and the tab is at the bottom of the dishwasher undissolved.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

That sounds crazy but hears some suggestions you must have real hard water for that tab- not to dissolve hear is a crazy question is the water coming in to the d/w hot enough or even hot at all i had cases where i found that the d/w was hooked up to cold water

Whirlpool dp1040xtx flashing code 61 and 66. 61 flashed a couple times. What's wrong?


F6E1 - Water is not present in the machine when it should be.

Could be: inlet hose filter clogged, blocked holes on spray arms, dishes not loaded according to manual, water tap closed or water pressure too low, drain hose placed incorrectly, DW filters clogged, check dispenser (missing dispenser gasket, improper detergent), check water indicator (OWI or VWI) depending of model DW, check connections beetwen OWI (optical water indicator) and CB (control board), main motor, wiring, control board.

Check the foam level in the appliance. Depending what kind of detergent was used. Was the foam level too high?
Comment: Washing tabs combined with short washing cycles can produce too high foam level.

AEG 50879


This option can be selected by pressing the corresponding button, and remains in memory until the same
button is pressed again. This option modifies the phases of the programme in order to optimize performance
when "3 in 1, 5 in 1, 7 in 1, ......." detergent tablets are used:

- variation of the duration of the programme and the temperatures required to dissolve the detergent tablets.
- reduction of water exchange
- exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid
- exclusion of regeneration

If you use a dishwasher in the traditional manner (detergent, rinse aid, salt) then the Multitab function is disabled. If you use tabs that are already on the market with rinse aid and salt there is a possibility during washing cycle to add a double dose of rinse aid. From rinse aid dispenser and rinse aid from tabs. This will lead to poor cleaning results, glasses will look like they have been washed in milk..To avoid that you must turn on "Multitab" function and thus exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid from rinse aid dispenser. This function also stops the regeneration and will not spend salt because salt is already in a tabs. Also extends the washing time because tablets need more time to dissolve in relation to the traditional powder detergent.

Dishwasher doesn't wash dishes right


The solenoid that opens the detergent door may have had water leak into it. Remove the inner panel from the main door, remove the solenoid mechanism and it's core. With the core out, clean the solenoid interior and the core surface with hot water. The core should fall out of the solenoid by gravity if it is clean. DO NOT OIL THE CORE OR SOLENOID. If there are signs of water entry to the solenoid, check the detergent dispenser seal for damage. Try using a tab type of detergent rather than liquid or powder. Make sure the release mechanism is clean as well. Hope this repairs your problem!

Dishes do not dry


Hi..
Try these..
1.Check that you are using a regular machine cycle, not a short or special cycle. 2.There could be insufficient water fill or pressure. Run your dishwasher when other household demands for water are low (i.e.k, laundry or bathing). 3.This may be due to improper loading of dishes. Check that your large dishware doesn't block the detergent dispenser or water spray. Check your dishwasher manual for proper loading techniques. 4.You may have used too little detergents. Use Finish tabs for even dosing. 5.The spray arm may have been blocked, please ensure that the spray arm can rotate.
please rate my suggestion

I have a DW12-PFE2-2 the dishwasher tablet does not dissolve,it is still in the dishwasher detergent dispenser after wash has finished?


HI Accumulated detergent from prior washings can cause problems with the soap dispenser. Buildup can get into the soap dispenser and interfere with the spring that triggers the flip-out tray, or it can slow down the pivot action of the tray. If the dispenser is not opening, first make sure you aren't loading the machine so dishes or pots and pans are touching the dispenser, and that dish racks aren't blocking the dispenser. Also check to make sure the dispenser tray isn't cracked. If leftover detergent in the tray is almost liquid, rather than just damp, the tray may be damaged.
If you can't solve the problem easily, replace the entire dispenser unit. This is usually easier than trying to disassemble it and replace separate parts. Use a new dispenser made for the dishwasher. The screws holding the dispenser in place may be on the front of the unit, or you may have to remove the front door panel to get to the screws and make the replacement. Remove the old dispenser and secure the new one, connecting it in the same way the old unit was attached.
THANK U,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Check both arms are spinning freely when you have the machine loaded up normally.
If thats ok you could try powder instead of tabs if they are not disolving correctly

Dishwasher not cleaning well


clean the dispensor assy around the spring door hinge witha vinegar water solution . liquid detergent has a tendency to not fully break if your water is not hot enough, causes doors to stick, reccomend running hot water before starting d/w, and using a quailty powder( not tabs) detergent

Try what my wife does. She uses the individually contained detergent/rinse bubble packs (tab packs). No messy granular detergent and easy to simply place inside the silverware basket. Your dishes should wash spotless, like ours. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
