In some models one can select either the top rotor or bottom. being a new unit possibly you have not seen options given. very seldom a timer related problem.

Common problem, bad timer. Press Scrub Wash and Del/Econo at the same time and the cycle will end.

13 yr old dishwasher suddenly stopped working mid pre wash. Water left in bottom of machine. Power point is fine. Will not start at all now though. No lights turn on either. Is it fixable ?


If it is 13 years old, it has most likely reached its end of life--whatever the cause, something has malfunctioned. However, a service technician would probably be able to advise.

Hi there, I have an ESL424 Electrolux dishwasher and I'm having some problems with it not washing dishes properly. Is there any common reason for this? The problem seems to be more apparent in the top...


first thing is to ensure the top spray arm is turning freely. make sure nothing is blocking it, for example one of them dishwasher fresheners.

also check the holes on both spray arms to ensure they not blocked up, also if you can remove the spray arms and clean them out, also clean out the filter.

i also always susjest putting the upper basket on the highest setting as high plates etc. in the bottom basket can stop spray arm turning

after checking all of the above, put the spray arms in the 12 o clock posistion and turn the dishwasher on, when it starts washing open the door to see if they have moved.

also always use a good quality diswasher tablet, cheaper ones dont always give good wash results.

Upper tray does not wash clean, bottom does


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

7-8 year old KitchenAid washes dishes on bottom, but not on top


Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.

No washing action through washing arms even after


Many times the washing arms of the bosch and few other models will clog up with old soap or debris.

Try removing arms and clean out any debris by blowing air through unit and if need be a toothpick or dental tool to remove any solid debris that is stuck. Reattach arms and run through cycle. Hopefully this works otherwise it could very well be the pump.

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean


Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.
