Kenmore 13789 draining/cleaning issues


Check your wash arms - make sure the holes or nozzels are clear (not blocked), and make sure they are free to turn. Make sure you are not over-loading the dishwasher or placing large plates or pans in front of the soap dispenser. Next is to check to see if enough water is going into the DishWasher (DW). This varies with different models, so it's hard to tell you how much is enough. Next thing to check is to make sure the heater is working to heat the water during the wash cycle. (Listen for the soap dish to open, then open the door 10 or 15 minutes later and see if the water is hot.) If your dishwasher has a removable filter, you need to take that out and clean it at least once a month. And finally, if your dishwasher is all encrusted with calcium and hard-water deposits, you probably need to run a dishwasher cleaner in the machine. (Use Dishwasher Magic, or Finish Corp's Dishwasher cleaner, or Glisten, or even Lemi-Shine detergent-booster powder or their dishwasher cleaner.
Hope this helps!

Tip

Tips For Dishwasher for its safety and getting dishes cleanest


A) If your household is small, try gradullay accumulating a full load of dishes and rinsing as you go, instead of stacking dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

B) Cleaners and some elbow grease will always get pots and pans cleaner then the pots and pans cycle on the dishwasher.

C) Good crystal and china should be hand washed and not placed in the dishwasher since the detergents and jostling can damage them quite easily.

D)It can take several hours for dishes to dry when using the no-heat dry option the dishwasher. Try propping the door open to speed the drying process.

Manual for hotpoint how to work it


  • Load the appliance with dirty dishes, placing soiled pots and pans on the lower rack where they will be subjected to the most vigorous cleaning. Glassware and dishwasher-safe plastics should go on the top rack. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before loading them in the Hotpoint appliance, unless the dishes have been sitting for awhile and the food particles have dried.

  • Fill the detergent compartment with your preferred brand of dishwashing detergent, and add glass rinse solution to the rinse reservoir on the inside of the door if your model is equipped with one, then close the door to lock in place.

  • Select the cycle you wish to use and press the button. For pots and pans, use the heavy-duty cycle. Normal wash is fine for dishes and utensils.

  • Save on your energy bill by running the dishwasher only when it is full and by allowing the dishes to air dry instead of using the heat dry function on the appliance.

    I just purchased an LDF6920. It does not dry the dishes. In fact, there is water remaining in the bottom, and all the dishes and drum and door are beaded with water. It suggests putting some sort of...


    First off, there should not be any (visible) water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle is done. If yes, check the drain, installation of drain line, etc.
    Second: The LG is a very energy efficient dishwasher, but in order to acheive this, it does not use a heater to dry the dishes. It relies on the residual heat from the hot water used in the wash cycle, plus a small fan to vent some moist air. It is imparative that you have soft water and use a product such as Jet Dry to assist with drying on the LG dishwashers. Even at that, plastic items (which retain little heat from the water) will not dry well, if at all. Plates, pots, glass, anything with some mass will dry. You may have to adjust the Jet Dry dispenser setting up a bit. If it is set too high, you will get white streaks on your dishes, so then back it off just a bit.

    take the drain hose into a bucket and see if it pumps out.
    if it does check for blockages where the hose goes to.

    most likely is a blocked pump, the pump is assesable from in side the sump, you may have to get rid of all the water before you can see the cover, check instruction book.

    Smell is usually caused by a warm cabinet left too long ( more than aday) with the door closed.

    If your pump has been poor it could be stale water trapped in the sump.

    The washing cycle takes 2 hours to complete


    Make sure the sani cycle is not selected, or pots and pans, also with the dry cycle most will take about 2 hours, if your dishes are not that dirty use the short cycle. Be sure your water is at least 130 F. Run hot water at faucet before starting the machine.

    Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


    Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

    You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

    Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

    Not enough water in tub


    Mderford, on a normal fill, the water should be just above the filter screen. 1.8 gallons first fill, 1.7 on all other fills. Don't think it would be a siphoning problem as you are not having this on the pots/pans. Check the float, make sure it is not sticking. You can check the inlet valve filter screen to see if it is not plugged. Run it through the diagnostics cycle by pushing high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. Some models it's heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. It will run through a self test for about 20 minutes. See if any error codes come up. Fill time should be approx. 1:30 to 1:40 seconds. If any of the aformentioned doesn't turn up any results, then it's possibly a faulty fill valve drive circuit on the control itself...Catriver..post back.
