Solutions to Common Dishwash
(continued)
ing Problems
Dishware
Stained
or Discolored
• Tea and coffee can stain cups. Remove the
stains by hand washing
in a solution
of 1/2
cup (120 ml) bleach and one quart (1 L) of
warm water. Rinse thoroughly.
Iron deposits
in water can cause a yellow or
brown film. A special filter installed in the
water supply line will correct this problem.
(See Removing
Spots and Film.)
• Aluminum
utensils can leave gray/black
marks when they rub against other items.
Load properly.
Certain high acid foods can cause
discoloration
of stainless
steel and plastics
if allowed to sit for a long period. Use the
Rinse & Hold cycle or rinse by hand if not
operating
dishwasher
at once.
Mixing stainless
steel and silver utensils in
silverware
basket can cause pitting of the
stainless
steel blades. Avoid mixing
stainless
steel and silver.
Etching
Using too much detergent
in soft or softened
water causes this film that cannot be
removed.
• Adjust the amount of detergent
based on the
water hardness.
(Check Detergent
Chart.)
Lower the water temperature.
Use no heat dry option.
Detergent Left in Cups
Detergent
may be old. Discard and use
fresh detergent.
Be sure water action can reach the
dispenser.
Check to see if cycle has been completed.
Make sure items do not prevent the
detergent
dispenser
from opening.
Dishwasher
Leaks
• Use only fresh detergent
designed for
automatic
dishwashers.
Measure detergent
carefully. Try a different brand.
• Spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead
to overflowing.
Wipe up any spills with a
damp cloth.
• Check to see that dishwasher
is level.
(See Installation
Instructions.)
Normal Sounds You Will Hear
• Normal sounds include water fill, water
circulation
and motor sounds.
• There is a noticeable
change in sound
when the wash action switches
between the
lower and middle spray arm. This is normal
since each spray arm has its own sound.
It is normal for dishwasher
to pause (no
sound) when the wash action is switching
between the lower and middle spray arms.
Water in Bottom of Tub
• Water left in bottom of tub after cycle is
complete
is not normal. If water remains in
the bottom of the tub, dishwasher
may not
be draining properly. (See Dishwasher
Does
Not Drain Properly.)
Vapor at Vent
• Water vapor escapes from the vent during
the drying part of cycle. This is normal.
Dishwasher
Won't Run
• Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped or if
a fuse is blown.
• Make sure water supply is turned on.
• Check to see if cycle is set correctly.
(See Operating
Instructions.)
Is dishwasher
set for delay start option?
Make sure door is closed and latched.
