Solutions to Common Dishwashing Problems
(continued)
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 the Cool 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 when
the dishwasher
goes into 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.)
Make sure door is closed and latched.
