Solutions to Common Dishwashing Problems

Before calling for service, review this list. It
may save you both time and expense. This
list includes common experiences that are
not the result of defective workmanship or
material in your dishwasher.
Food Soils Left on Dishes
• Choose another cycle for longer washing
time.
• Check rack loading section for proper
loading—avoid nesting items.
• Home water pressure may be too low—
should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch
(psi).
• Check incoming water temperature. It
should be at least 120°F (49°C). (See
Factors Affecting Performance.)
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard
water, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. (See Detergent Chart.)
• Use fresh detergent.
• Check to make sure funnel in top rack is not
blocked.
• Make sure items are not blocking the spray
arms, preventing them from rotating.
Dishes not Dry
• Select heat dry option.
• Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled.
• Increase the amount of rinse aid. (See Rinse
Aid.)
• Check the incoming water temperature. Be
sure it is at least 120°F (49°C).
• Check for proper loading—avoid nesting
items.
• Plastic items may need to be towel dried.

water.

loose when moving racks in and out. Move
racks in and out slowly.
• Make sure tall glasses and stemware will
clear top of tub when rack is pushed in.
