Dishwasher Problems

Postby Panda Girl » Sat Jan 17, 2009 8:54 pm

Hi. I have a Zanussi dishwasher and just lately, the detergent tablet is not disolving completely during the cycle. When it is finished, I often find a half disolved tablet sitting in the bottom of the washer. Has anyone got any suggestions what is causing this. I am using finish tablets so wouldn't have thought it would be a problem with them. This has been happening for a few days now. Thanks for your help.

Panda Girl,
Pull out the dishwasher and make sure the pipes are not kinked. Open the door part way through the wash cycle and make sure the water is getting hot. Clean the micromesh filter.

Thank you. Have checked the pipes and they seem ok. Will check the water later when I do the washing. :D
