Tablets not dissolving
Got an AEG dishwasher (8 month's old). Been using 3-in-1 tablets and until recently no problem. But now when the cycle finishes you often find the semi-dissolved tablet lying in the bottom drawer somewhere and dishes not properly clean. What's going on? Is this a water supply problem
? Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

Washing Machine not dissolving soap tablets2011-11-05 12:41:26I have a Bosch Excel 1200, quite a few years old. Tablets placed in the drawer are not always dissolving and partially remain in the drawer, the same occurs if they are placed in the drum.
The water is heating up - the flow into the drawer seems fine, sometimes pouring a bit of water through after the water has passed through the drawer helps move the tablet on.
The washing machine is now situated in the garage, its insulated but not heated in there. The problem has only just started since it has started getting colder out. Could this be effecting the washing machine ?....

Hotpoint BFI620 not dissolving tablets or cleaning properly2011-11-01 09:55:05Hello,
Our dishwasher is leaving gritty, dirty residue in the bottom of glasses in the top tray. Also, the tablets do not seem to dissolve properly. The filter appears to be clean and it drains well.

Hotpoint aquarius FDW20 not dissolving detergent2011-11-02 07:40:41My dishwasher has been out of action recently due to a split hose which flooded the base and kept fusing the whole house when we tried to use it.
This was repaired on Monday and the everything was fine the first couple of times I used it.
However when i used it on Thursday the detergent tablet did not dissolve. I tried the dishwasher on a different cycle and even opened a new packet of tablets, but still no luck.
Any tips please?...

Dishwasher Tablets - Recomendations2011-11-08 10:04:00Hi,
We will be getting our First ever Dishwasher next Friday (yippee), as we have never had one before, any advice on Dishwaher Tablets?We are getting a slimline as that is all we have room for, but I guess that won't make any difference to what Tablets we use?
Are the Well Known Brands, fininsh , Fairy etc any good or go for Supermarket own?
Thanks In advance
Whats best powder, tablets or liquid for washing machines?2011-11-15 23:17:44I've seen comments that liquid detergents can possibly corrode aluminium parts on washing machines and I'm sure I read that tablets are not good either.. is that true and if so why? I usually use either Ariel powder or the tablets....
Zanussi zdt6244 Problem with tablet not dissolving2011-10-27 20:13:57I have a zanussi zdt6244 integrated dishwasher. lately I have found that the tablet is not fully dissolving during the wash. On opening the door after the wash is completed, the tablet is on the bootom only partially dissolved. This is happening about 3 out of every 4 times. I haven't changed anything recently and am still using the same tablet that worked in the past. Can you suggest anything I can do to prevent this happening. Many thanks....

BEKO Washing Machine2011-11-10 09:34:47Hiya,im new to this,been trying to look on the internet(via google)how to DIY service your washing machine.
Our washing machine is not draining the water after putting it on a normal cycle.I have a couple of times open the door to the washing machine and the water comes gushing out-How annoying
After the water is still in there i have to change the setting on the machine to 'D' for drain, and it does it, but when i put it on a normal washing session it doesn't work.
Especially how to do a self service on a washing machine. Is it a matter of putting the machine on a cycle with no clothes in there with NO tablets, or tablets?

White film taking over...2011-11-10 14:28:37Our Whirlpool dishwasher is about 10 years old.
Since filling the salt container with Tesco's salt which is much larger granules than salt we've used before, we get hideous white limescale deposits on everything including the stainless surfaces of the dishwasher. It has got worse and worse with each wash over the past fortnight. Vinegar removes the deposit proving it is limescale.
Any suggestions on how to remove the Tesco salt so I can try another brand. Also is the ion-exchange resin in the machines water softener likely to be dead after 10 years?
We are using the same washer tablets as before- Waitrose Regular (blue and white tablets with no salt)...
bosch dishwasher problem2011-11-05 23:35:38hi
i have a bosch classix dishwasher which recently has not been emptying properly on all settings.When i have got into the socket at the back,i notice that the plug has been resting on the back of the dishwasher when it has been installed,and it has melted the plug and the back part of the dishwasher.(still switches on though).
Lastly i notice that tablets are being used now instead of salt and rinse aid.Would the latter affect the running of the dishwasher or are tablets now used to replace the salt and rinse aid ?The rinse aid and salt buttons constantly light up when i try a program.
Many thanks 4 any help given.

Zanussi ZDT 6053 not draining correctly2011-10-26 07:33:31Hi,
I have a Zanussi ZDT 6053 from new.
I fitted it 2 years ago.
Always used the little finish washer tablets and rinse aid and wash all 3 filters in the sink once a week. I regularly (6 weekly) run their dishwasher cleaner through on a 70 deg cycle.
never used the salt dispenser as i believe the required substance is in the 3 in 1 tablets we use.
over the last couple of weeks the cleaning has not been up to scratch and noticed a blueish streaky coating on the inside of all metal surfaces. also when the flat plate filter is removed there is standing water in there and the salt dispenser in the base of the inside is also full of standing water.
is there an unblocker that can be run through without getting the machine un installed or if its not a blockage in the outlet pipe could it be something else like a sticking valve ?
Bosch Diswasher Problem2011-11-09 20:59:18My dishwasher is currently not working. The same problem happened around 1 1/2 years ago and 2 people looked at it and could find nothing wrong and it just started working again.
To start off when i switch it on in makes a sound as if something is blocked in it and when i open the door it still makes that sound when its supposed to automatically turn off when you open the door. No sign of the diswasher fixer coming so I left it for a few weeks and just turned it on today to find it working or so I thought. It washed the dishes but now the water is lying in the bottom, I had to turn it off cause it was flooding the floor.
I'm beginning to wonder do certain dishwashing tablets block it or anything because if it started working again i thought maybe whatever was blocking it had rotted away. And i did buy different tablets (Sun) as they were on offer!!
God appliances these days there is always something. First my grill, then the washing machine and now the dishwasher!!!!...
