My dishwasher has suddenly developed a problem. It leave dried soap everywhere and doesn’t clean the dishes. The dishes do get wet but it seems as if there is not enough water for the soap or that the water doesn’t get to the top shelf. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this problem might and how much it might cost to get it fixed? Do you think we could fix it ourselves? Any help would be appreciated.
Have you checked the rotating arm to ensure that all the water oultet holes are clear and not blocked up – this is a very common cause to exactly the problem you have highlighted. If they are blocked them simply clear them out – this allows the water being sprayed against the dishes to do it job properly. Another cause of this problem if the spray arms are not blocked is a blocked water filter feeding the pump – this is a job for a service person not a home owner.
