Hi



If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a whirlpool gold quiet three.It has never been used I do not have the instruction manuel. help with starting please


Hello.
If you've just installed a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher, consider yourself truly liberated from the drudgery of standing at the sink washing plate after plate and saucepan after saucepan. You'll find it much easier to keep the kitchen clean as your dirty dishes are hidden away in your new appliance and all you have to do is wipe down the counter tops and switch the dishwasher on when it's full. However, to get the maximum benefit from your new piece of equipment, it's important to use it correctly.

Instructions
MATERIALS NEEDED WHEN OPERATING.
* Dishwasher detergent
* Dishwasher rinse aid
Preparation of Dishes
1 Scrape leftover food off the dishes and make sure no other hard objects such as small bones or toothpicks remain on them.
2 Remove sticky labels from any newly bought food containers you are washing for the first time.
3 Make sure any leftover coffee, tea, soda or wine has been poured out of cups, mugs and glasses.
Loading the Dishwasher
1 Place cups, mugs and glasses in the top rack with the open ends pointing downwards. Cups and mugs should go along the left and right outside edges, with glasses beside them. Position small plates and saucers in holders along the center of the rack running from back to front.
2 Place larger plates and bowls in the bottom rack, which is also where casserole dishes and saucepans should be washed. Avoid overlapping bowls and plates, because it is important every surface is open to the water directed around the dishwasher's interior during the program.
3 Create a flat surface on which to lay saucepans and larger dishes by collapsing some of the plate holders on the bottom rack, if your model dishwasher allows. Lay them open-end down to allow the water to be directed around their interiors.
4 Position dirty saucepans at the rear of the bottom rack with the open end facing the back of the machine's interior, if your machine has a "PowerScour" facility.
5 Place silverware in the silverware basket with sharp items pointing downwards. Alternate the direction in which you load spoons to prevent them "nesting" together, which stops water reaching every surface.
Detergent and Rinse Aid
* 1

Place detergent in the dispenser just when you intend to run the wash cycle, not before. If you're using standard powder or liquid detergent, be guided by the hard-water and soft-water indicators. These are lines marked in the side of the dispenser. In areas with soft water, fill to the soft water line and in hard-water areas fill to the hard water line. If you prefer individual tablets, follow the manufacturer's instructions.
2 Add rinse aid immediately when the rinse aid indicator reaches the "add" level. Turn the cap on the rinse aid dispenser to "refill" and lift it away from the dishwasher. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator reaches the "full" mark and replace the lid. Make sure the lid is tightly in place.
3 Adjust to a higher setting on the arrow adjuster, located inside the dispenser, if you feel more rinse aid is needed during a wash cycle. You can do this by inserting a flat-blade screwdriver into the center of the adjuster.
Starting the Wash
* 1 Check that the spray arms can rotate freely before closing up the dishwasher.
2 Turn on the hot faucet at the sink closest to the dishwasher and let the water run until it is hot.
3 Close the door firmly and select the wash cycle you wish to use. Depending on which model you are using, you may wish to activate additional options during the cycle such as "Power Scour." These options should also be selected at this stage.

Thanks.

Glass plates have "splashed" looking


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

Why do my dishes no longer seem to get clean? The glasses are spotty and foggy, small bits of food left on the plates, etc. They not completely dirty as they were when I put in to wash, but they're...


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishes not cleaned


When ever I hear of a dishwasher "suddenly" not cleaning properly, with spots on the glassware and soap not dissolving:

-If the spots are white patches, you can suspect the DW detergent powder. Go buy a name brand of detergent powder and I bet you will see a dramatic improvement. You may need to run a cycle or two with white vinegar added (up to two cups added after the DW starts, fills and begins to wash.)

-If the spots are a film / slime, you should suspect that the heating element. For the dW to be effective cleaning and rinsing clear,the DW needs to raise the water temp during the ~wash~ cycle (after the detergent dispenser has magically opened. After the heating element has been replaced, you will see an immediate improvement.

-If you had reported food debris sticking to dishes, (which you didn't), the first thing to do is clear the holes in the wash arms, then open the sump area , remove the filter assembly and inspect closely with a flashlight to locate blocking debris. (watch out for broken glass!) Inspect the impeller and make sure it is not damaged. If after assembly, the cleaning is still poor, it is time to replace the wash pump / motor assembly.

Good Luck! Ask more questions as needed!

Soap foam left after dishes are washes. can't dry properly. and always has soapy water left in it and on the washed plates.


Try adding some liquid fabric softener to your dishwasher. This will reduce the foaming. Also make sure there is rinse agent in the proper dispenser, this will reduce the soap sticking to the dishes. Finally, reduce the amount of dishwasher powder or liquid you put in for each wash. If water remains in the bottom of the dishwasher, check if there is a filter or drain hose clogged. Is the dishwasher drain hose connected an undersink garbage disposer? If yes, make sure it is run periodically so it does not clog up.
