Customer Question

I Would Like To Know Why This Dishwasher Doesn't Clean Very Well At All?
Submitted: 4 years ago via HelpOwl.
Category: Appliance
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Thanks for the question.

Please send me the make and model number so I can assist you better

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I'm sorry I thought you already had it. It is a piece of junk Electrolux model E1DW6105GS1 that I bought about a year ago. It has never cleaned very well from the beginning. Most everything has to be practically cleaned before it goes in. I have followed all mfg. tips and recommendations to no success.
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
  • Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.

  • Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

  • Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.

  • Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.

  • Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.

  • Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

  • Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles
