I wish you had asked for clarification before responding.
I use Cascade Complete pods, pre-filled and self contained. I have already tried switching to the Finnish product and the problem became much worse///I ultimately switched back.
I have tried to clean washer both with Afresh and with simple white vinegar. While the machine looks clean the problem continues. It also appears to be getting worse.
Lastly, in the event that the "motor is going out" is there a way to determine that prior to calling the repairman? I could then avoid two visits/labor charges and just purchase a new one with installation costs. And, just in case, I asked if you could direct me in how to clean under the unit prior to it's removal....??
You did not address that part at all.
Granted, I should have specified that I used the "pods" but read your answer again. I am disappointed in a $50 answer that is a referral to a $2 product explain as if your customer were an 8 year old. And, the part that may be time consuming for you to answer, is just ignored.
My family has used this service before with much more informative results. Perhaps I just caught you after a long day....?
