Can you run a hot cycle on the dishwasher and during the wash (20 mins) open the door to see if the appliance is heating.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
dishwasher is heating water, it appeared to be running well which it does sometimes one out five washes now that I have opened it all seems to have stopped.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 12 months ago.

So the water is at the correct level and is heating....

If it stops when you open it to check it, just push the start button for it to carry on washing.

How long is it since you did a cleaning cycle?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
There is no stop start button stays on when you open, did come back on itself and ended with constant beep. Haven't done a cleaning cycle as not sure what programme that would be but have used and run through a cleaning product.

Thanks for the response...

Cleaning should always be done at 65 degs or 70 degs if your appliance has the facility to go that high. That is always the intensive wash (the one with images of pans).

Another benefit will be if you remove the spray arms or rotors and clean them out with hot water and detergent.. poke through any holes that are blocked with debris or food.
