ProblemWhat to do
Dishwasher doesn’t start.Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Remove any other appliances sharing the same circuit with the dishwasher.
Water does not drain from dishwasher.Check the drain hose. Check the coarse filter.
Suds in the dishwasher.Use only specific dishwasher detergent to avoid suds. If this occurs, open the dishwasher door and let the suds evaporate. Add 1 gallon of cold water to the interior and close the door. Select the RAPID program with no dishes loaded and allow the dishwasher to drain the water. Repeat if necessary.
Stained interior.Make sure that the detergent used is one without colourant.
White film on interior surface.To clean the interior, use a damp sponge with an appropriate dishwasher descaler and wear rubber gloves. Never use any other cleaner than those specifically for dishwashers for the risk of foaming or suds.
There are rust stains on the cutlery.Avoid washing these items in the dishwasher and look for dishwasher-safe replacements in the future.
Knocking noise in the wash cabinet.Interrupt the program and rearrange the items which are obstructing the spray arm.
Rattling noise in the wash cabinet.Interrupt the program and rearrange the items of crockery.
Knocking noise in the water pipes.This has no effect on the dishwasher performance but if in doubt, contact a suitably qualified plumber.
The dishes are not clean.See the section on loading the dishwasher baskets for instructions.
Cloudiness on glassware.Use less detergent if you have soft water and select the RAPID program to wash glassware and get them clean.
Black or grey marks on dishes.Use a mild abrasive cleaner to eliminate those marks.
Detergent left in the dispenser.Re-load the dishes properly.
The dishes are not drying.Load the dishwasher as suggested in the relevant instructions.
