Dishwasher problem, still soap

7 posts in this topic

Dishwasher FDB636GFR4, This thing will seem to work like it should when started, when I go in, it is on the final rinse cycle and soap has not all dissolved. Just stops, like it is done. I rinse the dishes before I put them in because I am mostly by myself and don't run it for a few days. I have read somewhere that I should not use soap pucks, which I did try once. Don't know if that would make a difference. Dishes sometimes have a grit like substance on them also. What can I do?

I am posting this for my mom, since I found this website for my fridge. She brought up her dishwasher and thought you might be able to help.

Possible not enough water in the dishwasher to dissolve the soap and clean the dishes,  make sure there is enough in there after it has filled to reach the element, if not the fill valve might be going bad.  Also need about 140 degrees going in to make sure the unit cleans ok, but check that water level .

Well, she checked and sure enough not filling to the element. Where is the fill valve located and what do I need to install it?

Reference #3 in this drawing, behind the bottom toe panels....might want to be sure there is good water flow to this valve before replacing it also...
