Dishwasher doesn't dispense soap

Issue description:

Why doesn't the dishwasher pick up the detergent from the drawer?

Drawer - detergent drawer. Powder, gel or special detergent tablet is placed in it. The cuvette most often has a hinged or retractable design and is located on the inside of the dishwasher lid.

Dishwasher tablets are considered an ideal option for washing dishes and safety of the machine. These are “three in one” products, they contain salt, rinse aid and the actual detergent. Such a tablet should be consumed completely in one wash cycle.

If, at the end of the wash cycle, you find that the detergent remains dry in the cuvette or slightly damp, it means that there is some kind of malfunction or a serious breakdown of the dishwasher.

Dishwasher doesn't dispense soap


It is logical to assume that if the powder, tablet or gel did not get into the machine, then the compartment for the detergents did not open.

Why the dishwasher does not take the detergent. you put more dishes in your dishwasher than it should be

is there any plate preventing the detergent from dropping out

the cuvette itself is deformed

All this could cause the tablet to remain in its place.

Also try to remember if the cuvette was wet before placing the tablet, gel or powder. If there was, then the detergent could simply stick.

When you first use a specific detergent, it may not dissolve due to the fact that it simply does not fit your dishwasher! Dishwasher manufacturers usually indicate the recommended detergent for use in the instructions for it. Use it whenever possible.

Situations where water does not drain out of the dishwasher are often caused by improper use. Sometimes the reason is the wrong connection of the dishwasher or the breakdown of individual components. If the filter is clogged or the hose is bent, it is easy to fix the problem yourself. Only a master can fix a breakdown of a part or a system unit.
