Why do food and grease stains remain on dishes in the dishwasher?
If you see grease and food stains on your dishes after finishing the dishwasher, instead of being greedy and cursing your valuable dishwasher, first get acquainted with the cause and second with the solution.
If the tea stains on the dishes are dry, these stains are usually not removed in the dishwasher, and if water stains are seen on the dishes, it is probably due to not using salt or polishing liquid that you need to increase the degree of that.
If the machine gives an alarm during operation and appears on the ERROR display, the machine is half-finished and it is perfectly normal for the dishes to be clean or not dry, as the machine did not finish the operation.

The next solution to this problem is to choose the program that fits the dishes. To solve the problem of grease and food stains remaining on the dishes, the amount of powder should be adequate for the program.
Cleaning the filters of the device after each wash is also one of our recommendations to solve these kinds of problems.

The reason for not dissolving tablets and powder in the dishwasher
What causes dishwasher tablets not to dissolve? Here are some reasons why a dishwasher (tablet or powder) did not use in the dishwasher.
- The detergent door dispenser does not open: After about 20 minutes from the start, the detergent door opens automatically. If the door does not open during operation, you should notify the professional to repair the dishwasher.
- Detergent quality: The machine may be healthy but the tablet or powder which is used could not dissolve in water. To solve this problem, change your detergent. Make sure that the tablet or powder has not expired and note that the amount of powder used, depends on the program.
- Arrangement of dishes: Containers that are placed on the ground floor – the left half (front row) are probably placed in such a way as to prevent the opening of the powder door. To examine is this is your problem, do not put a container in the mentioned part and turn on the device.

The reason for not draining the water
When the dishwasher does not drain the water, it gives an OE message in such cases. Follow us to resolve this message.
To fix the error, be sure to check that the filter and pelvis are clean. After each wash, the filter and pelvis should be cleaned with hot water, detergent, and brush.
The drain hose must be raised to the height of the device (minimum 77 cm and maximum one meter) and then connected to the sewer. So check the height of the drain hose.
Check where the water is draining. The device may be intact but the area where the water is to be drained is blocked.
Your dishwasher may have switched off during operation and the work may not have been completed and the water may not have drained.
The dishes do not dry in the dishwasher
Sometimes after the dishwashing is done, you feel that the dishwasher has not dried your dishes. Failure of dishes to dry is one of the signs that the bleach is gone. Be sure to check that the bleach tank has bleach and use it for washing.
Normally, some water remains in the bottom of the glasses and cups, and this does not mean that the dishes in the machine did not dry.
If the dishwasher errors and the machine stops working, that’s why the dryer has not reached the drying stage, then the dishes have not dried.
After finishing the work, open the lid of the device so that water vapor can some out the device.
Place the dishes with the bottom of the bowl at an angle and also keep in mind that dishes do not dry out in Quick and Prewash applications.
Finally, if you have used bleach and the dishes are completely wet (except for Quick and Prewash programs), the dishwasher needs to be repaired and it is time to notify its expert technician.
