KevinWhiteJA :

how old is it ?


the appliance at least 5 years.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK can run it on hot cycle with the cleaner...after this unplug the dishwasher and pull it out and clean the drain hose/pump assembly completely...also clean the water inlet valve and inlet hose...after this lay it on its side by around 45 degrees so that if there is any excess water left inside it drains completely

KevinWhiteJA :

let me know how it goes

Customer: The tablet seems to stay in the draw and not drop down as it should do,even though the door opens,it is as if it is not opening on time to release the tablet,which is why it stays where it is
