Why doesn't a Multi-tablet dissolve in my dishwasher?

Last Update date : 2017.09.12

If the Multi-tablet is not dissolving in the dishwasher, the tablet dispenser may be stuck. Follow the steps below:


Step 1: This may happen due to left over detergent residue. To resolve this issue, please clean the dispenser box with a brush and wipe off any sticky residue leftover on the tablet dispenser.


Step 2: Use fresh detergent. Do not allow detergent to sit for several hours in a wet dispenser. Clean dispenser when caked detergent is present.

Step 3: Replace detergent if necessary. Use an automatic dishwasher detergent.


Step 4: Check the position of the dishware. Rearrange the dishes so they do not interfere with the detergent dispenser’s cover operation.



● Use dishwasher detergent only. Regular detergent produces too much foam, which may decrease the dishwasher’s performance or cause it to malfunction.


● It is recommended to use powder or gel type dishwasher detergent.
