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

Last modified : Mar 07. 2018

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

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.
2 Use fresh detergent . Do not allow detergent to sit for several hours in a wet dispenser. Clean dispenser when caked detergent is present.
3 Replace detergent if necessary. Use an automatic dishwasher detergent.
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.
