There is a lot of foam in my dishwasher

  1. Check if you have filled wrong i.e. hand detergent in the rinse aid container.
    If you have filled in the wrong agent, try with opening the rinse aid lid and rinse it off with a little water. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to book a service engineer to disassemble the machine and clean the container or replace the dispenser.

  2. Try using a different brand of rinse aid as some detergents can foam a lot.

  3. Try using another brand of detergent. Some detergents can foam a lot when flushed around the machine during washing.

  4. Avoid that water in the dishwasher is too soft. Be sure not to set the water softener level too high while using “All-in-One” tablets with softeners added.

  5. Do not wash the dish in hand detergent before putting it in the dishwasher.
    a) The use of the hand dish soap create foam in the dishwasher. It is not suitable for dishwasher.
    b) If the dishes are already clean and in the absence of dirt & grease, the dishwasher detergent (especially the tablet “All-in-One” ) create foam.
  6. When refilling the rinse aid container, do not spill it. Spilt rinse aid can foam a lot when the program starts flushing in cold water. (rinse aid can foam in cold water)

  7. Check if the machine is heating. Start an intensive program and check if the dishes are warm when the program is finished. If the machine does not heat, it needs to be checked by a service engineer.

  8. Check if the rinse aid container is leaking. If the machine has suddenly started using all of the rinse aid in few dishes or there is a bluish line under the container, it needs to be checked by a service engineer.

  9. Contact Authorized Service Centre
    If the above suggestion did not solve the problem, we recommend that you book a visit by a service engineer.
