Is Your Dishwasher Pod Not Dissolving? Unravel the Mystery Here!

Do you find yourself frequently discovering that your dishwasher pod is not dissolving? This can be a frustrating and time-consuming issue to deal with.

There are several reasons why your dishwasher pod may not be dissolving.

Dishwasher pods dissolve best in water temperatures ranging from 125-140 degrees Fahrenheit (51.6C – 60C). Water temperatures outside of this range may not dissolve the detergent capsule’s water-soluble film.

Low Water Temperature

The spray arms in your dishwasher need to be clear of any blockages to ensure spray water can reach all dirty dishes, including the detergent pod. If the spray arms are clogged with particles or debris, the dishwasher pod may not dissolve correctly.

Blocked or Clogged Spray Arms

One potential cause may be a faulty circulation pump. This component helps to distribute water throughout the machine during a cycle and if it’s not working, your dishwasher won’t function correctly.

Faulty Circulation Pump

The inlet valve is responsible for allowing water to enter the dishwasher during a cleaning cycle. When it fails, there won’t be enough water in the dishwasher for the pods to dissolve.

Faulty Inlet Valve

If your dishwasher is overloaded, there may not be enough space for water to reach the detergent pod, which can prevent it from dissolving.

Overloaded Dishwasher

If the detergent dispenser is not functioning correctly, the pod may not dissolve. Check the dispenser for any visible damage or blockages.
