Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Kenmore elite dishwasher I purchased last December 2007. This is the worst dishwasher out of the five diswashers I have owned. It does not clean dishes. Its getting worse, glasses are becoming filmy, food lays in bottom of dishwasher. Food stuck on dishes. I have done the recommened things in the troubleshooting, by having my husband turn up the water pressure, turn up the water heat and nothing works.
this may be the problem
Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.
Caution: Because the dishwasher is connected to both the plumbing system and the electrical system, you must consider both systems when working on this appliance. Before doing any work on the dishwasher, make sure the unit is unplugged or the power to the unit is turned off, and remove the fuse or trip the circuit breaker that controls the circuit at the main entrance panel or at a separate panel. Shut off the water supply to the dishwasher at the shutoff in the basement or crawl space under the kitchen.

The Kenmore Elite has three washing arms. One on the
bottom sprays water up. The middle arm sprays water up and down and the
one on top sprays water down.
Clean Front" feature means that the controls (touchpad type) are on top of the door, rather than on the front. I'll admit this $100 extra was a bit of vanity, but it does make the dishwasher look more modern and makes the front easier to keep clean.
