Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17362 / 17364 / 17369 Built-in Dishwasher
I have used different types of dishwashing soap and a lot of the times the geltab etc will not come out of the holder. I have to wash the dishes 2 or 3 times to get the soap out of the container.
I work in a hospital and have seen this problem with our scope washers (a very sophisticated dishwasher with lots of safety features) and it turned out to be a faulty pump motor. Some pumps have black ceramic magnet in them and if it cracks it will breakdown and mix in with wash water creating a black smudge on everything with bits. Just as you described. Unfortunately, I have never taken a part a dishwasher motor so I don't know if it's the same type of motor.

You need to replace the dispenser or possibly the wax motor on the dispenser. I would be more than happy to help you. But need to know the brand an model # so I can make sure that I give you the proper advise.

SOURCE: Have the Kenmore Limited Edition
check the wash arms to see if food has not cloged the holes stopping water getting through
if these are clean the machine may not have enough water entering machine
also check how you stack machine

Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only. Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete" or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting. All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6. Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade) Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month. Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack. Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working. Good luck.
