Dishes not coming out clean

We are having problems with the dishes not coming out clean, although it happens intermittently--about 1 out of every 2 or 3 times. It does not seem to matter which cycle I use or what temperature the water is. Sometimes the detergent dispenser hasn't opened and the tablet remains undissolved. Most of the time, though, this doesn't happen. I have tried running it with vinegar, to no avail. My husband did find a cherry pit in the filter, and we thought this might be the problem, but the problem persists even after removing it. Some of the dishes will come out dry, others very wet, some clean, others as though the spray never touched them. We are very perplexed...

Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

My dishwasher doesn't rinse and smoke comes out although I have checked the pipes if blocked, cleaned the dirt etc. it uses the water to wash but all dishes comes out soapy


Seems like two separate problems.

1.) Are you sure it is SMOKE and not steam?
2.) I would first verify the quality of your water and how your softener is working. I'd look for a plugged venturi or a salt bridge in the tank. Look online for the manual. With a wrench and a little know-how it's an easy job.
3.) If you water is good, and you are SURE it is smoke, then you will only be able to call an appliance technician. This unit looks new so it should still be under warranty.

Dishes do not clean, although the water is hot and the soap dispenses. Dishes and glasses have a cloudy residue at times, and dishes sometimes have small food particles baked onto the surfaces.


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Hello

I have used Vinegar myself.
just placed a large cup full in the top rack and ran it through with no dishes in the dish washer.
and once the dishwasher was clean we used a small amount of vinegar to clean the stainless steel bowls and silverware and glass.

I have also used this product:
http://www.reliableparts.com/product/Glisten-Dishwasher-Cleaner-1476390/Dishwasher-Accessories-461418
and it also worked..... although there are restrictions ( no stainless steel dishwasher tubs ).

Dish washer 3 1/2 yrs old making a growling/vibrating sound.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Kenmore Dishwasher Not Sanitizing


You don't need an additive.
The sanitized LED itself is probably out.
It will not light up if the sensor doesn't sense that the water has reached 155 F. If the dishes are getting clean, I assume the heater is working properly. You could have a failed sensor, but you would usually notice longer than normal wash times and the dishwasher getting hotter than usual.
Alternately press heat dry and hi temp scrub 4 times. This puts washer into diagnostic mode. The first thing that happens is all the LED's light up. If it lights up then it is ok and the problem is somewhere else.
If these instructions don't apply to your machine, please post the complete model number from the decal just inside the front of the tub and I will look it up for you.
