Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher
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...
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.

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...
