SOURCE: Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

SOURCE: dishwasher that leaves dishes dirty

Your drain could be blocked, remove the drain from the trap below the sink and try running the unit on drain, into a bucket. Also check the connection at the trap to ensure it is free from blockage

Most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is mounted a condensator. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken, it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.

SOURCE: glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

I had the same problem I own a Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Diverter motor needs to be replaced. The diverter motor is connected to a plate that controls the flow of water to each washer arm. When the plate moves it has holes that align to the proper tube that supplies water to a washer arm. When the diverter motor is broken it is unable to rotate and cannot direct flow of water. When this happens water will only be able to come out of one spray arm in my case the back sprayer or turbo wash. The diverter motor is located under the dish washer and the diverter plate is located under the bottom sprayer arm.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, purchased in 2000, it is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack, just happened all the sudden.


You should check to make sure that the lower sprayer is extending to spray the bottom of the top rack and that water is being pumped up to the top sprayer. You will need to take the dishwaher out of the cabinet to test.

The dishes on the topshelf come out dirty


Check to verify that your top water sprayer is operating. It could either be blocked prohibiting movement or not spraying at all. Usually this is a problem with washer overloading. You may want to scale back on how many dishes you put in.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

It is filling and running but the water is not


Could be two different things -- either the pump is not moving water through the sprayer arm, or the sprayer arm isn't free to spin around.
I've fixed one of each in the past year, so either is reasonable.

First, check the easy one -- the sprayer arm.
Open the dishwasher and pull the bottom tray forward so you can reach the sprayer arm.
Reach in and try to spin it around by hand. It should move freely, and if you flick it around, it should spin a full turn around before stopping.
If it's unable to move at all, then look for something stuck like a fork or plastic bag.
If it moves, but very quickly stops spinning, it might be a foreign object or it might need a new sprayer arm assembly. The one I got this year was $38 including shipping.

If the sprayer arm is free and easy to move, then check the water pump:
Start the dishwasher and listen. When it's done filling and sounds like the wash cycle, quickly unlock and open the door.
It shouldn't spray water in your face, but there should be lots of water dripping from the racks and the top (and the dishes, if it's loaded when you do this test!)

If not, then the problem is either a failed main pump or a blocked pump, and the repair will be a bit more money and a lot more time.

If this helps, be sure to click the thumbs-up to tell me so!
