Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15933 Built-in Dishwasher
My Kenmore Elite Model 15933 dishwasher has gradually been getting worse at cleaning the dishes. It is 5 1/2 years old. When new, we didn't even have to rinse the dishes. Now it is a struggle to get one load completely clean after rinsing. We checked the upper spray arm and it appears to be clean, nothing on the mesh screen below the lower arm, no standing water, just soap still in the dispenser, and a white filmy residue on everything in the top rack. Of course this came to a head after Thanksgiving dinner when I had loads of dishes to wash. I had to rewash everything by hand. I ran a quick wash load with only glasses in the top rack to see if I could see anything, opened the door several times, and tried to see if water was getting to the top rack, but nothing different. Could use some help. This is not the only Kenmore Elite problem we have had - unfortunately we own many Kenmore Elite products and they have all failed.
Brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.

There is a new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it works great and my dishes look fantastic. they use to look dirty with a white film on them. after the first load when i hooked up the dishwasher filter my dishes looked brand new. it is affordable and works everytime. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
