  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.

    1. 6.Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

    2. 7.Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Water cuming back up through into the sink then going down

Your description is a little unclear but if water is coming up out of the disposal when the dishwasher drains then it was likely improperly installed. The dishwasher's drain hose should be connected to an air gap device that drains the water into the sink above the disposal, not connected directly to the disposal's side port unless the dishwasher has a built-in check valve to prevent the contents of the disposal from siphoning back into the dishwasher.

Dishwasher is not cleaning contents properly

I take it that the dishwasher is going through the full cycle?

So check that the filters and spray arm holes are not blocked up.

If they are clean then check water level inside the appliance by letting it fill to the point it starts to wash then open the door (slowly) you can also tell if the wash pump is working at the same time.

Even if you use all in one tabs I have also found that putting salt and rinse aid in the appliance helps.

Washer not cleaning contents

Either there is little or no water entering the dishwasher. As soon as it starts it's cycle, open the door to see if you can see water on the bottom. If not, then you probably have a defective fill/float switch.

Film left on glasses. doesn't seem to clean any dishes very well, expecially silverware.

Two other possible causes are a high mineral content in the water, or depending on the silverware, they maybe getting etched.

Use a Rince Aid to eliminate this problem. Don't use powder or old dishwasher soap.

The dishes do not rinse properly--despite rinse

run some calcium lime and scale remover throught the unit on an empty wash cycle just to get rid of any build up that may be there.
turn the rinse aid down to about half way.
also check the phosphours content of you washing agent.
there is a lot of factor involved with leaving film on the dishes, it could also be residual soap content that is sticking to your dishes.
reduce the amount of soap a little.does not matter if it is liquid or powder.
once every three months you need to run cleaner through the machine.
last thing but very important make sure the incoming water temp i no lowe rthan 120 degrees.

My dishwasher does not clean. Food particles are left on dishes. What do I do? Is there a filter I need to clean?

The filter is located at the base of the unit.
Usually it has something to grab onto - just pull it straight up and out.
There may be a stainless steel grating and an inner fine filter to remove as well.

Empty contents into the bin, and clean all of these parts in the sink.
Then replace.

Contents covered in salt

Maybe you are not getting enough circulation fro the water circuators. Check for any blockage in the rotating arms where the water comes out. Also the water pump may be clogged or in need of replacement.
