Re: not sure about dishwashers
It depends on the manufacturer if it is a frigidaire the filter is located in the hose that goes from the pump to the tub. if it is a whirlpool then there is a filter that you can remove directly in the front of the pump. Kenmore is a name only it has other companies make the machine for them.I hope this info helps

Let's make sure we're in the right category. Is this a clothes washing machine or a dishwasher? If a clothes washing machine, there should be a hose inlet for the hot water and another for the cold water. The fittings will be the same, but one should have a C or "Cold" stamped or labeled next to it and the Hot an H or "Hot" next to it. Unless the machine is really old or maybe not from this country, the hose fittings should be standard.
If you're referring to a dishwasher, then there will only be one inlet for a hot water line. The fitting is probably a 3/8" MIP and will require a 3/8" MIP line. There a special dishwasher installation kits that come with the hose and common fittings which might be your best bet.
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Start by running a bottle of dishwasher magic through it and make sure the drain line is clear.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
I'm guessing you use fabric softer....Get some finish dishwashing powder and put a wash on with high water level with no cloths in it. let it do it's normal wash but before it drains any water out, pause the wash let it soak over night. next day unpause it and let it finish. Repeat if needed and do the same thing again with out any dishwashing powder in it to make sure it rinses all the soap out.
The black sludge is cause by using fabric softener. The costic in the finish powder will eat in to the sludge and soften it. If its really baked on it my need to soak for longer, more powder or it may need to be stripper and cleaned.
The electronic control panel has gotten wet and needs to be replaced (about $200 for parts plus about $200 for service call/labor) I just had mine replaced about 10 month ago, stopped using the type of dishwasher soap I had based on Maytag Service staff recommendation, stopped using hot wash to prevent high condensation at the door and now its broken again and in need of a new control panel again. You may be money ahead to go buy a new dishwasher that does not have the plastic encased control panel at the top. My understanding is the control panels are poorly engineered and made for most dishwasher manufactures by one of the mega electronic/appliance companies.
Clean out the filter really well, then replace it. This should reset the dishwasher. If it does it again when you try to run the dishwasher. Take the filter out and re-seat it. Some times it's not sitting exactly right. Good luck and I hope that helps.
