My dishes will not come clean. Everything seems to be working, the water comes in and sprays around etc. but the dishes continue to be dirty. I have even taken it all apart and cleaned it out -- but that did not help. Please help.

    Hi, we have a Kenmore dishwasher 665 13743k601. It has not been getting the dishes very clean for a while and now the motor is extremely loud when I turn it on. We have taken the dishwasher apart and checked the bottom screen, rubber flap and cleaned the bottom-everything looks good. Any ideas?

Open the door when working and check the spray arms are rotating. if not, the jets in the spray arms may be blocked. very fiddly to clear but doable

My spray arms were clogged solid. I removed them, soaked in CLR for 15 minutes, was able to poke through solid crystalline plugs in the spray holes of top and bottom spray arm with a toothpick, and rinsed out all the debris. From then on, I used CLR every two months or so, adding recommended amount at the time of the cycle it recommended on the bottle of CLR.

It is just not cleaning the dishes. Runs - OK


Hi

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...

Dishes are cloudy and have soap residue. Have cleaned upper &lower spray arm often, as good as posible (find holes plugged). water level & temp. seems normal . Water intake screen appears clean


Clean the spray arm jet holes if they are blocked. Check whether you have filled the rinse-aid dispenser.

Check whether arm turns freely when rotated by hand manually.

Dishes on the top rack not cleaning properly


Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.

My dishwasher isn't cleaning my dishes!!!


Look and see if the seals at the back of the dishwasher are worn. They may need to be replaced. The seals are easily removed and new ones replaced. If that isnt it then check to make sure the pump screen is not clogged. Remove the screws to the covers in the bottom of the dishwasher to expose the screen.

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
