Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

1 Answer

Poor washability kenmoore quitguard model 587.1515

The bottom rotor rotates but top rotor does not....leaves a soapy film and soap residue all over everthing. I have checked inlet water supply and drain tube and seem to be ok. I do not see how the top rotor could ever work as the water supply is fed up the side and by gravity into the rotor.

You need to take the lower spray arm off and take part of the motor apart. there are 4 screws holding the filter on and then 1 or 2 more screws down in the motor holding other plastic pieces on. once you get into the motor you will need to clean out any debris. that should fix your problem.

    water is not fed by gravity. the motor pushes the water up. something is clogged up not allowing the water to go through.
    you need to take it apart and clean the motor out.

Dishes not getting clean


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.
