This is a 5 step process.
1 Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket (Pop off 'keepers' at the ends of the slidding shelf supports).
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhear conduit. There is one screw at the back and one at the top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate the whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of the centre post. It can be taken apart to clean.
4.Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift the whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen (Flat blade screwdriver around the edge) and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at the front left (Under center assembly just removed). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter & filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc up. Clean thoroughly. Run a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out, to clean the inside.
Reassemble.

We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher model number KUDK03CTSS3. It's only about 3 years old, but the dishes on the top rack do not get clean. We thought maybe it was water not coming out the top, or food stuck...


had a simular problem, used product called dishwasher magic to clean it well and that took care of it. I got it @ walmart in the diswasher detergent area. Also be sure you are loading according to the manual. I now use lemi shine in every load for spot free clean dishes and put the dishwasher magic in it about every few months to keep it from getting build up. If you have a manual they have directions to take them apart for cleaning and I have had to that before to. Just remember how to get it back together. That's all I have but I'm not a repair person I'm a nurse.

Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.

Try cleaning the water jet openings on the propellar inside of the dishwasher. These small openings get clogged with food

Dishes are not getting clean, detergent just runs down the door used tablets they worked until lately. The door would open but the tablet would not disolve. Now I use liquid but it just runs down the door...


Quickest way to ruin a good dishwasher is to use tablets. They have times when they don't brake down in the water like they were designed. Chance are that you used the tablets with the thin film package, this thin film gets caught in the pump and shut down water circulation. Have a qualified tech pull motor assembly apart for you and clean.

Dishes still dirty after wash cycle


It would be real helpful to have you provide the manufacterer and model number to get more specific with solution.
-Have you changes dishwasher soap powder recently? Buy a box of Electrosol or Cascade and see what happens. The ultracheep versions actually have caused cleaning problems, especilly in water-conserving dishwashers.
-Under the lower rack is the sump area with a filter that can be removed, usaully by removing several screws. Pull that filter, rinse is as best you can. Inspect under where the filter was and remove all debris. Watch out for broken glass that is found in most well used diswashers, it is hard to see and sharp! Reasemble the filter.
-If problems continue and if this diswasher is several years old, plan on getting the wash pump motor replaced (or replace the diswasher with a name brand, Energy Star model.) Good Luck!
Please update me with what you found. OK?

Dirty dishes on lower rack


Please confirm that you own an LG LDF7811 dishwasher and it is not cleaning properly.
-Are you getting any error codes displayed? -Did you remove the mesh filter and clean any debris beneath it plus rinse out the filter itself?
-Are you using a name brand diswashing powder? Avoid ultra-cheap detergent, especially in water-conserving units like the LG 7811. Never use DW gel or tablets in any dishwasher.
-Do not over rinse the dishes before placing them in the DW. The food granules actually are used to clean all the dishes before being rinsed away.
Please try these suggestions and reply to this message with what worked best and if the problem continues. Good Luck!
