Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS02FRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishes not coming clean

Just moved into a house that has a Kitchenaid dishwasher (model KUDS02FRSS). It seems to run fine but the dishes are not getting clean. Also the stainless interior and some parts of the trays look coated with detergent. Is there somewhere that I can download the user guide to understand how to clean this appliance thoroughly? Any other ideas around what I should check? Is there some way to determine whether the arms are rotating the way they should?

Please help - Thanks

The problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that leave those spots. It is very affordable and even has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look with this product.

Dishes have residue after complete cycle


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

We have an older KitchenAid dishwasher (Model e) that cleans dishes on the lower rack just fine but not the ones on top. Anyone have any ideas why or fixes?


Be sure you are not blocking the spray arm for the top rack. If your dishwasher has a telescoping spray arm in the botton center that retracts when the dishwasher is off, be careful about covering it with the dishes

Whte residue left on glassware and dishes


use a dishwashing cleaning agent in the machine. or some thing the has a grease cutting agent.run this on an empty cycle.
there are times residue grease and oils can accumulate down in the sump area where the water sits and can cause film on the dishes.
this could also be some lime or scale build up for that you can use some C.L.R or any kind of lime and scale remover to clean your machine.
make sure tht that this is done on an empty dishwasher

Gritty film left on almost all dishes, rinse aid level seems to always remain at full, but apparently not rinsing well.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

Upper rack is not cleaning. Greasy dishes on top seem that dishes are not being washed. Seems the upper water turning dispenser is not working, Bottom rack seems ok. I guess I only have half a dish washer...


Check the upper arm for free spinning, then remove the arm and check that the seam between the upper and lower halves has not split somewhere. Also check all the small holes for debris plugging. Run the machine in wash cycle for a little while with the upper arm off--that should flush out anything blocking the pipe up to the arm. If still nothing from the upper arm, tear down the lower arm assembly down to the deck while noting position of all parts removed. Clean the big screen at the bottom in white vinegar and hot water. Inspect the holes in the bottom for anything blocking them.

Top jets not working


I had the same problem on my LG washer, Check the plastic fitting that takes the water to the top section is securely pushed into its socket at the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. It was the problem with mine and it pops out every so often. I've thought of gluing it in but Im worried It'll prevent access for more serious repairs.
