Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out.

Our Kenmore was not cleaning the upper dishes properly also. Obviously the water pressure delivered by the pump was restricted. Under the lower spinner and a larger plastic plate held on with 4 Torx screws and a smaller cover (2 more screws) over a small grinder cutter arm connected to the pump running around a circular metal perforated disk. This disk was clogged with the plastic from the dishwasher tabs - DON'T USE THEM!
Sadly the clog had also damaged plastic end of the pump that engaged with this spinning "cutter arm" so I had to modify the arm to make it fit again.

Once we stopped using the Tabs, all our problems disappeared.

How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

We recently bought a LG 7920ST stainless steel dishwasher. It doesn't properly was the dishes. Leaves food stuck on and doesn't clean the top rack at all. In fact, the glasses are dirtier afterward then...


we had the same problem with a new dishwasher. The repair man told us that the liquid soap would froth too much and not fully rinse out of the system. So the food particles stayed in the trap and wouldn't rinse away. Also the drain hose needs to be looped up to the top of the dishwasher or ran directly down to drain so the wash water doesn't just drain back into the dishwasher. Also check you top rack water jets to see if there are food particles which move into the holes and block the water flow on that level. Hope this helps :-)

Dirty cups and baby bottles after dishwasher has been run


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. One of the biggest causes of the symptom you describe is that there is a partial blockage of the drain. The blockage areas are most often in the "Air Gap" A device that looks like an inverted 5 oz Dixie cup on the back of the sink with no cone shape. Food particles collect in the very top of that and slow down the drain process. Because of that the dishwasher doesn't completely drain between cycles. So what you get is recycled previous cycle water in the rinse.

Other places where blockages occur are at the garbage disposal side inlet hole. And the last place is under the wash arm tower / mini riser in the pump impeller outlet area. To clean under the lower wash arm riser it requires diassembly and a good memory of how everything came apart / goes back together when your done cleaning.

Does not get dishes clean


There is a filter/trap located at the bottom of the machine held in place by 2 1/4 screws. This trap will be located at the lowest point in the dishwasher. Once the two screws are removed there is a lower tub that may have a bit of food debris in it. Sometimes there is food particles that do not get flushed out into the drain. Clean this area and you should be in good shape

Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.
