Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IRBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
My water temperature is within the recommended temp of the detergent manufacturer. I have tried the new packet, gel, and powder types of detergent.
I have cleaned the inside of the dishwasher with Tang, and vinegar as well as checking the bottom filter for debris. I have removed the upper spray arm and cleaned this as well (nothing appeared to be in the arm).
It seems that every dishwasher I've ever had runs fine for 2-3 years and this same problem occurs after this time frame (I've had this dishwaser for approximately 3 years) no matter the brand.
Are you using a brand name powder like Electrosol or Cascade? Try that first. Seriously, it makes a difference.
When you say your water temp is within the recommended temp for the detergent manufacturer, do you mean the water heater temp at the sink tap is 120 degrees? MOST problems with cleaning that are not caused by generic detergent or plugged filter/debris in the impeller area are caused by a failed heating element. No kidding, it makes a BIG difference and once it is repaired, you will see an immediate difference.
glenda, First try this: remove the lower spray arm and the filter and assembly. Clean everything in the sink and with a flashlight, inspect everywhere for "chunks" that is probably causing the noise.
Reassemble and test. If dishes still do not get clean, check the heating element, replace if needed.
If that does not fix the problem, you will need to replace the main wash motor/impeller.
Please update me with what you both find. OK?
