    We bought the type of the line Kenmore elite, and it has never gotten the food off the dishes.... the repair guy from Sears basically told us to hand was the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher... so why did I spend the $1000? The only that has helped is Cascade complete... but still a crummy dishwasher for food removal. Any suggestions?

    Dishes in the bottom come out not bad but the dishes in the top don't seem to get spayed nearly as much as they should and 8 out of 10 are still dirty.

    This dishwasher advertises that that isn't necessary!! It has a food disposer!!! Answer is not acceptable. Anyway, it does not even get the "easy" stuff off, like salad dressing.

Try rinsing all of the food off the dishes before u put them in the dishwasher, also run the hottest water u can into the sink before u start the dishwasher.

We have a Kenmore Elite 630.16304401 dishwasher, lately we are getting small black greasy spots on the plastic dishes, also same spots on the plastic parts in the sump where you clean the filter? We h


A couple of thoughts:

1) It could be a gasket somewhere starting to break down. Check your door seal.

2) Food particles could have gotten caught somewhere in the drain hose, or something, and then turned black with mold and bacteria, then when you wash, they get siphoned back into the dishwasher if the flap which composes the anti-siphon check valve on the drain hose is starting to stick open.

Try putting a cup of bleach in the top rack and run a complete cycle with no other dishes in it. Then, load up some plastic dishes and wash them as normal. See if that helps. If it does, replace your check valve.

Also, insure that your drain hose is looped up above the bottom of your sink to prevent debris from your garbage disposal backing up into your dishwasher.

Good luck and keep us posted!

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem?...


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and blocked.

I have a kenmore dishwasher. I had it checked out by service and there is nothing wrong with it however it leaves a white film on my dishes. What can i do to stop this?


You may try a different detergent, and this may give you some relief. What works best, in my opinion, is to use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get the dishes clean. Cut the added detergent in half, and go downwards from there. We are currently using ~25% of the recommended amount, and the dishes clean up very well, with no residue.
Rinsing excess food off of the dishes prevents the soft food disposer in most new models from being overwhelmed, and will increase the overall performance of your machine over several cycles.
Also, using a good rinse agent will help, as will opening the cabinet door after the drying cycle (while still warm), allowing the dishes to continue to air dry.
Hope that this gives you some relief.

Best regards,

Kenmore Elite: - Stale smell from dishwasher, won't go away, lingers on dishes, glasses. I tried a vinegar remedy suggested by a diy site - it helps for a cycle or two, but the smell comes right back. ...


try useing your heat to dry at the end of wash,or mabey take and blow your unit out with a compressor and attatchment especially the drain outlet. also run a cycle with just a little lime away then flush with a second rinse.

Dishwasher leaving debri and food partical on dishes. the top arm seams to be not moving but water is getting threw.


top arms are normally free-wheeling, depending on water pressure from beneath to operate and distribute the rinse water. Is it possible you have dishes or utensils being placed in the top rack which would prohibit the arm from turning?

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.
