Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
Dishes aren't getting clean. filter needs cleaning every few weeks. is this normal?
This dishwasher (I have it too) doesn't have a grinder, using a filter system instead (as you've found). I hate it and have found the only way to not have to keep taking it apart to clean out the food is to rinse before loading... i try to rinse away all chunks all the way down to anything big enough to get caught in the fine, inner filter (like pepper flakes).

i would think that unless your model says it is self cleaning then yes it is normal to have to clean the filters on a dish washer. the amount of time between cleans would depend on how dirty your dishes are.

It sounds like your wash pump impeller might be clogged. The first symptom of this problem is poor cleaning capabilities and food left on dishes. You will need to remove the spray arm assembly to access the reservoir below the spray arm. More than likely, you will find debris clogging the the wash pump impeller area. As a general rule of thumb, you should not put anything into dishwasher that still has to be chewed. You don't have to prewash your dishes, just scrape them real well. Most detergents still need to oils and residue from food to activate the cleaning agents. If you prewash, you simply defeat this purpose. Some things that should NOT go into a dishwasher are lemon seeds, orange seeds, pistachio seeds, popcorn kernels, chunks of meat, bacon, tooth picks, chicken bones, match sticks, bottle cap liners, jar labels, etc. These are a small example of SOME of the things I have personally found in the wash pump. It doesn't take much to clog the pump, and the chopper assembly is not to be considered a disposal. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Hi Dolly, If this is the only problem you have with your dishwaser, no need to move to a new one !!!! You will face the same phenomena with the new machine, so why to waste money. Good luck with your children's dishes cleaning course.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

That sounds like the float switch is acting up. It is a mushroom looking device on the bottom that has a movable (up and down) plastic cup over the top. With the machine off, take the lower tray out and lift up on the cup--you should hear a faint 'click' when it nears the upper limit. It should also drop to the bottom when released. There may be food deposits that interfere with the proper movement of the cup. Are you using dish washer detergent only?

The inlet screen is at the bottom of the unit. Clean it out and re-try.
