Dishwasher soap is not dissolving.

Try emptying the dishwasher and putting a few tablespoons of vegatable oil in the bottom. Run the cycle without soap and no dishs. Often dish soap (palmolive) builds up and creates soap suds that won't go away during a normal cycle. The oil binds with the soap residue to get rid of it. It worked for my Kenmore. I know do it every few months. Good Luck!!!

Have Kenmore Elite 665 11yrs old, bakes soap on dishes top and bottom racks. Tried powder and liquid soap,no difference.Tried water heat with no rinse dry,no difference.

That seems like it's probably related to the recent ban on phosphates in dishwashing soaps. Quite a number of people have found that their dishwashers aren't working as well and are leaving spots and soap behind now that phosphates are not being used.
A little vinegar may help, but the best answer would be to use a water softener.

Lost manual. How do you fill up the jet-dry rinse? i filled it up and tightened it but last few washes seemed no difference. Still residue left on dishes. Do i loosen the cap? Thanks!

Your problem could be one of the following:

* position of dishes, etc. (no obstructions)
* spray arms clogged or non-movement
* water hardness level
* not rinsing dishes, etc. prior to wash
* amount of detergent (try different amounts +/-)

Empty the dishwasher and put some powdered lemonade in there. Run it for a full cycle. It will take the lime deposits and other **** out of your dishwasher and it's very safe.

Liduide soap

Hi mansim,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: how to use liquid dish soap in the kenmore dishwasher?and which place in dishwasher?

I think it prudent we are first clear on terminology. Based on your discription of your "dish soap", please be certain it says "dishwasher soap". If it doesn't say "dishwasher" on it then it's not meant for your dishwasher.
For a standard american dishwasher the soap goes into a small cmpartment in the door. Just open door fully and you will see the rectangular box on the left. Soap in, then close box. The dishwasher will open it on the second cycle.

Feel free contact me again!

Detergent remains after wash cycle

You should start using Electrol liguid dishwasher deterget, which comes in a container that dissolves when ittouches water. i've been using it for about a year, and it doesn't leave anything and my dishes look better than ever!
