Re: dishes won't come clean

If you have dishes (typically cutting boards or really tall dishes) that block the dispenser door from opening, the water cannot wash out all the detergent during the wash cycle. Check to see that after loading the dishes, your detergent door has clearance.

It didn't drain > only 2 1/2 years old > and I clean my dishes good before loading etc... ?? Help

run CLR through it
check that the drain hose is clear, did you recently get a new disposal?
check routing of drain hose to disposal, do you have an air gap at the sink before the disposal? is it clear?
hard water deposits?

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

Film on dishes and inside dishwasher

Hi debstone

This is a common problem. what you should do first is pick up some GLISTEN and run it through on a full wash with NO dishes. the use electasol POWDER detergent and turn your jet dry down to 1. that should fix your problem. hope this helped

Dishes are not coming out fully clean

first if the pump is running and you can hear it washing it should clean now hot water cleans dishes not the washer the hotter the better at least 130-135 degrees modern dish washers use less water than older models so if you don't get the water as hot as you can stand it at the sink before you turn the washer on you can fill it with cold water second its important that you use jet dry and if your dishes aren't dry at the end of the cycle then on most washers you can turn the disp up for more hope that helps let me know
