SOURCE: Kitchen Aid dishwasher is not cleaning like it use to

Check the following to address this issue further.


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there.

Why isn't my dryer drying anymore?


Clear the vent hose to the outdoors- clean the lint trap - if all vents are clear, your temp safety switch is cutting off heat (for a reason) If dryer is 5 yrs orolder - replace with higher rated energy saver - it will pay off.

You have a major short to ground which is tripping the breaker. Get an electrician to check the machine, it may be as simple as you have trapped the cable. Don\'t mess with water and electrics. Electricity is the silent killer.

Hotpoint Aquarius dishwasher making awful rumble/crackle noise


Have you cleaned the traps and run some vinegar through? They build up dirt from kitchen debris over time which causes the pump and spray rails to pick up sludge. You need to clean them at least every 6 months. Check farther on line for cleaning solutions to clean and maintain dishwashers. I have been hearing clr can be used but can't confirm this.

I need my kitchen aid oven to unlock


NEVER use the self cleaning feature - again!!

Sounds like my problem two days ago. I have a Kitchen Aid free standing gas oven/range model
KGRI801PWH00. I read online that the thermo-fuse might've blown. I found the thermo-fuse after removing the rear panel. It was at the top/center. Mine is T-O-D (brand) 60F24; Westinghouse #8300802. I ordered mine from appliancepartspros.com for only $34.75; arrived in 36 hrs with regular shipping!! Easy to fix, sure beats several hundred $$ to repairman.

Don't bother to call Kitchen Aid - they'll just blow you off just like the hundreds of complaints said that I found online.

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth


First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

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.

Kitchen aid range heats up too slowly


Take the element out and check the ohms on the element. Replacing the element will fix you up.
