KUDS01FKSS dishwasher not cleaning

I have the KUDS01FKSS dishwasher from kitchenaid and it does not nor has it ever cleaned the dishes well. I have tried loading it in several different ways. My old dishewaher always worked just fine so I don't see how it could be a water pressure or hard water problem. i really think this dishwasher just sucks! However I don't think Kitchenaid will stand behind their product from the different negative reviews I have read. Any suggestions on how to deal with the company to get good results and be a happy consumer in the end?

Re: KUDS01FKSS dishwasher not cleaning

One thing to check is soap usage. Newer dishwashers use less water and require less soap. Too much soap will redeposit on dishes. Try halving soap usage. Also run hot water in sink until it gets hot before running dishwasher. I have a Whirlpool. Same thing. Works great. If your water is hard add more detergent.

Water fills and cycles fine. Arms do not spin; no cleaning. Circulation motor?

Either the motor or chopper is broken. If chopper is broken the screen will be clogged with food. If its clgged you can clean it and reinstall and see if theres any improvement. If so replace chopper.

Dishwasher doesn't rinse all of soap off of dishes--especially on upper rack.

check the spray arms for free rotation. Clean the jet holes if they are clogged.

Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine :
put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , check that the spray arm move...
make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door...
good luck 911servicetoday . com
