MY DISHWASHER DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE CLEANING MY DISHES


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

Dishes are not clean


HI, there are three different reasons why this will occur in this type of unit. inspect these areas carefully.

1. 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).

2.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.

3. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher. Make sure the temp is proper.

My Kenmore stand alone dishwasher leaks. the water seems to come out the front at the bottom of the door. i have cleaned the seal, but it doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?


the spray arm is clug in the hools or your spray arm stuck, put the spray arm in a position you remember run the machine for few second and open the door to see if the arm move.

Bottom Spray Arm Not Rotating


check to make sure you are getting enough water entering the dishwasher. If you add a liter of water, does the water arm turn then? If so, you may have a faulty water valve that is not allowing enough water to enter to turn the spray arm. Hope that solves it :)

Water coming out of bottom during run cycle


Your lower spray arm is broken, allowing the water the hit the door where it shouldn't thus causing the water to blow out of the door gasket. To remove you turn the center plastic screw in the middle of the spray arm clockwise while holding the spray arm stationary. You can obtain the spray arm either at you local appliance dealer or at repair clinic dot com.

No water inside


your bottom spray arm has holes where the water shoots through , make sure they are not clogged.Check upper spray arm also, remove any matter that is blocking the openings and run rinse aid through your D/W at all times. Hint : Glass Magic is a D/W product out in Markets ,if you can run that through the D/W your going to save alot of headaches . Please rate this !

Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Leaking


Got a possible solution from a brilliant guy named Jake on another website and thought I would post it back here.

"Check the door vent on the inner side of the door, that should just snap out, I have seen those clog and start making more pressure inside to make it leak from the bottom. Jake"

I checked mine and got a nasty surprise. Who knew it could get so dirty.

Dishwasher


  This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time.  It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles.  If water comes out arms but arms won't turn,  check all holes in arms.  It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn.   If arms spin freely by hand,  it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. 
  Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.
