Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
The upper shelf is especially dirty.....does the dishwasher have a trap that needs to be cleaned or what Please help I hate rewashing everything after I run the dishwasher !!!
Well, if the motor is moving, try adding a half gallon of /hot/ water before you start the cycle (just pour a saucepan full directly into the dishwasher). If that sounds like it is doing a lot more "blasting" than it was before- you probably need a new water inlet valve, or perhaps to take your water inlet valve off and try to clean out the screen. Problem being, you arent getting enough water into the washer before it starts washing.
It is located at the front of the machine behind the panel under the door.. but as a check, make sure that the valve under the sink that sends water to the dishwasher is all the way open, as this can cause the same problem.
If you do decide to remove the valve, be sure to cut the power at the breaker, or unplug the dishwasher, and turn off the water valve under the sink.
