Question about Dishwashers
I can put perfectly clean dishes in the dishwasher but when I run it they come out covered in residue and food particles from previous loads.

Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com

SOURCE: Dishes not clean
If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:
Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.
Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement
Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

SOURCE: black residue
The black residue is possibly rust from iron pipes. I have an old house with iron pipes and when the washer opened the valve that lets water in from the supply hose it did so suddenly and created a "water hammer" that shook the pipe. The hose supplied with the washer became clogged with this black rust material and needed to be replaced. I replaced it with a different type that did not have a spill proof valve and added an "air cushion". An air cushion is a short 6" vertical pipe teed before the valve. It fills with air bubbles and cushions the shock of that valve turning on thus stopping the pipes from shaking and the loosing of interior pipe corrosion. If the black residue is hard and gritty it is rust not rubber. Wipe the inside of the washer clean of it. Disconnect the supply line and fill a five gallon bucket with it. If rust is coming from the inlet you will see it in the bucket. If you don't have a shut off valve at the washer you'll want to put one on now as turning off the main releases quite a lot of material from the pipes as they drain.
