Kitchenaid dishwasher model# KUDK031TWHO seems to allow water into bottom of dishwasher but will not shoot the water over the dishes in order to clean them. Not sure if there is a simple solution to this problem or is this problem only solved with the replacement of the pump/motor

You put the bottom basket in reverse. Turn it arround, and align the centre pipe to the pressure nozzel.

Frigidaire dishwasher is not spraying water from bottom


From what you have described, sounds like the sprayer arms are possibly loose or being held into place and can't rotate, by dishware.

I have a KitchenAid KUDSEWH2 dishwasher that is not allowing the water to spray onto the dishes. It comes into the DW through the fill part but does not spray upwards into the racks


Either your motor or capacitor are bad, or the chopper screen inside the pump is plugged, which can mean the chopper is broken. Remove the lower spray arm, the screws on pump cover, the cover, then screws inside pump that hold chopper cover. If screen isn't plugged the motor or capacitor are bad.

I went to take out my dishes out of the dishwasher this morning and the tablet was sitting at the bottom of the machine half disolved and most of my dishes weren't washed properly. What is the problem?


1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

Our ten year old kitchenaid dishwasher doesn't get the dishes clean. there is food particles left on dishes if we don't completely rinse our dishes. is there a cleanout filter that needs to be emptied?


Locate your dishwasher's filter. It is typically on the floor of the dishwasher. Pull out the bottom rack and look along the bottom of the dishwasher until you find it.

Use a paper towel or sponge to remove any residue or debris that has accumulated on the outside of the filter once you locate it. On some dishwashers, the filter area does not detach or open, so your hand cleaning will stop here. On other models, you can unscrew the filter housing to access the inside and clean any debris from the filter area. Simply wash out the filter using soap and water, then reassemble once cleaning is complete.

Further clean the filter area by pouring a quart of white vinegar into the bottom of the empty dishwasher. Turn to a wash cycle and allow the dishwasher to run with the vinegar cleaning the mechanisms, including the filter.

To deep-clean your dishwasher and the filter periodically, mix the following ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into the bottom of the dishwasher: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup bleach. Let the mixture sit in the bottom of the empty dishwasher overnight. The next morning run a wash cycle, letting the bleach mixture clean and disinfect the dishwasher thoroughly.

No water is coming in to dishwasher. Kitchenaid kudk031twho


measure the voltage to the water fill valve. it should be about 120 volts in fill mode. if it is, then the inlet screen may be plugged. turn off water and disconnect pipe. examine and or clean screen. if screen is clean (some may not have one) and it has 120 volts applied to it then you need to replace the fill valve.

I know this isnt the same model, they dont carry your manual as of yet. But it does have some suggestions to look at on page 17. I had the same problem and I looked really carefully and found my sprayer arm was blocked. I cleaned it out and havent had a problem with it again. I do check it regular now.

Dishes not being washed


Check your wash arms are they clogged. If you have too much trash in the machine you may have clogged your wash arms. OR you may have a screen in the bottom of the tub that is clogged with trash not allowing your pump to pum the water adequately. The last possibility, is your pump impala is damaged or worn out and not pumping water. The wash arms and screen you can do. Call a repair man if that doesn't take care of the problem

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher - top shelf not getting dishes clean


Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.
