Kenmore Dishwasher Problems

I have a Kenmore Ultrawash Quietguard 4 that doesn't appear to be finishing the wash cycle.  There is water in it, all of the dishes are wet (and hot) when the green light, finished indicator is illuminated, but everyhing is covered with drippy soapy residue.  So the drying cyle was also bypassed. There is also still detergant in the open detergent dispenser. Its the liquid-gell type detergent too, so there can't be mush waterjet action going on in there. Any suggestions ?!

Thanks for any direction.

Most dishes in any dishwasher are still wet when cycle is finished. The heat built up in the dishes during the washing cycle is what causes the water to evaporate when the machine stops.
If you want to accelerate the evaporation, simply open the door very slightly so that as the hot air escapes it causes the dishes to dry quicker.

Glasses have a white, chalky film around the top of glasses


This due in part with the government mandate to remove phosphates from detergent.
Several things can be done to improve the clean appearance of your dishes.
1. Start a wash cycle with no dishes and no soap. Once the wash cycle has stated and water is circulating,open the door and pour in one quart of white vinegar and resume the wash cycle.
2. Use a detergent named FINISH.
3. Use only the recommended amount of detergent.
4. Periodically use a product named LemiShine.
Taking these steps will improve the quality and appearance of the dishes.
On a final note: too hot water temperature can cause etching in glasses and only a lower water temp will prevent new glasses from etching.

Dishwasher Clean light blinks constantly.


Try turning off the power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. leave the power off for 5 10 mins and then turn breaker back on and try to restart dishwasher. This may reset the board and it may work

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing


Hi Claire,
Are you using rinse aid?
that may help with the film.you may also have stuff down in the trap causing the water to drain slow.
