SOURCE: upper rack dishes dirty

Is it filling with enough water. Look or if you don't know how much water is supposed to be there , Just add a gallon of hot water to the machine after it fills. If this solves the problem check the filter in the fill valve or replace the valve.

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

SOURCE: Dishes not clean. Lower spray arm possibly not moving.

Remove the lower basket so you can access the lower arm.

Does it spin freely? If not, remove and clean the rotating point. Make sure the spray nozzles are not clogged and there as no chunks of stuff inside the spray arm.

www.Repairclinic.com is a great place to look. But from past experienc, dishwasher racks are very expensive and almost 1/2 the cost of a new one. Good luck.

Dishes don't always get clean, particularly on the top shelf. I suspect that the built in garbage disposal may be clogged. How do I take off the bottom water sprayer arm to get to the garbage disposal?


Greetings,
first off, let me say this..its not intended to be used as a garbage disposal.. it has a strainer(screen) and a blade that grinds up food , but not like you would use in your sink disposal. its for small amounts of foodstuffs that failed to come off after you have rinsed off your dishes.

the lower spray arm by un-screwing the center cap clockwise (yes this is the opposite of normal threading direction, the plug will go down and out the back of the spinner).

5) Both the fine filter (round 8") and the water conduit leading back and up to the top will need to be removed.
dishwasher_disassembly_05.jpg

6) The water conduit has to be removed. It might be possible to take it apart, but the more direct approach is to release the back (here) clip, and the top clip.

7) A similar clip must be released at the top:

8) With the water conduit released from the clips, the whole assemble must be rotated thirty degrees clockwise about the central pump outlet. This will release this plastic item from its bayonet mount there so it can be removed.

9) Remove this thing.

10) Remove first of three torqx screws to release the filter. The screws are at ten o'clock, eight o'clock and 4'clock. This is the eight o'clock screw.

11) Remove the second of three torqx screws to release the filter. This is the ten o'clock screw.

12) Remove the third of three torqx screws to release the filter. This is the four o'clock screw.

13) Remove the filter and base.

I want to take off the bottom screen to clean debris. I have taken screws out, how do I remove the screen?


You may to remove more screws from around the complete bottom part of your dishwasher. Have you tried to add Dishwasher Magic to clean the grit and grime out first? Or perhaps if you can't find Dishwasher Magic, we started using Tang Orange Juice powder before the days of the modern prodcuts. The citrus in the powder eats all the tiny food particles away.

In either case, empty all the dishes from the inside, add a cup of Tand or follow the instruction on the box of DW Magic. Run your d/w through a complete cycle.

This should clean your dishwasher out.

Hope this solves your problem.

Dishwasher not cleaning - want to clean drain


We have a Kenmore 665.17702k600 Portable dishwasher with a similar problem. What we did was pop off the drain cover (turns out the one screw wasn't doing anything and just pushed down into the unit when screwdriver was applied). We popped it off by shimmying a screwdriver under the panel, and applying torque on the long end. It just popped right off. Then there was this nasty stale water, and not much obvious debri. We used a wet vac to slurp all that up. So that's the solution we took -- haven't tried it yet, so not sure if it will actually fix the problem...

Kenmore Dishwasher 17369 not thoroughly cleaning


The first is to look for filters and drains to clean. Also check out the jets, as sometimes these can be clogged farther back than you can see with a quick inspections. You can likely remove them and take a good look. Secondly, you may want to switch detergents. Perhaps the quality of the water you are using has changed, hard water build up or you have changed detergents. You have to find the right detergent for the kind of water you are using, especially if you don't have a water softener. where the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher needed cleaning out. Just take the screws out, pull the plastic filter out and clean. Hope this helps. Report

Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?


I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!
