Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Residue and food particles left on dishes in upper rack.

Only had this dishwasher for 3 years and about 8 months ago we have had grime and residue left on anything cleaned on upper rack. Took apart and cleaned arms (upper and lower), grinder. Still works terribly. Do not see any buildup of soap. Wondering what else to do before call appliance guy or get another washer....whichever is cheaper!

Check the inlet screen at the bottom of the dishwasher that could impede the flow.

Otherwise the pump may be to blame.

Help! The dishes on the top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher (KUDS01FKPA0) don't get clean. this problem started last year, and two different things may be happening. A guy replaced a part (a screen with a...


The part he replaced (chopper) is a common problem with this particular machine. If he has removed all residual food particles from the machine, and you have done your part to rinse them thoroughly before loading, I doubt you have the same issue. There could be other possibilities. One: The water inlet valve could be restricting, thereby not allowing the the proper amount of water into the machine. Two: The internal pump impellers may be worn, and not propelling the water upward enough to reach the top rack. Hope this lends a little insight.

Food residue and a thin film or coating is being left on dishes. Top and bottom shelf items are affected. Started happening 4 months ago after working perfectly fine for 4 years.


Hi,

The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Residue and small particles left in upper rack dishes and glasses. maytag mbh940aww dishwasher.Is there a filter to clean?


Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.

Dishes in upper shelf have food particles


You asked if I fixed the problem and I didn't. And I got tired tying to navigate your website to actually know where I was. I was sent a user and password, but found no place to log on and of coursed I have not paid for anything and do not plan to do so in the future because just getting through your site seemed like too much of a hassle.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

Film and food residieu remains on upper rack


Hi, is the wash arm underneath the upper basket turning freely and is it not blocked with any food particles? I've had items out of my dishwasher with a similar problem and it's been when the upper wash arm has been blocked or a spoon has fell through and prevented it from turning and washing properly.

Good luck.

Grit like residue after cycle finishes.


I had the same problem and it was fixed by switching dishwasher soap. We always used the same liquid soap for years and when this problem came out of the blue (about 8 months ago) I switched to Cascade action pacs with Dawn. It did the trick! No more residue since then. We now are having a problem with the dishwasher not draining (our unit is 8 years old), but the grit issue has been handled!
