I have a Samsung Dishwasher DMT800RHS, dishes have brown film, tried Lemon Magic, fixed 9e code, still dirty dishes. Used liquid detergent, still dirty dishes. Sometimes white film.


Sounds like its not draining properly between cycles. Its time for an appliance engineer I'm guessing. Can you access the drain pump hose area to see if its clogged.

You may have a bad pump, or the pump intake (inside the bottom tray, under the dish racks) may be clogged with crud from years of dirty dishes.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes


DISHWASHER NOT CLEANING WELL??
Here are 5 common reasons why not.
Here are Improper Water Temperature
I can tell you from personal experience that water temperature has a direct impact on how well your family's dishwasher operates. If the water entering your dishwasher is not hot enough, your dishes are likely to come out coated with grease and dish detergent residue. As such, you will want to make sure that the temperature of the water inside your dishwasher is somewhere between the range of 120 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If it's not it could be a faulty heating element.
Dirty Pump
Based on my experience, a dirty dishwasher pump will also cause your dishwasher to produce less than stellar results. Therefore, you may want to consider cleaning your dishwasher's pump every six months. In many instances, it is an easy task to complete. In order to clean your dishwasher's pump, you'll most likely have to remove the dishwasher's spray arms. Once the spray arms are removed, you'll want to clean and inspect the pump's impellers, blades and pump guard. I should also mention that there are appliance companies that sell dishwasher pump repair kits should you notice that a part needs to be replaced. A basic dishwasher pump repair kit will tend to cost you $20 to $60 depending on your dishwasher's unique needs.
Dirty Spray Arm
Dirty spray arms may also be to blame. After all, if the spray arms' holes are clogged, the hot water won't be able to reach the dishes properly. A dishwasher's spray arms are very simple to clean. In order to clean them, you will need an old toothbrush and a bread twist tie that has been stripped of its paper. Use the toothbrush's bristles and the wire from the bread twist tie to unclog all the holes.
Broken Dish Detergent Dispenser
A broken dish detergent dispenser is another likely culprit when it comes to dish cleanliness problems. Sometimes the dish detergent dispenser's door will not open or shut properly, which prevents the dishes from getting nice and soapy. The good news is that most dish detergent dispenser problems may be solved relatively inexpensively. The cost of a replacement dish detergent dispenser will vary based on the make and model of your dishwasher. There are also instructional videos online that will help you with the installation of your dishwasher's new detergent dispenser.
Dirty Filter
A filter has an impact on a dishwasher's effectiveness as well. Hence, you will want to inspect your dishwasher's filter for obstructions. The location and type of filter will vary based on your dishwasher's make and model. I would recommend that you check out your dishwasher's operator's manual. It should contain instructions on how to clean your particular unit's filter as well as where you can order a replacement part if need be.

Dish washer dosnt pomp the wather out and dosnt clean good


I would imagine your pump is either clogged or has gone bad. at any rate you need to remove pump and see if asny dirt debris is in the line. The pump being dirty or bad directly effects the cleanliness of you cycle as the dirty water can not be properly removed.

Dishes are always dirty, maybe even dirtier after running dishwasher. has hot water, lower arm moves.


Check the outlet holes on both spray arms for clogs. If necessary, remove the spray arms, clean out the holes and empty out any debris inside the spray arms. Verify that the upper arm is turning also.

If the machine does not drain completely at the end of the cycle, the pump drain outlet is partially blocked and you are retaining dirty water for the next load.

You may have a chemistry problem - inferior soap, empty rinse agent dispenser, or extremely hard water.

Improper arrangement of the dishes can prevent some from being washed. Make sure no dish blocks the spray to another.

The top rack does not get clean. There is a dirty


Most likely the "food grinder" screen is clogged, which limits the flow throught the pump, leaving thehigher dishes unwashed. It's flaw inthe design of whirlpool/kitchenaides. Not only does the screen clog but the teeth on the "grinder" wear down, the girneder does no grinding, and the food particles build up onthe screen, clogging the water flow. Open up the collector, pul out he choer/grinder and clean the screen. Check the teeth on it and if worn, repalce the chopper/grinder. If it happens again , then the choper/grinder driving mechanism is basd -- replace the pump/motor assembly.

Dishwasher runs but the dishes aren't clean and low water pressure out of the arms dish soap left in the dishsoap tray


Try some Lime Away or high strength vinegar, to remove any scale from the pump. If it is not scalely, try to remove the spray arms to check if the pump has trash in it.

Dishes not clean enough. as if rinsing in dirty


If your dishwasher drains it's water to a garbage disposal, give the disposal a spin while the dishwasher is pumping out. Check around the bottom of the dishwasher to make sure something is not clogging the drain.

Clogged water dispenser in Bosch dishwasher


Hi, Logmanup (slight bouts with dyslexia, sorry)

By "spinning water dispensers", I assume you mean the spray arms, right? OK... if they are getting clogged with debris it would be nice to know what kind of debris. Pieces of broken glass? Plastic? Lime scale? Iron? And yes, when they get clogged they won't rotate, won't allow pressurized water through and therefore won't clean the dishes.

For the purpose of this solution, I'll assume that there are little white particles clogging up the jets on the spray arms. This indicates hard water and lime scale build up.

Other than completely disassembling the entire motor/pump assy. (you really don't want to go there), the best way to clear this out of the system is to use an over the counter chemical called Dishwasher Magic or something similar. If the lime scale build up is really bad (and it sounds like it is), use a couple of bottles to start with and follow up with a bottle per month thereafter.

As an aside... If I assumed correctly about the lime scale build up, that means that it's also affecting other appliances as well. Mainly, your hot water heater. If you haven't done it before, please read this to perform maintenance on it. And a product something like this for your washing machine.

I hope this was helpful. Let us know if this works or not. If not, please write back and we'll go a little deeper.

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack


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