Door on Kenmore Dishwasher dropping out pieces of black insulation on the floor and into the dishwasher basin. What is it? Can the insulation be replaced or is it new dishwasher time?

If it seems noisier, these black pieces are pitch (a hard tar-like substance) that's coated on dishwasher doors to make them quieter. Just to be safe, though, it might be a good idea to show them to somebody in an electrical shop.

How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Resivour at the botttom of the dishwasher is clogged and full of water/white soap.

Mine looked the same but if it smells bad it is not soap. It needs to be cleaned.

1. pull the filters out: there is a basket to catch large food particles, pinch tabs together to remove. then there is a round wire filter, turn clock-wise or counter clock wise- till it lifts out. (there will be a plastic piece that runs around half of this filter. it will easily pop on and off the tabs.) this will allow you to remove the rectangular wire filter that sits flush with the bottom of your dishwasher.

2. soak and then scrub. I poured a half cup of bleach into the bottom of my dishwasher and allowed it to sit for a good 10+ minutes. mine was filled with some pretty cloudy and nasty smelling water. at the same time, I soaked all the filters in bleach water. you could use CLR, or any good house hold cleaner. then scrub the filters with and old kitchen sponge.

3. re-assemble. if you look at each piece there are arrows that should line up when you connect them. the plastic semi-circular piece even has an arrow that points up.

4. run the dishwasher through for a whole cycle.

Good Luck!

I need a salton dishwasher instruction manual please where do i find this. also the water does not want to go out whitout puting the drain pipe flat on the ground!

you have not mentioned the model no. of your dishwasher.
The instruction manual for Salton SDW12 is available at this site. Scroll down after you select Download button and enter the code displayed to enable download.
It says Haier on the link but the actual manual is for Salton.

Hope this helps. Check the installation instructions for the output drain connection.

The problem is most likely that the pump empeller had been damage by pieces from a broken dish or a small piece of siverware. The only way to fix this is to take the dishwasher apart and replace the empeller. If you choose to do this yourself, you should go to the manufactures web site to see if you can download instructions on how.

Normal cycle leave dishes half clean. Heavy cycle

in the bottom of the machine, under the bottom rack, is a screen looking piece. twist or just pull up, should be able to clean that then replace.

Dishwasher won't drain

The problem is probably a simple one to fix. Remove the panel on the lower front of the dishwasher and disconnect the drain hose. Check in the hose for debris, like pieces of a broken plate.

Next remove the pump and look inside of it for pieces of debris. I am betting that you will find a chunk of glass or bone in the little pump. REassemble everything and your dishwasher should be fine.

Not all of the soap dissolving, some left in dispenser and bottom

Kitchenaid lists 130 dishwashers with this model. Need the rest of the number
Back in the day, when I worked on K Dishwashers, the drain valve was the problem typically.
It would get a piece of glass, from broken glass or other item, or a toothpick, whatever stuck in the drain valve. It would not completely close. During the wash cycle, water would be trickling down the drain and by the time the soap dispenser opens, the water would be gone or nearly gone.
Check this. When you hear the dispenser snap open, stop the dishwasher and open the door.
If you have little or no water, you are losing the water during the wash cycle.

Let me know.
