Where to clean the food out

I do not know how to clean the food out of my dishwasher. It is a portable one, it was in the house when we bought it I have the use and care guide to it but it says nothing about cleaning it out. the only thing the guide says is that it is a whirlpool model series 920 and I keep getting food particles stuck all over my dishes after every use I dont know what to do.

A dishwasher cleaner may help. It usually is for lime deposits but it still may break the stuff down enough to flush it out. Wal-Mart or an appliance store should have it.

Whirlpool Built-in dishwasher Model DU8700XB -O


Most dishwashers have a soil separator which separates the soil from the water while it's washing. When a wash cycle is over a valve opens in the separator to allow the soil to go down the drain. If it's not working properly the washer will leave a film or food particles on the dishes.
It's under the lower spray arm. Post your model number and I may can find a diagram for you. Dishwasher- Inside the doorjamb on the top, left or right. On the door edge top left or right. Portable models on the back.

Regular cycle no longer cleans well


Thanks for the clarification (we get a lot of people on here that don't know how to really use a dishwasher).

Sounds to me like the DW may need a through going over.

Confirm the make and model of the DW so I can see how it's built. I am suspect that with all the food particles and film you mention, that the spray heads are clogged in the spray bars, and, check that the drain hose is not kinked, and it's attachment into the garbage disposal is clear. I've had these clog before, limiting the ability of the DW to get rid of the dirty water.

Doesn't clean dishes


By clean what exactly do you mean...is there a film...or is it food particles...and did it happen at the other address...and was the other address.....far away or did it have a water treatment.system...If it is just a film as in white deposits...it sounds like hard water and you can install a filter for the water before it gets to the DW under the Sink or and entire system for the House "Hey Culligan Man" :-)...otherwise...it doesn't sound like anything else since the DW worked great at the other address.....thanks and let me know....please rate me if this was helpful...thank you ....The Fang

Specks of "sand-like" food on my dishes; water not draining


I bought a replacement filter and that dramatically cut down on the amount of "specs." Now there are only a few in some of the glasses. I also cleaned out the drain underneath the screen, there were peas and corn in there, I just used a shop vac to **** them out. Seems to be much better now, I think a good inside cleaning of the washer will help out too. Hope this helps...

That screen is held in place by two screws. Remove the screws, pull out the screen, clean it and put it back. You should perform this cleaning periodically to keep your dishwasher running perfectly.

Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
