Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

1 Answer

Should the inside of the elite dishwasher still be wet at the end of the cycle?

We ran our elite Kenmore dishwasher for the 1st time. The dishes were clean and dry, but the inside of the machine is still wet.

Martha,
If you are talking about having a small amount of water down in the bottom of your dishwasher, that is normal. There is a sump down there that needs to have water in it. If you are talking about having water on the walls, that is probably just condensation from the cycle when you run the heater. Try cracking the door after the cycle is done to let the excess steam out of the dishwasher and that may eliminate the water on the walls. Hope this helps!

My new Kenmore Elite panel ready dishwasher leaves wet


You need only enough space so the door does not rub when opened. If the unit is too far back under the cabinet the countertop (if wood) can be damaged by the exhausting moisture. The dry feature on the newer models is just as you describe. The moisture from the hotter dishes evaporates and is condensed on the cooler walls and door of the wash tub. Dry dishes wet tub is normal.

Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

Spray Arms dont work, dishes dirty after cleaning cycle


Do the spray bars rotate easily? If not, you need to remove the spray bars and clean the insides out (do this even if the spray bars do turn easily.). Also check that where they mount is clean and free of debris.

Check the nozzles and make sure they are not plugged.

Also check that the inlet screen to the pump is not clogged (around the bottom of the unit).

Let me know what you find, and tell me if you can hear water spraying inside the unit during a wash cycle (and do the dishes get wet.).
