I have same problem, but I have started to use the high temperature wash and this works well. It probably uses more hot water.

You probably have guessed right all you have to do is test the voltage to match the original specs.

Will not clean dishes


Sometimes because of water pressure the inlet valve doesn't allow enough water into the machine to satisfy the float switch so you don't have enough water to completely clean the dishes.Manufacturers install whats called a flow washer to control the flow of water into the machine in case of too much water pressure. What you can do is remove the flow washer from the valve itself to allow enough water to enter the machine. The other problem could be that the water is not hot enough. Some water heaters are set to 120 deg. to save on utility bills. To clean effectively the dishwasher water temp needs to be at least 160 deg. which is the temp restaurants use to clean and sterilize their dishes. Check to see if your dishwasher has a water heat switch on the control panel that will increase the water temp to 160 deg. If not just turn up your water heater temp. To check water flow just open the door when it is finished with the first fill right before it starts washing and check to see if the float switch is satisfied. You can check it by just pushing down on it and listening for a click. Either one of these should solve your dirty dish problem. Good luck

Dishes aren't cleaning. Filling with water, rinsing then draining, refilling with water -- hot, soap released. When dishes come out, barely clean. Used to work like a charm... Thoughts?


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes do not clean, although the water is hot and the soap dispenses. Dishes and glasses have a cloudy residue at times, and dishes sometimes have small food particles baked onto the surfaces.

My dishwasher was working fine until yesterday, now it doesn't seem to use all the soap, I tried 2 times and there was still soap left over.


Hello there:
It doesn't get the dishes clean dot_lineone.gif 1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the watershut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water tothe dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fillcycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), inwhich case replace the water valve. There are also screens and filters that need to be cleaned to ensure proper operation so please check these as well

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. Thiscould be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (locatedunder the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Makesure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm. thee are also screens and filters under these arms that may need toi be cleaned

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.if not increase the hot water heater temp

5. . Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside thedishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.There are a few out there, we recommend Dishwasher Magic®.

My Kitchen Aid KUDI01FLBL3 is not cleaning my


Most likely there is debris at the pump impeller. This model has a problem with debris and grease accumulation at the pump inlet. I have no idea how it gets past the screen but it does. Remove the transfer tube on the back wall, the lower sprayer, and screen assembly. Clean out the debris and reverse installation.

Dishwasher does not clean the dishes properly


Hi

First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based upon the water temperature entering the DW and the soil level of the items in the DW.

Water not hot


Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!

No hot water when washing dishes


sounds like it was hooked up to a coldwater line instead of a hot and your heating element in the dishwasher went bad from overload or your pc board went bad but i would check to see if it is hooked up to hot water line first..
