Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
I place my dishes in the dishwasher and the arms are not blocked. The detergent is not disolving and the dishes are not coming out clean after a full cycle. The dishes especially glasses are coming out worse then they went in. What do I do to fix it?
first you will need to check if the water supply line filter is clogged if not make sure that all of the strainers are not clogged i know that you said the spray arms are clean but if you get a real close look the nozzels expecially the end ones get clogged really easly if you use a tooth pick you can get these cleaned out if all of this does not work than i would suggest replacing the water pump this is what delovers the water under pressure to the spray arms ok
best regards mike

I was having the same problem. I put a call into the repair center and they pointed out a more simple solution. Look inside where your rinse aid cap sits. There should be a low to high setting (or in my case numbers from 2 to 6). There should be some form of an arrow on the black part where you pour your rinse aid onto. Make sure that it's at it's highest setting. Try washing the load of dishes a second time. I hope this works for you!

things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
