Dishwasher not cleaning dishes


DISHWASHER NOT CLEANING WELL??
Here are 5 common reasons why not.
Here are Improper Water Temperature
I can tell you from personal experience that water temperature has a direct impact on how well your family's dishwasher operates. If the water entering your dishwasher is not hot enough, your dishes are likely to come out coated with grease and dish detergent residue. As such, you will want to make sure that the temperature of the water inside your dishwasher is somewhere between the range of 120 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If it's not it could be a faulty heating element.
Dirty Pump
Based on my experience, a dirty dishwasher pump will also cause your dishwasher to produce less than stellar results. Therefore, you may want to consider cleaning your dishwasher's pump every six months. In many instances, it is an easy task to complete. In order to clean your dishwasher's pump, you'll most likely have to remove the dishwasher's spray arms. Once the spray arms are removed, you'll want to clean and inspect the pump's impellers, blades and pump guard. I should also mention that there are appliance companies that sell dishwasher pump repair kits should you notice that a part needs to be replaced. A basic dishwasher pump repair kit will tend to cost you $20 to $60 depending on your dishwasher's unique needs.
Dirty Spray Arm
Dirty spray arms may also be to blame. After all, if the spray arms' holes are clogged, the hot water won't be able to reach the dishes properly. A dishwasher's spray arms are very simple to clean. In order to clean them, you will need an old toothbrush and a bread twist tie that has been stripped of its paper. Use the toothbrush's bristles and the wire from the bread twist tie to unclog all the holes.
Broken Dish Detergent Dispenser
A broken dish detergent dispenser is another likely culprit when it comes to dish cleanliness problems. Sometimes the dish detergent dispenser's door will not open or shut properly, which prevents the dishes from getting nice and soapy. The good news is that most dish detergent dispenser problems may be solved relatively inexpensively. The cost of a replacement dish detergent dispenser will vary based on the make and model of your dishwasher. There are also instructional videos online that will help you with the installation of your dishwasher's new detergent dispenser.
Dirty Filter
A filter has an impact on a dishwasher's effectiveness as well. Hence, you will want to inspect your dishwasher's filter for obstructions. The location and type of filter will vary based on your dishwasher's make and model. I would recommend that you check out your dishwasher's operator's manual. It should contain instructions on how to clean your particular unit's filter as well as where you can order a replacement part if need be.

You dont really need it, when the washer gets done Open the door for a minute and let the steam out and shut the door dishes will then dry. the reason there still wet is because of the steam from the Hot water

Dishes aren't clean. i have run vingegar and CR through the cycle but dishes and glasses still have a film.


The most common cause of film left behind is a broken heating element.

The heating element is not only used during the dry cycle, but also to raise the water temp. during the main wash cycle to activate the dishwasher detergent. Fixing the heating element should "clear" this problem right up!

Kenmore quiet guard standard ocassionally does not use/mix all soap supply and does not get dishes clean. Any ideas?


MIne did the same thing a couple of times. I found that I had put a casserole dish on its side in front of the soap dispenser...so it opened, but the sprayed water could not get to it.
Hope this helps.

Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?


I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!
