Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Have to hand wash dishes before and after dishwasher does not clean anything. Food just stays on dishes and glasses come out bad. Use the rinse and have cleaned it with the cleaning solution several times. Works a little better for a day or 2 after cleaning

Suggest you check the salt level. Also open the door part way through a wash cycle (after only opening a small amouny first) to ensure that water being dispersed around compartment correctly

Why do dishes stink when they come out of dishwasher?


try running the dish washer on the heated cycle and use a quality wash detergent not ordinary washing up liquid

This is a 3 yr old dishwasher with very gentle use. It now is not cleaning glasses....even when rinsed before hand the glasses are still stained and spotted. Also my silverware needs to be completely...


Hard water stains are easily taken care of with the help of vinegar. Add 1/4 vinegar to the cycle when you start it and it will help to remove spots and cloudiness.
As for food residue you might check your filters and water pressure.

Dirty cups and baby bottles after dishwasher has been run


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. One of the biggest causes of the symptom you describe is that there is a partial blockage of the drain. The blockage areas are most often in the "Air Gap" A device that looks like an inverted 5 oz Dixie cup on the back of the sink with no cone shape. Food particles collect in the very top of that and slow down the drain process. Because of that the dishwasher doesn't completely drain between cycles. So what you get is recycled previous cycle water in the rinse.

Other places where blockages occur are at the garbage disposal side inlet hole. And the last place is under the wash arm tower / mini riser in the pump impeller outlet area. To clean under the lower wash arm riser it requires diassembly and a good memory of how everything came apart / goes back together when your done cleaning.

My dishes come out with cloudy film on them.


From Whirlpool:

*Film is due to either etching or silica film. Silica film is a milky, rainbow-colored deposit and etching is a cloudy film. Sometimes there is a water/chemical reaction with certain types of glassware.
o Silica film and etching are permanent and cannot be removed. Both can occur in any automatic dish washing machine and result from a water/chemical reaction with certain types of glassware. They are caused by some combination of:
+Soft or softened water.
+Alkaline washing solution.
+Insufficient rinsing.
+Dishwasher overloading.
+Heat of drying.
+Long/hot cycles.

To slow the down this process:

*Use a minimum amount of detergent but not less than 1 tablespoon per load.
*Use a liquid rinse aid.
*Under load the dishwasher to allow thorough rinsing.
*Do not use heated drying.
*Wash glasses by hand.

Do the following:

1. do you use a rinse agent
2. clean out the drain.
3. if you have a food disposal, run hot water through it and turn it on to clear it out before you turn on the dishwasher. The dishwasher drains into that sink. If you notice food or dirty water backing up into you sink when the dishwasher is draining, then the sink could have a minor clog and is backing up and being re-sprayed onto your dishes.
Source(s):
Use SANIVAC to clean lime deposits and extend the life of your dishwasher. If you have heavy water.

Run your dishwasher empty and pour in a cup of bleach and a cup of white vinegar to get the residue out.....run a regular cycle.......How hot is your hot water tank set on? The hotter the water the better a dishwasher washes and rinses, be careful it's not to hot as your shower and other sinks also will get this hot water......cut your dish soap down and make sure to use a Jet Rinse Aid. Again, be sure to use a liquid soap, and rinse agent, powders will cause a caustic reaction. Hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

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.

Not cleaning dishes


Our Bosch does a pretty good job of washing dishes. But we rinse most of the time. Not a hard rinse, but a rinse.

Are both spray bars rotating? You can test by seeing that the bars rotate easily by hand, and also by starting a cycle and opening the door real quick when you hear the spray hit the door.

Make sure the spray bar nozzles are all clear.

Has it ever done a good job of cleaning dishes?

DI you leave a heavy build-up of food on the dishes, and allow it to dry before washing?

Dirty dishes


Try putting a cup of white vinegar in the empty dishwasher & running it on fast wash. Should eliminate film; do you have hard water where you live? If so lime build up could be the problem.
Hope this helps.Cheers.

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
