Do you have the operating instructions for your dishwasher. If not, open the door and there should be a manufacturer's badge on the inside of the door somewhere. Find out what model machine you have. I can help you find a manual online.
A couple of general tips for your info.
Wipe or rinse excess food particles from dishes before you stack them in machine.
Stack neatly and spaced apart to give better wash results.
Make sure dishes and pot handles are clear of the sprinklers. Turn sprinklers by hand and make sure they dont hit against anything.
I prefer using dishwashing tablets as they are a measured amount. Best not to use too much soap or powder.
If you are using powder, use rinse aid along with it.
Dont put your crystals or good wine glasses in the dishwasher.
Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
Do you have a water softner? If so you are using to much soap in your machine. Go to wal-mart and buy a container of dishwasher clean ( it is by the rinse aids) run that through to remove any excess soap and then cut down on the amount of detergent that you are using. 1-2 tablespoons only.
I had the same issue and you will never beleive the solution.
Steps to follow:
1) run one full cycle with no dishes or soap
2) run one full cycle with a dishwasher cleaner like Jetdry
3) run one full cycle with a gallon of white vinager
4) never put soap in the extra in and only fill the main soap bin half way.
should work fine from here on out, but never fill main bin more then half way when you do dishes. also run the hot water in the sink until the water is very hot before starting the dish washer.
Your question is: how to use liquid dish soap in the kenmore dishwasher?and which place in dishwasher?
I think it prudent we are first clear on terminology. Based on your discription of your "dish soap", please be certain it says "dishwasher soap". If it doesn't say "dishwasher" on it then it's not meant for your dishwasher.
For a standard american dishwasher the soap goes into a small cmpartment in the door. Just open door fully and you will see the rectangular box on the left. Soap in, then close box. The dishwasher will open it on the second cycle.

grab a can of morton salt let it fill and start to wash open the door and throw a hand full of salt into the machine try to hit as much of the tub as you can
start the machine and let it start to wash
and salt again and let it start to wash
hit cancel and let it drain
you may have to repeat this a couple of times but the salt will nutralize the soap and you will not have to buy a new one
AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.
