The model number may be on a label located in the door jamb, probably along the top. If not try removing the lower panel (below the door.) You may find a placard there.

I have a kenmore dishwasher. I had it checked out by service and there is nothing wrong with it however it leaves a white film on my dishes. What can i do to stop this?


You may try a different detergent, and this may give you some relief. What works best, in my opinion, is to use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get the dishes clean. Cut the added detergent in half, and go downwards from there. We are currently using ~25% of the recommended amount, and the dishes clean up very well, with no residue.
Rinsing excess food off of the dishes prevents the soft food disposer in most new models from being overwhelmed, and will increase the overall performance of your machine over several cycles.
Also, using a good rinse agent will help, as will opening the cabinet door after the drying cycle (while still warm), allowing the dishes to continue to air dry.
Hope that this gives you some relief.

Best regards,

Kenmore Elite dishwasher will not dissolve soap or wash well.


Temperature should be 140F. and the units heater should energize during fill to achieve this.

Dishes and glasses are not coming out clean even inside of dishwasher has some residue left on it after washing


Most dishwashers have a soil separator which separates the soil from the water while it's washing. When a wash cycle is over a valve opens in the separator to allow the soil to go down the drain. If it's not working properly the washer will leave a film or food particles on the dishes.
Post your model number and I'll try to find a diagram which shows you your parts.

Dishwash


sometimes those dispensers become defective,, make sure nothin is obstructing it from opening possibly dishes or rack attachments,, if not then u will need to order a new dispenseer assembly if this is a whirlpool built kemore,,,( kenmore just puts there name on aplliances, they dont build them) just to let u know if u didnt know already...

deteremine your model number go to sears online check out there parts and service page and research parts by puttin in your model number and determine the part number for your model ,,,, i believe they vary from 20 to 60 dollars ,, this is somethin you could do just have to get part and seperate the panles by removing the screws all around the inside door.. hope this helps

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.

Dishes not rinsing well,


I would check the bottom drain area. Sometimes food can stay down there and block the drain or get back around onto the next load.

Dishwasher is not washing dishes.


Make sure your water is at least 120 degrees and change to a dishwasher detergent with a water softener and a rinse aid in it.
