What is the correct water level in a kitchenaid dishwasher?

There is a float inside, the float should be nearly to the shut off position when the dishwasher is full. If it isn't add water until it's about 2 inches deep, or within 1/2 inch of overlowing the front of the dishwasher. Run a cycle and see if your dishes are cleaner. If so, then the likely problem is with the water pump. Take this off, clean all screens and soak in Lime-Away or something similar and reinstall. In all probabilty if the dishwasher doesn't fill, there is dirt in the pump screen or buildup in the pump itself. If this does not fix the water level, then a new pump may be necessary (around $20-$40 on eBay).

You need to add a rinse agent to your unit. In some areas you need to add salt to reduce hard water deposits.

As your unit is new you will have the original instruction book. It will tell you where to add rinse agent and deal with hard water etc.

Start there I think you will find your solution.

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher in not rinsing leaves alot of stuff behind

did you try the four step aproach?
1. make sure hot water is going to the unit .or let the water faucet run for 2-3 min.
2. add and fill jet dry until it cant go anymore.trick:add then close compartment door,then raise and lower door 3times then you will be able to add more rinse agent because the air is pushed out.
3.add the correct dishwashing soap
4.start machine when it start to wash the steam should come out when you check and open the door .
if you do all of things and it does not help start to check the water coming into unit, make sure the water coming in is correct. last sthing if all else fail then check to see if the water is dripping from the topof the unit when it is washing. If it is not then you probably have a circulation pump that is going bad.

Dishwasher Not washiig properly suspect upper spray arm is

the most common problem is low water pressure.when you start the dishwasher check the amonut of water in the bottom of the dishwasher there should be about an inch of water in the bottom.
if needed add some more water to the unit and see what happens this can determine if the fill valve is bad,or the control board.if the unit washes change the fill valve or check your water pressure,if there is no change then the main wash motor needs to be change because it is not putting enough water through the system to properly wash.

Water coming in stops short of the proper level - not enough water comming in to clean properly. I have to add water.

most dishwashers fill level is determined by time.
If the water pressure is to low, or the flow is restricted by sand or rust cloging the water valve, the unit will not fill with enough water to clean the dishes.

if you are willing to try, and you can use basic hand tools, you might be able to clean a clogged water valve.
first make sure the ELECTRICAL POWER to the unit is up-plugged or turned off. turn off water supply.

Valve is located under unit most can be reached by removing panel on lower front of unit. disconnect water pipe at valve and look for a filter screen inside the valve, remove it, clean it, reinstall it. now reconnect water pipe, and turn water and power back on look under unit and check for water leaks before reinstalling panel.

Hotpoint dishwasher buzz when turned on an thats all it does

If the buzz stops when you open the door it could be the water solenoid valve which if it is not filling with water there is a 90% chance it is the valve. Turn off the water supply going the dishwasher under the sink or by the pipe. Pull the dishwasher out and unplug it if the hose length allows it to pull out. Put a towel or pan under the dishwasher hose connection disconnecting the hose on the dishwasher valve. Remove the racks and tip the unit forward with the unit unplugged and unbolt the valve where the water inlet is connected. Undo the hose clamp and wire connector. Check the valve or order a replacement and reinstall clamps and connectors. Be very careful when using the unit the first few times that no water leaks from hose connections by using a tissue touching the connections to see if water is present. Mold sucks so use a flash light looking in the front panel and tissue even after replacing the unit back in its final place.

Open the dishwaser while still filling now keeps going to error

After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.
