Generally, you need only hot water. It is advisable that the drain line be a little lower than used by a washer. Drains usually go into a modified portion of the sink's j bend in the drain. This sits at about 18 inches off the floor. You should fuse your electric line for 20 amps at 120 volts or 15 amps at 240, depending on your location. North American units are at 120.

The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that the outlet pipe the pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe or the pump or selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

After dishwaher cycle complted water still remains


There is possibly a partial blockage in the outlet, preventing the water from draining out in the preset time. Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

There is a brown film all over inside of dishwasher. I have to put it on power scrub for my dishes to get clean.


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool dishwaher, and it turned out that my water softener was not working. Once that was resolved, I found that I have to use a rinsing agent in the dishwaher to completely eliminate spots on the cleaned dishes.

Can I take the bottom part of the dishwaher apart


Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.

The water pipes rattle violently in the beginning of the cycle.


My Kenmore 16464 dishwasher caused a buzz in the water pipes at the start of the cycle that I thought was just water hammer. It turned out to be a bad water inlet valve on the dishwasher that has water hoses (inlet and outlet) attached plus has an electrical connector. It is located near the front left underneath the tub. I pulled the dishwaher out and replaced it and all is quiet again. - Jim

If you new home doesn't already have a branch line for a dishwaher, I'd get a plumber to install a copper T on the existing line then a second shut-off valve for the dishwasher. If there is ever a problem with the dishwasher, you can shut off its water supply without intrupting the sink water.

Do you have a garbage disposal? It is usually easier to drain through the garbage disposal. There is a fitting for this on all disposals. Be sure to remove the knock out plug first.
