A quality s/s cleaner and a clean cloth sould do the trick for most stains, WD-40 also works to remove the stains, works really well, also leaves afilm on the metal to prevent stains from adhering, just dont use paper towells, the tend to leave fibers behind. and also look closely at the s/s there is a GRAIN pattern in the metal just like wood would have a grain!! be sure to wipe in the direction with the grain not against.

The door is getting rusty. I believed that stainless steal didn't rust. Is there a way I can remove the spots?


Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

To remove rust go to this site.

Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools.

-it can discolors stainless steel. To avoid damage to the finish of your stainless steel appliance, do not allow these substances to remain on the steel finish:MUSTARD,TOMATO JUICE,MARINARA SAUCE,CITRUS-BASED SAUCES,CITRUS-BASED PRODUCTS.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher in black. Can you please tell me if it's possible to get a door cover so that it can match my new stainless steel appliances? If so where would I get this?thanks


yes it is! Appliance Art has stainless panels if you have the type of dishwasher that lets you slide out old panel and insert new one. For the other types of dishwasher they sell stainless "rolls" that are applied over your current black. They were just on DIY network and HGTV. www.applianceart.com

Stainless panel for Kenmore 3631532 dishwasher?


I have two options for you to consider. One is to take your panel to any sheet metal fabricating shop and have them make a stainless steel version for you. The other is to get a spray can of stainless steel appliance paint and apply it. i have used the stainless steel paint on entire appliances with excellent results.

I'm not sure about some of those appliances but ApplianceArt.com maybe able to help you. They sell stainless panels as well as the Softmetal adhesive stainless that's been on HGTV's "I Want that," "Design on a Dime," and "Real Estate Intervention." And I think some others.

How to clean stainless steel


You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

Replacement Door Panel for GE Profile Dishwasher


Are you trying to replace the microwave door or the GE dishwasher. Either way, www.applianceart.com (under the stainless steel section) has this roll of stainless material that you apply to your appliances. I saw it on the "Today Show." Its basically faux stainless. We put it on our refrigerator and it looks and even feels like real stainless steel. Its really cool. I think its called stainless foil or something like that. Also if you're looking for a stainless panel for your dishwasher they sell actual stianless panels there too.
