Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IRBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Top shelf not cleaning

No water comes out the very top (small) spinner, and the spinner just below the top shelf does not have enough water pressure to cause it to spin or spray up (some water comes out the lower jets.)

The lower spinner sprays and turns, although maybe not as powerful as it used to. The screen in the bottom below the spinner is clean. Maybe the pump is bad - weak?

The spinner on top of the dishwasher, that I guess shoots out the water is not spinning. I think?


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

DISHES ON TOP RACK ARE NOT GETTING CLEAN TOP SPINNER NOT SPINNING POSSIBLY NOT ENOUGH WATER PRESSURE?


It would help if you provided the make and model of the dishwasher.
Most likely cause of not getting enough water pressure to top rack is the water diverter may be faulty.

Depending on the model - it is a small ball floating in a vertical channel which alternately opens and closes the bottom and top water inlets to the spray arms. Check part at Repair Clinic after selecting make & model of your dishwasher.

The upper shelf of my 17379 dishwasher is not getting water.


check your float switch. Open the door and look on the left or right side, It may look juke a small dome pull that out and clean it. Food particals get stuck on the stem and starts the motor befor it get enough water in the machine to clean the dishes and make enough pressure to get to the top shelf

The dishes on the top shelf does not seem to get clean. Does not appear water is coming out of the top spinning module.


Take out the top spinner and clean it thoroughly with descaler and degreaser / very hot soapy water. Soak it for a while and it will work wonders. Put it back in the machine and it will work like new.

Top shelf dishes are not washed


possibly low water pressure...

racks might be in backwards if it's an older model with wheels on shelf system... rubber bumpers should face out...

could be a blockage in the upper sprayer arm... or the upper arm had come off and was remounted in a position that doesn't line up with the jet of water from below...

could be bad loading technique... sounds simple enough but you should never put large bowls or pots that lay horizontally on the lower rack because it really screws up the cleaning effectiveness. Large items should always go on the top rack or be washed by hand if they don't fit on the top rack.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Hi,
Remove each spray arm and check it is clear of food particlesat the jets. The next problem may occour at the rotating joint . If the seal is not good, you can loose a lot of water out of this point.. If both of these seem reasonable, then yes the circulation pump may need checking. First check for any debris in the impeller, and that it is not worn or damaged, and that it is attached to the motor or the coupling is still good. If these are ok, then the motors='s capacitor may be faulty - causing it to buzz more than normal usually, and it looses efficiency, getting hot in the process.

One of these should solve the problem !

Pour a gallon of white vinegar in bottom run halfway thru wash cycle turn off let unit sit overnight to properly soak-then run a couple of times to rinse out vinegar(vinegar dissolves calcium which causes unit to not function properly) also check unit inlet for contaminates and clean as neccesary install inline filter if not one there..(the hot water tank will tell if you have a calcium problem(hard water problem)shut off unit undo relief valve on tank hook up hose to bottom then drain check for white chunks),calcium wreaks havoc on all household appliances and shortens there lifespan!!! :)

STANDING WATER ON TOP SHELF


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
