Dishwasher not cleaning properly


There are many reasons why a dishwasher does not work correctly. A repairman told me to always check for debris (food, coins,lids, hard things lost in the dishwasher). You can take the screw off the arm that turns on the bottom level and search under there for anything stuck (even pieces of bone) the dishwasher has several other food filters in the motor assembly but this first one is easy to get to. I would let a repairman fix the motor, but as he said this easy fix is a possibility.

The pump/motor assembly on these dishwashers have a soft food cutter that helps to cut up smal soft food particles. This may be your problem.

These cutter blades can sometimes get loose or something can get hung up in them like a broken piece of glass or some other pieces of trash that they can not handle.

You can access these blades by removing the sump cover near the rear of the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. remove the bottom rack and take a couple of screws out of the sump cover. you can feel down in the sump and see if there is any trash caught up here or in the blades.

If this is not the problem and you have an older dishwasher - you could have a problem with a loose fan blade in the motor. If this is the case I would run it til it dies. The motor/pump assembly is about $125+. The newer motors are a lot quieter.

If everything is working ok. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I do believe most manufacturers recommend emptying the strainer after each wash (much like you would a lint filter on a clothes dryer). With the door open, look inside on the bottom. You should see a plastic cylinder shape about 2-3" in diameter. Twist it counterclockwise and gently pull up. This traps large pieces of food, and the occasional piece of plastic wrap, toothpicks, etc. that seem to get past the kiddos when they load it. If you find large amounts of food particles, I suggest pre-rinsing pots, pans, plates before placing them in. Good luck, and please keep us informed of the progress on this concern.

Inside of dishwasher was dirty after cycle, baskets had black in between the screen...took out all bottom and found dirty water, a couple of inches and slime in bottom...cleaned it all out and put it back...


Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.

Dishes on top rack do not come out clean. Bottom rack O.K.


Have you tried cleaning the filter? We had a similar problem. The repair man came and removed all the spinners and the other stuff at the bottom above the motor to get to the filter. It was blocked with all kinds of old food bits and pieces, the odd bit of plastic film etc. He cleaned it, replaced it and we havn't had a problem since but he said it needs to be done about every two years. It can be done by someone who has reasonable DYI skills.

Smells fishy


You probably have rotting food scraps in the food trap. Take the bottom arm off, remove the filter, and clean. You can also add some bleach to the bottom of the tank and run the dishwasher empty to sanitize the inside. Run a second empty load to rinse. This should help rid the dishwasher of the nasty smell.

Food particles on washed plates


Sometime food particles stick near the door gasket. First, try changing the DW soap brand.

Black stuff in the bottom of the dishwasher


That black or gray stuff you're talking about is actually a combination of old food particles and soap deposits. The stuff builds up in the corners of the lower front areas of the tub and right under the inside of the door where it closes over the tub front. These areas can develop "scungy" deposits because these are areas that the dishwasher doesn't always clean and/or water remains pooled. A little routine cleaning about once a week around the bottom lip of the door and the door gasket with a damp sponge will prevent this build up. Hope this helps you.
