Bad soap residue

My Kitchenaid dishwashers (drawer and reg.) are not cleaning my dishes. I have tried several different soaps but all leave a terrible soap residue. The main dishwasher lost the "cap" to the rinse aid dispenser - it fell off during a wash and got melted in the bottom, but that doesn't explain why my DWD isn't working right. Any suggestions?

Poor cleaning on this model is often due to debris in the sump area of the pump that blocks water flow to the spray arms. I have put together some instructions on how to clean this out. Follow the link and let me know if this helps.

Try getting some calcium, lime and rust remover. Follow the instructions on the bottle and run the dishwasher empty using only the CLR. Check your incoming water lines for calcium or lime build up.

It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Dishwasher not washing and leaving residue on dishes


We have the same problem with the soap dish. I found that we have to be careful how the dishes are in the bottom rack. Sometimes the dishes will block the cover on the soap dispenser and keep it from opening.

Left over soap residue in glasses


you need to flush out the dishwasher, fill a cup with vinager and put it in the dishwasher standing up, then run the dishwasher thru a heavy duty cycle with no dishs. Then cut back on your soap, with new dishwashers and soaps you dont need much at all

HElp Dishes not coming clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.

KUDS01FKSS dishwasher not cleaning


One thing to check is soap usage. Newer dishwashers use less water and require less soap. Too much soap will redeposit on dishes. Try halving soap usage. Also run hot water in sink until it gets hot before running dishwasher. I have a Whirlpool. Same thing. Works great. If your water is hard add more detergent.
