Hi,

Below is a link showing how to clean out the sump area below the spray arms. If you want to clean the top filter when taking it apart, vinegar works to dissolve a lot of the deposits.

I have a kenmore elite dishwasher model 665. it is several years old, and within the last year, it leaves food particles in glasses, etc... i tried different detergents and switched back and forth...


There should be a filter in the bottom under the spray arm. There should be 4 to 8 screws to remove to get to the filter, and clean.

Tip

How to Maintain your dishwasher.


There are a few simple things to do to your dishwasher to maintain it in good working order and to avoid any service call outs.

1. Firstly on a monthly basis you should check and clean the filter located in the sump of the unit.
Make sure all the water has drained out of the unit and remove the filter and give it a good clean and remove any foreign particles you may find in the sump.

2. In the unit there are 3 spray arms. These are the moving parts of the dishwasher that actually spray water out and do the cleaning. If any of the tiny holes in the spray arms are blocked up with foreign particles or food you will end up with poor wash results.
Each of these arms are removable and should be checked and cleaned on a regular basis. To clean the spray arms poke the holes with a pick of some sort and wash them under the tap.

Make sure the spray arms are fitted back correctly and are tightened back in place. Make sure they can also freely spin.

3. You should also see depending on your dishwasher model some sort of drain pump. If it is accessible like in the model above make sure there is nothing wrapped around the drain pump or something that could obstruct the drain pump from turning and draining the water away.

4. Make sure any fittings inside the unit are tight and not loose as the unit could then cause a water leak internally.

5. The screws around the door frame tend to work loose with time and also may need a tighten up.

6. A dishwasher is not a sink errator and cannot take away anything other than food that it can liquify. I recommend that you scrape your plates prior to loading the dishwasher.
You don't have to rinse them as the detergent needs some dirt and sauce to stick too
If you break a plate or glass remove the filter and clean it and have a look in the sump for the broken part.

If food does get in to the unit most of it will get caught in the filter but food can still get past this and can cause further problems where you need a service technician to remove the circulation pump and free up the pump.

Hope this helps.

Food gets stuck on dishes especially in the top rack.


There is a waste filter in the bottom under the lower spray arm that needs to be cleaned periodically. If you are not cleaning it, it may be redepositing food particles on your dishes.
remove and clean the filter, and see if that helps.

KitchenAid Dishwasher (model KUDS01IJBL) has black gunk inside


That black gunk is caused by soap deposits and food particles that do not get washed down the drain. This all collects in the area around the door gasket and front of the wash tub and forms a sticky black sludge. You need to periodically clean the interior of the dishwasher out with a non-abrasive cleaner with some bleach in it to kill bacteria. You should also check the wash pump sump (located under the lower spray arm) to make sure it is not being clogged with food and debris. In order to access the pump sump, you will need to perform the following:

1. Remove the lower wash rack and lower spray arm.

2. Remove the upper wash rack and spray arm.

3. Locate the screws holding in the upper spray feed tube. Remove the screws to the feed tube and turn the whole assembly 1/4 turn to the right (CW direction). The entire assembly will unlock from the wash pump assembly and lift out.

4. Remove the strainer assembly (known as an accumulator) that covers the pump sump area.

Inspect the sump area for food particles and debris that may be contributing to the mess inside the wash tub. If you need some guidance, pcappliancerepair.com has some very helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you.

If you have any questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Food particles left on dishes


Many times this caused by food particles clogging the screen or blocking the jets on the spray arms. Find the screen in the bottom of your machine and clean it out. If this doesnt help, remove the spray arms and clean them out.

How do i remove cover on food chopper? kenmore 665 the problem is top shelf dishes not getting clean. looking to clean out bottom area,thanks


Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it.
Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier.
Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.

No Spray


Wow, you've done a lot of work. I wouldn't break the seal around the bottom. If water gets in the motor then your in big trouble. You can try to clean the spray arms out. I was just in my kitchen trying to get the dishwasher to work with the door open to see the arms spray water, but I couldn't do it. Just a little experiment I wanted to try. I told my wife I was trying to help solve a problem and you can image what happened from there .... Let me see if I can find a manual.
