Testimonial: "Thank you. I had no idea where to start looking, I kept all the manuels that came with dishwasher but they offer little information. Buying a heating element is something that I will try right away. I was scaried that our dishwasher was going to end up being unused or having to call repair person."

Tip

General Dishwasher cleaning


There are 3 types of energy used to clean the dishes a balance of all three are needed for the best results.

Chemical Energy - The detergent you use plays a big role in the cleaning ability. Phosphates do a great job but as new regulations come into play phosphates are being phased out. Detergent can get 'old' and loose it's cleaning ability. It has a short life span, so buy detergent in small quantities. If you have hard water you will need to use more detergent or even an additive like lemi shine or Glass Magic to assist with the chemical energy. Detergents for automatic dishwashers have a no sudsing agent to reduce foam and suds. Rinse aid plays an important role in eliminating spots and drying the dishes, yes drying. The rinse agent helps sheet the water off the dishware prior to the dry cycle, there is a product called Turbo Dry that can be used in place of rinse agent that works great for drying plastic. In summary use detergent like Cascade or Electrosol and a rinse aid

Thermal Energy - Hot water is important for both dissolving/activating detergent and breaking down food residue so it can come clean from the dishware. It will help to run the hot water faucet at the kitchen sink until hot before starting a cycle in the dishwasher. If cleaning is a problem use the Pots and pans or High Temp wash

Mechanical Energy - This is done by water pressure against the dishware, be sure to load properly, do not stack or shadow other dishware, be aware of where the spray arms on your dishwasher and make sure you do not block them when loading. If you have a filter in the unit, clean it often, if you do not you may still need to clean out the sump on occasion. The spray arms may get food or deposits in the small jets (holes) that the water needs to come out. Inspect and clean as needed.

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent...


the best way to use your dishwasher is the way it was designed.
if your unit has a compartment for jet dry or rinse agent then you should add and fill that compartment with rinse aid. try not to buy soap with any extra like soap with jet dry or shine plus . because when you fdo that sometimes customer think that they dont need rinse agent . big mistake. rinse agent is deposited at a certain time in the cycle. diod you know that is you use lets say jet dry and a soap with shine plus or rinse aid in soap the machine can over suds? as a tech trust me i have seen it.let me know if i was helpful. drop a 4thumbs up post

Once the cycle is complete (rinse, drying, end) the dishes are clean but not dry.


#1 plastic dishes cups etc will rarely completely dry
check your heater, check for continuity on the heater it should ohm out.
does the heater get hot?
are you running hot water at the sink before pushing the start button?
are you using a rinse agent such as jet dry?

Older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. I have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent? D. Wickes


Hi landwix,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. You have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent?

Operation is simple and yes it will take rinse agent if you so desire. Rinse agent can be purchased either liquid, dry or combined with the soap in a tablet (I don't recomend). The dry comes in a tiny basket you hang from the upper rack. The liquid goes in the dispencer next to the soap dispencer. Just twist the plug counter clockwize about 1/4 turn and lift out, pour in no more than 4 oz. slowly and replace plug. Forget about it for a month. It will use a few drops with each use. Fill soap dispencer about half full and close. Choose wash cycle (normal, etc.) then press start. Thats it.

Feel free contact me again!

Not Drying


I found that if the rinse agent (Jet Blue) has run out the dishes stay wet.
