Does kitchenaid kudm03ftss have a filter to be cleaned


Below the bottom roll out dish rack is a perforated screen or series of screens made of either plastic or stainless steel. That's the filter. Should be cleaned out after each use but if you rinse off dishes before a wash cycle it's doubtful it will be dirty. It's usually removable with little more than a thumb pull.

The lower spray arm on my ASKO 1805 dishwasher has stopped turning, the dishes are still getting washed, so fluid still goes through the sytem, and drains at the end, the heater works. When turning, t


If the arm spins easily by hand, but won't spin when operating, that points to poor water delivery...
1) check the strainer. Not just the holey one you can see, but there might well be a very fine mesh filter under it ~ if so, remove it to clean it (it can appear clean, but still be clogged with transparent cellulose fibres). Try running the machine empty without the strainer/filter fitted. You should hear a difference if the filter was causing the problem.
2) you might have a weak impeller. After a while the plastic impeller on some machines just wears away, leaving insufficient fins to move the water, this can be accelerated by e.g. broken glass stuck in the pump. Impellers can also slip on the motor shaft; the motor's spinning but the impeller doesn't. This means removing the machine, turning it over and removing the pump for inspection...

I have a maytag jetclean quiet pack dishwasher. The top dishes are not getting clean. The glasses always have sandy residue in them and sometimes orange juice etc at the bottom of the glass isn't removed....


Possible that the pump is not working well to spray and inject with good pressure so that the dishes are spot clean.
You will need to simulate the washer without any dish and checck the performance to understand the fault areas.
The middle section also must spray well another reason your dishes are not clean when kept low.
The entire system has to be taken out and the water flow sections must be cleaned. the pump must work and spray with high pressure or else it must be clogged , the reason for sluggish spray.
So check the inlets, the water lines and the pump.
The rest sems fine.

Dishes, glasses on the top rack dont get cleaned. The bottom rack is fine. What may be the problem?


Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean


Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

Not enough water pressure to move upper arms or clean dishes


Recommend you pull the bottom spray arm straight up, then out of the DW.
Remove 9 phillips screws that hold the filter shroud down. Remove the filter and clean/rinse it out.
While the filter it out, grab a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area. Especilly in the area the has the check valve that rotates (Vario motor-driven) to feed the water pressure either to the lower and then the upper arms. Watch out for broken glass! Also, inspect the impeller to see if it is undamaged and spins easily.
Reassemble, then test out.
If problems remain, the the wash pump motor is probably the culprit. Do you get any error messages on the time display?
Good Luck!

Dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine


The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

Fine gritty residue on dishes, particularly on glasses


alm84, Are you using a brand name powder like Electrosol or Cascade? Try that first. Seriously, it makes a difference.
When you say your water temp is within the recommended temp for the detergent manufacturer, do you mean the water heater temp at the sink tap is 120 degrees? MOST problems with cleaning that are not caused by generic detergent or plugged filter/debris in the impeller area are caused by a failed heating element. No kidding, it makes a BIG difference and once it is repaired, you will see an immediate difference.
glenda, First try this: remove the lower spray arm and the filter and assembly. Clean everything in the sink and with a flashlight, inspect everywhere for "chunks" that is probably causing the noise.
Reassemble and test. If dishes still do not get clean, check the heating element, replace if needed.
If that does not fix the problem, you will need to replace the main wash motor/impeller.
Good Luck!
Please update me with what you both find. OK?

Dishes not getting clean, left with gritty residue. Could the filter be backed; if so how do I fix it?


Had the same problem with a GE Nautilus 3400 series.
Solution:

- In their manual, GE recommends not stacking tall dishes on the bottom right tray - this prevents the dishwashing powder from fully dissolving. Are you using the right detergent and rinse-agent ?

If your upper arm is not turning during wash (DW leaves residue on top-shelf items), do the following:

1) Empty the DW.

2) Pull down the rotating arm on the DW ceiling. Thoroughly clean the passageways (I had to tap it on the counter to break-down the sediments).

3) Inspect the mesh-screen filter located on the floor in the back - if it's backed up (ours was backed-up from the inside), you'll need to clean it by removing 4, 1/4" screws holding it to the DW floor and throughly cleaning it (I also unscrewed the plastic valve located on the bottom of the filter compartment). While you're at it, remove the plastic mesh on the DW floor (2 screws) and fish for any objects and sediments blocking the pump.

4) Replace filter and bottom mesh and operate the DW in "Rinse" mode.

5) Press the rotating arm back in and operate the DW in "Rinse" mode. Check rotation.

- Good Luck !
