Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Not cleaning dishes well at all.

Checked water holes; a couple seemed clogged so I did my best to unclog them and by looking at them, they seem clear. But there's a film getting on all our glassware, food not coming totally off, the soap in the dispenser is smeared on the door like the water is not even washing it all off. I tried a little CLR for calcium, but didn't seem to make a difference. Any ideas?

Dishes on top shelf not getting clean


Check your upper wash arm.... check the holes, especially the ones at the end of the arm. Are they possibly clogged with debris or hard water? This is the usual cause of dishes on the top rack not getting clean. The holes at the end of the wash arm are angled to eject the water at an angle to use the reaction to push the wash arm around. If those holes are clogged, then the arm won't rotate, and only those few dishes or glasses right under the arm will get clean, and the remaining 80% of the dishes on the upper rack won't get clean!

1 Scrape and rinse dishes before putting them in your appliance. Small food particles, grease, sauces and bones clog up the system, keeping the dishwasher from properly rinsing your dishes. You don't need to prewash the dishes but be sure to rinse off any solids.
2 Use a toothbrush to clean around the dishwasher door.
Clean around the seal and hinges of the dishwasher. This area often is forgotten and holds a good deal of bacteria and food splash. A tooth- or bottlebrush is the best way to get into the crevices.
3 Clean chunks of food out of the screen and drain at the bottom of your dishwasher, recommended The Family Handyman. If the drain is plugged, the dirty water can't be washed away and ends up back on your dishes. Nut, bean and seafood shells, bits of plastic and small dishes can lodge against the drain, keeping it from doing its job.
4 Unclog the holes in the sprayer arms. If the holes are blocked by food or soap, water cannot freely spray inside the dishwasher to thoroughly clean the dishes. Leftover food on the dishes can make the dishwasher smell.
5 Keep space around your dishes. Overloading a dishwasher keeps it from running efficiently, allowing gunk to build up around the drain and the spray arms.
6 Run your dishwasher as hot as possible to break down food and grease. The recommended temperature is 120 F.
7 Run the dishwasher with vinegar added to neutralize odor. Empty the dishwasher, place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with white vinegar on the top rack, and run a cycle at the hottest setting. If you prefer, use unsweetened lemonade powder or baking soda in place of vinegar.

Yellow head seems to be clogged...how to unclog the printer head


On my Dell, I usually remove the cartridge and soak it for about five minutes in a dish of shallow, hot water, then gently dry with a paper towel. Then I run a couple of cleaning cycles. Occasionally, I have to repeat the process. This almost always gets it going again. Hope this helps!

How do I clean the water jets in the dish washer?


If you have the patience and time, you can use a toothpick to unclog all those little holes.

Most likely the clogging is a result of a combination of slightly hard water and food particles, etc.

I've found that you can use some readily available dishwasher cleaning solutions to help clean it out. You run an empty machine through a complete cycle with the solution (available at most big box and appliance stores, etc.) and it will help disolve the gunk in the sprayer arms, as well as help remove any stains on the top, sides, and bottom of the tub.

I've also used white vinegar added to the wash cycle, once the DW is full of water (I add in 2 cups of white vinegar to the wash water) without any dishwashing detergent, and is seems to helps disolve any deposits in places I can't get to by hand

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Dishes are not getting clean


If the spray arms are not being blocked by a dish or a piece of flatware then you may have a valve that is not letting enough water through to get the job done. water condition may clog the valve and energy efficiency mandates using less water so some valves are made with smaller holes today. A little knowledge that may be helpful when seeking a solution to your problem. Good luck.

ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.
