I was having a different issue with the same model but I think my issues solution might help yours. My dishwasher was not draining properly. It was the air gap that sits on top of the counter by the sink. It was clogged. We removed it and cleaned it out. Maybe if your air gap is slightly clogged as well it is not allowing the dirty water to flow out properly leaving you with gritty dishes. Hope this helps.

Our Kenmore was doing the same thing, whereas the water temperature was too low....Someone turned down our dial on the water-heater. Turned it up and now all is fine.....

Grit left on dishes


The arms do accumulate gunk that clogs the sprayers. Disassembly, cleaning and reassembly are not difficult.
However, I think that your problem may be in the main filter and strainer, which are located around the base of the bottom arm. Download the diagram of the model and remove, clean and reassemble. My bet is that you'll find a layer of sediment in the filter that can be removed with a soft brush and running water.

If you have pets that shed, be ready to find fur in the filter.

Grit in clean glasses and on dishes


Mary do you have a water softener? If so, only use 1 tablespoon of dry dishwashing detergent per wash. Don't use tablets or liquid soaps. Too much soap will wear down the items you wash, leave streaks and pock your dishes. That might be what the sandy grit is. Also, to get rid of the grit inside of your washer you can buy a special dishwasher cleaner at almost any hardware store. Always try to use a rinse-aid. Make sure your drain filters are clean. Hope this helps. Jewels
