Hiya,
Please clean filter in the bottom of the machine.
Even can clean out the pump. than start a wash empty and as soon as it has filled up put 3 cups of vinegar in the machine. Let it run on hot.
this should fix the problem
Also please take out the arms and make sure all the holes are not obstructed.
This is a simple way of cleaning but effective

We have a Kenmore Elite 630.16304401 dishwasher, lately we are getting small black greasy spots on the plastic dishes, also same spots on the plastic parts in the sump where you clean the filter? We h


A couple of thoughts:

1) It could be a gasket somewhere starting to break down. Check your door seal.

2) Food particles could have gotten caught somewhere in the drain hose, or something, and then turned black with mold and bacteria, then when you wash, they get siphoned back into the dishwasher if the flap which composes the anti-siphon check valve on the drain hose is starting to stick open.

Try putting a cup of bleach in the top rack and run a complete cycle with no other dishes in it. Then, load up some plastic dishes and wash them as normal. See if that helps. If it does, replace your check valve.

Also, insure that your drain hose is looped up above the bottom of your sink to prevent debris from your garbage disposal backing up into your dishwasher.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Black tar balls in Kenmore model #665.13722K600


No, don't run Coca-Cola in it! I would call a repairman immediately - you may have a rubber hose that is disintegrating, and you dishwasher could start leaking seriously!

The water seems to not be hitting the top row of dishes and the dishwasher has gotten louder, end result not cleaning the dishes


Best to chck the water pump which could be partially blocked and not sending water to the top spray feed.

It would be helpful to have the full model number in order to identify the part numbers etc.

Dishwasher soap is not dissolving.


Hello,
Try emptying the dishwasher and putting a few tablespoons of vegatable oil in the bottom. Run the cycle without soap and no dishs. Often dish soap (palmolive) builds up and creates soap suds that won't go away during a normal cycle. The oil binds with the soap residue to get rid of it. It worked for my Kenmore. I know do it every few months. Good Luck!!!

Does not get dishes clean


There is a filter/trap located at the bottom of the machine held in place by 2 1/4 screws. This trap will be located at the lowest point in the dishwasher. Once the two screws are removed there is a lower tub that may have a bit of food debris in it. Sometimes there is food particles that do not get flushed out into the drain. Clean this area and you should be in good shape

How to drain liquid chlorine?


Get as much as you can out with a towel, then flush the rest with cold water. Just pour it in and dry it out with a towel until you are able to pour water in it and it go out the dispenser like normal. After you have gotten the dispenser cleaed out you will need to get the detergent out of the machine before using it. Start a cycle with cold water. Let it start washing, when you see suds forming pour in a little vegetable cooking oil. This will kill the suds. Keep doing this through the cycle. After the suds are gone and the cycle is done, run it through another cycle with hot water. If you have no suds you are done. If It still suds up by the end of that cycle, run the cold wash and vegetable oil again.

You should be ok by running one cold and one hot, just watch it and add a little oil to kill the suds.

The cooking oil trick works with dishwashers too if you ever put the wrong detergent in them.

Please reply if you need any more help.
