Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IRBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

My dishwasher is not quite 2yrs. old and has always worked great until now. Top rack cups and mugs still are dirty inside from coffee, lipstick, etc., glasses have spots and are cloudy, and silverware seems to have streaks and become darker. I always turn hot water on at faucet prior to running dishwasher. I have check the water faucet and it is 120 degrees. After starting the dishwasher I checked and the water is not even 100. After about 20 mins. the water was aprrox. 117 degrees. The inside sides of the stainless steel dishwasher still look brand new, but all of a sudden the door and bottom have white streaks and white blotches. What could be wrong? Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

Based on your description I`d suspect a plugged wash pump.

The place to start for that is to pull the pump filter, spray arm and check for food deposit, broken glass, undesolved detergent and general water deposit built up in the sump well.

The key is to get in there and clean it all out, I`ve attached a link at the bottom that will show you how to go about it. It is not really referring to the heating issue, or maybe even your model, ( Most Whirlpool, Inglis, Kenmore, Kitchen-Aid, Jenn-Air ) but it is the same procedure.

When you`re finished run it through a test cycle and see how it goes.

Let me know how you make out and what you find.

Dishwasher smells even after washing a load of dishes. We rinse all our dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

I have a whirlpool gold quiet three.It has never been used I do not have the instruction manuel. help with starting please


Hello.
If you've just installed a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher, consider yourself truly liberated from the drudgery of standing at the sink washing plate after plate and saucepan after saucepan. You'll find it much easier to keep the kitchen clean as your dirty dishes are hidden away in your new appliance and all you have to do is wipe down the counter tops and switch the dishwasher on when it's full. However, to get the maximum benefit from your new piece of equipment, it's important to use it correctly.

Instructions
MATERIALS NEEDED WHEN OPERATING.
* Dishwasher detergent
* Dishwasher rinse aid
Preparation of Dishes
1 Scrape leftover food off the dishes and make sure no other hard objects such as small bones or toothpicks remain on them.
2 Remove sticky labels from any newly bought food containers you are washing for the first time.
3 Make sure any leftover coffee, tea, soda or wine has been poured out of cups, mugs and glasses.
Loading the Dishwasher
1 Place cups, mugs and glasses in the top rack with the open ends pointing downwards. Cups and mugs should go along the left and right outside edges, with glasses beside them. Position small plates and saucers in holders along the center of the rack running from back to front.
2 Place larger plates and bowls in the bottom rack, which is also where casserole dishes and saucepans should be washed. Avoid overlapping bowls and plates, because it is important every surface is open to the water directed around the dishwasher's interior during the program.
3 Create a flat surface on which to lay saucepans and larger dishes by collapsing some of the plate holders on the bottom rack, if your model dishwasher allows. Lay them open-end down to allow the water to be directed around their interiors.
4 Position dirty saucepans at the rear of the bottom rack with the open end facing the back of the machine's interior, if your machine has a "PowerScour" facility.
5 Place silverware in the silverware basket with sharp items pointing downwards. Alternate the direction in which you load spoons to prevent them "nesting" together, which stops water reaching every surface.
Detergent and Rinse Aid
* 1

Place detergent in the dispenser just when you intend to run the wash cycle, not before. If you're using standard powder or liquid detergent, be guided by the hard-water and soft-water indicators. These are lines marked in the side of the dispenser. In areas with soft water, fill to the soft water line and in hard-water areas fill to the hard water line. If you prefer individual tablets, follow the manufacturer's instructions.
2 Add rinse aid immediately when the rinse aid indicator reaches the "add" level. Turn the cap on the rinse aid dispenser to "refill" and lift it away from the dishwasher. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator reaches the "full" mark and replace the lid. Make sure the lid is tightly in place.
3 Adjust to a higher setting on the arrow adjuster, located inside the dispenser, if you feel more rinse aid is needed during a wash cycle. You can do this by inserting a flat-blade screwdriver into the center of the adjuster.
Starting the Wash
* 1 Check that the spray arms can rotate freely before closing up the dishwasher.
2 Turn on the hot faucet at the sink closest to the dishwasher and let the water run until it is hot.
3 Close the door firmly and select the wash cycle you wish to use. Depending on which model you are using, you may wish to activate additional options during the cycle such as "Power Scour." These options should also be selected at this stage.

Thanks.

Recently glasses started to finish foggy and


MOST OF THE TIME "FOGGY GLASS" IS A RESULT OF SOAP BUILD UO IN THE DISHWASHER. IF YOU HAVE A WATER SOFTENER AND FILL THE SOAP CUP ALL THE WAY THEN THIS IS THE CASE. FILL A COFFEE CUP WITH WHITE VINEGAR AND PLACE IT ON THE UPPER RACK, RUN AN EMPTY LOAD ON HEAVY DUTY WASH, THIS WILL STOP THE PROBLEM, YOU MIGHT NEED TO REPEAT IT 2-3 TIMES BUT IT WILL WORK, AFTER THAT JUST USE AS LITTLE SOAP AS YOU CAN, IN MY GE I USE POWDERED CASCADE BUT ONLY FILL THE SOAP CUO TO THE BOTTOM LINE, WORKS GREAT. GOOD LUCK

Does not remove all food some residue remains after wash cycle


check and make sure that you are getting water too the top rack place a cup or mug upright in the top rack turn the dishywasher on for about 2 minutes you should a least have filled the cup up half way if not to the top. if you are not getting water to the top rack check to make sure that you have enough water in the unit. also before starting the wash you want to point the wash arm in the same direction to make sure that they are turning. Do they turn? when you are finished with a cycle do you see steam or is it cold inside. let me know what you find.

Glasses in top rack not getting clean anymore.


-Have you changed the dishwasher soap recently? What are you using? Is the powder remaining behind in the soap dispenser?
-Have you removed the filter in the sump area, cleaned it and removed any debris under the filter. (watch out for broken glass that is almost always found in 5 year old dishwashers.)

-You are running water at the sink until it gets hot, but you may still have problems if the heating element has failed. Recommend you check that element. If you can get to the element, check resistence of the heater to see if is has any at all.
If heating element checks out good, the next common problem is a failing wash pump motor.

Only some cups on top rack are getting cleaned


It sounds as if you have some rollers missing on the bottom rack which lets the rack sit on the sprayer therefore not letting it spin. You should have 4 rollers on front and 2 on back of rack. If you are missing two on one side, take one from the other side until you can get some more. Just make sure you have a roller on all four sides of the rack
