Hi


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it’s kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.

Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush.

The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.


Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a kenmore dishwasher. I had it checked out by service and there is nothing wrong with it however it leaves a white film on my dishes. What can i do to stop this?


You may try a different detergent, and this may give you some relief. What works best, in my opinion, is to use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get the dishes clean. Cut the added detergent in half, and go downwards from there. We are currently using ~25% of the recommended amount, and the dishes clean up very well, with no residue.
Rinsing excess food off of the dishes prevents the soft food disposer in most new models from being overwhelmed, and will increase the overall performance of your machine over several cycles.
Also, using a good rinse agent will help, as will opening the cabinet door after the drying cycle (while still warm), allowing the dishes to continue to air dry.
Hope that this gives you some relief.

Best regards,

It doesn't get the dishes clean. It has never gotten the dishes clean in the 2 years i have had it. The service man was here while it was under warranty and said there was nothing wrong with it and that...


The service man was telling you to wash the dishes before you put them the machine!

As there is no technical problem, it seems as though you have a poor machine and the only solution is to replace it with another.

Dishes not getting clean. Rinsed off dishes have crud on them after its run


Sorry, I don't have experience with that problem & I'm limited to my experience - I'm not an appliance repair person, just fixed what went wrong with mine & yours sounded kind of similar. I'm sure someone else can help you out.

The top rack of dishes never come clean, but the bottom dishes do. What's wrong with it?


It may be the way you load your dishwasher.
The best way to load it is bowls and small items in front, larger plates in the rear.
