We have a kenmore elite 66516593200 that has been leaving grid in some galsses and cup. Any ideas why or how to fix this?


the grit is from the detergent , maybe your using too much for your cycle , ck your owners book for proper amount , in older diswashers the spray arms stop moving and jam up this does same thing and dishes arnt being cleaned , i use the masking tape test , place one piece of tape to end point of basket and stickit dont wrap it to wire basket (bottom) , close up door and run on wash for 15-30 seconds if tapes are not loose then arms arnt moving and need attention or replacemnt

Why are the items on bottom rack not being cleaned properly


If is clean dishes in the upper basket, I conclude that the pump produces enough pressure what means that the lower spray arm for some reason does not rotate and because that washing result is bad. Before washing I would check the lower spray arm rotates freely and after that open the door during washing and check if the lower spray arm rotates. Sometimes, the holes in the spray arm clog and disable turning which leads to poor washing results in the lower basket.

Hi there, I have an ESL424 Electrolux dishwasher and I'm having some problems with it not washing dishes properly. Is there any common reason for this? The problem seems to be more apparent in the top...


first thing is to ensure the top spray arm is turning freely. make sure nothing is blocking it, for example one of them dishwasher fresheners.

also check the holes on both spray arms to ensure they not blocked up, also if you can remove the spray arms and clean them out, also clean out the filter.

i also always susjest putting the upper basket on the highest setting as high plates etc. in the bottom basket can stop spray arm turning

after checking all of the above, put the spray arms in the 12 o clock posistion and turn the dishwasher on, when it starts washing open the door to see if they have moved.

also always use a good quality diswasher tablet, cheaper ones dont always give good wash results.

The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the larger grey clip that you just unscrewed. Then press the prongs on the white clip into the hole on the arm and snap it back together. Then you can screw the assembly back into the ceiling of the washer.

If this problem persists, you will likely need to replace the white plastic clip. (which is where I am at right now with my washer).

Check the spray arms are not clogged as well as the top one take off the bottom one clear a hole underneath the arm. make sure the arms can turn freely. dishwasher fresheners hanging on the basket can stop the arm turning. clean the filter in the bottom.

I have a bosch dishwasher silence , when it finishs wash i open the door and find the tablet falling on the bottom or hanging on the container of the tablet part, which did not use at all..please advise,...


Check top basket is straight and moves back fully, remove top spray arm and check holes are not blocked. The water pressure from the top arm is deminished if they are blocked and once the dispenser door opens it is the top spray arm water that propels the tab into the tank. Also, check that when your tallest item is in the bottom basket it does not obstruct the rotation of the top one.
Hope this helps to give you a starting point to remedy fault.

Seal round door leaks


If the water is noticed at the bottom of door it is probably the seal at the bottom (very unusual for the tank seal to leak, however it is just pushed in, so you could take it completely off, give it a clean up and put it back in) or one of the spray arms is restricted and instead of rotating the water is spraying continually at the corner of the door. Check all hole in the spray arms are clear and if you have a dishwasher freshener make sure it is not stopping the top spray arms rotation field. You could also check that the top arm is clear to move when your dinner plates are in the bottom basket (the top basket could have been moved inadvertently to the lower level).
Hope this gives you a starting point for checks.
ps bottom door seal is quite tricky to replace, so you may need to get an expert is the above tests indicate that that is the leak source.

Water left in bottom dishwasher and after resetting to wash will not start unless the water is drained out manually


GE Dishwashers are equipped with an anti-syphon ball that generally dislodges itself and goes into the drain line. To remove it, you'll have to pull it out of it's hole. Turn the supply off and open the kick plate. Remove the supply line from the dishwasher and the drain line free from the air gap. Remove the two screws that hold it to the counter top and pull it out. Remove the lower rack and spray arm. To remove the spary arm you have a 1/4 inch head screw to undo, and on the back of the spary arm is a plastic clip. Use a small screwdriver to depress from the spray arm and pull the spray arm off. There are then two 1/4 inch screws that hold the food screen on and remove the basket. Now, underneath the dishwasher is a large manilla-colored hose with a large hose clamp that must be loosened. Pull this loose and a bit of water as well as the ball will come out. Reattach and drop the ball into the left hole under the basket. Reconnect everything and slide the dishwasher back in. Reinstall drain hose and supply line. Turn on supply. Run and look for leaks.

Upper Spray Arm Fell Off


If you are referring to the arm on the top of the dishwaser (not the one under the top basked) it snaps in. What probably happened is that it fell off and the plastic nut flipped around. The gray plasting thing on the top (that looks like a flower) will unscrew and you can turn the nut around and snap it back on and then re-attach the entire piece.
