Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16352 / 16354 / 16359 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a 7 year old Kenmore 24" (mod. 16532201) built-in dishwasher. For the past several months now I have noticed a dark almost greasy film covering the inside of the dishwasher after doing a load of dishes. It can also be found around the soap dispenser door, basically everywhere. I'm wondering if the black rubber around the inside front of the dishwasher is deteriorating. It doesn't appear to be damaged or cracked. I have tried "Finish" dishwashing cleaner several times, but to no avail. In fact after using the cleaner, the film turns blue (the same colour as the cleaning product). Can you offer any advice? Also, as an afterthought, my dishes don't come out as clean as when the machine was new. For example, tea stains or even lipstick stains don't come off. Hope you can help! Many thanks.

There are several items apart from the door seal in the dishwasher that comes in contact with the wash water that circulates inside the dishwasher.

One will have to eliminate one by one - the most likely cause is the washer pump that circulates the water.

1. water inlet hose
2. water inlet solenoid
3 wash pump
4. dispensers
5. drain pump
6. heater
7. thermostat
8. float assembly
9. washer arms and dishracks

But the likely cause could be the bearings on the wash pump or the drain pump which are deteriorating.

You could have these checked.

Good Luck.
Please post a comment if you want to know anything more specific.

My Kenmore is leaving white film on all my dishes. It like it is not rinsing. I will add it is 11 years old.


It might be a bad dishwashing soap. I know the cascade complete works best and all others seem to take a 2nd or worse place. Try a diff. liquid and see what happens.

Did you check the incoming water quality, regarding hardness!

If your washing machine supports salt addition technique, fill the appropriate box and fill the salt that is meant for washing machines. Salt works as a softener.

Finally check your rinse aid also for it's fill in the dispenser meant for it
