Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15933 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite works fine but I am finding a strange orange film collecting on the racks, and creeping onto everything. I clean it and it comes back. Occassionally the dishes end up with a white film here and there. How do I solve this??

Do you have a water softener? if so it may need servicing. If your in a rural area and have your own well, you may have what is called red water iron, depending on the amount your softener should take care of this if working properly.

The top rack on my kenmore dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes!


check the inlet strainer at the bottom of the unit - and also the nozzles on the top are for clogs/sediment.

Airgap spills over onto sink every time we run the dishwashers


Hi Jose31,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Kenmore Elite dishwasher.airgap spills over onto sink every time we run the dishwashers. what to do?

This is very common! In most states the airgap is no longer required for this very reason. It's one of those ideas that looked good on paper. In my state I remove it. If you have to keep it, thats OK. All is not lost. The real culprit is crud buildup in the airgap discharge tube. You would have to remove it and clean it and the fittings. And next year do it again. May not be as simple as it sounds. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!

This is a guess but worth trying:

First, check to see if there is any food material in the drain area. There is a screen which may be restricted. This will restrict water flow. Second, if that doesn't work, there is a solenoid which directs water from the pump to either the drain or to the wash nozzles. It is probably stuck part way. It may be cleaned. I once found a toothpick in one!

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
