My dishes are not getting clean, the plastic has a grease fill on it the glasses have food residue stuck to them on the inside. I had to put the glasses on the bottom shelf in order to clean them but that only lasted a couple of weeks. Now plates, utensils, glasses are not cleaning. What can i do to fix this?

Glasses and frying pans not clean at end of cycle. Residue on glasses and cups,food particles on frying pans.


it's generally not a good idea to put really greasy items in a dishwasher along with relatively clean items such as glassware and plates and cutlery, as most recent good quality dishwashers come with a soil sensor that ends the wash cycle once the dishes appear clean, and all the grease from your frying pan will cause the soil sensor to take longer to detect clean water.

1 Scrape and rinse dishes before putting them in your appliance. Small food particles, grease, sauces and bones clog up the system, keeping the dishwasher from properly rinsing your dishes. You don't need to prewash the dishes but be sure to rinse off any solids.
2 Use a toothbrush to clean around the dishwasher door.
Clean around the seal and hinges of the dishwasher. This area often is forgotten and holds a good deal of bacteria and food splash. A tooth- or bottlebrush is the best way to get into the crevices.
3 Clean chunks of food out of the screen and drain at the bottom of your dishwasher, recommended The Family Handyman. If the drain is plugged, the dirty water can't be washed away and ends up back on your dishes. Nut, bean and seafood shells, bits of plastic and small dishes can lodge against the drain, keeping it from doing its job.
4 Unclog the holes in the sprayer arms. If the holes are blocked by food or soap, water cannot freely spray inside the dishwasher to thoroughly clean the dishes. Leftover food on the dishes can make the dishwasher smell.
5 Keep space around your dishes. Overloading a dishwasher keeps it from running efficiently, allowing gunk to build up around the drain and the spray arms.
6 Run your dishwasher as hot as possible to break down food and grease. The recommended temperature is 120 F.
7 Run the dishwasher with vinegar added to neutralize odor. Empty the dishwasher, place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with white vinegar on the top rack, and run a cycle at the hottest setting. If you prefer, use unsweetened lemonade powder or baking soda in place of vinegar.

My best advise is to reduce the amount of detergent to the least amount that you can use, and still get the dishes clean. We do rinse the dishes a bit, as the soft food disposer isn't made to act like a garbage disposer, but rather, to catch incidental food residues. We no longer fill the closed detergent dispenser. We sprinkle about 1/2 of the normal amount (that goes in the open cup) on the inside door and close it up. Our dishes get very clean, with no residue. Also, use a good drying agent as this will help sheet the water off of the dishes. It may take several cycles to see improvements, but you should see improvements nonetheless.
Best regards, --W/D--

you need to flush out the dishwasher, fill a cup with vinager and put it in the dishwasher standing up, then run the dishwasher thru a heavy duty cycle with no dishs. Then cut back on your soap, with new dishwashers and soaps you dont need much at all

Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

Food on dishes


Dish washers are not good at removing food debris.  They filter the water somewhat but in the main, they recirculate whatever was on the plates when you put them in plus the detergent.  The rinse takes all grease and solubles away.  Scrape your dishes of as much as you can before putting them in.  Use a good detergent in the amount specified.

Dishwasher dishes not clean


i am a retired appliance engineer of 20 years, (and whats a chopper), this problem can be easily improved maybe totally rectified, by making sure the salt is topped up and use rinse aid, make sure all the food catch filters are cleaned out and the waste outlet is also cleaned out, make sure blades are free to rotate and holes are not blocked, these are easy to remove and clean they just unclip. there is no need to dismantle the appliance hope i have helped , if so please rate me,
