Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher model number KUDK03CTSS3. It's only about 3 years old, but the dishes on the top rack do not get clean. We thought maybe it was water not coming out the top, or food stuck somewhere, but do not know how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Had a simular problem, used product called dishwasher magic to clean it well and that took care of it. I got it @ walmart in the diswasher detergent area. Also be sure you are loading according to the manual. I now use lemi shine in every load for spot free clean dishes and put the dishwasher magic in it about every few months to keep it from getting build up. If you have a manual they have directions to take them apart for cleaning and I have had to that before to. Just remember how to get it back together. That's all I have but I'm not a repair person I'm a nurse.

Kitchen aid dishwasher, 3 yrs old, dishes on top rack do not get clean


Hi,

On your model, upper rack cleaning issues are most often linked to debris in the inlet to the pump. I have put some instructions together on cleaning this. If you follow the link it will explain how to check and clean this.

TOP SPIN ARM NOT SPINNING TO CLEAN TOP RACK OF MY KITCHEN AID DISHWASHER. IT IS ONLY 1 1/2 YEARS OLD AND MY TOP TACK IS SUDDENLY NOT CLEANING


Hi.

First ensure that the arm is not getting stuck, and check that the orifices are free.

When the top arm is not spinning you may need to replace pump and motor assembly. First it is good looking for blockage in pump hose.

If the appliance is less than two year old, then it may be covered by limited warranty. Call Kitchenaid at the number listed in the owners manual to verify your warranty status.

Regards.

Kitchen Aid SS Dishwasher KUD102CRBS1 - Top Rack has 3 rusty spot


Looks like you can get the upper rack for about half that, direct from Sears-
Dishwasher Dishrack Upper Part Number 8539234 Sears PartsDirect
Still kinda pricey if you only have a few bad spots.

There is special touchup coating (never tried it myself, but looks like it gets good reviews, and the price is right)

Or prong covers if you just have rust or damage on the tips (I've used ones like these, the long ones stay on good)

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack


Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.

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.
