My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes as well as it used to. Are there some simple things I can try before calling a tech?


Use a good quality powder detergent.
Check your incoming water temperature, 120 degrees plus.
Use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry.
Start the DW without soap and no dishes.
Once it starts the wash cycle pour in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and let it finish the full wash cycle.
Then load up with dishes and powder detergent and run a load.

The dishes do not rinse properly--despite rinse


run some calcium lime and scale remover throught the unit on an empty wash cycle just to get rid of any build up that may be there.
turn the rinse aid down to about half way.
also check the phosphours content of you washing agent.
there is a lot of factor involved with leaving film on the dishes, it could also be residual soap content that is sticking to your dishes.
reduce the amount of soap a little.does not matter if it is liquid or powder.
once every three months you need to run cleaner through the machine.
last thing but very important make sure the incoming water temp i no lowe rthan 120 degrees.

We see white all over the spoons and the bowls and not sparkilig white.


Make sure the water is 120 degrees at start up and also that the jet dry dispenser has jet dry. This aids in the clean rinse and spotting on dishes during wash, but most importaant is the water temp. Must be 120 at start up or you get an almost totally cold water wash.

The top does not wash and the bottom some what works. no water pressure


First thing to check is your in coming water pressure and temp.The internal water temp has to be at least 120 degrees to properly clean the dishes.

Second after the machine has stopped filling with water open the door and look at the water level in side you should have 1/2" to 1" of water and it should be hot.

Third if there is not that much water add a few cup fulls off water unit the whole bottom of dishwasher is covered in water. Then start your machine and let it go through a cycle.

If your unit cleans the dishes then you may need to replace the water fill valve,if it does not clean the dishes and the results are the same you need to replace your main wash motor.Remember water temp has to be 120 degrees.

I hope this helps with your dishwasher and you get it fixed fast.

White film on dishes/not rinsing properly?


Buy a name brand powder (like Electrosol or Cascade) and use less than full in the dispenser cup.
Do not use gel or tablet, ever.
Final option: (the perfect fix, expensive, but worth it... install a whole house water softener and cut the use amount of detergent in half that you use in both your dishwasher and clothes washer. You will love it.
If problems continue, have the heating element checked/replaced. When it fails, you will always get film/residue on dishes, especially your glassware, even if your water heater is set to the proper temp of 120 degrees.
Good Luck!

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty...


Heat that is retained in the dishes is largely responsible for drying in this dishwasher. Since plastics do not retain heat very well, they will not dry as well as glasses, ceramics or metal dishes. Rinse aid must be used so that the final rinse water will sheen off of the dishes to accommodate this drying process. The heater element at the bottom of the tub is used to add heat during the drying cycle to aid in this process as well. This model of dishwasher does not have any forced air circulation system. Here are some tips that may help you resolve your drying problem:
  • Make sure that you are using rinse aid. Failure to properly use rinse aid can prevent proper drying. Adjust the amount that is dispensed if necessary. Also, check to make sure that rinse aid level decreases over time indicating that it is being dispensed properly.
  • The NORMAL WASH and POT & PANS cycles heat the final rinse water up to 140 degrees F. Use these cycles to help the drying process.
  • Do not choose the air dry option. This option cuts off the heater element during the drying process. NOTE: The heater element is not turned on during the first 6 minutes of the drying portion of the cycle.
  • Do not overload the dishwasher. Load the dishes to allow for proper water drainage.
This dishwasher has a heater fault detection circuit. If the heater is not working, the control will detect the lack of increase in water temperature. The dishwasher will stop and the CLEAN light will blink seven times repeatedly. The dishwasher would not be able to be used until the problem is corrected and the control is reset.

Not drying


These dishwashers have no heater for drying dishes. It has a fan to circulate warm air. It is very important that your water temp is at least 120 degrees. It is the combination of hot water and air circulating that dries dishes.
