I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher Mod # 665-1371. It recently started leaving the dishes dirty. I have checked all the items on the Trouble shooting page of the User Manual and all items listed are OK. What should I look for or do next?

if unavailable on line, contact mfg's parts and you should be able to order it.
also, they likely do not make the unit. the sears may be able to tell you who made it. that company would be able to get you a diagram. just make some phone calls.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III, leaves dirty, greasy dishes

Ifixall is correct. I also learned several things with the apartment buildings I maintain.

1. the screen or pump trap must also be cleaned regularly to make sure there is no debris, food etc stuck in there.

2. The spray arms must be free of debris or obstructions.

3. Jet dry solution must be filled or has some solution in it.

4. Water must be hot

5. Scraping dishes and prewash them before putting them into dishwasher.

6 install water softner sometimes helps. (I don't know how true this is, since I am unable to do this in our buildings)

7 drain line must be picked up, or secured to prevent backwash.

8. MAKE sure that the lower rack is not obstructing the sprayer arms. Sometimes overloading dishwashers will cause dishes not being cleaned properly.

9. if all else fails, a service technician can come out to determine if the dishwasher is operating properly.

SOURCE: Where is the filter on a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2 dishwasher?

I have a Quiet Guard 4. Same problem so will describe my solution.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket.
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmly) the centre post. Lift arm assembly up and out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back, one at top (Philips #2 bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up). Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 bit). Lift whole assembly out. Pop off screen and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at front left (under assembly removed in 4). Remove screw (Star T-15 bit) and cap (Needs some wiggling to free it up). Remove cutter and filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and then the filter disc straight up. Clean thoroughly as it may be the cause of your problems.
Reassimble. Good luck!

your top spray arm is blocked and not rotating,remove it from top basket and thoroughly clean it paying particular attention to the holes right at the ends these are angled to drive the arms round if they block up the arms will not rotate.

The top rack on my kenmore ultra wash 3 dishwasher does not come clean and now even the bottom is starting to not clean


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

While washing dishes the dishwasher has a continuous knocking noise


This is usually due to worn spray-arms. These are replacable items.
Remove them and check for wear, and replace if required.
