Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
Hi, Colleen. Thanks for using fixya.com. I suspect the chopper may be plugged which would cause poor circulation and poor washing results. The chopper is located in the sump housing assembly and is #6 in the picture below. It is accessed by removing the lower spray arm and the filter assembly. Disassembly requires a T10 and T15 Torx screwdriver. Once disassembled, use the picture as a guide for locating the chopper and clean or replace as necessary. Part number is 8268383 and is available at www.appliancezone.com.
