Kenmore free standing dishwasher 17799

My bottom dishes are not cleaning well at all. Food and residue is being left behind on a lot of the bottom items only. I've checked the sprayer arm and it is not clogged. Any other suggestions?

Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !

Check the motor pump housing for an obstruction on the impellor. Impellors can go bad and not actually churn the water around the way they are supposed to.

I,m not familiar with this make or model but all spray arms should be removable bottom normally pulls off top quarter turn and pull and the back water feeding tube can also be removed usually by clips.rinse through thoroughly and hook out food stuffs with needle from the eyelets.the cause is general build up but mainly pips seeds rice etc.solution is to rinse plates before going in machine also checking filter is firmly in place before wash cycle.remove and check filters regulary. hope this helps

Most likely the circulation pump. On this pump there is mounted a condensator. This will help the pump to get started. If this is broken, it wont circulate the water up to the sprayers.

What it is called is calcium deposits, your water is high in calcium. You may have to clean the part occasionally with CLR or something similar.
You should look into flushing your hot water tank occasionally as well, calcium deposit biuld up after awhile and your water tank has to work extra hard to heat your water, which cost you more money in the long run.
Hope this helps you .

Hi,

Look on YouTube. Type in dishwasher repair, and you will find a number of tutorials that you will find helpful. It sounds like your soft food disposer needs to be cleaned out. Below the screen in the bottom, there are lots of nooks and crannies that can trap residue and recirculate it.

Best regards, --W/D--

Most dishwashers have a little filter basket in the bottom. Depending on the brand, you can slide out the bottom rack, and in the bottom underneath the sprayer (the propeller thing) there should be some sort of basket that can be removed and cleaned. You also may have some water quality issues, or some detergents will leave residue. Also, make sure most of the large food is removed before loading.
