Why do dishes have tiny specks after washing.


This is common. Make sure the air gap is clear. The spray arm is not clogged. Some dishwasher just don't flush all the food particles out. Try a high quality detergent.

Dishwasher does not clean


The most common reason for not cleaning well on your model is debris in the sump area of the pump. I have put some instructions on cleaning this out. Follow the link below and let me know if it was helpful.

I have a 2006 tall tub kitchenaid dishwasher which over the last 6 months has been leaving residue on the dishes, esp. glasses. We have had it serviced twice. Last Wed was the last time and he found food...


Try changing the type and brand of detergent. We had similar problems with a Maytag dishwasher which was solved by the above. The glasses in particular seemed to have a sand-like texture in the debris, yet drinking water showed no such problem. Hope this helps!

Dish Soap does not open during cycle leaving dished dirty.


I had this happen a couple of times because the rack was not in all the way and blocked the door from opening.

Food on dishes


Dish washers are not good at removing food debris.  They filter the water somewhat but in the main, they recirculate whatever was on the plates when you put them in plus the detergent.  The rinse takes all grease and solubles away.  Scrape your dishes of as much as you can before putting them in.  Use a good detergent in the amount specified.

Food left on dishes


Scrape your dishes of food.  Dishwashers remove whatever is left.
