SOURCE: Dishwasher leaks when jet dry rinse is added everytime.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: My GE Profile Dishwasher PDW7880 Soap dispenser does not empty

I had the same problem. After some investigation I found that the hose that brings water to the top arm was clogged. There was a piece of chipped china logged in there. I have no idea how it got there as it is at the top and facing the the back wall but once I managed to take it off it solved the problem.

SOURCE: my superba dishwasher leaves a heavy film on the

Hello, Over time dirt and grime both from the dishes and from the chemicals in the water build up in your dishwasher, you can resolve this by going to Wal-Mart, K-Mart or your local grocery store, their is a product that comes in a square bottle, it is in your dishwasher soap isle, you empty your dishwasher and take the cap off, tip it upside down inside your silverware tray, turn your hot water on in your sink and get it hot, then turn it off, turn on your dishwasher and run it from the pots and pans setting, it will clean the scum out of the dishwasher, I reccomend useing it every 30 days to keep your dishwasher clean and opperating efficiently, also you can remove the arm in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean that out by gripping the big ring at the base of the unit and turning it counter-clock wise and to clean it use a toothpick or q-tips to clean the debris from the holes in the arm, then install it back after you rinse the arm in the sink............hope this helps.........

SOURCE: Film on glasses and dishes.using cascade complete

make sure when you fill the jet dry that you make sure it is completely filled. you must add jet dry,close door,lower and raise the door 3 times and then check normally you could add more jet dry because the air is now pushed out by this process. and finally b4 you turn on your machine make sure tolet your faucet run until it hot and then start machine. that should handle the problem. let me know if this helps by sending me a 4 thumbs up post . thanks

Dishwasher won't allow me to add rinse agent


Well, you don't have to rip the WHOLE machine apart, just the door! Usually takes about 6 to 8 screws (using a T15 torx screw driver). Depending on the model, you might only need to take off the lower half of the door (all below the control console), or you might have to take out all the door screws. Then remove the detergent dispenser (6 more screws, this time a 3/16" hex head). Then you can remove the wires to it (unplug the DW first!), and pop the dispenser out. Take it over to your sink and turn it upside down and shake it. You might try running hot water over the inlet port to clear up any dried-up residue. You will probably get some water into areas you don't want (like the coil and connectors), but when you are done, you can use a can of compressed air (or "duster" cans) to blow the water out. If that doesn't work, then you will probably need to replace the whole dispenser; but hey, you're already halfway there - you've removed the old dispenser. You can buy new dispensers at SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, EasyApplianceParts.com or AppliancePartsPros.com.

A white flim appears on inside of dishwasher and over dishes


Usually a calcium build up from hard water.
Make sure your rinse agent resivoir is full ( Jet Dry)
Run the washer empty with abot 3 tablespoons of TANG in the soap dispenser
The acid in the Tang should clean the deposit. Depending on how severe it is it may require a second treatment

Glasses have a film when dishwasher is done.


There are several things that could cause this; 1. The rinse agent dispenser is out of rinse agent(Jet Dry). 2. The dispenser is not working and is easy to replace by removing the four screws that hold the door panel on and the two that removes the dispenser(be sure the breaker is turned-off). 3. The water temperature coming into the unit from the water-heater is not hot enough. 4.Your water may need to be tested for excessive minerals or chemicals. 5. Low grade detergent may not dissolve correctly.

White film on dishes and interior


White streaking is caused by too much rinse agent. (jet dry) Most all dishwashers now have adjustable rinse agent dispensers, so you can set them to a lower setting when you have soft water, and a higher setting if you have harder water. The adjustment is generally right where you add the jet dry. Other possiblilities would be a leaking jet dry cap, or a defective jet dry dispenser.

first thing you need to do is purchase a bottle of dishwaser cleaner from your groc store in the diswasher detergent section red the instructions on the label add it to the cutlery tray in an empty dishwasher upside down remove the paper seal off the top of the lid do not remove the wax seal place the bottle upside down in your dishwasher turn on hot water tap and run till it is hot next turn on your washer set it to wasn and let it run a full cycle. when washer finishes open it up when it cools and fill rinse dispenser in door with a good quality rinse agent like jet dry close dispenser and when dishwaser is full of dirty dishes turn it on the jet dry will make your galsses come out crystal clear w no film and the dishwaher cleaner will help all your dishes come cleaner.Use the dishwasher cleaner aroun 4-6 wekks it cleans all the inside of the dishwasher and removes a lot of **** aND RESIDUE THAT ACCUMULATES IN DISHWASHERS OVER TIME

Where do I add my rinse agent???


Hello,

I have the same dishwasher, KUDS01FLSS. All you need to do is pour the rinse agent (We use Jet Dry) directly into that circle like plug with the line through it that you mentioned above. It acts like a funnel.
Pour the rinse agent in slowly as it takes time to drain into the dispenser. Just watch the little sight glass to the right of the rinse agent fill funnel. It will begin to darken (or turn blue if you use Jet Dry) as the dispenser starts to get full. I just pour it in slowly and when the rinse agent does not flow down the funnel any longer, it is full. Be sure to wipe up any spills or excess rinse agent. Hope this helps you.

Good Luck,
Tom

Rinse dispenser not dispensing the rinsing agent.


not a very common issue,the unit only spits a few drops of rinse aid every use, so assuming you filled the compartment , that will hold enough rinsing aid for 35-40 washes before needing to be refilled. is it possible taht you havnet waited long enough for it to use this much detergent?
