Question about Kenmore 15529 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Poor/Uneven Wash Quality

The dishes on the top rack are getting cleaned, but the dishes on the bottom rack are not getting cleaned properly.

 

the washer was leaving white spots on the dishes that were very hard to wash off.  I'm not sure if it was old detergent that wasn't rinsing or something else.

 

any ideas?

There is a new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it works great and my dishes look fantastic. they use to look dirty with a white film on them. after the first load when i hooked up the dishwasher filter my dishes looked brand new. it is affordable and works everytime. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

How do I clean my dishwasher when the top rack is not working properly?


Most likely the small holes in the top spinning arm are clogged and you might need to clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. You can do this yourself and you will notice a huge difference in the way the washer performs. Follow the instructions in the you tube video. I always use Dry jet liquid finisher it helps keep the dishwasher clean. You can run white vinegar through the system as well after you clean the filter.

Dishes won't come clean


Check your water inlet for the right pressure and then the water float valve for the right amount of water in the tub for washing. The tub has to have the right amount of water in it to pump it up to the top. It is also possible that the pump has debris in it that is restricting the flow. Clean out the screens and check the bottom of the washer tub for debris at the pump inlet. Use white vinegar to clean out your washer. Start your washer - open the door and pour in a lot of vinegar. Let it run for a few seconds and stop it. Let the vinegar work on the scale and debris. Start and stop it several times during the day - not completing the wash cycle until in the morning - after it has sat with the vinegar 10 -12 hours.

After you load up your dishwasher check that the top arm spins freely. Something might be stopping it. eg Big plates like I have. I can only put them on the sides.
As for the white parts , hard to tell without a picture.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Dishes not clean


There may be a couple of solutions to your problem. First, if you are not rinsing the dishes thoroughly before loading, your sump area in the bottom of the machine will get clogged, thus preventing enough velocity to reach top rack. Second, and most likely, your water inlet valve (or solenoid valve) is restricting. You have a timed fill mode through the timer and if the valve is not opening fully, you do not get the proper rate of flow into the machine. Replace the valve and your problem will most likely be solved.

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.
