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.

My Hotpoint dishwasher works fine except that it will no longer wash the dishes in the top rack. It's like the water is not coming up far enough from the bottom to do the job.

There should be an upper spray arm to wash the upper rack, it may be stuck. Look at its position, run the machine a few seconds and see if it moved. The spray nozzles on the arm often get clogged with food particles. the pipe feeding the spray arm has to extend when you pull the rack out and retracts when you push it in. Make sure it works properly and has not disconnected.

Top rack dishes have a white gritty residue on them. i use washer cleaner and jet dry and it does not help. i don't know if there is filter to clean or not . what do i do?

Check whether the top rackspray arm is moving freely. Check the jet holes and remove clogs if any.

Hope the bottom rack is good in wash quality!

Dishes not clean?

Check all the water jet orfices in the moving arm. Try cleaning without loading the top rack.

If cleans well, mostly the upper rack dishes not arranged properly.

I hope you are using the main wash detergents. Rinse aid is just to remove the stains after the main wash rinse.

Bottom rack pots and bowls dont get clean

Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Dishes, glasses on the top rack dont get cleaned. The bottom rack is fine. What may be the problem?

Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

After wash cycle and rinsed cycle there were suds

Make certain you do not use dish soap when rinsing the dishes. Make sure you only use DISHWASHER soap when running the DW.
In fact,there is no need to rinse dishes. Remove visible scraps and put them in the DW. If it is a quality DW it will clean your dishes. Do not crowd the dishes in the DW. Most JennAir DW's are quality. Make sure the top rack can get washing action from the bottom spray arm. No pots or other water stopping utensils on the bottom rack.

Dishwasher

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.
