Dishwasher not cleaning - want to clean drain

I have a kenmore elite dishwasher model no. 665.15937000 ... lately it is not cleaning the dishes well .. I went in to remove the drain filter screen (in order to clean below filter) but was unable to get to all 4 screws - the last screw is covered by the ULTRA FlOW water feed tube ... what is the proper technique/sequence for removing the water flow tube ? ..and once removed, will the drain filter easily be removed after all 4 screws are out? ... is there another solution I should be working on ?

thanks

We have a Kenmore 665.17702k600 Portable dishwasher with a similar problem. What we did was pop off the drain cover (turns out the one screw wasn't doing anything and just pushed down into the unit when screwdriver was applied). We popped it off by shimmying a screwdriver under the panel, and applying torque on the long end. It just popped right off. Then there was this nasty stale water, and not much obvious debri. We used a wet vac to slurp all that up. So that's the solution we took -- haven't tried it yet, so not sure if it will actually fix the problem...

We have a Kenmore Elite 630.16304401 dishwasher, lately we are getting small black greasy spots on the plastic dishes, also same spots on the plastic parts in the sump where you clean the filter? We h

A couple of thoughts:

1) It could be a gasket somewhere starting to break down. Check your door seal.

2) Food particles could have gotten caught somewhere in the drain hose, or something, and then turned black with mold and bacteria, then when you wash, they get siphoned back into the dishwasher if the flap which composes the anti-siphon check valve on the drain hose is starting to stick open.

Try putting a cup of bleach in the top rack and run a complete cycle with no other dishes in it. Then, load up some plastic dishes and wash them as normal. See if that helps. If it does, replace your check valve.

Also, insure that your drain hose is looped up above the bottom of your sink to prevent debris from your garbage disposal backing up into your dishwasher.

Good luck and keep us posted!

The dishwasher soap in my kenmore elite dishwasher is not dissloving and as a result my dishes are not getting cleaned. any suggestions?

Check to see if it is filling with water and not draining it right back out. Give model number so I can look for a diagram to repair. Just fixed mine as it was doing the same thing.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem?...

Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and blocked.

Check disposal to see if d/w knock out was removed form disposal. If so check drain hose for kinks or restrictions.

Ie unistally hose from disp and see if d/w will drain into bucket. IF not uninstall d/w and check for kinks.
