The only number on the nameplate of my Costco-purchased "Quiet Partner IV" built-in Whirlpool dishwasher (steel insides) is 8575637. This dishwasher does not clean spoons right-they always have dirt left over even after use of "Powerscour" with "Pots and Pans" button. Even the pots and pans are not always clean. This is a very poor performance.

I have an LGF6920ST dishwasher, puchased 18mos ago. since i've had it, it's gone from marginally ok to bad, now leaking puddles onto my floor from the lower left side (as i face it) of the door. besides occasional poor drainage, smelly water in the bottom to horrid cleaning (yes, it's attached to the hot water, i use rinse agent, etc) i rinse my dishes, in fact scrub them before putting them into this dishwasher, and honestly they come out nastier than when i put them in...primary concern righ

I have had this dishwasher for almost 4 years. It used to do a great job but last few months it has been doing a really poor job. Leaving food on dishes and also a film on them. I have taken everything apart and cleaned it good. I have tried different detergents, ran several diswasher cleaners in the machine. Even ran vinager in it because thats what i do for my coffee pot when it needs cleaning and it works great. We have very hard water here so I thought that could be the problem. Its frustrat

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi

I have a fridigaire dishwasher PLD4555RFC0. The dishwasher now only cleans poorly if at all. The detergant used is powder and the detergant has been the same since purchasing the unit 3 years ago. The detergant does not completely dissolve on some dishes and is now staining/etching the dishes. I do not have a water softener, however, have tried the flushing with vinegar multiple times with no improvemnt. The water appears to be very hot as steam emerges when opening the door during the cycl

The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?
