Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher is almost 10 years old but has held up well. Over the past couple of months, however, it does not rinse well but leaves a layer of crud on the surfaces of the dishes in the top rack. I've cleaned out the sprayers and the associated plumbing (built-up pulp residue from labels left on some cans) but the problem persits. It's as if the crud is not getting filtered and removed from the rinse stream.

\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. Check the water temperature inside the dishwasher to\015\012measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F\015\012as possible. This would have happened as the dishwasher was overloaded with\015\012more than prescribed number of dishes. Check the spray arm and pump cover for\015\012splits or leaks. As the dishwasher is not draining\015\012properly, this issue is related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if\015\012connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.\015\012Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and\015\012this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to\015\012ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to\015\012experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have\015\012a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t\015\012working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is\015\012a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. If you have checked the air gap\015\012and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the\015\012drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do accept the solution if the issue is\015\012resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink.
