Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher is leaving food particles everywhere

\015 When we bought the dishwasher a couple of years ago, we insisted on getting one that has some sort of food grinder in it (don't know what that's called). It's been washing fine until recently, The dishes get clean except there are food particles everywhere in the washer and on the dishes. So it gets the food off the dishes but the food doesn't go anywhere. Please let me know what I can do...thanks, Gena\015\012My dish washer leaves food particles on the dishes as well. The only thing is that it does not do it all the time and it can happen even when the dishes are well spaced and we do not have a full load. Ann\015

Cleaning My dishwasher always leaves behind these brown small peices of crime. I use about 1 tsp of dry poweder (the repair told me to last year) and that helped with all the streaks on the dishes. I clean the traps often, clean off my dishes to the point as I might as well just do them by hand, and still I get these food particles or whatever it is. We have a good working water softner. I get so frustrated and it seems like such a waste of time. Any suggestions? Teree

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. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and

My kitchenaid dishwasher leaves food particles on the dishes. There's supposed to be an "Ultra-fine filter" under the spray arm. Perhaps it is clogged, but I don't see how to remove the spray arm so I can check it and clean it. The owner's manual is no help. Can you tell me how to do this?
