Suds in dishwasher

\015 I have a kenmore elite 4years old it is full of suds and I cant get rid of them.I keep running it thru the norma lwash cycle but no results. I never put anything but cascade complete in it .Any sugestion on how to get rid of the suds?\015

Answers :

Yes there is a screen under the drying element that needs to be cleaned. It is usually a plastic mesh screen and is found at the bottom of the drain under the circular heating element. Clean this out really good and it will solve this problem. Also after you do this use a rinse conditioner for a couple of cycles to help flush out the system. Good Luck
It needs to be cleaned completely to avoid this.

My dishwasher is SHU 3000 series and over 10 years old. The problem is SUDS that will not go away. I have used on-line methods such as vinegar. I have gone through 6 bottles of "Dishwasher Magic" and have put it through cycles not using soap over 30 times and am still getting suds even at the end of the rinse cycle. I have called a local repairman and he says he cannot help me..that I should continue running the dishwasher time after time till the water is w/o suds. Any help for me?

Our Whirlpool dishwasher is two years old and using the same dishwasher and glass cleaning fluid since we installed the unit we are now getting soapy suds in the washer when we open the door.

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle
