\015\012To fix the dispenser level indicator, you will likely need to replace the entire dispenser assembly. This is a minor problem that you may be able to work around by periodically filling the rinse aid dispenser as needed if it is dispensing properly.\015\012Try filling the dispenser and see if the film on the dishes goes away. This may essentially fix your problem.\015\012If the rinse aid is apparently not dispensing properly, you will then need to replace the dispenser.\015\012Other dishwasher problems can cause film on the dishes. Here are some other causes:\015\012Overuse of detergent.\015\012Using the wrong type of detergent. Dishwasher detergent must be used.\015\012If you use powdered detergent, it has a shelf life. Old detergent that is stored in a damp, dark environment (under the sink) can clump up and dissolve poorly which could result in film on dishes. Use fresh powdered detergent that is stored in a cool, dry place (upper cabinet).\015\012Low water temperature. The water temperature supplied to the dishwasher should be about 120 degrees. To accurately measure this temperature, run the hot sink tap for 1 minute and then fill a glass with the hot water. Measure the temperature of the water in the glass. If it is not 120 degrees, you may need to adjust your hot water heater.\015\012Low water level in the tub. The water level in most Kenmore dishwashers should be within 1/4" to just touching the heating element in the bottom of the tub. Start a cycle and allow the dishwasher to fill. Crack the door as soon as the filling stops. Open the door fully and check the water level in the bottom of the dishwasher. If it is low, you can use your installation guide to access the water line and check the pressure and flow. You may have a restriction in the water line or the inlet water screen on the solenoid water inlet valve.

My cda dishwasher cw448 is 18 months old, and has recently begun to stop before the end of the cycle. When I open the machine, 3 lights flash, (one of them the rinse button), and the machine bleeps repeatedly. Why doesn't the cycle complete? I've checked the filters, the spray arms, all the dispensers, and manual doesn't give any answer. This doesn't happen all the time, but is occuring more often now.

Excessive foaming when using Rinse Only Cycle in Kitchenaid Dishwasher. I've had this dishwasher only 3 weeks. There is no detergent in the dispenser. Rinse Cycle should be only water; no soap. Rinse Aid should not be dispensing either. What could be the problem? Normal wash cycle leaves residue on glassware. That is why I run the Rinse Only Cycle. I have done this over and over with the same results? HELP!!!

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

I have a dishwasher and the rinse cycle doesn't seem to work. I only know this because the the compartment where the rinse solution goes in is still full when i go to fill it for the next wash. So the solution is not getting used, indicating that the rinse cycle is not rinsing.

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.
