Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Dishwasher racks are falling apart from rust. I would like to replace them, but am confused as to what parts to buy. Also, do you know where to buy them?

My viking dishwasher is not getting the dishes clean in certain areas of the dishwasher - they come out with food still on and/or greasy residue still left on.

Noisy dishwasher my Kenmore quietguard 4 has developed an exceptionally loud hum/buzzing noise seemingly coming from the door of the dishwasher, when closed, locked and put on either drain or wash cycle.If the unit is allowed to sit for 1-2 days, the drain cycle will empty the tub without the buzzing noise starting. If anything else is attempted afterwards, like a wash cycle, the noise immediatley starts at a low level, then becomes steadily louder, until the full volume is reached, and does not

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal?

I have a KitchenAid drawer dishwasher model kudd01dppa and it has a mind of its own starting and stopping in the middle of the night/day and chiming all different beeps and sounds like its computer is glitching out. We had a service person out and they changed the main computer board and it seemed to fix it for a few days then started again. They gave up. They also tried some sort of reset or reboot but nothing has fixed this intermitten but long term problem. Any ideas?

GSD4000N Dishwasher not draining. I removed the sprayer arm, the round flat screen, the cage over the drain and the other plastic fixture that sits down in the drain area. I found a white ball sitting in there. I can also put fingers on something down there that is kind of like a wing nut that spins but doesn't seem to loosen anything. I'm officially stuck.

My Bosch SHY56A02 dishwasher won't fill....When cycle is started, it seems to pump water out but none in. Water feed is good....Added water manually and it pumps out immediately.

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.
