Kenmore 14249, Very poor cleaning

\015 I ran the machine through a complete cycle to see what I could find wrong. It filled up with soapy water and also the rinse water was not very clean looking. I started the cycle again and put 1 cup of vinigar in at each rinse to clean system. This did not help. The glasses still had a grit like substance on them and when I wiped the glasses with a towel it smeared the glasses with a greasy look. I have had service guys from Sears out several times and still have bad results from this unit. I am about ready to toss it in the trash.\015

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi

The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

My Kenmore dishwasher, about 5 years old, is not cleaning well any more. Glasses look cloudy,and I assume the bowls and plates are not clean also, but that's harder to detect unless I hold them up to light. I use a rinse agent. What's the problem? Is it worth having a service person look at it or should I just get a new one? It's a Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher.
