Kenmore Quietguard 3 has mold and is dirty inside

\015 I have had problems with this washer from the start. I have had the motor replaced and Sears repair out twice. On the normal wash cycle it runs for hours and the dishes still aren't clean. After running the dishwasher is dirty inside and now has mold growing inside. I no longer use it, but can't afford a new one at this time.\015

I have a Kenmore UltraWash QuietGuard Model # 16632. Yesterday after 8+ years of problem free operations, it stopped working. When I went to unload it, the dishes were completely dry, the inside of the unit was still warm but there was about 1.5" of water in the bottom of the machine. None of the front panel light or buttons work any longer and I have verified that there is power to the unit. Help?

Dirty dishes We have a built-in SMEG machine and it washes 75% of the dishes perfectly. However there is a build up of sandy'ish residue round the inside of the door (mostly on the ledge at the top) at the end of each wash and some of that sticks to the inside of glasses, cups and mugs. Have checked all the filters we can see and they are clean.

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.

I need a new dishwasher What do you recommend between Kenmore Elite. Quietguard Ultra. Model no. 665.77962K703 versus LG model LDF7920 I get conflicting information- a repairman we know says LG is the better make, needing far fewer repairs than Kenmore in general ( this washer I am thinking of buying was made by whirpool, I was told at the Sears store) But online reports claim LGs need the most repairs. HELP OR... do you have something else to recommend?

I have a 7 year old Kenmore 24" (mod. 16532201) built-in dishwasher. For the past several months now I have noticed a dark almost greasy film covering the inside of the dishwasher after doing a load of dishes. It can also be found around the soap dispenser door, basically everywhere. I'm wondering if the black rubber around the inside front of the dishwasher is deteriorating. It doesn't appear to be damaged or cracked. I have tried "Finish" dishwashing cleaner several times, but to no avail

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769.

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
