Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher ?

My dishwasher is leaving a residue on plates and plastic containers. I use jet dry and the heating cycle. What could cause the residue?


Answers :

There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When \015\012your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water \015\012inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and \015\012if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace \015\012it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A \015\012dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that \015\012enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat \015\012of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot \015\012water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the \015\012dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters\015\012 the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely \015\012affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large \015\012particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the \015\012newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine \015\012cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have \015\012the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is \015\012clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal \015\012functioning of your dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

We bought model KUDS02FR in Nov. 2005. The last few months we have had a residue on many of our dishes, esp. plates and bowls, when we unload the dishwasher. We've been double-checking the detergent dispenser, Jet Dry, and the way we load the machine. We have rewashed dishes, but it doesn't seem to have solved the problem. I cannot find a trouble-shooting guide in the Consumer Reference Guide, only information on loading and guides to the various racks. We have hard water and use both dispensers

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago. Ideas?

I have mold in my dishwasher. This happened about 6 mos ago and I used the vinegar and scrub method to get rid of it...it was a pain in the fanny! Now the mold is back...the dishwasher has also not been drying the dishes very well either, although in truth it never has. There must be some other reason that the mold is back! Oh, and I've used Jet Dry since I bought the machine 7 years ago, and have tried the ''leave the door open to dry the dishes'' .... any thoughts?


Get rid of the mold - Pour about 2 cups of bleach in the dishwasher with about 1 cup of salt, and a gallon of cold water, use the light wash, not heated. Make sure when you start the cycle it doesn't drain first or you lose the bleach. Also I don't ... Dishwashers

Filmy residue I've only had my dishwasher for a couple of months. We've had a man out to look at it because it wasn't drying. He said it absolutely has to have JetDry in it to dry the dishes. Now it is leaving a white filmy residue on all dishes. I've had to run it once with soap and then once without to clean them off enough to use.

Dishwasher Odor Our dishwasher leaves dishes and glassware with a sulfer odor after the wash cycle. We have run vinegar through it, use jet dry, and use 1 tablespoon of dry detergent. All suggestions made by the "customer support". None of these have led to a permanent solution. We're about ready to "kick this to the curb". Any suggestions? I've checked filters and there doesn't appear to be any standing water. We have city water and there isn't an odor when you drink it.
