Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher door is dirty

\015 Two different dishwashers - one Kenmore, One GE. The dishes are clean at end of cylce but the inside of the door is still dirty.\015

Answers :

Yes this is actually normal the spary arms spray the dishes clean and the dirt flys to the door. One thing you could do is rinse large items off the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Another thing is a dishwasher cleaner that cleans everything including the pump and filter.
The water jets are probably being block by some larger items in the dishwasher. Run it on a short cycle with nothing in it.

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no
