Having problems with your KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher ?

Dirty dishes Dishes have a sandy substance after a thorough washing cycle. I have looked for traps and things to clean out but I need help knowing what to disassemble.


Answers :

On the quest to save water, dishwashers are very frequently overloaded. On the quest to save detergent, they often don't have enough detergent to wash the residues out of them. Try making your dishwasher run with a full load of detergent, no dishes and a nice amount of bleach in it. Do this once in a while and your dishwasher will eventually work much better. Do be careful about any chlorine fumes.

Food remains on my dishes after a cycle. my dishes just won't get clean. I feel the water temp is hot. I'm thinking maybe I need to clean out the food trap (if there is such a thing) but I don't know how to begin. Please help.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Dishwasher with a soil separator. I have food particles on my dishes after every load. No idea what I need to do. I suspect I have to clean the soil separator somehow.... but don't know where to start. I've taken screws out of everything and can't seem to figure out how to access where the food blockage would be. Any help would be appreciated.

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we give up on this thing and replace it. Only 3 years old. Any recommendations? We assummed the newer dishwashers would not need pre-rinse by hand but would clean.

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

What am I doing wrong? Our dishes don't come out clean at all with this. I love how quiet it is, but that is about all I like right now. I cleaned the filter and it hasn't helped. I cleaned the spray arms, I tried everything. We use the regular setting (about 2 hrs wash time for a full load). If I don't rinse the baby bottles, milk is still in them after washing so I know it is not doing a decent job.

THE SOAP RARELY CLEANS COMPLETELY OUT AND SOMETIMES THE DISHES ARE LEFT DIRTY. I HAVE ELIMINATED; 1) INCOMPLETE CYCLE. AND 2) NOT USING FRESH DETERGENT. I'M THINKING THAT IT MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SOAP DOOR/LATCH LINKAGE. IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF THIS NEED TO TAKE THE DOOR APART. I JUST NEED TO KNOW IF I'M HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, OR IF THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE I NEED TO CONSIDER.

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!

Dishes in the upper rack no longer get cleaned. I've been using this dishwasher since 2004 (purchased new), and have not changed the way I loaded the dishes or the detergent. I called the Kitchen Aid help line, and the rep simply read the owner's manual to me (e.g., stand a glass of vinegar in the dishwasher and run a cycle), which did not address the problem. Any idea what I need to do? Thank you!

Dirty dishes The dishwasher in the house I moved into is a very basic model of approximately 1-2 yrs. old. In every load that I wash there are some dishes that are not cleaned properly. I do not have access to a users manual and was wondering if I need to set the water temperature? Can anyone help?
