My kitchenaid dishwasher won't wash. The clean light blinks and if I can get it to cycle, it turns on to ''2 minutes'', during which 2 minutes it makes some washer-like sounds but doesn't clean, dry or spit out any water. Before this, I wash having trouble getting my dishes clean. I wash able to get the bottom rack clean using the heavy duty cycle, but the top rack still didn't clean

We have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDS02. It is doing a very poor job cleaning dishes on upper rack. Dishes on bottom rack are getting cleaned fine. It seems that water/spray delivery to top rack dishes is weak, as many of dishes retain dirt/debris.

Our dishwasher is approximately 13 years old. Today I turned it on and it did not clean the dishes. After trying to wash the dishes three times, the dishes on the bottom rack were clean but the top rack dishes, the door, and the dispensor were not clean. Help.


13 years old?!? LOL, you're lucky it turns on!!!Pop the sprayers off and check for clogs. Otherwise, get a new one, this machine is way, way, way past its life expectancy. ... Magic Chef Dishwashers

My bosch dishwasher's top rack has started not cleaning the top rack properly. I get brown crud on the dishes and have to hand rinse everything after the cycle. This has just started about 6 months ago. I wipe off the inside of the dishwasher but does not help. I use cascade and also the rinse agent recommended The lower rack is fine. I am not over filling the soap container. Any advice? It is Christmas Day so do not expect an answer today.

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bo ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?
