Having problems with your KitchenAid KUDK03ITBK Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher does not clean dishes and leaves spots on everything!!

\015 We bought this a year ago and have tried various liquid and powder detergents and are unable to get dishes, glasses, silverware clean and free of spots. Even the door on the dishwasher has a spotty residue of build up on it.\015

Answers :

The problem is hard water that is leaving the spots. There is a fantastic product out called the dishasher filtration system. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and works amazing. It is very affordable and very easy to install. You can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.
You need 2 things. Slightly hotter water and a rinse agent. If you don't heat dry your dishes, crack the door 3 or 4 inches after it's done, to let the steam out.

BOSCH dishwasher SHX43 leaves a very thick film on everything. Have tried all kinds of different soaps and spot removers. I tried running unit with no soap and no dishes and noticed a lot of soapy water during washing cycle and still leaving film on stainless steel tub. Have cleaned all filters. Does this unit have trouble codes and how do I access them? Thanks Joeot

Dishwasher hey! i have a frigidaire dishwasher. turns on, fills up with a little water and just sits there for about 10 mins doing nothing. starts to clean then nothing some more. it drys everything but leaves the dishes totally filthy even though they are well rinsed prior. after they are dry, the dishwasher then pushes out the remaining water like it is supposed to and on into the disposal. any ideas? i cleaned the pan out completely and replaced the lower parts. thanks!

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.

My dishwasher recently started leaving a white, chalky residue on all the dishes. It wasn't gradual at all. One day everything was fine and all the dishes clean and the next they were covered in nasty residue. We've ruled out any issues with soap, rinse agents and hard water. A appliance repair guy came out and said the float was "tampered" with and said that he fixed it. He said that if the problem came back we need to order a new float assembly kit. My husband has looked at it several times an

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through
