Having problems with your KitchenAid KUDR24SE Built-in Dishwasher ?
After a regular dishwashing cycle, our dishes and glasses are not getting clean. They are left with a white film. We have checked and all holes in the spray arms are open. We have tried a rinse agent, too. The upper arm gets blocked when we spin it when open ... probably not spinning well in the cycle.
any ideas to fix it would be great!
Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.
under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.
Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

My GE Profile dishwasher is not cleaning the glasses on the top rack. It leaves all kind of grit and food on the glasses. I did some testing and it lookslike the wash rinse/wash assemblies are not spinning at all. I think the conduit main may be blocked or leaking at the seal. My question is, how do you remove the track (conduit) that brings the water to the upper rinse arms?

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?
Hello; first thing to check, which you don't mention, is which side of the glasses aren't coming clean; the outside, which would be caused by the TOP spray not working properly, or the INSIDE, which would be caused by the spray BELOW the top rack not ... Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

Have a dd603 with an issue...took off the arm and the metal silver disk (the ones with holes) to get to the wash impeller-(the thing with blue blades) the wash impeller will not spin-which I think is part of my problem, since i looked at the lower drawer and was able to spin the blue blades easily...was also able to pull it right out.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1345XTVB about 5 years old. It functions perfectly but is not cleaning the dishes well particularly the top rack. The arms spin, soap dispenser works, cycles properly--just doesn't get the food off. I checked the arms to see if the are blocked but don't appear to be as the dishes get wet. Thanks
There are a few things to do. The water temperature is a big contributor, in dishes not getting clean. Another is the type of detergent being used. Liquid dishwasher detergent with water softeners and a drying agent will help loosen food too. If ... Dishwashers

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking
