Check the following to address this issue you are having..

1. No water
\015\012\011\011\011Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water \015\012\011\011\011shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to \015\012\011\011\011the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill \015\012\011\011\011cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at \015\012\011\011\011the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either \015\012\011\011\011side), in which case replace the water valve.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0112. Not enough water
\015\012\011\011\011If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This \015\012\011\011\011could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located \015\012\011\011\011under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the \015\012\011\011\011bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0113. Clogged spay arms
\015\012\011\011\011There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. \015\012\011\011\011Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray \015\012\011\011\011arm.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0114. Water temperature is too low
\015\012\011\011\011To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees \015\012\011\011\011Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0115. Not enough soap
\015\012\011\011\011If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to \015\012\011\011\011both parts.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0116. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
\015\012\011\011\011This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the \015\012\011\011\011dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. \015\012\011\011\011There are a few out there, I recommend a solution called Dishwasher Magic.

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

Clear glass dishes are cloudy. What is causing it? We have checked the arms--they seem to be working fine. Some days it does better than others--today they were extremely cloudy. I washed the glasses by hand and dried and it cleared most of the cloudiness off. I have tried two different dishwasher detergents.


You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.\015\012If ... Dishwashers

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove.

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it was the circuit board and that the blinking light code indicated "too much suds", he replaced the circuit board, but it didn't make any difference.

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?
