I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas? We thought it might be the soap we are using which is the liquid variety. We always in the past have used powdered cascade. However, I believe the problem is other than the soap issue.

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

Our dishes do not seem clean lately, and I just realized that the red light (to indicate that the soap level is low) has not come on in some time. What is wrong?

I have a Hotpoint dishwasher that is at least 25 years old. The powder soap in the cup is hard and dry at the end of a cleaning cycle. Therefore the dishes are not very clean. Could you please help me solve this problem! I have been using Cascade. Model #: HDA 780-02 AD Serial #: LF 623631 X Thank you very much. Dianne Cheseldine


Make sure your water temperature for your hot water heater is turned up enough. If this machine is 25 years old, the heating element may be wearing out causing the water not to get hot enough to wash the soap out. ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

My GE Model GHDA480N00BB is approximately 3 years old. When we first got it, it performed satisfactory. Not great, but for the price we where happy.

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover


If the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms. ...

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

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. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

The detegent doesn't completely leave the soap dish. the soap door works appropiately --- but the dishes do not come out clean. We have tried detergent pellet, liquid detegent and the basic cascade detergent....with the same result. There is always most of the detergent still in the soap dish.
