Dishes in upper tray coming out not so clean!
Thanks for using
FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer
inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125
degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature
if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will
help your wash ability issues.
Now check the
Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it
is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a
liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is
To check the
proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating
element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water
pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like
it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water
pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes
the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and
may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for
splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is
not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check
for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.
Low water fills
are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Buttons do not work
We had the same problem. It appears that the water has to heat up before th washer will cycle. It takes about five to ten minutes and then it should work. If not- ask again.

Power to dishwasher and will not run
Check your thermal fuse. It will be inside the control panel, clipped to the control board somewhere. It's usually a white plastic square piece with two wires connected to it. The fuse should read a short. If the fuse is blown, you will need to replace it. If the fuse reads good, I would suspect you have a control board problem. Make sure you secure power to the dishwasher BEFORE you take any resistance checks, however. Even if the fuse is blown, you could still have live voltage on one side of the fuse. If you cannot find the fuse, there should be a tech sheet with wiring diagrams inside the lower kick plate below the door. This could be a tremendous help you as well. Let me know what you find.

Kenmore elite dishwasher cancel is on constantly, no other buttons will work.
Hey, I have a 5 year old Kenmore Elite dishwasher also. Mine started acting up and couldn't figure out why. I finely unplugged it for an hour and plugged it back in, it reset the Electronic broad inside and will work till it happens again. I tried tracing the wires down with the wiring Schematic and couldn't find anything like some kind of fluke some how but unplugging it and waiting works for my problem so who knows it night do it for you and save some big bucks. It's only happen maybe 5-6 times in 3-4 years since new and was out of warranty of course, but I trusted Kenmore for years and years but it works fine after doing that and I'm not calling a repairman for it. I hope it might help, like I said who knows right. Okay. Ben
