I have a KitchenAid KUDM24SEWH5 built in dishwasher.
It appears that the dishwasher is taking the food and gunk off of the dishes, but it is not removing it all from the dishwasher, as there are flecks and specks on the dishes when the dishes are removed from the dishwasher. It is on the outside and inside, of the bowls and glasses, both sides of the plates, etc. There is not a huge amount, but enough that it is annoying. After the dry cycle, the flecks get baked on. Sometimes it is easy enough to brush them off, but sometimes the baking has glued them securely and it takes some soaking to remove it.
I have done the following:
Checked to water level during the pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles. It comes up so that it is just under the heating element.
Checked to make sure that the detergent dispenser door is opening.
Checked to make sure that the water is draining after each cycle.
Made sure that we are using good detergent instead of a generic brand, and using rinse-aid. The rinse aid dispenser it filled and works.
Checked the spray arms for plugged holes.
Checked the filter to make sure it was intact.
Checked to make sure that the washer goes through each of its cycles. I was thinking that perhaps it was skipping the rinse cycle, but it does go through it.
Any more ideas? I think that the dishes are gettign washed, but dirt and debris appear to be getting put back on th dishes.
