Troubleshooting

Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my Kenmore dishwasher model 66513419K700 leave grit on the glasses?

A:

Several different problems could result in grit being left on glasses. Here are some issues to check:

  • Make sure that the dishwasher is loaded properly. Glasses should not normally be placed over the tines. The tines can interfere with water flow so that the glasses are not rinsed properly. Do not let items dangle down where they interfere with spray arm rotation.
  • Check the spray arms for cracks or splits. Make sure that the upper rack is pushed all of the way in so that it the spray arm docks properly in the manifold on the inside rear wall of the dishwasher.
  • Narrow openings can sometimes inhibit proper wash and rinse action on some glasses. If you change the position of the item and still have a problem, it may need to be washed by hand.
  • Check the water temperature provided to the dishwasher. Run the kitchen hot water sink tap for 1 minute. Fill a glass with the hot water. Check the temperature of the water in the glass with an accurate thermometer. You should measure near 120 degrees. If the temperature is too low, I recommend adjusting your hot water heater to provide the 120 degree water to the dishwasher. Run the hot water before starting the dishwasher even if you have the 120 degree water provided.
  • If you are using powdered detergent, it should be fresh. Powdered detergent should be stored in a cool, dry place (not under the kitchen sink). Detergent that is old or cakes and clumps up can result in poor washing results and grit deposited on glasses.
  • Use the proper amount of detergent for the degree of water hardness in your home water supply. Page 8 of your owner's manual has a chart that describes the proper amount of detergent to use. Here is a link for your owner's manual if you need it: Owner's Manual
  • Check the water fill level in your dishwasher. Start a cycle and crack open the door as soon as the filling stops and before the pump starts to initiate the spray. Open the door fully and observe the water level in the bottom of the tub. It should be within 1/4" to just touching the bottom of the heating element. If it is low, I recommend checking the water shut-off valve for the dishwasher to make sure that it is fully open. You may need to shut off the breaker and use your installation instructions to access and check the water supply to your dishwasher. Here is a link for the installation guide if you need it Installation Instructions
  • There is a chopper blade assembly in the sump of this model. The first image below shows the basic procedure for accessing this area in the sump. Shut off the breaker before beginning this procedure. Your model of dishwasher will be slightly different than the one shown below. Yours will have a turbo wash system at the bottom of the inner feed tube and the inner feed tube will likely have metal clips instead of screws that secure it to the dishwasher tub. The procedure is basically the same. If you are able to access the chopper blade area, you may find debris or a foreign object that is interfering with upper spray arm pressure. While you have this area accessed, see if the check valve shown in the third image is intact and operating properly. You can also check for tears or holes in the accumulator screen. Any of these problems could result in poor wash performance.
