Question and Answers

Q:

What can I do to remove chalky white film from inside Kenmore Elite dishwasher?

A:

Core Issue: What can I do to remove chalky white film from inside dishwasher?

Resolution:The white film in the dishwasher is caused by high levels of hard water.

  • Water is said to be hard when it contains high levels of mineral salts, primarily calcium and magnesium. Hard water can leave a layer of white powdery film in the tub. This is more often seen in dishwashers with a stainless steel tub.
  • Hard water can cause damage to your dishwasher over time. If residue continues to build up, and it can block the spray and cause other problems.
  • To reduce the build of minerals inside the tub, use a hard water cleaner like Dishwasher Magic every month to remove any stains. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's directions when using this type of product.

You can order Dishwasher Magic from Sears Parts Direct Division 22 Source 363 Part Number WX10X10200

The chalky "pellets / rubble" is not inside the dishwasher, the material is underneath the dishwasher and based on the way it is piled up towards the back, it looks to be some type of sound insulation. It crumbles when you put it between your finger and thumb and could be polystyrene beads??? I'd like to confirm that it should be there before I use a vaccum and suck it all up.

A:

From the suddenness of the problem I think the first thing to check is the thermal fuse in the console.

It is possible the thermal fuse blew and is the reason you have no lights.

There is a fuse kit 8193762 that will correct this problem. Follow the instructions with the kit and install all parts and you should have no more problems.

The image below will help you remove the console. Remember to turn the power off first.

The fuse can be checked for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. It can also be bypassed with a small piece of insulated wire to see if it is the cause of the problem.

I hope this helps and you can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Q:

What would cause our dishwasher to become progressively louder?

A:

If it's only making the noise while it’s washing and not while it's filling or draining, the noise is likely caused from a worn out wash motor or from a small hard object stuck in the chopper blade area. It could also be the water supply line touching one of the motors or frame causing the noise also. You may want to remove the lower access panel first and check the water supply line first before tearing into the sump.

I added an image below with instructions on how to access the chopper blade assembly. Follow the instructions under "Accessing Components of the Sump Assembly" to gain access to the chopper blade. If the chopper blade is not damaged and there is nothing found causing the noise, the wash motor will likely need to be replaced.
