Q:

Why aren't the dishes in the top rack of my dishwasher coming clean?

A:

Check for cracks or splits in the upper spray arm. Check the spray holes for deposits that could be inhibiting the spray pattern. Make sure that the top rack is pushed all of the way in so that the top spray arm docks in the rear inner feed tube.

Check the water level in the dishwasher. Start a cycle and allow the dishwasher to fill. Crack the door open to stop the cycle as soon as the filling stops. Open the door fully and look at the water level in the bottom of the sump. It should be within 1/4" to just touching the bottom of the heating element. If it is too low, then you may try manually adding some water to see if the upper spray arm will work properly. To permanently fix this low water level problem, you will likely need to pull the dishwasher out and check the water pressure and flow from the water line. A problem with a clogged inlet screen on the water valve could also prevent the dishwasher from filling properly. Here is a link for the installation guide for your dishwasher that you can use to access the water line and the inlet water valve: Installation Instructions .

If you find no problems after checking the items mentioned above, you may have a clog or restriction in the chopper blade area of the sump. Shut off the breaker for the dishwasher and follow the steps shown in the image below to access and check the chopper blade area in the sump. Clearing a clog or restriction in this area may resolve the water pressure problem going to the upper spray arm.

Q:

How do I change the heating element part number 8268559 on my Kenmore dishwasher?

A:

Check your part number. I am showing that the part number for the heater element in your dishwasher should be 8572861. This part will substitute to new part number W10134009. Make sure that you have the correct part before beginning this repair.

To remove and replace the heating element, you will normally need to remove the dishwasher from under the counter. You should only attempt this repair if you are completely confident that you can safely complete the procedure. Here are the steps:

  1. Disconnect electrical power from the dishwasher (turn off the breaker).
  2. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher.
  3. Remove the dishwasher from under the counter to access the wire connections on the heater element leads.
  4. Remove the wiring connections from the leads of the heater element.
  5. Remove the heater element nuts (Key 3 on the image below).
  6. Pull the heater element up and out of the dishwasher tub.
  7. Replace the heater element. Make sure that the washers are in place and that the element seals properly.
  8. Reinstall the dishwasher. Fill the tub with water and check for leaks.
