Dishwasher trouble

8 posts in this topic

We have a Kenmore, about 4 years old. Just recently, every load comes out with a soapy film and dried food particles. Any suggestions?

I have trouble with hard water in my area. Twice the spray holes get clogged with hard white stuff (calcium)? (top and bottom).

You can run some stuff through it like CLR or vinigar, and see if it helps. Also, check the screen at the bottom of the tub to make sure it's not clogged. You will have to take some parts off to get everything cleaned out if that is the problem.

Before you call someone...I'm sure there is an expert here to help you get it fixed.

I can deal with boat problems, but if something like a dishwasher goes down...my better half is all over me. I can't even look at my boat until the crisis it taken care of! crazy.gif

Water softener? Maybe the water is too hard.

We had a similar problem with a Whilpool a few years ago. We do most of the laundry on the warm wash/cold rinse setting and use liquid detergent. We found out that without a hot water cycle every once in a while some of the soap and lint build up on the inside of the outer tub of the washer. When it gets thick enough it starts to flake off.

The repairman pulled out the agitator and the inner tub and scraped the crud off. Then we ran the washer twice on the hot/hot setting with no clothes and it cured the problem. Now my wife runs a load on the hot/hot setting about 1 time a month and we haven't had any problems.

If you can figure out how to get the agitator out it didn't much work to clean out the crud.

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
