Dishwasher trouble

Question

Seeker of Clayface

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.

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
