Customerlawrence from gonzales LA

Kenmore dishwasher not cleaning good, have more pressure now, but still not cleaning as good.

Remove lower panels, turn off hot water supply, Turn off breaker to dishwasher. notice how power connector is orientated and how valve is mounted to chassis of dishwasher and remove Molex connector which supplies power to valve. The power to the valve is 120VAC when the timer gets to the appropiate cycle I measured the valve with no connector attached with DVM set to Diode or ohms setting and got about .825. I measured the NEW part and measure about the same. Have towel under valve hoses for small amount of water will come out. remove small diameter hose , inlet water supply, remove 2 screws holding part with nutdriver to remove valve which exposes the black hose attached to valve. Hose has a hose clamp, use pliers to remove. good time to check and clean hoses. I unwrapped a coat hanger to run through the hoses for debris. to INSTALL reverse the above. clean water away from floor with towel. Turn on hot water supply, check for leaks, I did not have any leaks. Turn on breaker. You can stick a stubby screwdriver into the door close switch of front door which enables you to turn on (swing arm) dishwasher with door open to check water pressure. I have a great deal more water pressure and water from jets spray much higher than before. Old valve was clearly bad, but solenoid of valve still worked, which sucks in the arm when energized. I used a DVM on the 2 wire connector on valve to check for 120vac when cycle turns it on-measured good. I still don't have quite the same cleaning as before. It is 80% better, but something is still not right. My wife put in one of those pot cleaners (red) mesh plastic thingy on top rack--and found pieces of red mesh plastic in debris area, cleaned it out as best I could removing the 2 covers, but not sure valve is opening there or debris is clogged in there which sends pieces of food, etc. through hose to garbage disposal. Hose wasn't clogged. Cleaning better but wife is still saying not as good. The Pump is running good, cleaned dust and dirt out of pump with vacuum. 10 years old, thinking of removing dishwasher from counter and checking the pump area or change it.
