Default Dirty Dishes New Dishwasher

I traded in the old dishwasher for a Kitchen Aid Serial # FW4305915 and the results were dramatic. I got a quiet cycle with a fraction of the insulation and clean dishes and glasses to boot.

This was 4 months ago now the top rack is not delivering clean dishes , if there is chocolate or tea crud in a cup or glass its waiting for me after the cycle.

I do not think the dishwasher is to blame and by the way I am using rinse aid. I think the kids are allowing too much food residue in with the dishes and something is plugged.

Is there any way to check this out can I by pass the door switch and get this sucker to run with the door open so I can see if there is flow. I think there is something called a chopper how can I clean it.

Sorry I did not include a model number I can get that as well if it helps.

You can bypass the door switch along with your morning shower.
If it were me, I have it checked out under warranty.
To get to the chopper, you'll have to void your warranty.

Yes! If it is new, do not void the warranty - call the 800 number and have it checked out, hopefully they can replace for free

Be sure your hot water is hot enough preferably over 130 degrees if not your washer will not clean as well as it should.
