Recurring red-brown slime in Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

08 July 2013 - 01:13 PM

For the past few months I have had an unrelenting buildup of a foul smelling reddish brown slime everywhere in my dishwasher, under the door, in every crevice, and even inside all the tracks and plastic parts. I have learned that it may be due to iron bacteria in my water combined with excess detergent. I have a water filtration system in my house that includes two carbon tanks and an ultraviolet filter. I switched to Cascade Complete powder from the tabs so I can limit the amount of detergent, and I constantly clean the filter. Yet the slime continues. I am at wits end and  do not know what else to do about it. The dishes are getting cleaned fine, but the dishwasher reeks and the slime persists.

Old Kenmore Dryer 110.96273100 stops mid-cycle. motor or timer?

28 January 2009 - 02:21 PM

This dryer is at least 15 years old and has run well. Recently it began to stop before the cycle was through. I scanned the forums and checked various causes, lint build up, door switch, slack in the belt. I checked all the elctrical connections and thurougly cleaned out the lint from everywhere. The dryer continues to function normally, ie. the clothes get dry, but it still stops mid cycle. Before I purchase a replacement part, how do I tell if I need a new motor or if it is the timer or some other cause?
