Similarly, you may ask, how do I know if my dishwasher has a filter?

Look on the bottom of your dishwasher tub for the upper-filter assembly. The upper-filter assembly is about 4 inches across. Turn the filter assembly counterclockwise to lift it from the bottom of the dishwasher. This also releases the lower-filter assembly.

How do I clean my KitchenAid dishwasher?

Use a white vinegar rinse:

  1. Put 2 cups (500 mL) white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack.
  2. Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent. Vinegar will mix with the wash water.
