kitchenaid model # XXXXX has a part # XXXXX sensor

This answer was rated:

kitchenaid model # XXXXX has a part # XXXXX sensor . Is this sensor called a turbidity sensor ? I dont know whate type of sensor this is in this model. I beleive a turbidity sensor will sense the dirtiness of the dishwasher water and if the dishwater water was filthy during the cycling , that this turbidity sensor could cause long cleaning cycles until it senses the water is fairly clean during the rinse cycles. The filter and grinding area of this dishwasher was filthy and clogged. So i assumed that if I cleaned the dishwasher drain and filter areas that this may fix the possible reason as to why this dishwasher model was having very long cycling times(3 almost 4 hrs) for cleaning and finishing the dishwashing cycle. I know a regular thermister measures temps also but I dont know if this sensor measures both temperature and the cleanliness of the water.
