Tip & How-To about Dishwashers
Well this answer takes the cake, for about 3 months I've had problems with my dishwasher leaving "grit" on my dishes. After taking the inside drain area apart of my dishwasher, running a qt of CLR, gallon of vinegar, and any other product that someone mentioned or I saw in the store, THIS IS THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM.
There are 2 screws at the top of the dishwasher that hold it in place under the counter, well when the builder installed it, they only put 1 screw in. Hence the dishwasher after 6 years got pushed back ever so slightly on 1 side and obviously was "pinching" the drain hose. Pulled it forward, put a screw in, to lock it in place and it appear to be working like new.
I am also one that thought that the upper arm was getting water, well the upper arm rotates alternately with the bottom and its doing its job as well. Good luck everyone - Jo. Calgary, Alberta "Happy Stampeding"
