Question about Dishwashers
Glasses not washing. all soap not washed out of the dispenser.
This may sound ridiculous, and I'm no "expert", but are you starting out with really hot water (i.e. running the faucet at the kitchen sink until hot water comes out)? My wife refuses to do this and she encounters the same problems: dirty dishes and leftover soap. *I* make sure that hot water is readily available to the dishwasher (even though it's *supposed* to heat it for you) and never have either issue.

Testimonial: "Solution 3 was the correct solution to the problem. Amazing how much junk accumulated in the well to the suction of the pump. The pump was starved of water so that water did not flow to the racks. Thanks."
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1. Remove the top rack and lower rack.
2. Remove the lower spray arm by holding the top of the center hub and rotating spray arm counter clockwise.
3. Remove water tube feed from the back wall of the dishwasher by unclipping at top and back. Pull towards you and lift tab at the bottom on the big tube to remove the plastic clip from main water feed.
4. Remove the main water tube by turning quarter turn clockwise, then lift off. Keep the center hub from falling out so you don't lose the plastic washer.
5. Using a star tip screw driver; remove the four screws and lift off the filter cap assembly. The assembly consists of the screen filter and the food trap grate (The outer edges look gear like).
6. Look down inside this area and clean out anything foreign. usually there will be seeds, paper, and other gook. I used tweezers, toothpicks, and needlenose pliers. I remove from my dishwaser quite a bit of paper, two wooden match sticks, lots of undissolved soap etc.
7. When you have removed as much as you can, put everything back together in the order you removed it.
8. When you run the next cycle, you should immediatly hear more noise to indicate that you have cleared the pathway that allows water to flow at its intended pressure.

SOURCE: dishes not getting clean
brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: top rack not cleaning
Some dishwashers have a telescoping nozzle in the center on the bottom. If this is blocked by a large pot in the middle of the bottom tray, the nozzle will only extend up into the pot, and not be able to spray the entire top rack.
Also, some models have an arm mounted in the top. Check and see if it can spin freely, and if it's nozzles are clogged.
De-clog by soaking the part in vinegar.

There is a screen on the drain area of the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned. It has a plastic mesh screen on it - you can't miss it. Second get an old toothbrush and clean out the little jets on the washing arms that spin around. You will notice these holes are clogged up with calcium deposits etc. Those things done you will have a new dishwasher again. You need to do this every 6 months or so. Also use a rinse conditioner for a while to assure the jets are clean. Good Luck

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
