Water does not enter upper tier in my portable dishwasher


There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

Whirlpool DU1145XTPQA - The Dishwasher runs its cycle properly, but the top rack looks like it didn't even get hit by water, often resulting in glasses and dishes being really greasy.

My ultra wash dishwasher is about 9 yrs old - works fine but their is now gritty stuff in the glasses an plates after washing - what is causing it and how to stop it


SOUNDS LIKE THE SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER HEATER OR THE DIP TUBE DISINTEGRATING. OR COULD BE SOMETHING INTRODUCED TO DISHWASHER THAT DOESN'T GET PUMPED OUT. HAVE YOUR AERATORS ON YOUR SINKS BECOME CLOGGED WITH THE GRITTY STUFF.

Dishes on top rack don't get clean


The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:

1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.

3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.

4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.

THese things should make a huge difference.

Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.
