Possible grit you are feeling is from the water softener breaking down. the softener contains a brown resin. this ofted happens if you have connected supply to hot water. best connect to cold

Apart from Tresilla's suggestion, you might also check that: Filters and strainers are clean Upper spray arm is clean (take it off and wash it through to make really sure) Upper spray arm is free to turn (if you jam it by putting too-large itmes in the lower shelf, you will almost always get the symptoms you describe). Upper spray arm is on the right way up (I'm the only person I know who's put one on upside-down, but gess what the symptoms were). If this is one of those machines where the upper spray arm is attached to the upper shelf, and fed through a vertical telescoping tube, make sure the tube telescopes freely. A.

Siemans dishwasher model SE55A560GB/42. Upper rotating spray bar not turning but botton spray bar is rotating. Dishes are left with a gritty feel to them.


Check that the arm rotates freely when spun by hand, then check that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. It may also cause water to continue dripping onto dried dishes after the the drying cycle has stopped.

There is so much debris left on the dishes after the dishwasher has run, it's almost not worth running it. The debris is mostly small hard bits on the inside of glasses from the top shelf. Is this a...


this is a maintenance problem.. if the bits look like grains of sand it is actually food particles that breaks down during the cycle spraying the cups and glasses (usually the top shelf that gets hit worst). solution is to run a dishwasher cleaner through the system on a hot wash. To remove and wash bottom filters and spray arm jets. Lastly when loading the DW make sure excess food are scraped/rinsed off ...you will get better results. Thanks

The dishes/glasses on the top shelf are not getting clean


Here is a link to a procedure I put together to clean out your pump. A plugged up sump is the most common reason for poor washing on the upper rack.

Let me know if this helps.

riff...not sure what the bits are...first, they may be food crumbs or the like. Dishwashers have macerators to grind up food particles but they have no really good way to get rid of them in the wash cycle. Scrape plates of any solids before loading them. If the material is shaped like water droplets, you may have hard water stains. Use Jet Dri or a cleaning product which claims to help and use the amount specified. Your water temp may be low...it should be 125F or better. If you can run the hot tap and put your hand under it...it isn't hot enough. You can also use the heated water setting to deal with this.
