My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II does not clean the upper rack of dishes properly. They are greasy. I have checked the top spray arm for blockages. There were none. I am fairly certain that water is


Make sure the center loading is not obstructing the water jet to the top shelf. Top shelf is only for glasses and saucers , use Jet-Dry .Pre rinse and clean bottom pan strainer from dirt debris.

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher not cleaning dishes. It runs through the cycles and rinses, but dishes are not completely clean.


I had a similar problem with my last two dishwashers, with food still left on the dishes at the end of the cycle. What a nightmare. The most recent dishwasher is new, now the problem is solved. Here's what the manufacturer told me. Pour white vinegar (approximately 2 cups) into the dishwasher and run through the cycle. Buy some Cascade Complete and only use this type of soap for the dishwasher. Make sure you run a cup or two of the white vinegar through the dishwasher cycle once a week. My dishes are now clean and clear!!

Dishes are not dry anymore after cycle?


Hello there:
If` you ahve already checked all of the filters and they are ok than your drying cycle has problems to check these check these: Heating element Drying fan Thermostat Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element. Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it. Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat. there:
Normally if you have just started to have this problem and you have checked all of the filters and are sure they are ok than

Our dishwasher is linking suds after the cycle begins BUT ONLY 1 of 10 loads does this happen. What could cause this problem? Thank you.


Use dry powder soap and just enough to clean the dishes. Usually around 2 tablespoons is enough in a modern dishwasher and soft water after giving the dishes a good scrape. If you prerinse, use much less soap!

Dishes on the top rack not cleaning properly


Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.

Whirlpool dishwasher is not fully drying dishes


Are you using jet dry or a similar drying agent? If not you should be. Also check to make sure the heater is getting hot in the dry cycle, just place your hand over the heating element to see if it's generating heat, don't touch it as it will burn you.

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


Try Running Goo Gone Through It Although It Smells Like Oranges It Removes Stains As Strong As Sap. Also Try Running The Dry Cycle While Its Empty Two Or Three Times.
