Make sure the water tower is not blocked so it can rise to that level. Check the condition of the tower by pulling it up gently. If it sticks, don't force it.

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher- bowls in center of top rack are full of water, bowls in corners have almost no or no water in them and dishes on top rack are dirty. Dishes on bottom rack are clean.


First try running a cycle of "Dishwasher Magic". You can find this at Walmart for around 5 bucks. This will clean and condition the inside of the dishwasher and the inside of the pump and motor.
If this doesnt help...and the plastic and/or metal components in the dishwasher seem to look and feel intact..this would lead me to believe there is an issue with the pump and motor. These are sold as 1 unit or as seperate units depending on the model. Changing it is simple if you know how to dissconnect and reconnect a dishwasher. Take into consideration the age of the unit, the cost of the part, and the cost of a total replacement.

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.

Our dishwasher is approximately 13 years old. Today I turned it on and it did not clean the dishes. After trying to wash the dishes three times, the dishes on the bottom rack were clean but the top rack...


13 years old?!? LOL, you're lucky it turns on!!!

Pop the sprayers off and check for clogs. Otherwise, get a new one, this machine is way, way, way past its life expectancy.

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

Top shelf not getting clean


It sounds like the hose at the rear of the top shelf has come unconnected. Pull the top shelf out when the washer is empty and take a look. If the hose has come apart you should be able to push it back together. Good luck with it.

Top shelf items dirtier after cleaning


After some experience with our own fdw60 with the same problem, we now put all pots and pans on the top rack. Putting them on the bottm appears to stop the clean water rinse reaching the top rack. All washes since have been ok.
