Kenmore ultrawash quietguard4 the dishes on the top rack are not being cleaned. seems like the water is not coming out of the top arm enough....soap is still in the dispenser. tried to clean out the filter, etc. and this hasn't worked.
Check the inlet strainer at the bottom of the unit - and also the nozzles on the top are for clogs/sediment.

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
