    Thanks so much for the suggestions. The jets in the top sprayer seem clear, but there isn't water coming out of them as it seems that the spray arm isn't turning. Is it possible that the water inlet that the top shelf lines up to could be clogged - I'm not sure how to remove the filter from it to have a look, but will try that if I can extract it.

    We discovered last night that the pipes, that take the water up to the upper spray arm, weren't clipped in to their 'socket' in the bottom of the dishwasher. We weren't even aware of this, so hadn't realised that it wasn't plugged in. As we hadn't unplugged it, we do wonder if it was ever properly plugged in! Anyway, the dishwasher is working much better than it ever has and we're very pleased.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid dishwasher - top shelf not getting dishes clean

Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.

SOURCE: 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.

I know this isnt the same model, they dont carry your manual as of yet. But it does have some suggestions to look at on page 17. I had the same problem and I looked really carefully and found my sprayer arm was blocked. I cleaned it out and havent had a problem with it again. I do check it regular now.

SOURCE: My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes

I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

After a full cycle the dishes are covered with pulverized food on top shelf only.


Most (if not all) dishwasher have a food grinder in them just like a "garbage disposal" in your sink. (It's NOT really meat to be a garbage disposal)
In any case if the ground food is ending up back in the washer it means its not being flushed out when the washer empties.
You will need to remove the bottom rack and the bottom spinner. Open the pump and clear any debris The round tank tat the lower arm sits on should also be cleaned out. If the washer is over 5 yrs old consider replacing the impeller and all the pump hardware also.
Without specific Make and Model I cannot give you detailed instructions or parts #s. When asking about things like this alway have the make and model # Good luck

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.

My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack. there seems to be water dripping from the top inside of the dishwasher but the dishes are not being cleaned. I am making sure the funnel on the top...


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.

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
