Frigidaire Dish Washer Model # FD81050REB2 - Top Rack not cleaning.

The top rack is not cleaning the dishes. The top cleaning arm spins freely, does not have anything blocking the jets, and seems to be moving (slowly) during the cycle. The bottom Arm Spins freely and cleans all the bottom dishes, none of the hole are blocked and water sprays out freely. I did notice on the bottom arm one of the end holes is chipped and not directing water correctly. Is that possibly causing the problem?

Top dish rack dishes don't get clean model 8575637


Most dishwashers have a rotating spray bar underneath the upper rack. Over time bits of food can clog up the holes and then dishes won't get clean in the upper rack. Check to make sure all the holes in the spray bar are clear and that it is rotating freely.

GE Dish Washer GSD 2800 DO3 runs a partial cycle...(even empty) and then beep and gives a message on control panel "washer arm blocked". Even ran without dish rack in washer still got the...


the rotating arm has a magnet in it to let the controls know if it is turning. Yours is not turning so
  • check the jets for blockages... you might have to remove the arm to clean them properly
  • make sure there in nothing stopping the arm from turning...spin the arm manually to see if it rotates freely.
  • knives etc sticking upward can stop the arms from rotating on the top rack
  • if you run without the rack the arm will obviously be not telling the electronic it is not blocked because it is not there. the rack must be in the machine with the magnet and the magnet passing correct messages.
  • If there is really no blockage then there is a elect fault that need to be sorted professionally.
  • PS have you taken the arm off anf squirted a hose up the inlet to see if water comes out all of the jets????

Dish washer not cleaning dishes in top rack


Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

Top rack of dish washer does not have enough water


Trouble shooting here... but the same pumb that circulates water... vents it.... So, if the vent valve is clogged with food debris, then you would not retain enough water to wash all the upper rack dishes...
I recommend inspecting the exhaust tube port of the pump (a selenoid is the operating device for that valve). Be sure that it is able to operate freely (close all the way. Otherwise, it is just the pump intake!! only choices...you have already eliminated the rest (GOOD JOB)

Dishes bottom rack are marginally clean. upper rack is never clean anymore. The dish washer cycles through NORMAL and Dries dishes OK. Motor is running, and rinsing can be heard as well as washing cycles....


Just fixed my Frigidaire. The outboard o-ring on the main pump became distorted and stretched. Check your local hardware store as Frigidaire wants $17.50 + shipping. Good luck

Instruction for the top dish rack were missing from my order. The rack is for Whirlpool quiet wash plus dish washer. Do you have the instructions?


The top rack is generally for things like glassware, bowls, cups, saucers, and plastics items. Smaller and more fragile pieces go on the top, bigger items on the lower rack. This is the general rule for all dishwashers.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

My dishwasher is not washing dishes on the top rack...


HI,

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.


thanks,
