Pressure is probably low cause the upper shelf is not cleaning or getting wet. Possible causes? Is it less expensive to just buy new? It is not older then 6 years?

The unit is 6 years old. Dishes on the top rack do not get cleaned. Dishes on the bottom rack are fine.

Apparently no water pressure to upper washing arm.


Hi sounds like there is a blockage in the circulation pump which causes low water pressure as it cannot push the water around. You would have to remove the unit and turn on it's side and remove the circulation pump to clear the blockage.

Also check all the holes in your spray arms for any blockages. Best to remove each arm and clean in the sink. Any blockages causes the arms not to turn.

Poor Cleaning and getting worse


A common cause of poor washing is improper loading—dishes block or impede the spray arms or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. Your home's water pressure may be too low, the water may be too hard, you may not be using the right amount of detergent, or the water temperature may not be hot enough
