Dishwasher leaves upper rack dishes dirty. It's Whirlpool Quiet Partner II


Your water pressure is not high enough in the dishwasher to wash the dishes on the top rack. The most common reason is that the pump in your dishwasher cannot pump fast enough to keep the water pressure up. That is because the shaft that drives the pump impeller also drives the macerator cutter that grinds up bits of food fine enough for it to pass through the screen and out to the drain. Over time, small bits of bone, broken glass, eggshell, and other items that are too strong to be cut up by the cutter end up sitting in the area where it has to spin, and they prevent it from spinning fast enough to pump enough water to the top rack with any pressure. It is simple enough to repair. You need to take out the racks, remove the bottom arm and clean out the little macerator. Once that is done, it should work great again.

We recently bought a LG 7920ST stainless steel dishwasher. It doesn't properly was the dishes. Leaves food stuck on and doesn't clean the top rack at all. In fact, the glasses are dirtier afterward then...


we had the same problem with a new dishwasher. The repair man told us that the liquid soap would froth too much and not fully rinse out of the system. So the food particles stayed in the trap and wouldn't rinse away. Also the drain hose needs to be looped up to the top of the dishwasher or ran directly down to drain so the wash water doesn't just drain back into the dishwasher. Also check you top rack water jets to see if there are food particles which move into the holes and block the water flow on that level. Hope this helps :-)

Residue and small particles left in upper rack dishes and glasses. maytag mbh940aww dishwasher.Is there a filter to clean?


Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.

In my experience, you probably have a clog in the spray arm/arms for the top rack. Take the arm(s) out and see if the holes in them are clogged. Rice, plastic wrappers, and glass from dishes that broke in there are the most common culprits I've seen.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

Food is being shot into the top rack and getting stuck inside the glasses. It is a brand new dishwasher-had it for a week. We have tried different settings on the dishwasher and different detergents


It sounds like you have a great deal of water pressure which a plumber may be able to address.
Otherwise, This may sound simplistic but it may be easier to hand rinse the dishes that have a lot of food still on them before they are placed into the dishwasher.
Good luck. :)

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
