    The top rack seems to be getting no water. There are two blue plastic valves in the back that seem to be working OK. but the dishes don't even get wet. Now the dish soap isn't even disolving all the way. The bottom rack has plenty of water. I have tried hard water disolvents, and an assortment of recommended dishwasher cleaners but nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions?

    Yes, my Whirlpool Gold dishwasher will not clean the dishes in the top rack. It seems like there is no water getting up there at all.

    My top rack dishes (especially glasses) seem to have a grit on them after washing in very hot water, using water wetter, and liquid detergent (name brand). It is very frustrating.

    my dishes on the top rack do not get clean. How do I know if they are even getting water?

    We're having the same issues. I am pretty sure that the top arm is not moving/spraying water. Of course there is no way to watch to diagnose the problem. The bottom rack gets clean but the top rack doesnt even look like it got sprayed at all. I tore the whole thing apart (all the way down to the pump, bottom arm and drain) and that seemed to alleviate the problem, but its back again. Really not happy with this dishwasher.

My Whirlpool dishwasher is only 2 years old and I started having the same problems. I dismantled everything I could and washed and scrubbed the entire unit with EVERYTHING..to no avail, dirty dishes!! But I discovered a remedy! Try using Lemi-Shine for about a week with your regular wash-soap. If you are using the tablet form of soap, stop and try the powdered form. Follow the instructions on the Lemi-Shine container. You can find it just about anywhere for around $3.50. I was within "5 seconds" of replacing my 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher when this caught my eye and I figured why not try it too? After the first wash I noticed a big difference the cleanliness of the dishes..and now it is running GREAT after 2 weeks!

Dishes on top shelf not getting clean


Check your upper wash arm.... check the holes, especially the ones at the end of the arm. Are they possibly clogged with debris or hard water? This is the usual cause of dishes on the top rack not getting clean. The holes at the end of the wash arm are angled to eject the water at an angle to use the reaction to push the wash arm around. If those holes are clogged, then the arm won't rotate, and only those few dishes or glasses right under the arm will get clean, and the remaining 80% of the dishes on the upper rack won't get clean!

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.

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.

Dishes not clean


There may be a couple of solutions to your problem. First, if you are not rinsing the dishes thoroughly before loading, your sump area in the bottom of the machine will get clogged, thus preventing enough velocity to reach top rack. Second, and most likely, your water inlet valve (or solenoid valve) is restricting. You have a timed fill mode through the timer and if the valve is not opening fully, you do not get the proper rate of flow into the machine. Replace the valve and your problem will most likely be solved.
