My dishwasher cleans the bottom rack but doesn't get the top rack clean, and I'm not blocking anything or over loading. Any ideas?

    The water is only spraying a third of the way up the door. It seems there is not enough water pressure. There are no clogs, I have taken everything apart.

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.

Top wond (rack) doesn't clean. Dishes are very dirty at the end of the cycle. However, the bottom rack is fine......please respond asap if possible. Thanking you in advance. Connie


Connie,, make sure in loading the dishwasher you have room for the soap and water to make it to the top rack, (older models) on newer models you have a sprayer just under the rack make sure the sprayers are working fully,, to clean them you can use a hard brush and vinegar,, let stand for 5 minutes and rinse off, also, you can run vinegar ( white) through your machine,, to help clean the jets,, use in place of the soap , then run a couple of times empty to remove and let over odor

The dishes wont come clean on top rack? the bottom rack is clean..we tried cleaning filter and making sure the wash arm wasnt hitting anything..we tried different wash settings..please help ...


Check that the top rotating arm jets are not block. These often get blocked by pieces of food or other solid particles, this is the normal problem.

Dishes will not come clean in top rack. Checked all areas for blockage, found none.


make sure that the rotator sprayer for top rack is not jammed or blocked, remove it and check.

ensure that your machine is not set to 1/2 load if in this setting the machine only washes bottom rack you need to have set for full load to wash both racks.


I hope this was helpful.

Dishes, glasses on the top rack dont get cleaned. The bottom rack is fine. What may be the problem?


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.

your top spray arm is blocked and not rotating,remove it from top basket and thoroughly clean it paying particular attention to the holes right at the ends these are angled to drive the arms round if they block up the arms will not rotate.

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.

Top Rack not cleaning


Hi,

Your concern "Top Rack not cleaning" often would indicate that the unit is not receiving sufficient water and the basin does not reach full level. Based on this, it may be required to check:
  • incoming water pressure;
  • water inlet valve;
  • incoming filter (if one is installed);
  • other areas to check are: heater (125 to 140 degress reached?, does the pump work? visually inspect the spray arm for any cracks, splits or possible leaks;
  • you may also want to verify that: the dishes are loaded properly and/or try a different detergent.
Additional insights may be sourced from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

spin the top rotary arm to make sure it spins freely also take it off to see if its blocked (run it under tap) check all other filters too and when you load dishes make sure they do not obstuct top rotary arm if none of this works then it's time for an engineer im affraid good luck
