You can clean this with a product called Lemi Shine. Find it at your local grocery store. It works amazingly well at removing buildup and keeping your dishes and glassware sparkling clean.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes; water not coming out of top spray arm


You are right to go to the inlet filters. If they are clogged you would lose pressure, but not that much...The pressure pump is probably not outputting any longer. Locate it and see if it is moving freely.

Leaves white layer of film. I use Cascade pouches and Jet Dry liquid. I used a dishwasher cleaner recently thinking that would solve the problem, it seems to have made the problem worse. Thank you


First, check the holes in the spray arms to make sure they aren't clogged. Next, try using a powder or liquid detergent so you can vary the amount that you use. If you have very soft water, the pouches may be way too much detergent for a load. If you have very hard water, it could be calcium deposits. The cure for this would be a water softener.

GE nautilus dsihwasher. dishes are not coming clean. Leaves a film on glasses and utensils.


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film.(Disregard if this is not an issue)

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic....

NOTE(((excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher can cause this as well. I recommend cleaning the inside of the unit with a dishwasher cleaner called Dishwasher Magic. its good stuff and it will get rid of that calcium build up)))
