Question about Dishwashers
I've had the machine for about 4-5 years and recently it began leaving debris on the top rack glasses/dishes. Usually mostly on the exterior, but sometimes on the inside of the glasses as well. Technician advised me to increase hot water temperature, change detergent, and add more rinse aid. None of those things have helped. Any thoughts? He disassembled the pump, inspected the spray arms, etc. and didn't find anything unusual.
You did not list the model of the machine. But it appears to me that the disposal in the unit might be in need of work. There are teeth in the machine that grind food.

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.

Recommend you remove the approximately 10 screws to pull the entire filter and manually clean. Remove all debris you find and thoroughly rinse out the filter if you can separate the top from the bottom. If the sump area is greasy, use a de-greasing spray to cut through it. Resemble, checking that there are no blockages in the holes on the spray arms.
Fill a bowl or cup with white vinegar and place it on the lower rack of the empty dishwasher. Do not add detergent. Run the quick cycle. The inside of the dishwasher should now be clean and not greasy. If still greasy, use the de-greasing spray (avaiable at all stores in the cleaning section.)
For 30 days, use only Electrosol or Cascade powder. Do NOT use gel or tablets, ever. Please report back your results. Good Luck!

Check the riser tube coming from the pump assembly and be sure it isn't blocked or that something else isn't obstructing the pump intake area. Make sure the upper wah arm assembly isn't excessively loose on the spindle and losing pressure because it's leaking. You may have to remove the lower rack, lower wash arm and cover to see.
If everything is clear, it could be a worn or damaged pump impeller. If the machine drains normally, it's not the motor.
