It could be that the machine isn't filling properly with water- which could be a faulty or clogged water inlet valve. I'm not quite familiar with Inglis, but if you still have the manual, check and see if there is a way to adjust the amount of time the water valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle.

Or just add a liter or so of water at the beginning of a cycle and see if that helps- but make sure you add it after you hear the soap dispenser open- the beginning of most wash cycles is a quick rinse cycle, so any water you add will only be in there for a couple minutes before the machine drains and attempts to refill.

Dishes on top rack do not come out clean. Bottom rack O.K.


Have you tried cleaning the filter? We had a similar problem. The repair man came and removed all the spinners and the other stuff at the bottom above the motor to get to the filter. It was blocked with all kinds of old food bits and pieces, the odd bit of plastic film etc. He cleaned it, replaced it and we havn't had a problem since but he said it needs to be done about every two years. It can be done by someone who has reasonable DYI skills.

Top shelf not getting clean


It sounds like the hose at the rear of the top shelf has come unconnected. Pull the top shelf out when the washer is empty and take a look. If the hose has come apart you should be able to push it back together. Good luck with it.

Bosh dishwasher shu3322uc/22


check for leaks where the the top rack plugs into the rear. it might not be sealing. If your unit has the ability to change the top rack height check in the other position and see if it works. In my Samsung (Bosch in disguise) model The tube to the top rack plugs into one of two holes in the rear, depending which rack position I use. Something covers the hole not in use. Bosch uses two seperate pumps for washing and draining. So I don't think the pump could go partially bad. (This happens in other brands when the solenoid gets stuck between pump out and recirculate)
