Wy is top rack not washing


top rack is for small plates & cups not pots & pans as they may obstruct the rotating of the sprayer & foul the water from getting to all the items

Gritty residue left on dishes. the middle arm doesn't seem to be working


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

The soap does not seem to dissolve to clean the dishes and I do not seem to hear the water spraying during wash cycle


your rotator sprayers may be blocked or pump is broken,

remove rotator sprayers by gripping the stem and pulling or twisting out, check manual.

check that the holes are clear.

then try starting your machine with the sprayers out and see if you can hear the water.

if you dont hear anything the pump might be broken,

fistly check that the filter in bottom of machine is clear.

I hope this was useful.

Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

Indesit idl 705, tablet not dissolving and crockery still dirty, was working fine. Sprayer arm seems to not rotate freely


Clean EVERYTHING and ensure it's assembled correctly.
The sprayer arms have an unlocking ring and can be rinsed, the filters must be washed and rinsed and properly reassembled.
Even cleaning the door seals can help.
Test again, clean again (as more muck can be circulated).

Our whirpool dishwasher seems to be cleaning the dishes here and there, missing some. The top shelf of the dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning at all. Also the soap dispenser does not seem to be quite...


This sounds more like the sprayer arm isn't rotating freely.
Open the dishwasher and pull the bottom tray forward (remove it if you like)

Reach in and try to rotate the sprayer arm. It should move freely. If you give it a quick flick, it should spin around at least one full revolution before coming to a stop.

Sometimes these become blocked by dishes or plastic bags in the bottom of the dishwasher, other times they simply wear out and you'll need to replace the arm assembly. When I replaced this for our GE dishwasher this spring, the total cost was around $38 for the parts. The replacement took less than 5 minutes, with no tools.

If you want help tracking down replacement part numbers or a source to buy them, comment back here and I'll google them up for you.

Dirty dishes


if water comes into machine then valve is ok.
open machine when in cycle and look to see if spray arms are rotating
if not, then take out and clean.
spray arms only rotate with water jetting out of angled nozzles at end and if these are blocked then no rotation and poor wash

Dirty dishes on lower rack


Please confirm that you own an LG LDF7811 dishwasher and it is not cleaning properly.
-Are you getting any error codes displayed? -Did you remove the mesh filter and clean any debris beneath it plus rinse out the filter itself?
-Are you using a name brand diswashing powder? Avoid ultra-cheap detergent, especially in water-conserving units like the LG 7811. Never use DW gel or tablets in any dishwasher.
-Do not over rinse the dishes before placing them in the DW. The food granules actually are used to clean all the dishes before being rinsed away.
Please try these suggestions and reply to this message with what worked best and if the problem continues. Good Luck!

First clean the sprayer arm of all debris. In the back of most dishwashers there is a screen on the bottom that is often full of junk, debris and other stuff from dishes not being scraped off.

Clean that screeen off.

Run vinegar (1 cup) for a full cycle to help break down the lime and other build ups.

Check sprayer arm for debris and other objects. carefully pick it out with a small needle or sometimes even a nail works.

Try running dishes again to see if this helps.
