Simplist reason for no water in a machine that has been working well, is to check to see if the float, that is telling the machine to add water or stop because it is full, is stuck. I have had a measuring spoon fall out of its tray and fall under the float located in the bottom of the unit and hold the float up telling the machine it is full of water. It usually looks like a mushroom and should bob up and down.

Why is inside of cabinet wet after dry cycle?


Need to use rinse aid for proper drying. If using rinse aid, might have a bad heater. Run it through a cycle, open it half way through the dry cycle and touch the heater with a wet rag. Should sizzle if the heater is good.

There are soapsuds in the bottom of the dishwasher when the cycle is done


This sounds like the dishwasher got the wrong type of soap. It is a real problem to get the wrong soap rinsed out..follow the directions given by the repairman..it may take 5 or 6 cycles... The jet dry is just an extra in this issue...it will be okay when the soap is fully rinsed out.

Top (upper rack) of dishwasher does not wash. bottom does mediocre job


Make sure top rack is backed up into water entry in back of diswasher. Also check to make sure holes are not plugged in rotating wash arm. You may have to wash your dishwasher..take out the racks and look to see if they have food gunked up on them, if so wash them off in the sink. Take out the top rack clips and wash the rails inside the tub if they are dirty. You can use a squirt bottle with warm water. Do this after you run a rinse cycle so that dried food gunk is softer. There are alot of places in this machine for food to stick then resurface later. you may try also adding vinegar and baking soda to a rinse cycle and then leaving in it soak before restarting it.

Doesnt dry dishes, top rack not clean, has been serviced 3 times


If you have checked everything that was mentioned (and none of them are the issue) then either the heater inside the unit is not coming on during the wash and rinse cycles and/or the fan motor inside the door is not coming on during the dry cycle. A technician can easily check this out with the correct tools and by putting the unit into test mode.

As for the top rack dishes being dirty and there being soap left in the dispenser, this sounds like wash motor is either weak or the vario motor is not switching between the upper and lower spray nozzles. The sump assembly should be replaced for this issue.

My dishwasher leaves crumbs and food particles stuck to everything in the top rack


Usually this problem is due to the fact that the dirty particle filled water isn't fully draining and the unit is trying to rinse the dishes with fouled water thus baking any leftover food particles during the dry cycle.
Make sure that all of the water is draining from the dishwasher after all drain cycles.

Usually poor draining is due to a blockage or partial blockage in the drain line,also the blockage can be at the drain pump itself or where the drain connects to the under sink drain

Dihes not clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
