Why are the coffee cups still stained after the dishwasher is finished, but all the other dishes are clean and santized

Coffee stains are just one of those things that your dishwasher just isn't going to remove. I assure you they are sanitized and safe to use. That being said there are some things you can do to remove the coffee stains.
Use a damp cloth to scrub out the inside with baking soda. Soaking overnight with hot water and baking soda may also work.
Soaking in bleach or vinegar over night. It goes without saying but make sure you rinse your mugs well if you decide to do this.
Fill with boiling water and a tablespoon of dishwasher detergent soak overnight.
Scrub with a paste of corn starch and vinegar. Leave on for 30min - 1hour and rinse.
Interestingly enough denture tablets have also been known to remove coffee stains. Toss a few in there and soak overnight.
Good luck!

We have Model DU1145XTPQ6 built in Quiet Partner II and for the past several weeks it is leaving a white, gritty deposit inside all glasses and coffee mugs that are in the top rack. Rotating blade seems...

To solve white, gritty deposits on the upper rack, take the upper arm out. You cannot pry it open but using whatever skinny object you have to poke in the holes, banging the arm gently, lots of chunky white deposits can be shaken out. Rinse arm, replace and we're back in business. For us, this will probably be repeated every three years, but it beats replacing the arm which costs $45--another option to solve this problem.

Coffee mugs have stains

Does you dishwasher have a rinse aid fill? Most newer dishwashers will have this feature and really helps with water spots. Hope this helps.

Top rack not getting clean

you may have a bad chopper. put a couple of coffee mugs upright on the top rack turn the dishwasher on and see if the mugs are filling with water give it about 1 minute. if they are mot filling up you have a problem with either the recurculation pump or the chopper. it's usually the chopper

A white nasty film on the dishes after washing

Check to make sure there are no bits or trash or paper around the bottom parts of your dishwasher. Place a bowl of vinegar on the bottom rack of your empty dishwasher. Run your dishwasher through a complete cycle.

The sump may be full of debris here is how to check it:

ok in the dishwasher you will see you lower spray arm. take it off. now going up the back is the supply tube. you need to pop it off of thed top then the back and turn it clockwise to get it off the motor. after you do that you will see 4 torx screws. take all 4 out and you will be able to remove the fine filter. thats the normally grey piece with all the slots. after you remove the filter you will see two more torx screws. remove them they are for 2 seperate pieces one is the foreigh food seperator and the other is the chopper cover. remove both of them and clean the whole thing out. as yiou are puytting it back together. let me know if you get stuck
