Soap stuck in dispenser/dishes not getting clean

In the past I've fixed this same problem by cleaning paper and other debris out of the sprayer holes. I've done that on the bottom, and the top sprayer looks clean, but the problem persists. Soap is stuck in the dispenser after a wash and especially the top dishes and silver in the lower basket are dirty.

The top sprayer may not be spinning, but I don't know how to remove it to inspect it and clean it.

Any ideas?

Try and find a manual to assist you, pdfoo.com , but most ot the sprayers have clips that hold them on/in. just be carefull not to break any.

Dishwasher won,t clean dishes ontop rack


Make sure the top rack is pushed back all the way to connect with upper sprayer arm water port. Also make sure nothing is preventing either sprayer arm from rotating and there is nothing blocking the sprayer arm holes, like seeds or pieces of plastic debris. Also make sure your water heater temp is hot enough.

To adjust sprayer - use a needle or a paper clip, slide lightly into sprayer and you can aim sprayer. It might take an attempt or two but that's how they adjust them.

My dishwasher does not clean my dishes good


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Usually in the center of the spray arm is a wing nut. Simply unscrew this to remove the arm(s). Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

Dishwasher does not clean items on top shelf.


Check the upper spray arm holes for debris that may be plugging up the spray arm. If clean remove the lower spray arm and filter screen and clean out any debris in the sump.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Dishwasher


dishwashers need alot of water ..check hoses for blockage and water pressure...should be around 40. also check and see if proper drainage. water has to get to the top by hoses to a sprayer check that...a motor has to run the sprayer,that looks like a 2 blades whirling about with holes, and might have clutches and gears worn in that cycle...you will stand there and hear all the cycles and can open it to see if top gets water. good luck
