No water or rotation to upper rack

Hi Wizzes-
My dishwasher is actually a Whrlpool Quiet Partner 3, but I didn't see that listed. My upper arm is not rotating - also no water is coming from the ceiling of the dishwasher at all. Dishes on bottom rack look like someone held them under a faucet for 10 seconds, then set them to dry. Washing powder doesn't dissolve. Dishwasher is just 2 years old...Thanks for any help! Amy

Is there enough water in it.water should be about 1/2 below heater.if it is and you can hear the motor running then the chopper can be broken and food is blocking water passage to top spray arms.

Why doesn't upper spray arm function properly?


A couple of scenarios could cause this problem but the simplest might be the way the dishwasher is loaded. The upper spray arm rotates when water is pumped through the vertical supply tube and into the arm. Make sure that you are not loading the lower rack with items that interfere with the rotation of the upper arm rotor. It might also be a good idea to verify that the feed tube that goes to the spray arm is securely connected to the vertical supply tube.

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II does not clean the upper rack of dishes properly. They are greasy. I have checked the top spray arm for blockages. There were none. I am fairly certain that water is


Make sure the center loading is not obstructing the water jet to the top shelf. Top shelf is only for glasses and saucers , use Jet-Dry .Pre rinse and clean bottom pan strainer from dirt debris.

I have a whirlpool gold dishwasher model Quiet Partner 3. The top rack is not cleaning the dishes very well. We live in the country and have hard water. I am wondering if there could be a buildup of some...


if it is just affecting the upper rack i doubt it is just a plugged spray arm (though i could be wrong). more likely than not you have a blockage on the intake of your spray pump motor. a series of bones, toothpicks, foreign material, etc could be blocking the entrance of the pump causing it to starve for water so to speak.
you will more than likely need to remove the lower rack and spray arm to be able to disassemble the strainer and gain access to the sump.
a complete model number would help bunches to.. alas

Quiet partner 1 top rack does not get clean at all


Hi,

I would suspect you have debris in the pump that is causing a pressure drop so the water is not spraying well in the upper arm.

Try this procedure to clean out the sump. Let me know if it helps.

I have a whirlpool quiet partner II dishwasher. There is a gritty residue on the dishes in the top rack and on some of the silverware. Any suggestions on how to fix this?


MAKE SURE THE UPPER WASHER ARM IS NOT CLOGGED, SOMETIMES FROM DETERGENT BUILD UP IF YOU'RE USING POWDER DETERGENT. CHECK ALSO FROM THE BOTTOM IS THERE'S ANY DEBRIS THAT MAY PREVENT THE WATER GETTING TO THE UPPER WASHER ARM

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.

I don't think the upper arm is rotating and I was wonder what the problem could be. Thank you, Les


The upper arm is driven by water pressure so if its not rotating it's generally because
a) the arm isn't locating properly in the upper rack
b) the arm is fouling something in the lower rack
c) blocked feed pipe to the upper arm

Will not clean dishes on the upper rack


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.
