Top rack remains dirty

Our dishwasher worked fine until a few days ago. The dishes on the bottom rack clean perfectly as usual but the top rack does not clean at all. Seems like it's getting only limited water flow and no detergent.

Re: Top rack remains dirty

Spin the top rotary arm to make sure it spins freely also take it off to see if its blocked (run it under tap) check all other filters too and when you load dishes make sure they do not obstuct top rotary arm if none of this works then it's time for an engineer im affraid good luck

I have a maytag quiet series 300, dishes dont get clean on top rack and sometimes it doesnt drain. do i need to clean some trap or drain?

Check the screen area around the sump right below the lower spray arm if it is built up with lime deposit then the wash pump is starving for water and cannot pump water to the upper spray arm this would also starve water to the drain pump.

I don't beleive my sprayer arm is working on the bottom of DW

The problem is hard water and your softener must not be taken it all out. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top

Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

I have a GE dishwasher; spray arm at the bottom does not rotate.

make sure that there is nothing blocking the racks, no big pots or pans, if thats ok then take out the bottom rack, u will see the sprayer, use something long, a screwdriver should do, u should see a slot in the sprayer at the bottom, stick the driver through it and give it a turn, it will loosen, take it off and make sure it isnt clogged, also, ull see a little cover that looks like a grate, take that off also and make sure it isnt clogged under neath

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack

Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.
