I have sand in tall glasses when washed on the top shelf

My whirlpool gold quiet partner III came with the house I bought. Recently, tall classes or car/coffee mugs washed on the top shelf have "sandy" residue left over after a wash. I want to add a rinse aid (jet dry), but I'm not sure where to add it and I don't understand the 1-6 on the rinse dial. It would probably be helpful If I had my owner's manual, but that was not passed onto me from the prior owners. So, where do i put the rinse aid and do you think it will solve my "sand" problem? The sand is almost baked on when i take the glasses out so i have to soak and scrub them!

    I have the same problem. We thoroughly cleaned the dishwasher with vinegar, we are using environmentally safe detergent, but the problem is getting worse. I found a small plastic disc in the bottom of the dishwasher, and assume that's the problem. I don't know where it goes or how to reinstall it if it is causing the problem.

We had the same problem until we started using the little cakes of detergent with the Jet Dry Power Ball in the middle. Now it washes great. This after going through so much vinger and CLR to clean the coils!

Jalexandruna the lid you opened on the dispenser that has 1-6 is where you pour in the rinse aid. As to if it will help or not, this sand issue may be hard water. Try using a eviromentally friendly detergent which is high in Citric Acid. Or try running a dishwasher cleaner like Dishwasher Magic thru the dishwasher to clean this residue out. Hope this helps

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.

The only number on the nameplate of my Costco-purchased "Quiet Partner IV" built-in Whirlpool dishwasher (steel insides) is 8575637. This dishwasher does not clean spoons right-they always have dirt left...


Yes, you almost certainly have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III Model #8575637
Of course the great news with buying from Costco is the ability to return products you are dissatisfied with. Check with the customer service desk.
Please reply if you want to to get into repairing it and we will get under way.

Not cleaning properly


Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film.  Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa) Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry.  It looks super inside - the gunk is gone.  I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!
