My dishwasher, now 12 years old I think, is not cleaning the dishes as well and I find the walls of the dishwasher are dirty as well. Is it worth a repair call?

Hello, our Whirlpool dishwasher is about 3 years old. It is not cleaning the dishes; I don't think the arms are turning because the door is always dirty, so no water is getting that far. Also, the cycle...


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Etching on the glass ware and the dishes don't come clean.


Dishes may not be getting enough rinse water. Had the same problem before I replaced inlet valve. My fisher packel was 3.5 years old before I replaced the inlet valve due to a knocking noise, but It still ran through cleaning cycle without any alarm codes.

Dishes not clean after cycle!


Is the water coming into the dishwasher and is the wash motor working or is the sump clogged up so the water cannot get thru.Depending on the purchase date of the dishwasher, if it is a under a year old call who ever you bought it from as it usually comes with a 1 year manufactures warranty.

GE PDW9700 - The dishes do not get cleaned


Same as above problem: I have had this dishwasher for less than 4 years and the dishes as of about 2 years ago stopped getting cleaned. I use the recommended dish liquid and rinse and lightly clean the dishes before I put them in.
What a piece of junk!! gs

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.

GE dishwasher GSD2200G00WW dishes not clean


Make sure the spray arm is actually rotating and the jets aren't clogged. You should be able to hear the arm rotating when the dishwasher is operating.

Otherwise, perhaps the pump is plugged or not working and the water isn't "jetting"

Sounds like your not getting water to it. Turn on and let run for a few minutes then open door and check to see if you have water in it.
If not check to be sure water to it is turned on. Check float in front corner of dishwasher to see if moves freely up and down and that there is nothing underneath it. If these check ok you probably need a water valve.
