Load 4 cups right side up in all four corners of top rack, move all wash arms to a known positon(pointing foward just want to check there rotaiton). start diswasher, when you hear it start washing give it 30 sec or so andpop it open try to focus on middle spray arm when opening, shlould be turning quite well. and glasses sould be starting to fill. at least thats how it SHOULD operate

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher- bowls in center of top rack are full of water, bowls in corners have almost no or no water in them and dishes on top rack are dirty. Dishes on bottom rack are clean.


First try running a cycle of "Dishwasher Magic". You can find this at Walmart for around 5 bucks. This will clean and condition the inside of the dishwasher and the inside of the pump and motor.
If this doesnt help...and the plastic and/or metal components in the dishwasher seem to look and feel intact..this would lead me to believe there is an issue with the pump and motor. These are sold as 1 unit or as seperate units depending on the model. Changing it is simple if you know how to dissconnect and reconnect a dishwasher. Take into consideration the age of the unit, the cost of the part, and the cost of a total replacement.

Glasses in top rack do not come clean


Hello loria... When the top rack no longer cleans like it should check the flexible hose in the rear of that tray for holes. It may even be disconnected, or not lining up with the water supply connection in the rear of the dishwasher.

Check these things, repair or replace as necessary and you will have clean glassware once again. Joe

The top rack is not longer getting clean


Using liquid detergent is the worst detergent to use. One possible solution to your problem could be as follows...pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. May need to do this several times (3 to 4). This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel, no liquid and no tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem.

Top rack not getting clean


you may have a bad chopper. put a couple of coffee mugs upright on the top rack turn the dishwasher on and see if the mugs are filling with water give it about 1 minute. if they are mot filling up you have a problem with either the recurculation pump or the chopper. it's usually the chopper

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher


Either:
  1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
Good luck,

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher


My Whirlpool dishwasher is only 2 years old and I started having the same problems. I dismantled everything I could and washed and scrubbed the entire unit with EVERYTHING..to no avail, dirty dishes!! But I discovered a remedy! Try using Lemi-Shine for about a week with your regular wash-soap. If you are using the tablet form of soap, stop and try the powdered form. Follow the instructions on the Lemi-Shine container. You can find it just about anywhere for around $3.50. I was within "5 seconds" of replacing my 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher when this caught my eye and I figured why not try it too? After the first wash I noticed a big difference the cleanliness of the dishes..and now it is running GREAT after 2 weeks!
