Question about Dishwashers

My Whirlpool dishwasher is not cleaning dishes in the top rack. I don't think the wand is spinning. There may be a blockage in the water pressure line. How can I check this?

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.

Top rack not cleaning dishes. model # FDB1050RES2


Hello, check the sprayer arm on the top of the dishwasher inside and to see if it spins. Don't block this spray arm with glasses or dishes that could block the operation of this sprayer cleaning arm.

Now, if it not spinning, check out the fitting arount hing bolt. If this wore out then you will have water pressure lose. Replace if need be. Also, check the feeder water spout that runs the upper spray army, it could be pluged. GB...stewbsion

Dishwasher leaves upper rack dishes dirty. It's Whirlpool Quiet Partner II


Your water pressure is not high enough in the dishwasher to wash the dishes on the top rack. The most common reason is that the pump in your dishwasher cannot pump fast enough to keep the water pressure up. That is because the shaft that drives the pump impeller also drives the macerator cutter that grinds up bits of food fine enough for it to pass through the screen and out to the drain. Over time, small bits of bone, broken glass, eggshell, and other items that are too strong to be cut up by the cutter end up sitting in the area where it has to spin, and they prevent it from spinning fast enough to pump enough water to the top rack with any pressure. It is simple enough to repair. You need to take out the racks, remove the bottom arm and clean out the little macerator. Once that is done, it should work great again.

The unit is 6 years old. Dishes on the top rack do not get cleaned. Dishes on the bottom rack are fine.

The top rack of dishes are not getting clean. I


you need to check the upper wash arm for blockage from debris,if this is not the case,then you need to replace the water conduit from the lower sump area to the top arm,after time the water erodes the plastic conduit especially where it connects at the arms and water gets by these areas and can no longer build pressure to spin the wash arm

Top shelf dishes are not washed


possibly low water pressure...

racks might be in backwards if it's an older model with wheels on shelf system... rubber bumpers should face out...

could be a blockage in the upper sprayer arm... or the upper arm had come off and was remounted in a position that doesn't line up with the jet of water from below...

could be bad loading technique... sounds simple enough but you should never put large bowls or pots that lay horizontally on the lower rack because it really screws up the cleaning effectiveness. Large items should always go on the top rack or be washed by hand if they don't fit on the top rack.

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.
