Question about Westinghouse 24 in. MDP531 RF Free-standing Dishwasher
DISHWASHER WILL NOT DRAIN ALL WATER FROM BASE OF MACHINE WHEN CYCLE IS COMPLETE
DISHES PLACED ON THE TOP DRAWER ARE NOT CLEANED CORRECTLY
RESIDUE LEFT ON SURFACE MODEL 921 FREESTYLE
Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely. This should solve the draining issue.
As for the dishes not being cleaned on the top drawer check the holes on the top spray arm. If the holes are blocked up with food you will get poor wash results. Best way to clean the spray arm is to remove it by unscrewing it and giving it a good clean under the tap and poking the holes to clear any blockages.
Hope this helps

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.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
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.
