Hi,

The most common reason for this to happen on this machine is due to debris in the sump area of the pump. I have put together some instructions on how to clean it out. If you are up for it follow the link and let me know if it helps.

Dishes on top shelf not getting clean


Check your upper wash arm.... check the holes, especially the ones at the end of the arm. Are they possibly clogged with debris or hard water? This is the usual cause of dishes on the top rack not getting clean. The holes at the end of the wash arm are angled to eject the water at an angle to use the reaction to push the wash arm around. If those holes are clogged, then the arm won't rotate, and only those few dishes or glasses right under the arm will get clean, and the remaining 80% of the dishes on the upper rack won't get clean!

On my Kenmore model 665.13489K900, it does not clean well and appears to have a problem with getting or circulating water inside to all areas, especially the top shelf.


Check the center wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren't clogged or blocked. * Run empty cycle using vinegar and baking soda lime scale problem will resolve.

Kenmore 3380957 rev a won't get dishes clean


Make sure that that upper arm is free to turn. Check it while you have dished installed, because sometimes, dishes on the lower rack may stick up too high and hit it. Otherwise, check the back of the water-supply tube attached to that upper rack.... Is it lining up with the water feed port or hole at the backof the dishwasher? Is there a gasket that is either ripped or missing? And check that wash arm carefully.... Might it be split or bent? Are the holes on the bottom clear? (Those holes are usually angled to push the arm around; if they are clogged, the arm won't rotate.)

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

Dishes not clean?


Check all the water jet orfices in the moving arm. Try cleaning without loading the top rack.

If cleans well, mostly the upper rack dishes not arranged properly.

I hope you are using the main wash detergents. Rinse aid is just to remove the stains after the main wash rinse.

Top rack of dish washer does not have enough water


Trouble shooting here... but the same pumb that circulates water... vents it.... So, if the vent valve is clogged with food debris, then you would not retain enough water to wash all the upper rack dishes...
I recommend inspecting the exhaust tube port of the pump (a selenoid is the operating device for that valve). Be sure that it is able to operate freely (close all the way. Otherwise, it is just the pump intake!! only choices...you have already eliminated the rest (GOOD JOB)
