It sounds like your wash pump impeller might be clogged. The first symptom of this problem is poor cleaning capabilities and food left on dishes. You will need to remove the spray arm assembly to access the reservoir below the spray arm. More than likely, you will find debris clogging the the wash pump impeller area. As a general rule of thumb, you should not put anything into dishwasher that still has to be chewed. You don't have to prewash your dishes, just scrape them real well. Most detergents still need to oils and residue from food to activate the cleaning agents. If you prewash, you simply defeat this purpose. Some things that should NOT go into a dishwasher are lemon seeds, orange seeds, pistachio seeds, popcorn kernels, chunks of meat, bacon, tooth picks, chicken bones, match sticks, bottle cap liners, jar labels, etc. These are a small example of SOME of the things I have personally found in the wash pump. It doesn't take much to clog the pump, and the chopper assembly is not to be considered a disposal. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

I had the same problem. I switched to a gel dishwashing liquid and added about 1/2 cup of white vinegar to each wash cycle. (Just pour the vinegar in a cup, put it in the dishwasher and let the water fill the cup and disperse the vinegar.) Gradually you can reduce the amount of vinegar that you use. Worked for me, hope it does the same for you.

Make sure the filter inside the dishwasher is cleaned out and read about my advice for dishwashers for more tips.

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

Empty the dishwasher and put some powdered lemonade in there. Run it for a full cycle. It will take the lime deposits and other **** out of your dishwasher and it's very safe.
