    I have this problem, i.e., dishes on top shelf not clean (gritty residue, esp. on glassware, despite attention to rinse agent), dishes with any challenge to them (i.e., bowl with cornflake residue) don't get clean, soap dish not emptying resulting in caked soap, rinse agent indicator not seeming to work, appliance is only 2 years old! We have done all the suggeted things - running only water through them, running machine with cup of vinegar, and nothing seems to work.

Generally dishwashers rely on the pressure supplied by the water supply line. check to see if it is enough or if inlet pipe is of sufficient diameter for needed some instances i know of seperate lines needing to be run directly instead of coming off of supply to sink area.

Why do dishes on the top rack feel dirty after washing?

probably not getting enough water pressure in the top section of the machine to was properly ( dirty spray bar jets /nozzles)
do a machine clean using good quality recommended agents
A major problem that occurs with dish washers is the failure to rinse off the items to be washed before installing in the machine
this refuse then blocks up the jets and nozzles in the spray bars and stops the pump from reaching full pressure.

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.

Hobart WM-ID dishwasher doesn't heat water enough to clean dishes

The WM-1D does not have any internal heating devices. You have to supply the machine with the proper water temp. It has two fill valves, one for wash and one for rinse. It should have 150F supplied to the wash fill valve and 180F to the rinse fill valve.

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 have already eliminated the rest (GOOD JOB)

Dishes very cloudy and will not come clean

The most common reason that dishes don't get clean is that a build up of gunk is covering the screen that protects the recirculation pump. This prevents the machine from having enough water pressure to clean the dishes, and leaves a soapy film on everything.

The second most common reason is that the machine isn't filling up with enough water. To test this turn the machine on for a normal load and when it begins to wash, open the door and see if there is enough water in the dishwasher.

To know how much water should be in the dishwasher you will have to consult the manual that came with it, as well as to find out how to access the recirculation pump.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top rack

Check the riser tube coming from the pump assembly and be sure it isn't blocked or that something else isn't obstructing the pump intake area. Make sure the upper wah arm assembly isn't excessively loose on the spindle and losing pressure because it's leaking. You may have to remove the lower rack, lower wash arm and cover to see.

If everything is clear, it could be a worn or damaged pump impeller. If the machine drains normally, it's not the motor.

Top row of dishes are not getting clean.

It sounds as if there is no water pressure to the upper arm. You may want to try putting something over one of the holes to see if it is disturbed during th wash cycle. There should be enough pressure there to blow off a piece of masking tape if it is not attached too securely. Do some experimenting to see if you have presure there. There could be a problem with the tube that feeds to the water to the upper arm.

Dishes not washing clean

check water level in machine
may be not filling enough and the wash pump is starved from water thus not pushing water to upper arm
drain water from machine dismantle and clean out air tube to pressure switch take off air tube at pressure switch and blow back into sump then pinch air tube with fingers to stop air from flowing back up tube then refit to p/s
run and see if that solves problem
