There are a few possibities...
check the spray arms are clear by removing any blockages in the holes, check that there is enough water entering the d/w by removing the lid (no screws on lid, there are two clips at the rear, release them and the whole lid will slide back and then off) and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you should check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 0428 and 0426. Whilst you have the side panel of, fill the d/w and once the inlet valve closing, reset the machine and watch the drainage thru the left chamber is flowing ok. You can also remove 0420 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removed) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. If the d/w is connected via a sealed spigot to the sink, remove the grey hose and unscrew the spigot adaptor from the sink and ensure there are no blockages.
You have not mentioned that the d/w is not heating so I assume it is, as this could be a problem also. However, although the machine is heating the water is distributed via a motor attached to the heater box that alternates the water between the top and bottom basket. If this is faulty you will find that the d/w will clean one of the baskets beautifully and the other not at all. (unfortunately this will req a new instantaneous water heater which is best fitted by an expert)

I appreciate that this is not you model but the parts should be in the same position.
If you req any further assistance pls repost, if this is helpful pls leave feedback.
Best of luck.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it. I have another question, my dishwasher is 10 years old. Is it just time to replace it?"

  • Roni Davey Jul 12, 2010

    Without actually physical seeing the d/w I wouldn't like to advise on this. I have seen dishwashers that are nearer 20 yrs old and still working perfectly. The maintenance is more important than the age, try to keep on top of this by running a regular d/w cleaner thru it and try to use the machine as intended and not as a waste disposal unit. If the fault you are experiencing at the moment is the heater diversion motor, then I would say yes as it is a reasonably expensive repair and that repair cost may be better served towards the cost of a new machine.

    All the best and thanx for the feedback, Roni.

Top dish rack dishes don't get clean model 8575637


Most dishwashers have a rotating spray bar underneath the upper rack. Over time bits of food can clog up the holes and then dishes won't get clean in the upper rack. Check to make sure all the holes in the spray bar are clear and that it is rotating freely.

Our GE Potscrubber 640 isn't cleaning the top rack items. They are neither cleaned nor rinsed. Does it have something to do with the "Rinse Dispenser" knob on the door? It's always been fully screwed in.


likely not .....the problem may be how you stack the dishes ....try doing a load with nothing on the bottom rack ....if the top rack items come clean then you may be stoping the water from reaching the top rack with the dishes on the bottom rack ....it's important to keep the center of the bottom rack free this is where the water comes from (on most models). to clean your upper rack .....have a close look at the inside of the machine to try and figure out where the water comes from ...it helps a lot to understand this ....good luck

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack


Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.
