You can try and run 1 cup white vinegar through a cycle.  if that doesn't do it, you can purchase a product called "Dishwasher Magic" available at k-mart and sears and see if that helps.

Filter stops up on dishwasher


it is working correct, the salesman told you there was a disposal in the unit, there IS NOT. scrap and rinse your dishes prior to starting, also run your sink to get hot water prior to start. the heater is not for heating water.

It's most likely that the filters in your dishwasher are blocked, the best way to clean them is to remove the filters from the bottom of the dishwasher, place them in the racks and run through the hottest wash cycle. It also helps to have a dishwasher cleaner inside the machine at the same time, these are available from most places that sell the dishwasher powder.

Doesn't clean properly, Leaves dry residue in washer


My dishwasher had the same problem. glasses were cloudy, inside the dishwasher was coated with a film, drawers were hard to pull out. tried rinse agents and vinegar and nothing worked. Found lemi-shine at WalMart (it's next to the dishwasher detergent) and the white stuff is gone! no more residue and glasses sparkle again. I was ready to buy a new dishwasher I was so frustrated. get some - it's amazing! a couple bucks and it's back to normal. I was SOOOO happy!

Dishes on top rack do not come out clean. Bottom rack O.K.


Have you tried cleaning the filter? We had a similar problem. The repair man came and removed all the spinners and the other stuff at the bottom above the motor to get to the filter. It was blocked with all kinds of old food bits and pieces, the odd bit of plastic film etc. He cleaned it, replaced it and we havn't had a problem since but he said it needs to be done about every two years. It can be done by someone who has reasonable DYI skills.

Most dishwashers have a little filter basket in the bottom. Depending on the brand, you can slide out the bottom rack, and in the bottom underneath the sprayer (the propeller thing) there should be some sort of basket that can be removed and cleaned. You also may have some water quality issues, or some detergents will leave residue. Also, make sure most of the large food is removed before loading.

GE GSD2200G02CC dishwasher


Your dishwasher probably has rotating blades on the top and bottom that spray water on the dishes.  Clean these off and make sure the holes are not clogged.

Dishwasher is leaving food particles everywhere


Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
