SOURCE: dishwasher problems

TURN POWER TO OFF ... REMOVE THE LOWER RACK. THE SPINNING SPRAY BAR USUALLY WILL LIFT SRAIGHT-UP AND OUT ... INSPECT TO SEE IF ANY THING IS IN THERE TO PREVENT IT FROM SPINING FREELY ... THEY SPIN BY WATER PRESSURE SO THE NEXT THING TO CHECK IS THE WATER SUPPLY VALVE (MOST OF THE TIME IT IS RIGHT UNDER YOUR SINK.) AND THE STARAINER is LOCATED WHERE IT CONECTS TO THE DISH WASHER. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BUCKET AND RAGS HANDY FOR SPILLS... CAREFULLY TURN THE VALVE OFF AND REMOVE THE COMPRESSION FITTING NUT THAT IS ON THE "SIDE CLOSEST TO THE WASHER".... THEN CRACK THE VALVE OPEN AND FILL THE BUCKET UP A FEW TIMES TO ENSURE GOOD WATER FLOW. TURN VALVE "OFF" AND GO TO WERE THE LINE OR HOSE CONNECTS TO THE WASHER. REMOVE THE CONNECTION ... INSIDE YOU SHOULD FIND A STRAINER THAT MAYBE CLOGGED UP. CLEAN-IT AND MAKE SURE TO TIGHTEN ALL THE CONNECTIONS BEFORE STARTING A TRIAL RUN. NOTE: THERE IS A SOLENOID INSIDE THE MACHINE THAT CAN STICK AND GET CLOGGED BUT USUALLY ITS THE VALVE OR THE STRAINER. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY ... Joe_Rex

SOURCE: dishes don't get clean. soap

Water from the wash arms must be able to reach the detergent cup during the wash. It sounds as though the machine may be over-loaded during the wash and water does not cause the detergent to mix with the wash tank water. Try washing a cycle with nothing in the machine. Does the detergent still stick to the door?
If no, the machine is overloaded. Wash fewer items or smaller items so spray will contact detergent.
If yes, you have probably lost wash pressure. Clean all screens and jets.
Hope this helps,
Kermit

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Ultra

I may have the answer. I had what sounded to be the same problem. I found the dishes were dirty after they were cleaned, but I found there may have been a big pot lid blocking the upper arm. I decided to run the machine again, and after a bit opened the dishwasher after to make sure it was not a problem with the arm. Sure enough, the arm wasn't moving. However, I found out on the Frigidaire webpage that some models have an alternating spray cycle, where only one arm spins at any given time. After reading this I checked again, and it had moved by that time. I checked a few times more to confirm this. So it ended up it was an arm blockage after all. Hope this helped...good luck.

SOURCE: middle arm of dishwasher not spinning

I'm the one that reported the same problem in November as "Guest". I fixed mine finally. I removed the middle arm again and noticed that the holes that spray a jet ot water causing the arm to turn aren't the ones on top. On the bottom of the arm there's a small hole at each end. I looked and one of the holes had a small piece of crud in it. I had to use the tip of an ice pick to dislodge it back into the arm. I then ran water into the arm several times hoping to get the item completely removed. I never did see anything come out but I then ran water through the arm holding it so the water could run out one end. The piece didn't show up in the hole again so I tried washing it to the other end. It still didn't show up so I guess it must have washed out the first time. It's been 3 or 4 weeks now and the arm is still functioning perfectly. Hard to believe that one little piece of trash can cause so much irritation. Good luck on this being the problem for others.

Poor Cleaning and getting worse


A common cause of poor washing is improper loading—dishes block or impede the spray arms or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. Your home's water pressure may be too low, the water may be too hard, you may not be using the right amount of detergent, or the water temperature may not be hot enough
