My dishwasher wont clean the dishes. The bottom rack gets kinda clean and the dishes on the top rack come out dirty and covered in film.


Check whether the top rack spray arm main hose sits firmly into the
machine. If there is a leak in this area water pressure may not develop.
Also check the water pump in the machine!

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

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

Only washing top rack


After observing the water just gushing out when the spray arm was removed, we determined there was still a bunch more calcification/soap in the ends of the spray arm. (We have very hard water in our area). Unfortunately, you cannot open up the spray arms to clean them out, so it took about 30 minutes of pounding and manipulating to get all the gunk out. Now my dishes are clean again. Hallelujeh! And the water cleaning the dishes is cleaner, as well.
