    My dishes on the top rack aren't getting clean. In addition, the soap in the soap dispenser often isn't completely used up during a wash. I have checked to see if both arms are clogged, and neither are. I checked the tube at the back of the washer that supplies water to the arms, and that was clean as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The top and middle spray arms are not spraying and and not spinning. We have checked to make sure there are no clogs, and everything is clear. We have also checked the gaskets for any rotting and it apears as though it's sealing appropriately. Are there any other solutions?

There is a rubber boot connecter in the back of the top rack which slips over a pipe coming up the back of the unit. This is how the water gets to the top rack. That boot is subject to rot and breaking. Check and see. It should be easy to replace, if you can get the part.

Are you putting a large plate knife, spoon or pot in the bottom of the dishwasher and preventing the arm under the cup rack from rotating?

The top rack is not cleaning. The dishes on the bottom rack come out clean but the ones on the top rack don't look like they have even seen water?



Hi



If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it

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!

Asko 1996 appears "dead".....no lights flashing, won't respond to repeatedly pushing on/off button. Some water left in the bottom...siphoned it out, cleaned filters, no blockage there. Almost like it's...


Don't know if this will help, but my dishwasher has a "propeller" device above the top and bottom racks that spins while dispensing the water. If the dishes on either rack are stacked too high (i.e. if even one plate comes in contact with that propeller, keeping it from spinning properly) the dishwasher will go through its full cycle but will not use the soap (soap door will still be closed and soap packet still intact) and will not get the dishes clean.
However, it sounds like you either have a bit of a drain issue as well--or perhaps your dishwasher acts the same way as mine (if that's the case) but ceases to drain as well if blocked.

Only bottom rack cleans. Re-plumb or replace?


Do you have a garbage disposal? If I run mine while the dishwasher is running, dishes do NOT get clean!

The top rack of dishes never come clean, but the bottom dishes do. What's wrong with it?


It may be the way you load your dishwasher.
The best way to load it is bowls and small items in front, larger plates in the rear.

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

Top shelf items dirtier after cleaning


After some experience with our own fdw60 with the same problem, we now put all pots and pans on the top rack. Putting them on the bottm appears to stop the clean water rinse reaching the top rack. All washes since have been ok.
