My dishes and silverware don't seem to be cleaning as well as it use to. Is there something I can look for or is it just old age as my Whirlpool Dishwasher is about 12 1/4 years old?

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Film left on glasses. doesn't seem to clean any dishes very well, expecially silverware.


Two other possible causes are a high mineral content in the water, or depending on the silverware, they maybe getting etched.

Use a Rince Aid to eliminate this problem. Don't use powder or old dishwasher soap.

The dishes don't get clean


Dishes not cleaned properly....
 
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Either:
  1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
Good luck,

Food particles left on dishes. Whirlpool quiet partner 1


You do not have to take it apart to clean it. You can run it a couple of times with dishwasher tablet and it will self clean. In general I recommend rinsing the food off of the dishes and silverware before placing items into the dishwasher. Also, run the hot water in the sink until it gets hot and then turn on the dishwasher. good luck with it.

Silverware container


If we are talking about the quiet partner 3 the silverware container can actual hang more effectively on the lower dish rack itself as opposed to on the door. The flap also does just snap on. Hold the back side of the metal with your thumb while pusing with even pressure on the plastic flap. I still reccomend though hanging the whole assembly on the outside of the lower rack.

Dishes not drying and mildew growing in dishwasher


I totally agree with Solution #1. We have a Whirlpool (apparently Maytag is the same) and it gets moldy 2 days after it has been run. The maintenance guy came out and said we had to use the rinse cycle every day. For an $800 dollar dishwasher (which is less than 1 year old!) I expect more.
