My dish washer is not washing the dishes on the top shelf and leaves a sand like residue on top of the cups and glasses. I have washed out the top spraying arm and washed the dish washer out with vinegar.

There is so much debris left on the dishes after the dishwasher has run, it's almost not worth running it. The debris is mostly small hard bits on the inside of glasses from the top shelf. Is this a...


this is a maintenance problem.. if the bits look like grains of sand it is actually food particles that breaks down during the cycle spraying the cups and glasses (usually the top shelf that gets hit worst). solution is to run a dishwasher cleaner through the system on a hot wash. To remove and wash bottom filters and spray arm jets. Lastly when loading the DW make sure excess food are scraped/rinsed off ...you will get better results. Thanks

I have just moved into a new rental & the Technika Bellissimo Dishwasher isn't cleaning the dishes particually on top shelf. I have cleaned dish washer from top to bottom (arms as well)It is driving me...


That looks like the Washing powder residue. I am having a similar problem. But I am finding that the heating element isn't working anymore and hence can't rinse with hot water thus appears the soapy residue which dries into a 'sandy' substance as you say. Sorry no solution for you yet, can you check if when it finishes and you open it - its still hot inside?

Dishes on top shelf, usually cups and glasses, not washing correctly. Have tried rinsing cl eanser to no avail


Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. Might also be worth checking the other 2 spray arms at the same time.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Kenmore Dishwasher not cleaning dishes - especially top rack.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

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.
