Top shelf wont wash


Make sure the spray arm can be rotated by hand. Then check the spray holes in the arm to make sure they are not plugged. (Sometimes calcium or food particles can plug them). If plugged use a straightened paper clip to clean them. If this still doesn't fix the problem try putting a couple of cups of vinegar into the washer and run through a full cycle with no dishes. These suggestions should help and I hope they do.

After a full cycle the dishes are covered with pulverized food on top shelf only.


Most (if not all) dishwasher have a food grinder in them just like a "garbage disposal" in your sink. (It's NOT really meat to be a garbage disposal)
In any case if the ground food is ending up back in the washer it means its not being flushed out when the washer empties.
You will need to remove the bottom rack and the bottom spinner. Open the pump and clear any debris The round tank tat the lower arm sits on should also be cleaned out. If the washer is over 5 yrs old consider replacing the impeller and all the pump hardware also.
Without specific Make and Model I cannot give you detailed instructions or parts #s. When asking about things like this alway have the make and model # Good luck

Food particals only on the upper shelf


Sounds like either the upper arm is clogged, or unable to move. Make sure nothing is in the way and that it can spin freely. Then, get lemishine machine washer (at grocery store) and run a cycle through - if it's hard water filling the holes, that'll solve it. Sounds too simple - but it actually worked for my exact machine.

Food gets stuck on dishes especially in the top rack.


There is a waste filter in the bottom under the lower spray arm that needs to be cleaned periodically. If you are not cleaning it, it may be redepositing food particles on your dishes.
remove and clean the filter, and see if that helps.

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

Regular cycle no longer cleans well


Thanks for the clarification (we get a lot of people on here that don't know how to really use a dishwasher).

Sounds to me like the DW may need a through going over.

Confirm the make and model of the DW so I can see how it's built. I am suspect that with all the food particles and film you mention, that the spray heads are clogged in the spray bars, and, check that the drain hose is not kinked, and it's attachment into the garbage disposal is clear. I've had these clog before, limiting the ability of the DW to get rid of the dirty water.

Dishes on top rack don't get clean


The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:

1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.

3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.

4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.

THese things should make a huge difference.

Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe
