How do I clean my dishwasher when the top rack is not working properly?


Most likely the small holes in the top spinning arm are clogged and you might need to clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. You can do this yourself and you will notice a huge difference in the way the washer performs. Follow the instructions in the you tube video. I always use Dry jet liquid finisher it helps keep the dishwasher clean. You can run white vinegar through the system as well after you clean the filter.

Why are my top rack dishes not clean at all?


It is likely that sufficient water is not coming from the top arm. These dishwashers oscillate the water flow between top and bottoms sprays alternatively. This ensures water is pumped with adequate force. It is possible this mechanism is not working correctly. The device called check ball item 58 in this diagram actually does this function. The ball might be out of shape or not sitting properly causing incorrect wash water movement.

I have an Electrolux icon floor model. I set it to clean after pulling the racks, the lock light came on but nothing happened. I left it for about 15 mins and still nothing. I turned off the clean cycle...


On the E30EW85ESP3 model I had to pull the racks "and" the supports mounted on the side walls. Otherwise it would not allow the clean cycle to begin. Hope this helps.

Dishes not clean?


Check all the water jet orfices in the moving arm. Try cleaning without loading the top rack.

If cleans well, mostly the upper rack dishes not arranged properly.

I hope you are using the main wash detergents. Rinse aid is just to remove the stains after the main wash rinse.

Our Kitchenaid isn't cleaning the dishes, especially the top rack.


check that the upper rack water feed tube is inserting properly to tube inlet.you can verify this by observing under the top rack near the rear of unit closest to the back wall of tub....chances are the manifold is going "beside'the tube instead of properly enclosing tube so water will feed into spray arm vs shooting at the door

Our dishwasher is type no:575-0, model:665.17369301.dishes r not getting clean properly.


This may help you.
I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

Dishwaser working,but not cleaning dishes properly


unfortunately, there is no way to run it and see what it is doing. the only way to check if the spray arms are working properly is to put your ear up to the dishwasher while it is running. you should hear the water spraying along the door panel on both the top and bottom ( Note: some dishwashers run the spray arms simultaneously and sometimes they run at seperate times ).
another thing to check is your water temperature. the water must be 120 degrees in the dishwasher in order to clean the dishes properly. also, if your kitchen sink takes a while to get hot water, you will need to run the sink first prior to starting the dishwasher. I have to apply this method at my house because it takes a while for the water to get hot at my sink. if I run it without starting the sink, the water in the dishwasher is 80 degrees or so and will not clean properly.

It not cleaning good


First detergents, make sure that its not expired. 2) some dishwashers do better with liquid or powder, so try each one, brands can vary also.

If hard water use more detergent soft less.

If only not cleaning on top rack you have a water pressure issue.

Also ensure you are properly putting the dishes on the rack, incorrect dishes restrict flow, pressure, and cleaning action.
