The machine may be out of level (tipping forward). Remove bottom toe panel and try raising the front two leveling feet. Also make sure the top of the machine is secured properly to the counter top or cabinet sides.

Can I use my Triciry Bendix dishwasher DH101 if I remove the top. It needs more clearance below the worktop. When I remove the top there is a material, not a solid top.


Listen to hear if dishes are rattling against each other. Cups should be loaded only in the top and care to keep each cup separated from other. Chipping usually will occur when dishes are close together and in contact. The racks are rubberized and would be very unlikely the source.


If the feet are adjusted so the machine will not rock it would be unlikely that the top on or off would have any effect.

The upper shelf is adjustable up or down. Suggest locating upper shelf to the up position.

AEG favorit 40850 dishwasher does not clean properly - help


under the top shelf or in the top of the machine is the water rotor. remove this and ensure none of the holes are blocked, also ensure your macine is not running on 1/2 half load as this may only activate the bottom. it should be set to full load to use both. if rotor bloackage is the problem use somthing to clear it. and also check the bottom one. also remove and clean the inner filter as debris may have got past it and getting pumped to your rotors.

I hope this was useful

Make sure the center loading is not obstructing the water jet to the top shelf. Top shelf is only for glasses and saucers , use Jet-Dry .Pre rinse and clean bottom pan strainer from dirt debris.

Bottom & top draws slide closed on its own ,will not stay open model DD60DCX6


The dishwasher was not install level. You will have to level it. There are leveling screws one on each side at the front of the machine behind the bottom plate Also you may have to take the screw out of the top bracket to get it leveled. Good Luck

My Indesit D63 dishwasher won't close. There is still power to the machine and when you hold the door shut the cycle starts but the door doesn't click shut.


Make sure that the top shelf slides back fully into position. If the flow nozzle does not fully engage onto the water supply jet at the rear of the shelf this prevents the door from closing fully. Sometimes this can be caused by the gasket wearing and preventing engagement this rubber ring is easily replaced and can be fitted by a novice

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher - top shelf not getting dishes clean


Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.

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.
