The top rack is not cleaning. The dishes on the bottom rack come out clean but the ones on the top rack don't look like they have even seen water?

My dishwasher wont clean the dishes. The bottom rack gets kinda clean and the dishes on the top rack come out dirty and covered in film.


Check whether the top rack spray arm main hose sits firmly into the
machine. If there is a leak in this area water pressure may not develop.
Also check the water pump in the machine!

Top rack dishes not getting clean


When the dishes on the top rack are not getting clean the most common problem is that the water supply hose in the rear of the top rack is misaligned. With the rack empty, pull out the rack and look in the rear where the supply hose slides into the water supply. Often a plastic clip or two has come apart. Realign everything and it will work fine. If you need a diagram go to sears direct parts where they have an excellent website. Enter your model number and you will be able to see a schematic showing each part and how they go together. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful. thank you.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

Our GE Potscrubber 640 isn't cleaning the top rack items. They are neither cleaned nor rinsed. Does it have something to do with the "Rinse Dispenser" knob on the door? It's always been fully screwed in.


likely not .....the problem may be how you stack the dishes ....try doing a load with nothing on the bottom rack ....if the top rack items come clean then you may be stoping the water from reaching the top rack with the dishes on the bottom rack ....it's important to keep the center of the bottom rack free this is where the water comes from (on most models). to clean your upper rack .....have a close look at the inside of the machine to try and figure out where the water comes from ...it helps a lot to understand this ....good luck
