I have weird problem, after washing cycle completes some of the cups on top rack are dry inside (they are turned upside down) and some cups are cleaned inside. The whole left part basically dry inside, some cups on right do have water inside them and cleaned. There were nothing on bottom rack preventing water to reach top rack.
Re: Only some cups on top rack are getting cleaned
It sounds as if you have some rollers missing on the bottom rack which lets the rack sit on the sprayer therefore not letting it spin. You should have 4 rollers on front and 2 on back of rack. If you are missing two on one side, take one from the other side until you can get some more. Just make sure you have a roller on all four sides of the rack

Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
Confirm wash arm has rotated
Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
Use small tweezers to remove
Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.
Hi, what you are currently experiencing is as a result of dishwasher detergent, combined with mineral deposits from hard water, which in yurn can leave a white film on the inside of the dishwasher. You have to clean the dishwasher by sprinkling baking soda onto a damp cloth. Scrub the inside of the dishwasher to remove soap scum, grime and mineral deposits. Pour 2 cups white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher on and run it on a full cycle. Stop the dishwasher halfway through the wash cycle and allow the vinegar and steam to work on the remaining mineral deposits for 20 minutes before resuming the cycle. Open the dishwasher and dry the interior with clean, dry cloths. Keep the door propped open for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the dishwasher to dry completely.
White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results. You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.
Mine has been doing the same thing for about 2 months now.. I tried Finnish brand diswasher cleaner, but to no avail. Try this:
1) Empty your dishwasher, then take out the lower rack.
2) Start a regular cycle. Wait until you hear the jets turning, then open the door. Make sure there is enough water in the bottom - It should be just UNDER the heating element.
3) If your dishwasher is getting enough water, Reset your washer and allow it to drain.
4) Go to the store and get a gallon jug of white vinegar. Start your dishwasher on a regular cycle.
5) Once you hear the jets turning, Open the door and add FOUR CUPS (liquid measure) of white vinegar to the water in the bottom. Let the wash cycle complete.
6) When the wash cycle drains, the rinse cycle will fill. Once the rinse cycle starts, add ANOTHER FOUR CUPS of white vinegar to the first rinse cycle.
7) Allow the first rinse cycle to drain. Let the second rinse cycle complete normally.
I know this sounds too good to be true, but it REALLY DID work for me, this evening as a matter of fact! I also bought some hard water/soap film detergent additive from the store. It was kind of expensive, but I'm using it for a while just in case.
I hope this helps. Like I said, I couldnt believe it when my dishes came out clear again! Also, I turned OFF the heated dry cycle, and just opened the door and pulled out the racks when it was done.
check and make sure that you are getting water too the top rack place a cup or mug upright in the top rack turn the dishywasher on for about 2 minutes you should a least have filled the cup up half way if not to the top. if you are not getting water to the top rack check to make sure that you have enough water in the unit. also before starting the wash you want to point the wash arm in the same direction to make sure that they are turning. Do they turn? when you are finished with a cycle do you see steam or is it cold inside. let me know what you find.
You can replace the whole top assembly. And before you run the cycles again, try putting a cup of Tang (dry) orange juice through the cycle without any dishes or get some Dishwasher Magic and you'll have a sparkling new dishwasher once again! hope this helps you!
If you have checked everything that was mentioned (and none of them are the issue) then either the heater inside the unit is not coming on during the wash and rinse cycles and/or the fan motor inside the door is not coming on during the dry cycle. A technician can easily check this out with the correct tools and by putting the unit into test mode.
As for the top rack dishes being dirty and there being soap left in the dispenser, this sounds like wash motor is either weak or the vario motor is not switching between the upper and lower spray nozzles. The sump assembly should be replaced for this issue.
HEATED DRY.Turns the drying heater on for fast drying. ENERGY SAVER (no heat boost). Turns the drying heater off to save energy. Dishes will dry naturally over a longer period such as overnight. lf you need your dishes sooner, open the dishwasher door after the cycle is complete to reduce the natural drying time. Use of this option reduces the electrical energy used by this model approximately 7%. A rinse agent makes water flow off dishes quicker than usual. This lessens water spotting and makes drying faster, too. Make sure inlet water temperature is correct.(SeePage6.) Unload the bottom rack first.Water from dishes in the top rack may be spilling in to the bottom rack. Check for improper loading.Dishes shouldn’t nest together. Avoid overloading. Check the rinse agent dispenser to see that it’s not empty.
Inlet temperature....Good Dish washing starts with hot water, To get dishes clean and dry,you will need hot water.To help you get water of the proper temperature, your dish washer automatically heats the water in the wash cycle. For good washing and drying , the entering water must be at least 120°E To prevent dish damage, inlet water should not exceed 150”F. How to test water temperature: Check the water temperature inside your dishwasher with a candy or meat thermometer. Let the dishwasher run through one fill and pump out cycle, then let the dishwasher fill with water the second time. When you hear the water stop filling, unlatch the door and slowly open it. Measure the temperature of the water in the bottom of the tub this way: Remove the silverware basket and place a candy or meat thermometer in the water towards the middle of the tub. If the temperature is less than 120”F,you will not get good washing results. Higher water temperature is needed to dissolve grease and activate powder detergents. If the unit is a long way from the DW you may need to let the water run in the sink until hot before starting the DW....or if is a cold day and water has not been used in a while the pipes could be cold....also if you have just used the hot water ( washer, shower...etc) give it time to recover first before using DW....All of the above mentioned material is straight out of the Users guide...but you may have an element that is going out also...so check the temp of your water and open it during the drying cycle to see if it is hot or at least warm inside...if not your element may need to be replaced...
I hope this helps...have a great day & good luck...please rate my effort.... the Fang.
