Whirlpool model dp8500xxn2 Leaving white film on everything


Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes. At the end of the cycle the separator is flushed out and the trapped dirt goes down the drain. If it doesn't get flushed out the dirt builds up till it starts showing up on the dishes. Some separators have a hole on top and one on bottom with a valve which stops up one hole or the other depending which cycle it's running. The valve can be stuck or broken causing the problem.

Dishwasher leaves dirt on top rack


Still worth checking for hot water though, stop machine when you know its at a stage where the water is suppose to be hot. Also when the machine is loaded that the top arms are able to spin freely without hitting anything. Also make sure top arm holes have not got any old foo stuck in as this will stop them from spinning properly. Open door during wash and close door then re open to see how far around it has gone. Not as powerful as the bottom arm but shouldnt be that far of.

Most dishwashers have a soil separator which separates the soil from the water while it's washing. When a wash cycle is over a valve opens in the separator to allow the soil to go down the drain. If it's not working properly the washer will leave a film or food particles on the dishes.
It's under the lower spray arm. Post your model number and I may can find a diagram for you. Dishwasher- Inside the doorjamb on the top, left or right. On the door edge top left or right. Portable models on the back.

The powder dispenser on my ls 610a dishwasher does not seem to work properly. There is always powder left in the dispenser and the dishes are not always washed properly.


Try to make sure that the path for water isn't blocked to the dispenser. Ours will do that too if we forget to leave some space for the streaming water to hit the little tray.

Dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine


The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

Bottom spray arm not rotating


The arm usually will stop rotateing because there is a obstuction in the arm itself you will need to remove the arm normally unclips (older machine used to scew off)When you have the arm out check all hole top and bottom and open any that are blocked rinse out arm and replace give it a wash and see if there is any improovement,let me know.
Thanks

It is leaving soapy taste on dishes


you are using way to much detergent. and it is probably a stainless steel dishwasher. you should run a cup of vinegar on the top rack face up with nothing else in the dishwasher and no more detergent. run the vinegar in the dishwasher 3 times and then only cover the detergent tray a third of the way when washing the dishes.. do not put any detergent in the prewash slot.
