    The top rack seems to be getting no water. There are two blue plastic valves in the back that seem to be working OK. but the dishes don't even get wet. Now the dish soap isn't even disolving all the way. The bottom rack has plenty of water. I have tried hard water disolvents, and an assortment of recommended dishwasher cleaners but nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions?

    Yes, my Whirlpool Gold dishwasher will not clean the dishes in the top rack. It seems like there is no water getting up there at all.

    My top rack dishes (especially glasses) seem to have a grit on them after washing in very hot water, using water wetter, and liquid detergent (name brand). It is very frustrating.

    my dishes on the top rack do not get clean. How do I know if they are even getting water?

    We're having the same issues. I am pretty sure that the top arm is not moving/spraying water. Of course there is no way to watch to diagnose the problem. The bottom rack gets clean but the top rack doesnt even look like it got sprayed at all. I tore the whole thing apart (all the way down to the pump, bottom arm and drain) and that seemed to alleviate the problem, but its back again. Really not happy with this dishwasher.

My Whirlpool dishwasher is only 2 years old and I started having the same problems. I dismantled everything I could and washed and scrubbed the entire unit with EVERYTHING..to no avail, dirty dishes!! But I discovered a remedy! Try using Lemi-Shine for about a week with your regular wash-soap. If you are using the tablet form of soap, stop and try the powdered form. Follow the instructions on the Lemi-Shine container. You can find it just about anywhere for around $3.50. I was within "5 seconds" of replacing my 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher when this caught my eye and I figured why not try it too? After the first wash I noticed a big difference the cleanliness of the dishes..and now it is running GREAT after 2 weeks!

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.

Quiet partner 1 top rack does not get clean at all


Hi,

I would suspect you have debris in the pump that is causing a pressure drop so the water is not spraying well in the upper arm.

Try this procedure to clean out the sump. Let me know if it helps.

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

Top wash rack doesn't get water


does the unit have a half load selection? if so then it may be stuck in half load due to a faulty solenoid in the base.

Upper rack dishes not cleaning well


Yes, run an empty load with 1/4 cup vinegar. It sounds like there is mineral build up in the arm. Try to take the arm apart that supplies water to the top rack of the dishwasher. You can soak this in vinegar water once removed.

The top rack is not getting clean.


This is one common possibility
It may be the food chopper assembly. Mine broke last year from a toothpick,
the food doesn't get chopped because the blades are broken, then the filter clogs and water wont spray high enough.
Heres a test--turn on the dishwasher and wait until you can hear water running then open the door really fast and look at how high the water is spraying--there should be alot of water all over the top rack running down
