In my experience, you probably have a clog in the spray arm/arms for the top rack. Take the arm(s) out and see if the holes in them are clogged. Rice, plastic wrappers, and glass from dishes that broke in there are the most common culprits I've seen.

Make sure your water flow to the top spray unit is not being obstructed by over flow or large objects.

make sure rack connection/seal is in good condition or is even there.

dont know if this unit has a disposal, but ALL food needs to be removed. Non disposal dishwashers have the tendency to leave food on bottom on glasses on top rack(nasty for those looking down the glass @ old washed food particles).

I have some people who buy a dishwasher with a disposal and think it will just wash away and chew up everything, no, no they dont..

Dishwasher leaves upper rack dishes dirty. It's Whirlpool Quiet Partner II


Your water pressure is not high enough in the dishwasher to wash the dishes on the top rack. The most common reason is that the pump in your dishwasher cannot pump fast enough to keep the water pressure up. That is because the shaft that drives the pump impeller also drives the macerator cutter that grinds up bits of food fine enough for it to pass through the screen and out to the drain. Over time, small bits of bone, broken glass, eggshell, and other items that are too strong to be cut up by the cutter end up sitting in the area where it has to spin, and they prevent it from spinning fast enough to pump enough water to the top rack with any pressure. It is simple enough to repair. You need to take out the racks, remove the bottom arm and clean out the little macerator. Once that is done, it should work great again.

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.

MAKE SURE THE UPPER WASHER ARM IS NOT CLOGGED, SOMETIMES FROM DETERGENT BUILD UP IF YOU'RE USING POWDER DETERGENT. CHECK ALSO FROM THE BOTTOM IS THERE'S ANY DEBRIS THAT MAY PREVENT THE WATER GETTING TO THE UPPER WASHER ARM

I have the Whirlpool Quiet (??) Partner II. My


Have this same problem with my Whirlpool DU1145XTBA. Found out that when you start the unit, it fills with water. If the water does not rise above the filter mesh in the bottom center of the unit then the pump doesn't have enough water to supply pressure to the upper sprayer. Had to replace the Flow Meter. It tells the unit how much water to supply to the unit.
