Hi,



I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II does not clean the upper rack of dishes properly. They are greasy. I have checked the top spray arm for blockages. There were none. I am fairly certain that water is

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.

Whirlpool GU1200XTLB1 dishwasher takes over two hours to finish cycle. is there a reset? or some other problem?

Check the wash cycle mode setting you have selected. Refer user manual. Two hrs cycle looks to be OK.

Check the water inlet flow also. Clean strainer. Slow fill of wter will lengthen the time of operation.

The dishes on the top shelf does not seem to get clean. Does not appear water is coming out of the top spinning module.

Take out the top spinner and clean it thoroughly with descaler and degreaser / very hot soapy water. Soak it for a while and it will work wonders. Put it back in the machine and it will work like new.

Dishes on top shelf are not comming clean

Check these things out.

Debris caught in spray arm holes. Remove spray arm and clean out with water and compressed air.


Heating element burned out. Check water temp during wash--should read between 130 to 140 F.


Insufficient water fill in basin. In most models, proper fill level is just up to the heating element. Much less than this will result in poor cleaning.

Dishwasher does not clean items on top shelf.

Check the upper spray arm holes for debris that may be plugging up the spray arm. If clean remove the lower spray arm and filter screen and clean out any debris in the sump.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf

You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Whirlpool Gold Mod GU2500XTPQ1

sound like a low water level and or pressure issue. Start machine on normal cycle after filling open door and ck water level. should be up toJUST below heater assy.. assumiong htats good set hte wash arms to a set positon so you can watch for rotation. close the door adn after a few secs open rapidly and look for middle arm to be spinning, even the top 3rd row arm if present, should be spinning spinning . if not its possible that the motor/sumo assy is blocked w/ foriegn debris. remove the lower spray arm (hold the nut and spin arm)then remove 4 or 5 torx 15 screws. probly pretty glogged under there. if not id look into replacing motor sump assy/seals worn and not throwing water where it should go
