Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1 not cleaning on the top rack

\015 I removed the top cleaning head and removed any debris that may have obstructed the flow. It is still not cleaning on top.\015

Answers :

Turn it on and let it run for a little while. Open the door and check to see how much water is actually in the bottom. Depending on which model you have, you should have at least the entire floor covered in about 1" of water. If it looks like you can fit a couple quarts of hot water in there, do so, and see if that helps.

If it does, you probably need a water inlet valve, because you aren't getting enough water in the machine fast enough. Check the valve knob under the sink first and make sure that it is open just to rule that out.

If you do have enough water in the bottom, you might want to call a repairman... or start taking it apart and checking for anything that is blocking water flow.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes.

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II model DU1100XTPQ7. The top rack is not clean after the dishwasher runs. We cleaned both sprayers with pipe cleaner & ran water through the lower sprayer with a hose. Then we let the dishwasher soak overnight with a gallon of vinegar in it. After running that through a cycle, we still see no improvement. We do have very hard water here; I add 1/2 cup of vinegar to every load. Any suggestions? Heather

I have a whirlpool gold dishwasher model Quiet Partner 3. The top rack is not cleaning the dishes very well. We live in the country and have hard water. I am wondering if there could be a buildup of some sort inside the water arm and causing it to block some of the water. I am wondering if I could put something like C L R in the washing cycle to loosen up the buildup. Do you have any other ideas.


If it is just affecting the upper rack i doubt it is just a plugged spray arm (though i could be wrong). more likely than not you have a blockage on the intake of your spray pump motor. a series of bones, toothpicks, foreign material, etc could be bl ...
