Just bought new Kenmore Ultrawash (1 step down from Elite) and the dishes on the bottom rack are not coming out clean - top rack seems to be doing ok. I'm using powdered D, running hot water 1st, have tried different settings, nothing helps. Should we return it (what a pain!)? Is there a trick to installing that could cause this?

We have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDS02. It is doing a very poor job cleaning dishes on upper rack. Dishes on bottom rack are getting cleaned fine. It seems that water/spray delivery to top rack dishes is weak, as many of dishes retain dirt/debris.

GE Dishwasher, model: GHDA470MBB When you turn it on, the motor seems to run for a minute or two and then just stop. It started not cleaning the top rack, I ran JetDry hardwater cleaner in it. Then the bottom rack didn't seem to be getting clean either. Next, it just doesn't seem to work at all as described above. It is fairly new, bought July 2006 (but wasn't used from March 08 to August 08). Thank you for your advice.

Our Whirlpool dishwasher, DU1145XTPBA, has almost quit cleaning the dishes. It started with dishes on the top rack. My husband was told by rep to replace the top unit. That did not help at all. Now the bottom dishes are almost as dirty and gritty as the top rack. This dishwasher is too new to have to be replaced and we've already spent $50 on the top rack. Is there anything else to check at this point?

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

My Kenmore model 665.16022401 has the problem w/ the clean light flashing. I tried the bottom combo of hi temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry and it re-set my dishwasher but then after I tried to run a new load it doesn't seem like it finishes all the way through because there is still soap left in the soap dispenser and the dishes arn't all clean, plus the green clean light begins flashing again. Don't know what to do.

I am not happy with the racks in my new Bosch dishwasher! The bottom rack is not right! The silverware basket is in the back right corner and the silverware catches on the seal on door and it is hard to get to. The tongs are two close together and point the wrong way? The upper rack's tongs are also to close together also. I don't seem to be able to get larger dishes in with these tongs in the way. Having never used the mdl 9000359119 Rev B I had no idea.
