The items on the top rack never come out clean. there is always food residue left. it seems that the final rinse doesn't get to the glasses. we need to rinse them all out before the drying cycle starts or else the dirt dries up inside the glasses and we need to make them soak to remove the dirt!

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher is 6 years old, and has worked great but over the past year, glasses placed in the upper front rack have a brown, gritty residue on them at the end of the drying cycle. Everything else comes out clean. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Dishes in the upper rack no longer get cleaned. I've been using this dishwasher since 2004 (purchased new), and have not changed the way I loaded the dishes or the detergent. I called the Kitchen Aid help line, and the rep simply read the owner's manual to me (e.g., stand a glass of vinegar in the dishwasher and run a cycle), which did not address the problem. Any idea what I need to do? Thank you!

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher that won't rinse the glasses in the top rack. The chopped up food bits from the other dishes are left in the bottom of the glasses. I don't think it's a problem with the wash cycle as the glasses are cleaned of the material they went in with. I think the rinse cycle is depositing excess food onto the glasses.

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

I have a Kenmore, Stock 15649, approximately 14 - 15 yrs old that worked fine until the past few days. The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed.

I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and

I have a maytag jetclean quiet pack dishwasher. The top dishes are not getting clean.
