My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer. None

My lower rack will not clean bowls or cups and I have to be very careful how I place plates. The serviceman has been out twice and I have run vinegar through multiple times with no improvement. My top rack is working fine. I have tried running it on different settings and we have verified that the lower wash arm seems to be spinning. The temperature seems to be fine. Even glasses placed on the lower rack that weren't very dirty seem to have a scum in them when finished. Any ideas?

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!


Hello. Since you have already cleansed the interior of your dishwasher, we must conclude that the problem is with the water itself. If you do not have a filter on your water, you may want to consider installing a dirt/rust filter, at least on the h ... Dishwashers

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?


Make sure the arm on top isnt hitting something, each time you load it each in there and spin it to be sure it moves freely, also make sure your rinse agent container is full of rinse agent. ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3740G Built-in Dishwasher

Model SHU33AO2UC /40 The top rack leaves lots of residue and stuff on glasses. We had a repairman out, he cleaned out the pump intake, and we are careful to clean everything before putting it in the dishwasher. I have made sure all holes in the spinners are clean and don't crowd the glasses. We have also tried different detergents. The dishwasher is 4 yrs old and is used daily. We also use jet dry.

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.
