I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working? It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it. I had the motor replaced (supposedly with a new) one 2 years ago so I find it hard to bel

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?

We are getting a grit on the dishes on the top rack. We have done many things to solve the problem. Running tang crystles, runing CLR through it, taking it apart to check for blockages, checking the impeller on the pump, blowing comprssed air through it, scrubbing the inside many times. The funny thing is it only happens about every third wash cycle or so. The upper spray arm is free with no obstruction. The dishes on the bottom rack are clean. We use Electosol and jet dry. Our water is softened

Dishes on top rack on not getting clean on the outside e.g. the outside of an inverted cup is dirty and dirty water is collecting in depressions. There doesn't seem to be a mechanism to rinse the dishes from the top. Also water not hot on any cycle so probably need a heating element. Where can I purchase one near 85204 zip code

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.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, model KUDS30IVWH3. The dishes have not been getting as clean lately, the bottom is decent but the top rack is not getting very clean. Also, when I open the door after the cycle is done, there's a bunch of detergent at the bottom of the door and on the floor of the dishwasher, like it isn't getting sprayed all over or something. Don't know if I have to check the water intake valve or if maybe the sprayers could be partially clogged.

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?
