Sandy glasses The dishes on the top rack come out with a sandy residue on them....we have tried running it with the jet dry dishwasher cleaner, the vinigar and baking soda...have taken apart and checked all filters and water supply...no help with any of that. I also wonder how much water should be in there when it is running...shouldn't it cover the heating coil in the bottom? My water level is just below the coil.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher and there is not any water coming out of the top wash arm. There is good water pressure coming out of the lower washarm. I pulled out the dishwasher and can see the water going to the top washarm through the tube and it goes up very slowly. I took out the "check ball" below the lower washarm and it worked good. I put the "check ball" back in and ran the machine on "Upper Rack" and it still does not have any water coming out of the upper washarm. It doesn't seem lik

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin.

I have FGHD2433KF1, and there is a leakage from the splash guard. I open the front cover of the door and noticed that when a large amount of water rushes against the front door, water comes over the gasket and fills the splash guard. The dishwasher stops the water when the water is just about to reach the top of the guard, but sometimes the water comes over the top of the guard. That is when the leakage occurs. I noticed that there has been a replacement gasket for some of the Frigidaire dis

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model number DU1055XTPQ4 that is not cleaning the dishes. When the dishwasher is working, the bottem arm is turning and water comes out the holes. The middle arm has some water coming out, but does not turn. The top arm does nothing. It appears I have a pressure problem. I took out all the arms and cleaned them, along with the plastic tube that feeds them water. They had some build up on them but not much. I have the same result as before. I took off the

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon. Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an

Figidare dishwasher Upper arm not rotating, no water coming from top hole to fill upper arm.Lower arm rotates shoot water up cleaned filter screens. Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve ... Dishwashers

Frigidaire dishwasher (Electrolux FDB750RCB0) does not move water through the hose to the upper wash/spray bar. The lower wash/spray bar has pressure enough to turn. With the dish washer out from under the counter I can see the water rise very slowly up the translucent hose. If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw

Run on the normal cycle the dishes come out smelling "fishy". I refill the jet dry every 2 weeks--it always seems empty and I know that's not normal for dishwasher use. Even the empty dishwasher has a "smell". Our water is excellent for drinking--it is not well water and has no odor. Please advise before I have to buy a new dishwasher. Our dishwasher is a Quiet Partner II.

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?

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub
