Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly.

The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

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.

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. We also noticed the water in the bottom when opened is not as much and it is cool not hot. The dishes on the top rack will not clean, and the bottom is not completely clean.

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?

I own a GE Profile Built-in Dishwasher Model number is PDW7880G00SS, Serial number is FF7872828.  We have recently been having major cleaning issues with it, especially the top shelf i.e. the glasses.  There is always dried up debris on them.  We always run the water hot and run it on "added heat" cycle.  I was wondering if there is a filter, or an area in the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned out?  Even if I put perfectly clean dishes in there, they will come out dirty, which leads me to thin
