Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher - GU2700XTSB The top rack of the dishwasher is not cleaning. The bottom rack dishes clean fine. There are no clogs in either the bottom or top spinner arms, the plastic tube feeding water from the bottom pump to the top rack spinner arm is clean, the spinner arms all rotate freely and do not bind. Water pressure is correct and water temperature is correct. There are no lime or hardwater deposits or clogs. What could be the issue?

Water not going into dishwasher. We turned off the water temporarily because we first had a leak. Fixed the leak and tried the dishwasher. It would not drain, the garbage disposer was clogged. We put in a new garbage disposer, hooked up the water again to the dishwasher and now the water will not go into dishwasher. Help!


Is the drain attached directly to the side of the disposal? If so, you didnt take the "knock out" out. Where the drain goes for the washing, there is a block in case the house does not have a washing machine. U need to knock this out with a screwd ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA2000Z Built-in Dishwasher

Hello, I have a Neff Dishwasher S5453X1GB/74 and it's not draining the water out at the end of the cycle. I have unscrewed the filter and released the impeller. I have also cleared the waste pipe that runs to the sink waste and put loads of cleaner in the dishwasher. The pipes seem to be clear as water goes somewhere during the cycle but backs up at the end. A few times when I started a cycle the water did not spray out but I could here the drainer or motor? running. I jetted water through th

I have a whirlpool gold dishwasher model Quiet Partner 3. The top rack is not cleaning the dishes very well. We live in the country and have hard water. I am wondering if there could be a buildup of some sort inside the water arm and causing it to block some of the water. I am wondering if I could put something like C L R in the washing cycle to loosen up the buildup. Do you have any other ideas.


If it is just affecting the upper rack i doubt it is just a plugged spray arm (though i could be wrong). more likely than not you have a blockage on the intake of your spray pump motor. a series of bones, toothpicks, foreign material, etc could be bl ...

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any clogs there. It seems to be making a little bit of a different noise but does still clean the dishes. Does the motor pump the water out and could that be the problem?

Our dishwasher goes through the cycle and finishes fine without water in the bottom. Then within a couple hours, water comes up and sits at the bottom of the dishwasher. Handyman could not figure out why. No clog in place.

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.

Water from my disposal backs up into my hotpoint ($300-model) dishwasher. The dishwasher works fine otherwise. Is there a one way valve in the diswasher that is suppose to prevent reverse flow and/or is there other dishwasher motor problems which could cause this. Actually the Hotpoint Model number is HDA3600N00BB but this website did not recognize that model number so I put in the closest model number closest to mine.


If it's what I think, it's a simple fix. Does your dishwasher drain run along the floor of the cabinet, then up to the disposal? (my guess is yes). There should be an "air gap" between the disposal and dishwasher, this means when it comes out of th ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3400G Built-in Dishwasher

My model KUDP01IL dishwasher used to drain fine. Now it will not drain even after you press cancel. It sounds like the pump is running (2 minutes) but water remains at the bottom.

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.
