I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

I bought a house with a Bosch dishwasher in it and soon found that the top spinner holes are blocked with bits of old labels. I have removed the spinner and separated the concentric tubes but I do not see how to push the debris back along to the inlet. Do I need a power but very small jet to put into the holes along the arm? Would drying it then putting the suction of a vacuum over the inlet hole be useful?

The top drawer of my FP dishwasher is not cleaning everything properly. The glasses or dishes in the front left side are always dirty and are covered with crumby dried residue when the cycle is complete. I took the wire grate out and cleaned the stainless panel on the bottom, I removed the spinning wand armature and made sure the holes were clear. It spins freely. What else can I do?

I have an shx65905uc bosch dishwasher that runs and works except for that there is not enough water pressure to rotate the top wand or operate the top sprinkler. The bottom wand does have water and turn and does the top but it is not enough to turn it. If i remove the bottom wand and plug it off then the top will work properly. I have cleaned all screens and removed the plate to access the pump and all seems fine. Any Thoughts

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?

Assembly I recently purchased a pressure washer from Home Depot. It is rated at 3100 psi. It is a comet pump with a honda gas engine. The assembly instructions recommended that I remove the plug on the top of the pump and replace it with a vented plug that was provided. However, none of the other enclosed manuls talk about the vented plug. Am I reading the assembly insturctions correctly. Should there be a vented plug ?

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?
