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 have a bosch SHU6802UC dish washer. Recently the cycles were getting very long (3+ hours) and now when you press power/start, the unit turns on and you can hear the rather loud hum (pump?) of the cycle starting but it does not do anything else, just continues the loud hum. No cycle, does not fill with water, nothing. I ran the diaognostic and it immediately came up "7" on the display. Any thoughts or direction would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I did thuroughly clean it which made no di

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher. Lately it has been sounding like the top sprayer is working only sporadically. The cycle begins & it sounds like it doesnt begin spraying until halfway thru the cycle. I open it & check it & see it's not turning. I've cleaned out the holes the best I can. It does this with the rinse cycle also. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

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

Turns on, the entire cycle runs, but no water pumps through the sprayer. There is water present on the bottom....and I can here the water pumping in at the beginning of the cyle....but the dishes are not being 'washed' by the sprayers. I have disassembled and cleaned the entire inside and sprayers to no avail. Im thinking its a pump/motor issue but Im not sure because the sprayers spin, the heat comes on, the detergent dispenses....but no water is being sprayed. Thanks.

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product.

Even though they did not put anything in the bottom drawer it too comes on by it self and shows F1. I can not find our manual. Please help. Thank you so much. Kim Toth

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

Whirlpool dishwasher Clean light is flashing, we just bought it last week and after the third wash, the Clean light started flashing and it won't go off, which stops it from doing anything else. User manul says to have it serviced, but that seems unneccessary. It doesn't seem to be draining completely, so there may be a knk in the pipe, which may be related, just not sure
