Viking dishwasher not cleaning bottom rack of dishes

\015 I have a Viking dishwasher DFUD042 and it has recently stopped cleaning the bottom rack of dishes. \302\240Both wash arms freely rotate and I can't find any obstructions in the holes on the wash arms. Is there anything in these dishwashers that would cause water to get pumped to upper arm but not pumped through the lower arm?\015

Answers :

Yes there is the Water Div valve, it diverts the water between the wash arms.
Kgt1962. I have same problem with the lower rack not cleaning. the lower wash arm just sits on top of the plastic opening at the supply pipe. it just flops around. Is this normal?

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?

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.

Our dishwasher is approximately 13 years old. Today I turned it on and it did not clean the dishes. After trying to wash the dishes three times, the dishes on the bottom rack were clean but the top rack dishes, the door, and the dispensor were not clean. Help.

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 have a Kitchen aid dishwasher which works fine to clean dishes on the bottom rack but doesn't clean dishes on the top rack. I can't figure out how to clear debris out of the bottom that might be clogging the hose to the top.

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?

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

Our Whirlpool dishwasher, DU1145XTPBA, has almost quit cleaning the dishes. It started with dishes on the top rack. My husband was told by rep to replace the top unit. That did not help at all. Now the bottom dishes are almost as dirty and gritty as the top rack. This dishwasher is too new to have to be replaced and we've already spent $50 on the top rack. Is there anything else to check at this point?

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

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.

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b
