Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. DU915QW Built-in Dishwasher ?

Glasses in top rack not getting clean anymore.

\015 Mugs and glasses in the top rack are not getting clean anymore in my Whirlpool Undercounter Model DU915PWKBO dishwasher. Water is hot, plenty of pressure, tried less detergent both liquid and granular. Garbage disposal always run before wash as well as water run until hot. Has worked fine for 5 years but past 2 months not so fine. Water drains fine. Any thoughts?Kris\015

Answers :

-Have you changed the dishwasher soap recently? What are you using? Is the powder remaining behind in the soap dispenser?\015\012
\015\012-Have you removed the filter in the sump area, cleaned it and removed any debris under the filter. (watch out for broken glass that is almost always found in 5 year old dishwashers.)
\015\012
\015\012-You are running water at the sink until it gets hot, but you may still have problems if the heating element has failed. Recommend you check that element. If you can get to the element, check resistence of the heater to see if is has any at all.\015\012
\015\012If heating element checks out good, the next common problem is a failing wash pump motor.

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer. None

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.

My dishes are not getting clean, especially the glasses in the top rack. They have a gritty substance on them after a wash session. The bottom rack seems to be okay, but the top rack is not clean at all. I've never had any problems with this appliance at all.

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

The items on the top rack never come out clean. there is always food residue left. it seems that the final rinse doesn't get to the glasses. we need to rinse them all out before the drying cycle starts or else the dirt dries up inside the glasses and we need to make them soak to remove the dirt!

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?

My kitchenaid dishwasher won't wash. The clean light blinks and if I can get it to cycle, it turns on to ''2 minutes'', during which 2 minutes it makes some washer-like sounds but doesn't clean, dry or spit out any water. Before this, I wash having trouble getting my dishes clean. I wash able to get the bottom rack clean using the heavy duty cycle, but the top rack still didn't clean
