Top rack doesnt clean anymore - Whirlpool Dishwashers


Answers :

The supply tube that travels up the back of the inside of the dishwasher has two holes with rubber groments that have a flap that should block off the water when the rack is pulled out, sometimes there is an extra gromet supplied that leaks. The nonfunctioning flap or second flap becomes fatigued from repeated exposure to superheated water) and leaks water replace the nonfunctional gromet it may be leaking, I have encountered this problem before ( Note: Identify which gromet is being used by sliding the upper rack in observing which hole the feed tube enters replace the non functional gromet or just replace both to be sure. The other thing to check is the rotating sprayer under the top rack unscrew and clear out the orifices they get plugged up sometimes, some of the screws are torx heads so before attempting this job be sure to have 1/4' drive socket wrench and torx tooling or just have the torx with screw driver handles they work well.

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?

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?

First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II model DU1100XTPQ7. The top rack is not clean after the dishwasher runs. We cleaned both sprayers with pipe cleaner & ran water through the lower sprayer with a hose. Then we let the dishwasher soak overnight with a gallon of vinegar in it. After running that through a cycle, we still see no improvement. We do have very hard water here; I add 1/2 cup of vinegar to every load. Any suggestions? Heather

Are the top rack adjusters on the Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher an owner-serviceable item? Do most Whirlpool parts stores sell the top rack adjusters for the Adjustable 2-position top rack? My dishwasher is five years old and one of the adjusters has broken. The two-position rack seems like a good idea but the plastic part doesn't look like it was built for high-temperature durability.

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 have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

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 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher has been wonderful until recently. In the last 2-3 weeks, the top rack of dishes does NOT get clean - AT ALL. It appears that the spray arm is not moving, or at least not moving much. What can I do myself to check this out and possibly take things apart to see if something is clogged?

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 ...
