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

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

The water is not getting up to the middle spin bar or the top one, so nothing on the top rack is getting cleaned and everything is left with soapy film, so it is not rinsing properly. There is water coming in at the side for the intial fill and from the bottom to wash.

I have an LG ldf7811st dishwasher. My bottom arm spins with water, my middle arm does not spin but does have water coming out, and my top arm doesn't spin or have water. I have just finished taking apart the arms, the supply to the upper arms, the filters and the impeller. I cleaned everything and nothing really seemed clogged. I have tested it since and it still has the same problem. I know that they aren't spinning because i placed them in a certain position before i ran the test run. They

My Frigidaire FDB935RHS0 top rack is not getting enough water (pressure) to rotate the top rack sprayer. We have looked at all the connections under the machine as well as the tubing, but we have not found any obstructions or problems. The water moves very slowly up the tube to the top of the machine and the water only seems to trickle out of the feed line therefore the sprayer doesn't spin or spray. We have disassembled the bottom sprayer and have found no obstructions there either. Do you have

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts. I do not think that there is enough water to spin wash arms. I have 40 PSI coming into the house. I am on well water and found debris in the intake orfice. I did my best to flush. Could it still be bad?

One I can see to recieve the top rack nozzle when the rack is slide into place, but should the other one be covered to prevent all the water from dumping out before getting to the upper nozzles?

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).
