Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!


Welcome to FixYa,Based on your description... I`d suspect a plugged or really dirty wash pump. It could ultimately be a worn out wash impeller/chopper assembly, but I'd certainly try my suggestions before considering that. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

We have a 2 draw F & P dishwasher but at the end of a cycle the cups in the cup rack do not seem to be clean on the outside. We place the cups face down, the inside seems to get clean O.K. but there is a often a film left on the outside of the cup. What could be cuasing this?


If the problem does not get fixed by increasing the rinse aid quantity setting, and assuming you do not live in a hard water area, I would recommend buying a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit (2 pieces) and run dishwasher on high temperature cycle one d ...

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

We have a model GU1200XLT1 dishwasher. For over a year, we have a problem with debris being left on the dishes/glasses. We got sandy like debris in the left front section, top rack, after it has cycled. Mostly on the outside of whatever is in that part of the top rack. How do we get rid of this debris problem? Is there some filter that needs to be cleaned? We also have problem with mold/mildew inside dishwasher. I have cycled it with bleach, ammonia, or vinegar, which temporarily sol

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 bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working? It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!

My dishwasher has stopped cleaning plates properly. It makes everything wet but at the end of the cycle the detergent block is half dissolved at the bottom. I have just run a cycle and opened the door during this. The bottom is full of soap suds and water and the top spray bar is dripping water after I open the door but when I close and then reopen a few secs later the top spray bar has definetly not rotated. The water is also not hot, this dishwasher is a cold fed only machine so I guess the el

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.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher that won't rinse the glasses in the top rack. The chopped up food bits from the other dishes are left in the bottom of the glasses. I don't think it's a problem with the wash cycle as the glasses are cleaned of the material they went in with. I think the rinse cycle is depositing excess food onto the glasses.

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

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

The dishwasher is not cleaning. It has left a residue all over the dishes especially colored plastic ware glasses. like it doesn't rinse but i have ran the extra rinse cycle and residue is still there. It has actually stained the dishes. Then ceramic dishes are not clean. And ones on the top rack feel like there is a coating on them that does not come off unless you rinse by hand.

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

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it. I had the motor replaced (supposedly with a new) one 2 years ago so I find it hard to bel
