7-8 year old KitchenAid washes dishes on bottom, but not on top

Generally speaking, the dishwasher is completely washing the dishes and silverware that are loaded on the bottom, but over the past month my wife has noticed that the glasses and bowls on top rack are not getting washed at all.

Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.

DU940gwdg3 dishwasher does not wash well. Top, bottom and silverware come out dirty


Is the heating water element getting hot? Is the filter screen in the bottom of the basin clear of food debris? Do you pre-rinse the items being washed?

Filter needs cleaning. How do I get at the filter?


Dishwasher filters are important to catch food particles and other debris. The dishwasher cleans small portions of food from the dishes, cooking pans and silverware. These particles must go somewhere. The drainage system on the washer may clog if filters are not present. Most Maytag dishwasher models have two types of filters, "Coarse" and "Fine." You should clean the "Coarse" filter after two or three wash loads. The "Fine" filter can wait for a cleaning for about 300 loads or three months.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Sink sponge
  1. Empty the dishwasher. Remove all dishes including pots, pans and silverware.
  2. Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible. The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers. It may be convenient to lift the rack out. Typically, if you lift, the wheels leave the track.
  3. Remove the "Coarse" filter. This filter is a small, round knob in the middle of the "Fine" filter. A round knob is around the "Coarse" filter. Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.
  4. Knock the contents of the "Coarse" filter into the garbage can. Run the faucet to remove smaller particles. Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge if debris is stuck-on. Push back into the filter holder when complete.
  5. Take out the "Fine" filter. Turn the round knob that is around the "Coarse" filter counter-clockwise. Once the knob is loose, pull up. The "Fine" filter will come out of the dishwasher.
  6. Rinse the "Fine" filter with the hot water faucet. Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments. Replace the filter into the dishwasher. Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.

My Maytag dishwasher is 9 years old-- Model number MDB7100AWW, serial number 27754072ZQ It has worked fine until about a month ago, when I began noticing a kind of "scum" on the silverware and some of...


Using a light lubricant, you might place a drop or two of oil on the upper rack's rail wheels or the bottom if either squeaks when pulled out. Take a look at the wheels on each rack (up and lower) to see if either is damaged or is not rolling properly on the rails. There's nothing to explain the "scum" other than the water coming into the machine....Cascade is a good brand and a minimal amount is needed for each load. The CUP located in the door of most machines will hold about twice what's required to clean a load of dishes,pans,etc. Cascade has a RINSE AGENT included in its manufacture. Be sure to rinse your dishes well before loading. Try different settings and see if it makes a difference.
If you have the time, take the lower rack completely out, when the machine is cold and the water has been pumped out of the chamber. With your fingers, feel around the bottom-center, check for debris, forks or other objects that can sometimes collect under the lower plate and under the drying element.
There's little to speak of, dishwashers are merely "boxes with spinning hoses and a drying element" so any liquid "coming-into" the wash-cycle is a function of your local water supply and plumbing. Sometimes "hard" water causes a "scum" and people will use softeners which are installed outside and will "clarify" water before inputting into your house. That would be a last resort.

Dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle


Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

My new ge dishwasher let my glasses and dishes uncleaned


I had a similar problem. Mine was leaving hard water deposits on my dishes. He had me take all of the metal out of the dishwasher (silverware, pots and pans, etc. Then run about 3/4 of a cup of Santeen de-limer through it. IT would clean the inside of the dishwasher nice, and would fix the problem. Unfortunately the hard water deposits would come back after a month or so, but would again be cleared by the Santeen...

Odour from dishwasher


Your dishwasher needs to wash itself. To do this, empty it of all dishes, silverware, etc. Add two cups of vinegar. Run the longest and hottest cycle you have to completion.

There you now have a clean dishwasher once again.

Dishes come out with a white, chalky film, not very clean.


are you using palmolive eco liquid detergent? if so - google "palmolive eco white residue" and you will find out that your detergent is the culprit. the solution is to use 1/2 cup of vinegar in your rinse cycle and soap dish and STOP USING PALMOLIVE ECO!
