Do you have this problem? How can I fix it?

For those of you who have a dishwasher....Does your dishes on the top shelf get clean? Mine don't!!!!! It's like all the yucky stuff from the bottom part of the dishwasher goes to the top shelf and stays there! No matter how many times I run them through! Its soooo aggrivating! I keep the dishwasher clean...I make sure all the food is off the dishes before I put them in...but still the top shelf FULL of dishes are still nasty! What am I doing wrong?

  • You have to be careful not to overload it so the water can hit everything. I do know when I had one with the spinner in the middle, if I accidently put an item in there that touched it, it wouldn't raise up and spin and wash the upper rack.
    We also use vinegar in the rinse thing. It helps a lot. :)
