Ok. I did as you asked:
David, The 3500 rpm motor is no longer available, and has been replaced by the 3000 rpm motor. But that's not the issue, the reduction in rpm's would not affect the wash process as drastically as you indicate.If the dishwasher is not filling properly, or if the detergent or rinse agent is "foaming" during the cycle, you will loose the pressure from the pump system and the top rack dishes will appear to not clean properly. Here's a quick easy check, start the dishwasher in any wash cycle, allow the unit to fill and wash for 3 to 5 minutes, unlatch the door,wait a few seconds, remove the lower rack. The water level in the bottom of the tub should cover the lower half of the heater element(at least) and the water temperature should be 120 dgrs.F. Allow the dishwasher to run a few more minutes and check for suds, a white "film" on top of the water. Let us know what you find, uncover and we can go from there. Thanks
Appliance Pro: The water level in the bottom of the tub does cover half of the heater element. The water temperature is 125. After I let the washer run a few more minutes, there were suds on top of the water. I did the test a second time and there were suds. So, which part(s) do I need to replace?
ANSWER Hello David. If there were suds present, you will need to run some dishwasher magic TJ104 through the dishwasher to remove all the soap build up inside the unit and clean all the internal parts. This should repair the issue.
