Is anything preventing the arms from rotating once you've stacked it? I find tall plates need to go at either side in our dishwasher or the arms hit them and don't go round.

Also, if I put a lot in the top tray (I'm talking about wedging things around other stuff really) then the water circulation isn't very good and a film of much accumulates in places and the mugs, glasses, etc need cleaning by hand to remove it.

Have you checked all the holes in the arms are clear. Tiny bits of food get lodged in them. Even one blocked hole dramatically reduces cleaning.

Is the stuff packed in too tightly? usually this is the reason mine doesn't always clean properly.
I think using salt and rinse aid helps too.

We have just had this problem. I cleaned everything as you have ut I also did an intensive wash using white vinigar. I also am putting less items on the top shelf. Dishes now coming out clean.
