But not dry
This could mean that the heater OR it's hi-limit thermostat OR the control board are shot.

the top row doesn't get totally clean and has residue
Anyone know what's up?

Could be a number of things:
1. Water temperature too cold. Check the heater and hi-limit with a meter.
2. Not enough water entering the machine, most units fill to just under the heating element.
3. Dirty food filters impeding the water flow. Clean the filters.
4. Something in the pump is shot.

I am experiencing a similar problem with a Quiet Series 300. At the end of the wash cycle, the glassware (top shelf) has granular deposits caked inside, mostly at the bottom of the glasses. I have tried cleaning the machine--clearing the filter and water-jet apertures on the washer arms and adding rinse-aid to the washer prior to each use, but I still have to scrape/rinse items when I am unloading it. It is mighty frustrating, and I would love to hear if there is solution to this problem, short of replacing the dishwasher.
