Hi Problems with the dish racks usually occur because the racks have been jammed back into the tub housing after they're fully loaded. Careless handling can exert enough force to crack or break the roller wheels or throw the racks off the tracks. The solution is easy: Stop jamming the racks. 
The repair is easy, too. Remove the racks by pulling out the tiny metal pins that hold them in the tracks. Or simply lift up on the racks and pull them out of the tracks. Then reinstall the racks on the tracks so that they roll smoothly. If the rollers are cracked or broken, replace them with new ones of the same type. The rollers may be friction-fit to their hubs. Pull them off for replacement. Or, if they are held by tiny spring clips, pull the clips out with pliers, or pry them out with the tip of a screwdriver. If you can't pull the rollers off for replacement, remove and replace the entire rack.

My dishwasher doesn't clean the all the dishes, esp on top rack


Check the jet holes on the sprayer arms. The outside holes usually plug first from calcification and centrifugal force causing only the center areas to clean. Remove these arms and shake out all of the "little white rocks" and then run the machine empty with a de-calcifying cleaner.

Only bottom rack cleans. Re-plumb or replace?


Do you have a garbage disposal? If I run mine while the dishwasher is running, dishes do NOT get clean!

GE Quiet Wash 3, top arm does not spin


It sounds like you don't have enough water. Your water inlet valve may be not letting in enough water or the plastic pump inlet screen located on the bottom of your dishwasher had something blocking it.
  1. Check to see if there is something blocking the plastic screen on the bottom of your dishwasher.
  2. When your dishwasher is in the final cycle add a pot of hot water to the dishwasher and see if your dishes come out cleaner.
If the dishes come out cleaner you may need a new water inlet valve.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

Top rack washer arm isn't spinning and therefore not cleaning dishes in top rack, bottom works fine


You can replace the whole top assembly. And before you run the cycles again, try putting a cup of Tang (dry) orange juice through the cycle without any dishes or get some Dishwasher Magic and you'll have a sparkling new dishwasher once again! hope this helps you!

LG dishwasher wont clean top rack dishes


Recommend you remove the approximately 10 screws to pull the entire filter and manually clean. Remove all debris you find and thoroughly rinse out the filter if you can separate the top from the bottom. If the sump area is greasy, use a de-greasing spray to cut through it. Resemble, checking that there are no blockages in the holes on the spray arms.
Fill a bowl or cup with white vinegar and place it on the lower rack of the empty dishwasher. Do not add detergent. Run the quick cycle. The inside of the dishwasher should now be clean and not greasy. If still greasy, use the de-greasing spray (avaiable at all stores in the cleaning section.)
For 30 days, use only Electrosol or Cascade powder. Do NOT use gel or tablets, ever. Please report back your results. Good Luck!
ianc435 , please ask your question in as a new problem and I will help you out. I understand your problem.

LG dishwasher wont clean top rack dishes


If the unit is cleaning the bottom dishes normally, try unplugging the unit for 5 minutes to reset the control board.  If that doesn't work, then the control board needs to be replaced.  The problem is that control board is not diverting the water to the upper wash arm during the cycle.  Possibly a program problem
