Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers
Washes from the bottom only. Water is not making it to the top jets. Jets are not plugged
Typically there is a rubber boot that "joins" up to a water pipe in the rear of the unit when you slide the top rack back into the washer. IS the boot missing or misaligned perhaps?

More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.

What is the model of this KitchenAid diswasher and approximatly how old is it? On some newer, energy saving models water is alternated from lower to upper spray arms. But ...
Remove filter that is in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack. Screws will need to be removed to open the area up. Look for blockages and clean filter.
Reassemble and test. If problems remain, it is probably a failing pump motor and will require a service call.

There may be something plugging up the arm that sprays over the dishes. And of course, I'm sure you know not to place items like bowls, pots, etc that will block the flow of water from the bottom sprays.
Although the bottom jets do most of the working cleaning the top items, the spray from above is vital. Take the stem pipe leadin from the top to the bottom off and separate the spray arms carefully. If you can, look throgh each end to make sure no deposits are in there.
Another way is to blow compressed air from the center stem down in the water supply unit. If food particles are there you'll see them.

If you have the patience and time, you can use a toothpick to unclog all those little holes.
Most likely the clogging is a result of a combination of slightly hard water and food particles, etc.
I've found that you can use some readily available dishwasher cleaning solutions to help clean it out. You run an empty machine through a complete cycle with the solution (available at most big box and appliance stores, etc.) and it will help disolve the gunk in the sprayer arms, as well as help remove any stains on the top, sides, and bottom of the tub.
I've also used white vinegar added to the wash cycle, once the DW is full of water (I add in 2 cups of white vinegar to the wash water) without any dishwashing detergent, and is seems to helps disolve any deposits in places I can't get to by hand
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
