Top rack in Kenmore ultrawash not being cleaned

I have a kenmore ultrawash and suddenly the top rack is not being washed anymore. I tried raising it and lowering it since it has two settings but glasses and plates are not being cleaned when put in the top rack while those in the bottom rack are pretty clean. What can I do?

Check to make sure the upper wash arm is not plugged with debris. All Plates on the bottom rack and bowls on the top. Position the arm at 12 o'clock and check at the end of the cycle to see if it has moved positions.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, purchased in 2000, it is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack, just happened all the sudden.


You should check to make sure that the lower sprayer is extending to spray the bottom of the top rack and that water is being pumped up to the top sprayer. You will need to take the dishwaher out of the cabinet to test.

My dishes on the top rack are no longer getting clean. I don't think any water is going to the top. The dishes on the bottom get clean but have a soap residue on them.

Spray tower fell off


The Spray tower fits in the bottom rack, Its actually pretty obvious as there is no way it can sit int he position it has to without being in the rack itself otherwise the rack and tower would block each other all the time. 
 Examine the base of your spray tower it should have two "clips" or plastic protusions that will, with a circular twist, snap onto the bars of the middle of the rack itself. Then when in place and your rack is slid inside the dishwasher the tower should sit directly over top of the exact middle of your bottom spray arm. 
et Voila.
