I have the GE Adora Quiet Power and we've been having a problem with sliding the top rack in. We purchased a new basket thinking it was bent, but did not fix the problem. It stops dead when pushing it in. We cannot figure out the problem.

Make sure you are installing that silverware holder properly. The little tabs of the silverware holder are supposd to go over and around the mating bars of the upper rack. Barring that, your upper rack may be pulled (bent) out, and you may have to push it (hard) to get it back in shape.
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.
Check to see if there is something blocking the plastic screen on the bottom of your dishwasher.
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.
I have a GE Profile model PDW7800.... and just replaced the rollers on one side since one of them had broken. There is a 'magical' way to reinstall the rack so the side guides ride inside the roller guides without touching. I suspect that the rack has not been reinstalled in the precise manner - which I am still trying to figure out. The new roller assembly which attach to the rack fit differently than the original ones. I found that you do have to remove the rollers screwed into the wall to get the glides out and that could also cause rough gliding. Part of the 'binding' is designed, I believe, to keep the racks from coming out too easily.
Most dishwashers have a little filter basket in the bottom. Depending on the brand, you can slide out the bottom rack, and in the bottom underneath the sprayer (the propeller thing) there should be some sort of basket that can be removed and cleaned. You also may have some water quality issues, or some detergents will leave residue. Also, make sure most of the large food is removed before loading.
This one is a known issue and an easy fix.
Use a tie wrap to securely tie the water tube for the middle spray to the upper basket. That's it. Believe it or not, it's that simple. You may want to secure it at the front and the back. To test this you can use the tie wraps used to closed the plastic grocery or bread bags. If this solves the problem you can buy a bag of nylon tie wraps from any hardware store.
I had a similar problem with another GE model with a similar problem. The dishwahser used to make a horrible grinding noise during the wash cycle. One I secured the middle sprayer arm the grinding noise went away.
