Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable shutting off the power to the dishwasher, do so.

SOURCE: dishes not washing clean
check water level in machine
may be not filling enough and the wash pump is starved from water thus not pushing water to upper arm
drain water from machine dismantle and clean out air tube to pressure switch take off air tube at pressure switch and blow back into sump then pinch air tube with fingers to stop air from flowing back up tube then refit to p/s
run and see if that solves problem

Is it filling with enough water. Look or if you don't know how much water is supposed to be there , Just add a gallon of hot water to the machine after it fills. If this solves the problem check the filter in the fill valve or replace the valve.

You'll need to clean the food chopper in the base. Make sure you've got a torx screwdriver.
