The top rack cycle depends on water getting to the top wash arm.
Usually problems can occur if this or the water tubes feeding it are not clean. It will help look at the problem in more detail if you provide the full model number in the comments field.

How do I remove the top rack?


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

Based off what your have described you need assistance in removing the top rack off your Electrolux dishwasher. In order to remove the top rack you would need to remove the caps from your rail and you should be able to pull it up and out. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Top rack not getting clean on Normal Cycle


Empty the dishwasher. Look at the 2 rotating plastic arms in it (like 2 bladed windmills) spin each one, do they move freely without hitting anything? If so remove the top one (its a press on fit) the look inside it with a torch, is there any debris or dirt inside it blocking it? Water has to flow inside it or it will not spin, and top rack gets no water spray.

Top (upper rack) of dishwasher does not wash. bottom does mediocre job


Make sure top rack is backed up into water entry in back of diswasher. Also check to make sure holes are not plugged in rotating wash arm. You may have to wash your dishwasher..take out the racks and look to see if they have food gunked up on them, if so wash them off in the sink. Take out the top rack clips and wash the rails inside the tub if they are dirty. You can use a squirt bottle with warm water. Do this after you run a rinse cycle so that dried food gunk is softer. There are alot of places in this machine for food to stick then resurface later. you may try also adding vinegar and baking soda to a rinse cycle and then leaving in it soak before restarting it.

Does not remove all food some residue remains after wash cycle


check and make sure that you are getting water too the top rack place a cup or mug upright in the top rack turn the dishywasher on for about 2 minutes you should a least have filled the cup up half way if not to the top. if you are not getting water to the top rack check to make sure that you have enough water in the unit. also before starting the wash you want to point the wash arm in the same direction to make sure that they are turning. Do they turn? when you are finished with a cycle do you see steam or is it cold inside. let me know what you find.

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!

Top rack in Kenmore ultrawash not being cleaned


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.

Only some cups on top rack are getting cleaned


It sounds as if you have some rollers missing on the bottom rack which lets the rack sit on the sprayer therefore not letting it spin. You should have 4 rollers on front and 2 on back of rack. If you are missing two on one side, take one from the other side until you can get some more. Just make sure you have a roller on all four sides of the rack
