Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665 13843 -
Mydishes 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. The soap door opens but there is still soap in it.

brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.

There is a rubber tube which supplies water to the top spray arms. That is, If yours has top spray arms. This rubber tube has to make a connection when one slides the top rack back in. That tube will rot after a while, check it out.
If the soap is not being used up, reduce the amount of soap you are using and run the dishwasher empty with a pie plate sitting on the bottom rack with a cup of distilled (cheap) vinegar in it. Run it hot and long, recheck and redo if neccessary.

Internal filtersEvery dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:
Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.
There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.
If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.
Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.
If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.
Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful.
CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the repair.

the only way you can tell if the upper rack is not getting enough water is to turn a glass right side up in each corner. then run for 2 minutes and see if there is water in each cup.
if you still dont get water, then you have checked the pump, the only thing left is that you are not getting enough water into the unit.
start the d/w at a normal cycle, let it fill and go into the wash cycle, takes about 3 minutes, then check to see if the water level is just below the heating element. if so then it has to be the wash pump being plugged.
if not enough water then you should change the water inlet valve. some times they do get plugged but also make sure you are getting full water pressure to the unit as that could cause not enough water into unit. the faucet under sink could be at fault i have seen valve work but not let enough water in, so dont be surprised if you need a new valve.
