Either one of a few reasons. Remove the top rotor and clean each sets of holes on both sides thoroughly. This is the main reasons why. Next is a little more complex. Often, depending on what make of dishwasher you have, they have an electronic selection of weather you want the top rotor to work; or the bottom one or both. Just done an LG with that exact problem. The actuator(selector) went faulty. To sort that else you would need help if that was the solution.

If there afilter on the inlet hose it might need clening,if you have a partial blockage it will reduce the volume of water entering your appliance.Hope this helps.

DISHES ON TOP RACK ARE NOT GETTING CLEAN TOP SPINNER NOT SPINNING POSSIBLY NOT ENOUGH WATER PRESSURE?


It would help if you provided the make and model of the dishwasher.
Most likely cause of not getting enough water pressure to top rack is the water diverter may be faulty.

Depending on the model - it is a small ball floating in a vertical channel which alternately opens and closes the bottom and top water inlets to the spray arms. Check part at Repair Clinic after selecting make & model of your dishwasher.

The spinner below the top rack is not spinning. Any ideas?


if there is no enough pressure in the water arm dont spin so we should check the inlet filter clean it and also check the valves in the main waterline.

Whirlpool dishwasher top spinner and top rack spinner is not putting out water or very little and not spinning. I have taken apart and cleaned everything including the sump / chopper, can't find any...


First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)

Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then the motor is failing and too weak to drive the spray arms.
To answer your question, I think the answer is "They don't make them like they used too!"

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Top rack not cleaning, possibly spinner not spinning?


Try twirling the spinner by hand to see if it is binding. If it looks ok then there could be something plugging the water passage to the spinner. If you have access to a water hose you could run water into that verticle passage pipe and see if there is an obstruction. If so it can be taken apart for cleaning.

Upper rack spinning device fails to aquire water and does not spin


Jeff, When a dishwasher acts like this, the most common problem is a blockage in the sump area, underneath the lower spray arm. Removing any/all filter and covers down there (screws will need to be removed) and inspecting with a flashlight, remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!)  Also, inspect the "impeller" that is turned by the wash motor for damage or being loose while you are down there.  Reassemble and test out.
If problems remain, the next most common problem is a failed wash motor.  It is common over the years for it to weaken as it heads towards total failure.  These motors, when they fail, can not be repaired, rather they must be replaced.
Please post back with what you find, OK?
