Poor water pressure due to a clogged flowplate assy if the flowplate assy is not clogged with gook and hard water then you may need a new motor, a weak motor may not push the water well enough to get up to the top
first check entire flow are impeller etc

Why is the upper sray arm is not working in kitchenaid model KUDR01TJ


There are 2 spray arms for the top rack. A small one on the dishwasher top and a bigger one attached to the bottom of the upper rack. Both get water feed from a flat tube that runs up the back wall of the dishwasher. Not much to the very top little arm--just check the spray holes for any food blockage and try to clean with a brush or tooth pick. The bigger arm on the bottom of the top rack gets its water feed through a hole about half way up the flat tube on the back wall. When you push the rack all the way in, it has to plug itself into that hole in the back wall. Check that plug in area and make sure nothing broke off that would keep it from making a good seal with the rack all the way in. All check all the holes in the spray arm for food blockages. On the very end of all spray arms is a main hole that is the drive hole to spin the spray arm. The water shoots out that hole and acts like a jet engine to push the arm around. Make sure those holes are clear.

Top sray arm is not moving on my bosch Model #: SHE43P05UC dishwasher


Hello,
Either the delivery pipe to the top spray arm is blocked or end of arm is split or the spray arm holes are blocked.Check for physical obstructions around the arm.I take it that the bottom arm is ok.The other problem could be a fault at the main wash pump.

Hope this helps.

7-8 year old KitchenAid washes dishes on bottom, but not on top


Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.

Top rack not cleaning properly, not sure if top spay arm is working ?


Ensure that the spray arm is movable. Inspect the spray holes in the top spray arm. If clogged, clean the openings. If no clog, position the spray arm in a certain position (e.g.: arms facing front and back). Then activate the dishwasher for a minute or so and open the door to determine if the spray arm has moved. If not, there may be an issue with the water feeding to the spray arm (typically via the water pump, etc.).

Upper sray arm does not turn


Take the bottom spray arm off and take out the screen etc. When these are removed it will expose the volute cover. The volute cover is what the lower spray arm attaches to, there will be a few screws that hold it on, when the screws are removed it will lift off. Under it you will find a check ball, it should move freely, it is most likely stuck in place, if it is free it and clean it and the track it rolls in. re-assemble and it should work. hope this helps
