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.

The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:
1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.
2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.
3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.
4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.
THese things should make a huge difference.
Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe

SOURCE: Water not draining and not clean
When dirty water is left in the dishwasher the pump assembly is a primary cause. To assure that the dishwasher gets fully repaired and you are going to do the work yourself, I would order and install this part:
Also, check that the heating element is working. Many people replace the heating element whenever they replace the pump/ motor.
