Top roller screw hole stripped

1)make certain all is clean and very dry
2)apply gorilla glue into stripped plastic hole and insert screw.
3)rig something up to keep it from moving for 6 hours or so

careful gorilla has a nasty habbit of pretty much destroying clothes and staining skin so be carefull. don't get carried away when applying it and maybe set down a disposable rag to catch drips.
but it is very permanent. Its what I would do

good luck

Upper rack track wheel broke

You can try to obtain the part from KitchenAid or an appliance parts supplier. However, you may only be able to get the complete assembly.

Whirlpool du1055xtsq 3 not cleaning top rack of

In my experience, you probably have a clog in the spray arm/arms for the top rack. Take the arm(s) out and see if the holes in them are clogged. Rice, plastic wrappers, and glass from dishes that broke in there are the most common culprits I've seen.

Top rack will not pull out all the way

Replace the upper basket wheels - these are available as spares. If the metal runners look angled - it may be the wheels on the side of the dishwasher that need replacing. These are also available as a spare part.
Ebay is actually a good place to shop for spares of this type.

Kitchen Aid SS Dishwasher KUD102CRBS1 - Top Rack has 3 rusty spot

Looks like you can get the upper rack for about half that, direct from Sears-
Dishwasher Dishrack Upper Part Number 8539234 Sears PartsDirect
Still kinda pricey if you only have a few bad spots.

There is special touchup coating (never tried it myself, but looks like it gets good reviews, and the price is right)

Or prong covers if you just have rust or damage on the tips (I've used ones like these, the long ones stay on good)

Top rack dishes are not clean

My Whirlpool dishwasher is only 2 years old and I started having the same problems. I dismantled everything I could and washed and scrubbed the entire unit with no avail, dirty dishes!! But I discovered a remedy! Try using Lemi-Shine for about a week with your regular wash-soap. If you are using the tablet form of soap, stop and try the powdered form. Follow the instructions on the Lemi-Shine container. You can find it just about anywhere for around $3.50. I was within "5 seconds" of replacing my 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher when this caught my eye and I figured why not try it too? After the first wash I noticed a big difference the cleanliness of the dishes..and now it is running GREAT after 2 weeks!
