My maytag jet clean is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack. I've removed and cleaned the rotating top arm, as well as the bottom ones.
I am at a loss as to what else could be wrong. Does anyone have some ideas for me to try.

Re: Maytag jet clean
If the arm has a crack or is broke pressure will not turn it properly. Also check the rubber boot that seal the wash arm on the rear supply tube. If the rear supply tube holes are not sealing from inside with the rubber flap seal that will effect it also.

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.
your top spray arm is blocked and not rotating,remove it from top basket and thoroughly clean it paying particular attention to the holes right at the ends these are angled to drive the arms round if they block up the arms will not rotate.
Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.
The problem is likely that the cutter/chopper filter is plugged. This reduces or eliminates water flow to the cleaning arms. Solution: Remove dish baskets Remove bottom arm - Rotate the centre post until arm is free to be lifted out. Remove conduit to top arm(s) - Remove 2 screws, one at top and one at back. Rotate whole conduit 45 deg right and lift off of centre post. Remove bottom plastic assembly. - Remove 4 screws and lift off. Remove cutter cap. - Remove 1 screw at front left. Lift off plastic cap. Remove cutter filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull cutter blade foreword and lift filter disc straight up. Clean filter disc thoroughly Reassemble!
the spinning of the arms is created by the force of the water shooting out of the holes. your top arm may have debris build up in it that prevents proper water flow. u can also remove the arm and see it there is build up on the contact point were it rotates. clean it if its dirty. "dishwasher magic" is good for cleaning mineral build up in your system. also, make sure your not putting dishes on the top rack that are too tall and prevent the blade from rotating
