Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
Hello loria... When the top rack no longer cleans like it should check the flexible hose in the rear of that tray for holes. It may even be disconnected, or not lining up with the water supply connection in the rear of the dishwasher.
Check these things, repair or replace as necessary and you will have clean glassware once again. Joe
Thanks for choosing Fixya!

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.

The problem in the top drawer could be due to a few reasons.
Have you cleaned the wash arm and does it sit in alignment with the hole from which the water comes in.
Try to increase the quantity of detergent and rinse aid to see if there is any difference to the cleaning of the glasses.
You can check if water is getting to the top rack by leaving a container in it to measure the quantity of water at end of wash cycle. The gritty substance is usually the sand in the detergent. It is left behind because there may not be adequate water reaching the top rack.
Once in a few months you should use a Finish Dishwasher cleaning kit and run the empty dishwasher with it according to the instructions on the kit.
Hope this will help solve the problem.
