I've got a kitchenaid Dishwasher...Model KUDK01ITBLO. The top rack isn't getting clean at all. The bottom rack is washing just fine. Is there a seperate pump that runs preasure to the top rack? What should I be looking for to fix?
Type of Appliance: Dishwasher
All I've figured out is that the bottom rack is cleaning just fine. However the top rack isn't cleaning at all. I'm thinking the water preasure that isn't reaching the top rack.

Is it better if I order a new chopper or is there a good chance the that it is just clogged? Is kitchenaid parts made by whirlpool?
I would probably inspect it first because you may find only the filter before the chopper is plugged. If the chopper itself is plugged, replace it. Whirlpool makes Kitchen Aid, it is their high end line. The motor pump assembly is the same, though.
