Question about Danby 22 in. DDW399 Free-standing Dishwasher
Everything works fine. Everything except there is not pressure to drive the swing arm during the wash cycle. Repeat- everything else works fine. It fills. The domestic water pressure is fine. The timer runs correctly. The pump extracts the wash water. The rinse cycle comes on no swing arm movement due to no wash pump pressure. It drains properly.
I had a problem like this once, it turns out I had a potato peel that was pressing up against the hole underneath the mesh filter. Basically when the unit was off, the peel would sink to the bottom of the reservoir, but once the water started going, the peel would plug up the pump inlet.
Make sure this isn't the case by inspecting underneath the mesh trap.

Check first that no debris is blocking the holes in the spray arm where the water comes out, and clean out the holes. In case it will not solve your problem, it's look like a pump problem (the pump has two functions : drive water to the spray arms and to drain water out the washer). Open the rear panel and listen if the pump works during the wash cycle. In case it doesn't work, it should be replaced. Good luck !
