Question about Danby 22 in. DDW396 Free-standing Dishwasher
I have a Danby DDW399W countertop dishwasher that until a few weeks ago was working perfectly. It now only partially drains and and spray arm doesn't spin at all. Originally after reading some stuff on this site I have cleaned it with dishwasher cleaner twice and also with vinegar, now atleast the water comes out of the spray arm, but sadly it doesn't spin at all. It only partially drains. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I miss my dishwasher as I hate dishes. Also, at some point when it stopped washing the dishes it started to make a strange noise that has decreased with the cleanings but hasn't gone away. I also had switched to an environmentally friendly dishwasher cleaner that kept coating the dishwasher with goo which I suspect could be the culprit.

Tips for a great answer:
have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
