Question about Dishwashers
After 3 months and 8 visits from Sears to repair our 1.5 yr old dishwasher, they finally called it a lemon. The problem was that the spray arm under the top rack would not spin. Many parts replaced, but still did not work. So, yesterday, they came and installed our BRAND NEW top of the line Kenmore dishwasher and guess what? top rack dishes not clean and spray arm under the top rack NOT SPINNING! Our water was evaluated, no problem, our water pressure and fill speed, great. Please let me know if you've ever seen this before and any possible solutions??? This is driving me crazy. I'm wondering if it could be a "level" thing? Could it somehow not be level and that's affecting this spray arm and only this one? Thanks for any advice.
Unlikely that 2 dishwashers would have the same fault but is of course possible
could it be to do with how you are loading? quite common is for a knife or similiar to stick down thro the rack and jam the arm

I 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 will help you with the online buying...
