Question about Candy 24 in. CD622 Free-standing Dishwasher
The spray arm on the upper basket does not spin, water does come through the holes, but only the crockery directly above the arm is being washed. the arm is not stuck or caught on anything as it turns easily when touched. there is nothing blocking the water flow.please help
Before you do anything else, just check that you haven't put the upper spray arm on upside down. Having made the mistake myself, I can vouch for how easy it is to get wrong on some models. I think this is one of those machines where the upper spray arm rides between a couple of teflon washers which act both as seals and as bearings. These wear out eventually, with two effects. One is that you lose pressure at the holes in the spray arm which are supposed to drive the arm round, and the other is increased resistance to turning. Have a look at the condition of the washers; if in doubt, replace them. I don't think this is one of those dishwashers where the upper arm is fed through a telescoping pipe running from the upper basket to a nozzle in the cabinet roof - but in case the system has filed this problem against the wrong model number, I'll just mention that these telescoping arrangements need to be kept clean, otherwise the pipe won't close up to and seal against the nozzle, and again you'll lose pressure. If you've got one, check it moves freely. A. A.

The spray arm is moved by water spraying out of angled jets at the end of the arm. the mostly cause of no rotation is these jets being blocked - its not always obvious. remove spray arm and run water into centre hole and see if you can see anything blocking the jets
