Question about Hobart Dishwashers
Some people say you must face the dishes forwards, but others say they can be placed facing sideways in the tray. We found that facing the plates sideways lets us spray both the front and back of the plates easier than if the plates were facing forwards.
If is a door machine, it doesn't matter. If is a conveyor Machine face the dishes on the direction of advance.

The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!

When the spray arm does not spin and even the powder does get mixed in, your probably have a failing pump/motor.
Before you call for service, try the following. Remove the lower spray arm and filter beneath the spray arm (and as always, check for plugged spray holes and for any broken parts.) Screws will need to be removed to to this.
Rinse everything in the filter, removing anything that does not belong.
With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area, looking for anything that may be blocking water flow. Watch out for broken glass down there!
Look closely at the impeller, looking for damage and that it spins freely and is securely attached.
While you are looking down there, inspect the heating element for damage/being broken/bumpy when it should be smooth.
Reassemble and run a load of those gathering dirty dishes!
The detergent ~should~ dissolve and clean effectively. BUT, if you have recently bought a cheaper, generic dishwasher powder, buy yourself a name brand powder like Electrosol or Cascade and only use it. The cheaper stuff is junk and will rarely clean even in perfectly operating DWs.
If all this does not work, then the pump motor most often the problem and needs to be replaced. When it is being worked on, make sure the heating element is checked. If I were replacing the pump motor, I would also replace heating element at the same time.

These parts can be replaced easily and reasosnably cheaply for example the top spray arm is about £20.00p. But you need the back water feed tube as well as the lower spray arm which should come as one package. (depending on model i'm going by bosch). You shouldn't have to pay more than £30.00p + p&p. Hope this helps.
