If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.
Good Luck!

Remove the dishwasher from the cabinet and look at the hose going up to the top. Make sure it isn't clogged and that there is nothing in the port where it comes out of the pump. The top arm is powered by water pressure from the pump.

Check the free rotation of the spray arm. If arm jets are clogged clean them.

After placing the dishes see to it that, the arm is freely rotating without any obstacles.

LG LDS5811 top rack not cleaning


I Have the same issue, it sounds like the arms try and start up 4 times then each time power back down, the top arm is not spinning at all. On the fifth time a I hear grinding and then the mid and lower arms spin, soap streaks down the door, nothing stuck in any of the arms, 16 months old, 750.00 out of pocket for junk!

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Top arm doesn't spin


It is important to know that the upscale LG diswashers alternate between washing the top and bottom rack. So it is normal for some arm to not be turning at certain times.
Also, if this dishwasher is set to half load, bottom only, the top arm will never turn.

Arms are not spinning


If the spray arms arent clogged up then you have a clogged filter.

Bottom wash arm


there is a blockage but may not be obvious. arm turns only by water spraying out of the angled jets at the end of the arm. take arm off, run water thro the centre hole and this is udually enough to force the debris to the jets. clean out and check

Cyber, did you get down to the chopper screen? If that is clogged with gunk it will restrict the flow and the top arm will not spin. Im going to try to attach a pic of the chopper assy and screen. Catriver..post back
