Hello; this dishwasher has a pretty poor track record, but since you have it, I'd suggest the obvious solutions first. You only mention that the spray arms aren't spinning. If this is the ONLY problem, and the dishwasher empties properly, the problem has to lie in the spray arms, since the same pump that runs the sprays pumps the water out of the dishwasher.
If you have the manual for the machine, remove the sprays and check that they are clear of all debris (small pieces of bone, plastic, glass, food) that are usually removed when you rinse the dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher. These small particles are blown into the spray holes when the sprays try to run, and block the holes. Often, they drop back into the spray arms when the pump is off, so they aren't visible on inspection. For this reason, smack the spray arm into the palm of your hand sharply, then shake the arm. If you hear rattling around inside the arm, it's debris. It's a little time consuming, but you need to get it out, and check for this problem regularly.
While the arms are off the fittings, close the dishwasher and start the cycle. Once it reaches the point where the sprays come on, if the pump IS working, and the debris screen on the food chopper is clear, you should hear the water gushing inside.
If you DON'T hear the water gushing, the next thing to check is the food chopper debris screen.
If all else fails, and the washer does NOT empty at the end of the cycles, you probably have a pump problem.
If that's the case, considering the history of these machines and the cost and labor involved in installing a new pump, you should consider getting a new, more reliable machine. Check Consumer Reports next time. (;<)....Good Luck!

The particular model number is not listed in the list of
manuals of omega washing machine.Please call the customer support for
assistance.However given bellow are some settings of the washing machine,which
is extracted from a website.Hope it helps:-
7 is warm wash delicates (warm cycles then it runs through
the number 10 delicate cold cycle too)
10 is cold wash delicates
1 is the longest regular cycle
I normally wash with only the cold tap on, 3 for dirty washes, 4 for regular washes.
Soap goes in the middle slot
3 Buttons from left to right
left - in to spray rinse
middle - in to NOT spin dry
right - in for NOT boost heat (or maybe it has no booster and it is just in for cold wash - not sure)
when standing in front of it, reaching over the back, the left connector is cold and the right connector is for hot water.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please
accept the suggestion.
