Question about Dishwashers
Dishwasher fills with water and empties, but no water sprays out during cycle, the detergent tab was untouched and still hanging in the soap dispenser. It makes noise like it is washing, but when I open no water is moving around
Does the timer advance the control knob? check to see that nothing is in the way of the center spray tower. does it sound like any water is spraying around inside?

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
