Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16152 Built-in Dishwasher
Kenmore dishwasher 587-16152400 The spinner-rinse mechanisim for the upper rack does not spin or rinse or fill with water. It appears that there should be some sort of funnel that would allow the water to route from the top of the dishwasher into this spinning device - or maybe it works in a different way? No water seems to make it into the round plastic shaft that is in the middle of the upper rack, so therefore no water goes into the spinner and it fails to spin and therefore dishes in the upper rack do not get washed
When a dishwasher acts like this, the most common problem is a blockage in the sump area, underneath the lower spray arm. Removing any/all filter and covers down there (screws will need to be removed) and inspecting with a flashlight, remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!) Also, inspect the "impeller" that is turned by the wash motor for damage or being loose while you are down there. Reassemble and test out.
If problems remain, the next most common problem is a failed wash motor. It is common over the years for it to weaken as it heads towards total failure. These motors, when they fail, can not be repaired, rather they must be replaced.
Please post back with what you find, OK?
