Question about Whirlpool GU1200XTLS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
The water is coming up through the bottom spray arm but is not spraying hard enough to clean the dishes.The spray arm moves very slow with the water shooting up about 3 inches. The water is not pumping hard enough to make it up to the second and third spray arm. Tube leading to the upper spray arms is clear. The water inlet valve has been replaced and the motor seems to spin freely. All has been cleaned so there is no debris.
I'd only like to add that be very observant when removing the chopper and screen. The larger circle (look at cutouts on screen) goes on the top, it cn be very hard to get the chopper blade flex drive positioned correctly (very bad results will occur if not properly installed) and be patient and gentle when reinstalling the chopper cover to get everything correctly aligned. When everything is in the right place the chopper cover will rotate (counter clockwise) easily back into place.

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.
Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.
Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.
