It could be that the machine isn't filling properly with water- which could be a faulty or clogged water inlet valve. I'm not quite familiar with Inglis, but if you still have the manual, check and see if there is a way to adjust the amount of time the water valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle.

Or just add a liter or so of water at the beginning of a cycle and see if that helps- but make sure you add it after you hear the soap dispenser open- the beginning of most wash cycles is a quick rinse cycle, so any water you add will only be in there for a couple minutes before the machine drains and attempts to refill.

First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)

Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then the motor is failing and too weak to drive the spray arms.
To answer your question, I think the answer is "They don't make them like they used too!"

I know this isnt the same model, they dont carry your manual as of yet. But it does have some suggestions to look at on page 17. I had the same problem and I looked really carefully and found my sprayer arm was blocked. I cleaned it out and havent had a problem with it again. I do check it regular now.

SOURCE: Only some cups on top rack are getting cleaned

It sounds as if you have some rollers missing on the bottom rack which lets the rack sit on the sprayer therefore not letting it spin. You should have 4 rollers on front and 2 on back of rack. If you are missing two on one side, take one from the other side until you can get some more. Just make sure you have a roller on all four sides of the rack

Water still in machine


Check for restrictions in the motor, Pull the drawer all the way out, fold the side racks out of the way and lift the wire basket out of the tub.
Lift the wash arm off
Then twist the plastic ring and the lower metal plate will lift out.
Grab the motor and twist anti-clockwise and pull up to remove, Check for anything stuck under there and look for any damage to the plastic on the tub or impeller.
If the impeller is damaged you can either put up with it as it is or replace the impeller.
e-assembly is just a matter of doing it all but backwards.

TOP RACK NOT CLEANING DISHES


Possible that the motor impeller has good particles in it, causing poor water pressure, which would be most evident on the top rack. You would have to remove the spray arm, then the filter, then the torx screws to get at impeller....unfortunately, that model of dishwasher isn't the greatest in the first place for washing, since it only has the one spray arm.

Top rack dishes not getting clean


When the dishes on the top rack are not getting clean the most common problem is that the water supply hose in the rear of the top rack is misaligned. With the rack empty, pull out the rack and look in the rear where the supply hose slides into the water supply. Often a plastic clip or two has come apart. Realign everything and it will work fine. If you need a diagram go to sears direct parts where they have an excellent website. Enter your model number and you will be able to see a schematic showing each part and how they go together. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful. thank you.

My dishwasher is leaving a lot of residue on dishes


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

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.
