Penrod, sounds like a circulation problem. Two things to check first. make sure the upper spray arm is not clogged with debris or split. Second is to twist and remove the filter and clear out any debris where the water enters the circulation pump impeller. If something has jammed the impeller, you would have to remove the dishwasher, remove the tank, remove the circulation motor and clean out the impeller...Catriver...post back.

sewnice, you might have to dig a little deeper to correct the problem. As long as you can spin the spray arm with your hand and it's not split it should be ok. Your chopper screen might be plugged. You will have to remove the lower spray arm and filter cover. These are torq screws. The accumulator assy. turns to the right to unlock and will lift off. It will take some pressue to snap it off the rear fill tube. Now you will be looking down at the cover that protects the chopper and screen. There is one torq screw holding it down. Remove the screw and lift it off. See if the screen is clogged. If it is, it will prevent the pump from sending water to the upper spray arm in force. Catriver..post back

You could try running it with the upper arm removed, just so you could be sure that the pressure is not getting to that point - unless you are absolutely sure the upper arm holes/channels are all clear then descale it overnight with some vinegar - just might clear something. if there is obviously only a little flow of water then perhaps you could try getting vinegar into the supply pipe using a basting bulb/syringe or similar - again leave overnight and you may get lucky. The next thing would be to take the machine apart so you could follow this hose through to the pump - undo it from the pump and blow through it or see if you can get a piece of wire in it from the pump end. try vinegar again. check the pump outlet for blockage. Hope this helps :)

have you seen whether water is pouring out of the bottom supply tube with the lower arm removed? not 100% sure on this model but some units have a half load switch but that should turn off the top one. there may be a blockage in the lower water supply tubeways.
