The sprayers are not powered but rely on the water pressure to spin them. If it's not spinning it could be
the spinner isn't engaging in the top rack as you slide it in
blocked jets on the spray arm
blocked feedpipe to the spray arm
faulty pump

Most dishwashers are fairly easy to dismantle to check the first few

How do I get the top sprayer arm to spin? I have cleaned and checked for clogs.


Hi

As you have already cleaned and checked the arm for any clogs then please make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low. The top arm spins freely. If not then check the bearings for the arm. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The top two water water arms do not spin


These spray arm will only get water several times in the wash and rinse cycle. They do not turn at the same time the lower (bottom large spray arm under the bottom rack).
There is a chamber that diverts water either to the bottom sprayer or to the top sprayers, not to both at the same time.
If your top spray arms never get water, then there must be an issue with that chamber motor to divert the water. A new sump assembly that has all the new parts.
Good luck.

Sprayer arm wont spin and soap sits in bottom


Hi-- Could be, but let's go over this stuff first. Remove the sump cover and spin the pump blade on the end of the motor.  If it is difficult to turn or 'rough' feeling, then motor is probably bad.  One time I found a bottle cap that a little Dennis the Menace had put in the dishwasher.  It made a perfect plug for the sump intake!  Anyway, if you can pull and re-install a dishwasher then replacing one of these pumps is easy. Part is about 140$.  Let me know if this info helps.  Please acknowledge this post. Thanks-Ed

Dishwasher appear to be clogged


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.
