First thing you want to do is make sure the spray arms themselves are o.k. The ports are not clogged and there are no cracks. Once you are satisfied this is not the problem, check the seal ring on between the lower spray arm and the spray arm support on the pump. See if it is out of position or damaged. Make sure the water level is not too low, should just come in contact with the bottom of the heating element. Next check your filters, look for garbage, plastics, anything that would clog it. Last would be the pump itself. Ron

SOURCE: no water from top and bottom arm
I'm not familiar with that exact unit. However, all dishwashers use a solenoid valve and pump to either send the water to the drain or to the arms. If the water drains, the pump is good. Check the solenoid valve. It may be jammed (toothpicks and food particles are wonderful) or burned out. If the valve is good and working, your timer is a suspect.

SOURCE: Washer arm not working
If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.

You can replace the whole top assembly. And before you run the cycles again, try putting a cup of Tang (dry) orange juice through the cycle without any dishes or get some Dishwasher Magic and you'll have a sparkling new dishwasher once again! hope this helps you!
