Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
This sounds more like the sprayer arm isn't rotating freely.
Open the dishwasher and pull the bottom tray forward (remove it if you like)
Reach in and try to rotate the sprayer arm. It should move freely. If you give it a quick flick, it should spin around at least one full revolution before coming to a stop.
Sometimes these become blocked by dishes or plastic bags in the bottom of the dishwasher, other times they simply wear out and you'll need to replace the arm assembly. When I replaced this for our GE dishwasher this spring, the total cost was around $38 for the parts. The replacement took less than 5 minutes, with no tools.
If you want help tracking down replacement part numbers or a source to buy them, comment back here and I'll google them up for you.
