Question about Danby 22 in. DDW396 Free-standing Dishwasher
Most of the solutions listed here did not help much. I recently had this problem and the solution for me was very simple but difficult to see at first. The spray arm turns only because of water being ejected horizontally in a little propulsion system from the end of the arms, not because of any motor. It turns out the little holes where the water jets come from that twirl the arms can get clogged. In my case it was a few pieces of food matter that had become tightly lodged in the holes somehow, preventing the water jets from coming out. Check these holes for food blocking them and then remount the arm and try it. Worked great for me.
Now ya need to find out how the food got by the screen and into the pump motor to get shot into the spray arm

Tips for a great answer:
have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
will help you with the online buying...
