Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher's washer arms do not spin and only squirt water and not very much pressure. anybody know what the problem could be?
The recirculating pump is clogged. Take out the bottom rack and remove the sprayer. You'll see some goofy screws...remove them. I wish I new the model, but this is pretty self explanatory. If there's a tube that runs up the back of the dishwasher it can be difficult to remove, but don't be afraid to give it some elbow grease. Keep removing screws till you get to...you'll see what I mean...and clean out all the junk...good luck.

Sounds to me that the arms are pluged. The arms can be removed by removing the center nut or screw. Remove them and run it with them out and listen if you hear a strong spray, you should. Wash the arms out in a sink paying attention to the water coming out the small holes that nothing is trying to come out of them and that the water flows free, then reinstall them. let me know how it goes.

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
