Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IRBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
In a dishwasher you can see the water trickle upward to the upper nozzle in dishwasher...but if it does not have enough pressure,it will not function properly.tap the delivery tube that feeds this nozzle and you will see the water pressure jump imediately.so the problem lies either with the pump or maybe the impeller....for some reason the full flow of water is not making it to the upper spray arm.
The problem was not enough water to get the arm to spin.To test this just add a pan of water to the wash cycle and see if the arm spins. If it does then the problem may be with the water intake line. There is a screen at the connection where the intake line enters the dishwasher. So turn the supply valve off and disconnect the intake line and remove particles that may be traped in the screen. The cause of the particles is from the hot water tank that tend to accumulate a bit of corrosion on the bottom of tank. To remedy this just open the valve at the bottom of the hot water tank and drain it in a pan until the water is clear.
There might be a clog in the water supply line from the pump on the bottom to the upper spray arm under the top rack .sometimes residue just on the top shelf may stop the upperspray arm rotating.you will find small hole pointing sideways at each end of the spray arms.The spray from these holes propel the spray arm to rotate.Chek if they are blocked.

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
