Question about Danby 22 in. DDW396 Free-standing Dishwasher
The arm is not spinning. the water seems to be circulating but i have tested it by removing the basket, noting where the arm is and starting the machine. a few minutes after the wash cycle has started, I shut off the power and open the door. Sure enough the arm is still in the same place. I noticed this because some of the dishes were coming out still dirty and not all of the soap would be used. When I first got it the dishes would be clean, now most of them look blotchy.
Check the spray holes in the arm that spray sideways instead of straight up, they may be clogged. use a toothepick or other small
pointed object to unclogg the opening. Mine was clogged and it is working good after I did that.

No solution but the same problem....so someone else must have the solution, hopefully.

I'm an owner as you and do all my repair on multiple FAV6800A machines.
I don't feel from the info supplied that you have a drain pump/drain line issue because you do not take a "ND" error code for "no drain" during the wash cycle.....the wash cycle completes. I don't believe you have a stuck slightly open water inlet valve in the machine because I feel the machine would eventually over fill and flood the laundry area in time.
Is there any standing water in the wash basket when you remove the wet clothes after the final Spin Cycle?
I would place the machine in Service Mode and run it thru a Quick Spin Test (with a wet load) and record the fastest RPM speed the wash basket will spin up to.
You need the Service Manual to help you get into Service Mode to do the test. Are you going to DIY or call in repair service?
If you want to run the Quick Spin test I will look for a previous post on this forum where I called out the process steps.
