Question about Hotpoint 24 in. DWF34 Built-in Dishwasher
On wash cycle upper spray arm normal pressure
but lower spray arm hardly any flow at all i have checked to see if blockage but none obviuos
would appreciate your advice please
many thanks martin
If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

SOURCE: No water flow to
So, you know that the screen in the water fill hose is not blocked, right?
The next most common problem is a failed float/ float switch. When that switch fails to open/close properly, no water will enter.
Last, the solenoid valve where the water fill hose connects to the DW, could be failed.

possibly a water pressure problem that's where I would start,could be control board get on-line parts diagram and check the diagram for other sensors that that unit may have.
