Normally you might think that the heater has failed but this could well be that the main wash (circulation)pump has either burnt out or has something blocking the impellor.This would explain why the spray arms are not turning and without circulation of the water you will not get any proper heat.It would be an exspensive repair if the wash pump has gone.Its also quite a tricky job to remove a blockage.
It would be worth checking if you are still in the 5 year major parts warranty.
Hope I helped in some way.

Water coming in dishes not getting cleaned enough.possibly not coming out of the sprayer and spin blade

Look inside the spin blade and see if there is food or paper inside of the spin blade exit holes blocking it from spraying and spinning. Also if the spin blade is not aligned with nozzle which sprays water into the blade it will not work. I have had both happen several times. Sometimes dishes or pans pushing against the spray nozzle will also miss align the spray jet so the water does not get into the spin blade. I have also had the spin blade be completely worn and would not spin creating the same problem you've had so I had to replace it. Hope this helps.

After a regular dishwashing cycle, our dishes and glasses are not getting clean. They are left with a white film. We have checked and all holes in the spray arms are open. We have tried a rinse agent,...


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.
Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

How can I tell if my blades actually spin in my dishwasher?

Place them in a known position and start a cycle. When you hear what should be washing action, open the door to see if the positions have changed and if water covers all of the interior. If they don't seem to have moved, you will need to tear down the lower spray unit to the deck noting the position and orientation of each part. There will be at least one screen that is probably plugged with food and hard water deposits--wash any screens in hot water, detergent and white vinegar until clean. Clean any openings in the deck itself that may be clogged with food deposits. Re-assemble in reverse order. Check both spray arms for plugged small spray holes and for split seams. Hope this helps!

My dishwasher is not spraying water and the blade is not spinning. The water just oozes out of the holes in the blade.

The pump is either faulty or blocked, or both... OR the electronics controlling it, has gone kaput... this will have to be looked at.

Andis Super 2 Speed AGC Clippers - The blades get very hot !

Buy some Kool Lube (Oster) or Andis Blade Coolant. Both are aerosols. Your 2-speed runs faster, so your blades heat up quicker. Check them often by touching them to your inner wrist, and spray them when they are hot. A bonus is that the sprays also disinfect! (FYI a hot blade can badly burn a pet, so make sure you keep them cool)

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy

If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

Floor fan

Possibly pick up some canned air, (air under pressure) spray that into the electrical housing or windings (do this outside) and get as much dust out of the system as possible. That will hopefully fix the issue but if not, you can go to Home Depot and pick up a spray can of graphite. It used to come as a dry powder but I just found they sell it in a spray can. Not sure how it works, also read the directions to make sure you can spray it in the area where the blades attach to the housing. Some products may catch fire if it gets into the motor housing so read the can to make sure it's not flammable. Otherwise, you can get some powdered graphite and shake some in where the blades spin. It's rather messy but it is a dry lubricant. Good luck, maybe someone else has a better idea?

Blades not spinning

open door while working and check water is coming out of the jets in the spray arms. if so, remove spray arms and clean. fault may be caused by debris in the end jets which being at an angle are used to turn the arms by the water spraying out. this is not related to water temp. only way to check this is to open up at the end of heat cycle and see how hot water is
