Hi,

Your dishwasher has a lower spray arm. It may also have an upper spray arm at the top of the dishwasher. These spray arms are designed to shoot high pressure, high temperature water at your dishes. It is possible that the holes of the spray arms, where the water comes out, are blocked with debris, affecting wash quality. You should inspect your dishwasher's spray arms regularly. Clean out the spray arms as need be.


Goodluck,

Arm wont spin..drains fine..arm spins by hand fine


If the arms are not rotating then there is not water going through them.

Remove the arms and check all the holes for blockages.

Dishwasher-bottom arm not spraying


The spray arms can usually be removed by unscrewing (clockwise or counter clockwise depending on brand and model), or squeezing a retainer to release the arm. Before removing the spray arm, place the spray arms (all) in a specific position and activate the dishwasher for a few seconds with wash action. Then examine the position of the spray arms to determine if there was movement from the spray arms. If not, then the spray arm(s) are probably clogged and restricting water flow (which makes them turn). Make certain that you are positioning the plates, glasses, etc. in the dishwasher so that they have access to the water. If still no luck, contact an appliance service company.

Upper basket spray arm


Have you checked that the cover for the water inlet at the top where it connects to the spray arm is attached? It could have worked loose. Just re-attach and your spray arm should "miraculously" start rotating again!!

Danby DDW396 Spray Arm


The spray arm is controlled by the force of the water. There is no motor running the spray arm. If water is not getting to the spray arm, then it won't spin. It may be plugged with detergent etc. Just a note re. detergent. You shouldn't use hard or caked detergents.

Danby 22in dishwasher isnt getting enough water


There are a few things to check. 1. Do you have enough water pressure in your lines? It may not be filling enough. 2.Is the washer balanced? Try making sure that its on a level surface. 3. Make sure that your hose isnt kinked, and check the back in the screen to make sure it isnt clogged. 4. Is it above the height of its supply? If so, try finding a lower space to put it on. 5. Take a cup or two of vinegar and run it through a cycle. 6. make sure that, in the arm, there is no clogs or food. I'm not 100% sure what the problem is, other then its not pumping water into it at first and sounds like its blocked some where down the line. If you've never cleaned it with vinegar before, I'd imagine that would be the problem. Hope this helps
