Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
If the water is filling to the correct level inside the machine but the spray arms are NOT spraying the water around, then either the main wash impeller INSIDE the pump is weak and not creating enough pressure, and it then would need to be replaced,or maybe the holes in the spray arms are plugged with soap or debris.
If when you took everything apart, you found a lot of "caked white stuff" on everything, and I mean everything, chunks of it all over the place.....well that is soap...built up from using too much,every time and I have seen it plug dishwashers to the point that there is no return, and they need to be replaced, as the soap plugs the hoses, spray arms, and coats the tub and racks, and really messes up the pump, kind of like too much blockage in a heart, and it cannot push the water through the machine enough to wash anything.
If that is the case, then you may think about replacing the entire dishwasher, or with taking it all apart again and cleaning everything, really, really well with distilled white vinegar, you may be able to save it.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
