Clean the spray arm, they get clogged with bits of food and don't spin.

That is the most common problem, can also be the fins on the pump impeller are damaged from olive pits or broken glass.

Does it get hot? If the heating element is shot it won't clean as well either.

Cheers,

Kev

The top spinner/cleaner dish sprayer thing isn't spinning or spraying water on to the dishes on the top shelf. The rest of the dishwasher works. Any suggestions on how to fix?
