Re: no water from top and bottom arm
I'm not familiar with that exact unit. However, all dishwashers use a solenoid valve and pump to either send the water to the drain or to the arms. If the water drains, the pump is good. Check the solenoid valve. It may be jammed (toothpicks and food particles are wonderful) or burned out. If the valve is good and working, your timer is a suspect.

Unfortunately you may have lost the controller or if you are lucky just a loose wire. You can get to all of this by taking the door cover off. If it is not a loose wire the control would be my next best guess. Sometimes they just go.
Hi, if the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check the drain line and pump..
clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason
that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where
the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain
line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose
or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the
Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The
pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the
bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the
dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm,
and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan
blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller,
which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller
is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash
impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port.
These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are
defective, you need to replace them.
Check that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.
Check top basket is straight and moves back fully, remove top spray arm and check holes are not blocked. The water pressure from the top arm is deminished if they are blocked and once the dispenser door opens it is the top spray arm water that propels the tab into the tank. Also, check that when your tallest item is in the bottom basket it does not obstruct the rotation of the top one.
Hope this helps to give you a starting point to remedy fault.
sound like a low water level and or pressure issue. Start machine on normal cycle after filling open door and ck water level. should be up toJUST below heater assy.. assumiong htats good set hte wash arms to a set positon so you can watch for rotation. close the door adn after a few secs open rapidly and look for middle arm to be spinning, even the top 3rd row arm if present, should be spinning spinning . if not its possible that the motor/sumo assy is blocked w/ foriegn debris. remove the lower spray arm (hold the nut and spin arm)then remove 4 or 5 torx 15 screws. probly pretty glogged under there. if not id look into replacing motor sump assy/seals worn and not throwing water where it should go
These arms spin based on water pressure generated from the washer itself.
Run the washer. As soon as the washer is full of water and the wash cycle starts, open the door and verify that you have at least a couple inches of water in the machine. If there is not enough water in the machine, the pump will not be able to provide pressure. If this is the case, the filling sensor is malfunctioning and will need to be checked.
There's a pump that provides water pressure. It's at the bottom of the machine beneath the lower rotating arm, probably beneath additional plastics. Remove these two items and verify that there is no debris blocking water from reaching the pump as if this is the case, water pressure cannot be generated.
Good luck... let me know what happens, and please rate accordingly.
check your water intake- i had the same issue - a leaky fitting wasn't supplying enough water to the dishwasher. had exactly the same symptoms you describe. fixed the leak, reset the dishwasher & it's working fine.
This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time. It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles. If water comes out arms but arms won't turn, check all holes in arms. It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn. If arms spin freely by hand, it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.
make sure all filters are clean.make sure the wash arms are not cracked at the seam.if all that checks good you could have an obstruction to the pump.also check to see if you lose any water when running a cycle because the drain valve may be stuck open.the other possibility is that the impeller on the pump is worn or broke.
