Re: Rinse arms not spinning
Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper brokeen or food chopper filter screen clogged.
Check water level: Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.
Inspect food chopper: Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

Using too much rinse aid will not work. Stick to user manual factory prescriptions. If you use correct amount of rinse aid, and the right product for your dishwasher, that is not the cause of the stains.
Ensure that you are using the right detergent along with rinse aid. Check specifications on manual.
Ensure that the drain well is clean.
Ensure that spray arms have enough pressure, check water level and impeller pump.
If you still get stains on dishes, and you are sure that they had been caused by limescale, that means that the water in your house is too hard. This will also damage your appliances in the long term, causing faults due to accumulation of limescale and rust.
The best thing to do is installing a water filtration system on the appliance inlet.Call your local appliance shop or technician to discuss about the problem and purchase a filtration system for your appliance.
You need to remove the wash arms by turning the nut in the centre of the arm and remove,then unblock the holes that are in the arms and replace them,test if the arms now turn and you can see a differance then also check there is salt in the salt dispensor located at the bottom of the machine.
the arm does not need much pressure to spin. but the arm stops spinning if a little pice of dirt is stuck inside or at the small holes. so best you can do is build out the arm and clean it, rinse it in reverse direction and get any dirt out.
You can try a few things to identify the problem.. first off... when you reinstall the cleaning arm..can you manually spin it freely? No binding or anything obstructing its path? If that's OK.. then you may not be getting water into the arm from it's feed. Many dishwasher arms rotate when water pressure is present.. You can verify you have water pressure by cheating the door interlock and cycling the system .. ( be careful.. since water will jet out pretty quickly) . If you don't have water pressure to the arm, chances are you have a bad or clogged pump, pinched or clogged hose from or too the pump.. Hope that helps...
