SOURCE: bottom spray arm not rotating

The arm usually will stop rotateing because there is a obstuction in the arm itself you will need to remove the arm normally unclips (older machine used to scew off)When you have the arm out check all hole top and bottom and open any that are blocked rinse out arm and replace give it a wash and see if there is any improovement,let me know.
Thanks

SOURCE: dirt left on dishes on top tray; bottom tray washes fine

The broken bottom arm is probably preventing any water / water under pressure to get to the upper arm.
After you replace the lower arm, you should have much better cleaning in the top shelf.
While you are in there replacing the lower arm, recommend you remove the filter under it and clean the filter and any debris you find. Be careful of broken glass!
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Whirpool dishwasher, top tray spray unit does not spin

When the spray arm does not spin and even the powder does get mixed in, your probably have a failing pump/motor.
Before you call for service, try the following. Remove the lower spray arm and filter beneath the spray arm (and as always, check for plugged spray holes and for any broken parts.) Screws will need to be removed to to this.
Rinse everything in the filter, removing anything that does not belong.
With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area, looking for anything that may be blocking water flow. Watch out for broken glass down there!
Look closely at the impeller, looking for damage and that it spins freely and is securely attached.
While you are looking down there, inspect the heating element for damage/being broken/bumpy when it should be smooth.
Reassemble and run a load of those gathering dirty dishes!
The detergent ~should~ dissolve and clean effectively. BUT, if you have recently bought a cheaper, generic dishwasher powder, buy yourself a name brand powder like Electrosol or Cascade and only use it. The cheaper stuff is junk and will rarely clean even in perfectly operating DWs.
If all this does not work, then the pump motor most often the problem and needs to be replaced. When it is being worked on, make sure the heating element is checked. If I were replacing the pump motor, I would also replace heating element at the same time.

I had the same problem and thanks to derofeyev I figured it out. I thought I would post some pictures for those who might still be confused. Lift tray and put tower through.

The spay tower in the bottom fell out. should


If the spray tower is not in place then water will not get to the spray arm for the upper rack. You should be able to re-install the tower. Look for small tabs at the bottom that fit into slots in the mounting. The tabs should snap in or lock when the tower is turned slightly. If the tabs are broken off you should replace the tower. You can use the dishwasher without it but he dishes on the top rack will not get cleaned and the pressure tot he bottom spray arm may be reduced causing dishes to not get completely coean.

My whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of door


Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?

It won't turn on and F1 is flashing


There is a leaking from the top lid causing your bottom tray wet. Need to pull out the tube to dry out the bottom tray by putting in the small tower to soak it dry. Need to unplug power cord for 24 hour to have sensor dry out. However if you don't fix the leak, as soon as it run, water leak coming down to the bottom tray will activate the wet sensor then the same problem is happening again.

Kenmore DW model 15999 Lower Spray Tower Came off


Yes, I was able to get it fixed.
The spray tower actually fits in the rack (I had thought it fit in the top of the lower spray arm - wrong!)

If you were to look at the spray tower itself, it has 2 little clip like plastic protrusions that with a little twist will clip onto the lower rack!

Push the lower rack in and you can see where the center would be, (right over the middle of the lower spray arm ).

Now pull out the rack and take the spray tower and slip it under the rack up thru the bottom in the position you noted was the center (from above).

Now with the spray tower in place, slide the rack back inside the dishwsher and you will see that the tower will be sitting directly over the top of the exact middle of the lower spray arm.

Voila!

Whirlpool Spray Tower


I got the same problem and spent a couple of days trying to figure it out. The solution is extremely simple - you just snap the tower to the bottom tray. You need to lift the tray, insert the tower through the middle cell of the tray, and just snap it on it. That's it - no bolts, no connectors, nothing.

Spray tower fell off


The Spray tower fits in the bottom rack, Its actually pretty obvious as there is no way it can sit int he position it has to without being in the rack itself otherwise the rack and tower would block each other all the time. 
 Examine the base of your spray tower it should have two "clips" or plastic protusions that will, with a circular twist, snap onto the bars of the middle of the rack itself. Then when in place and your rack is slid inside the dishwasher the tower should sit directly over top of the exact middle of your bottom spray arm. 
et Voila.

DISASTER! PLEASE HELP. WOKE UP THIS MORNING & DISHWASHER MELTED!!!


Amsanta, sounds like something got hung up on the heating element, stopped the lower spray arm and things started to melt. The lower spray arm, part number, 154414101 is easy to change out. There is also a lower spray arm support 154294101, don't know if you will need that. I believe on your model the lower spray arm just snaps on. There is a tab on the filter screen that will rotate to unlock and the filter screen will lift out. Now the lower spray arm support is accessable. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to get it fixed under warranty. Catriver.
