Check for utensils or pot handles that may be hanging below the bottom rack and interfering with motion of spray head.
Clean holes with toothpick.
Check temperature at hot water faucet with meat thermometer. If below 120°F (49°C), turn up thermostat on hot water heater.

The illusive technical repair sheet that isn't there...
Turn the thing a little further and pull UP. It'll come out. You've got to put some muscle into it!
The manual for the GU1000/1200/1500 is here (it's almost the same and as close as I can get you to a 3200)

There is a plastic clip that holds the spray arm to the inlet line. This clip is in the center and has to be sqeazed together to release the arm.
Both upper and lower spray arms become clogged by different objects like paper, plastic, stems from fruits, etc... These are particles that cannot br dissolved be the detergents.

This is Maytags solution
Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.
I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.
Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

When you say the dishwasher is running do you mean that the pump is operating? If the pump is not pumping water the arm will not spin. Is there a bottom arm and is it spinning? If it spins then the pump is working. The upper arm will not spin if it is blocked by hitting a large dish or utensil. There should be some sort of tube or tower (some are collapsible) in the center of the lower rack that shoots water into the bottom of the spin arm above. Is it missing, blocked or clogged?
