Question about Danby 22 in. DDW399 Free-standing Dishwasher

No pressure to drive swing arm.

Everything works fine. Everything except there is not pressure to drive the swing arm during the wash cycle. Repeat- everything else works fine. It fills. The domestic water pressure is fine. The timer runs correctly. The pump extracts the wash water. The rinse cycle comes on no swing arm movement due to no wash pump pressure. It drains properly.

I had a problem like this once, it turns out I had a potato peel that was pressing up against the hole underneath the mesh filter. Basically when the unit was off, the peel would sink to the bottom of the reservoir, but once the water started going, the peel would plug up the pump inlet.

Make sure this isn't the case by inspecting underneath the mesh trap.

Check first that no debris is blocking the holes in the spray arm where the water comes out, and clean out the holes. In case it will not solve your problem, it's look like a pump problem (the pump has two functions : drive water to the spray arms and to drain water out the washer). Open the rear panel and listen if the pump works during the wash cycle. In case it doesn't work, it should be replaced. Good luck !

Why low pressure to the wash arms during wash and rinse cycle?

The small holes in the wash arms could be clogged with scale or the machine's pump and motor assembly are not working correctly.
Also make sure that the inlet valve is allowing enough water into the machine as too little water could also cause this problem.

Everything seems to work just fine except the ice maker which stopped for no reason. I have checked everything. The water dispenser works well, the water pressure is more than sufficient. We lost power,...

I know of one trick that might solve your problem . First , make sure the lever that swings up and down during cycle is all the way down . Then , pour one eight ounce cup of water into the ice maker where the slots are . Hopefully , when the water freezes , the ice maker's sensor will detect the ice and start the dump cycle . If it does , and everything is OK inside the unit itself , it should be OK after it ejects the ice .

Machine (LG wm1280 7kg)works fine except drum wont roatae

You can repair it, but it really needs to be done by a qualified technician. What has very possibly happened, is the spider assembly has snapped that connects to the drum (that's the noise you heard).. The drum has now collapsed. Different machines open differently. The later ones have plastic outer frames, and when the "spider arm"collapses, it eats large chunks out of the drum internally. It in my opinion is not then worth the repair. For the older ones, one needs to remove drive belt and pulley then strip front of machine to enable you to open it up. This will let you then remove the inner drum. Inspect spider assy. and see if actually broken. (I'm sure it is.) Phone agents for replacement parts which will be 2 bearings and a seal and the spider assembly.Install and reassemble.

The dish washer is taking ages to wash and it not clean ing dishes well

ok so If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but, suddenly, your dishes aren't clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles:
1) Check your water heater's temperature dial to be sure it hasn't been changed recently.
2) Be sure dishes haven't prevented the detergent dispenser from opening properly during the wash cycles or kept the spray arms from turning, the lower arm from rising, or the spray from reaching the upper rack's dishes.
3) During the wash cycle, listen to the spray arm spinning inside. If it seems to be spinning poorly, clean out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire; wait for the machine to cool, and then remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hub cap and lifting the arm(s) off
