Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDM25SH Built-in Dishwasher
It was moved from one home into another, on it's side. Worked at last house. Now after installation into new house, it appears like the arm blades will not rotate. The copper water tube is warm to the touch, as is the plastic water hose. When cancelling, warm water comes up the air/drain on top of the sink top. Any idea what the issue could be?

kenp, did the repairman check the screen where the chopper is located? If this screen becomes clogged with gunk, water will be restricted going to the center arm and you will either have slow or no roatation. He would of had to remove the lower spray arm, filter and accumulator assy. to get to this. I had one the other day with the exact same problem and the chopper screen was plugged completely. If your dishwasher is not working right, you have 1 year warranty, parts and labor. You have a case for them to come back. Catriver...post back

Welcome to FixYa.
There likely is a blockage in the filter/screen and chopper assembly below in the sump well, it's just not obvious/visible. The place to look for a remedy is the wash pump area, you`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.
1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...
1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
