Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB8600AWS Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
The unit seems to start out fine by filling with water but it no longer makes the noice is used to. I do not think the spray nozzles are turning. As soon as I open the door I do not see them turning. The back of the unit is not covered up yet so I can see the motor and it is running - just no nozzle action. I did check all three sprayers and all holes are now cleaned out. I assume the pump is located under the lower spray nozzle and above the food blade. I removed everything there but it does not seem out of the ordinary. Is that 3 inch round part attached to the hex shaped motor shaft the major pump part? Looks like something I see in other pumps. How does the water get forced thru the sprayers? Just by this spinning? How do I know if I have enough water in the unit? Can I remove anything inside like all the trays(top two spray nozzles) and unscrew the lower sprayer to help troubleshoot this problem? Thanks, JD
Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.

SOURCE: top sprayer wont spin
The sprayers are not powered but rely on the water pressure to spin them. If it's not spinning it could be
the spinner isn't engaging in the top rack as you slide it in
blocked jets on the spray arm
blocked feedpipe to the spray arm
Most dishwashers are fairly easy to dismantle to check the first few
