Answers :

When the spray arm does not spin and even the powder does get mixed in, your probably have a failing pump/motor. \015\012
\015\012Before you call for service, try the following. \015\012Remove 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.\015\012
\015\012Rinse everything in the filter, removing anything that does not belong.\015\012
\015\012With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area, looking for anything that may be blocking water flow. Watch out for broken glass down there!\015\012
\015\012Look closely at the impeller, looking for damage and that it spins freely and is securely attached.\015\012
\015\012While you are looking down there, inspect the heating element for damage/being broken/bumpy when it should be smooth.\015\012
\015\012Reassemble and run a load of those gathering dirty dishes! \015\012
\015\012The 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. \015\012
\015\012If 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.
