Having problems with your Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Lower spray arm is not rotating

\015 I have a Kenmore model # 15819 dishwasher. I have determined that water is coming out of the lower spray arm, but the arm itself is not spinning. The upper spray arm seems to be functioning properly, as does every other aspect of the cycle, so far as I can determine from my tests and mid-cycle inspections.\015

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?
