I have been trying to troubleshoot this issue. It's filling and draining fine. Just not washing. I know the spray arms are supposed to spin and shoot water during the wash cycle, but when that happens I hear a clicking noise from something and the arms don't spin. Also, water trickles out of the arms. I figured it was the circulation pump, so I replaced it. Same problem. Searching online seems to always show the circ pump as the issue, but if there's a seperate motor that spins the arms that's not working, then that may be the issue. But if it's just an issue with a motor spining the arms while the pump is applying the water pressure, then wouldn't water be spraying out of the completely still arms instead of just trickling out? Questions I have:
1. Is there a motor completely seperate from the circulation pump that is causing the clicking noise and not working?
2. Is there a valve somewhere that may be stopping the motor and/or circ pump from working entirely?
3. Is there a way to tell the dishwasher to just run the circ pump instead of a full wash cycle so I can test the 120v power flow with a multimeter? I have to take the dishwasher out and lay it down to access the pump, so I can't just tell it to go through a whole cycle and wait until I think it is sending power to the pump.
4. Is there a diagnostic that I can use with this specific dishwasher?
I'm going nuts here. Most of the videos I see online don't match up with my specific dishwasher, so it's hard to do this myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
