Question

Dishwasher not pumping out water


So my dishwasher decided to "crash" on me this week. It will fill with water at the start of the cycle, but when it comes time for the arm to spin, zero water. I don't mind washing by hand, however, i'd like to have use of my dishwasher again. Any tips on fixing this?

not sure exactly what you mean, is it not washing, can you hear the motor run. a few more details would help.

Yeah, you can hear the motor running, but the spinning arm wont spray water out after the initial fill at the beginning of the cycle.

may have to take the cover off the filter and clean the filter, when they get plugged the pump can not push water into the spray arms
