how much water is in the bottom after this fills?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Just started cycle again and got blocked arm error, there is about one inch of water in the bottom.


Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
did it finish filling before the error came up? if this isn't getting enough water the arms wont spin and the machine may be thinking the arms are blocked, try pouring enough water in by hand till it reaches the heater and see if it comes back if it does the lower spray arm sensor switch is bad. Part 271570or possibly stuck,

started it again and it ran to completion on short (28 min) cycle (i added about 20 oz of water two minutes in), an intermittant problem with the switch you describe seems logical, is this something I can replace (I am semi handy)

I cant find the diagrams of its location in your machine but I think its under the spray arm assembly you can order the part @ if you want to try, thanks Bryan
