Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So if you open the dishwasher in the middle of the cycle you dont' see any water at all inside the dishwasher correct?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes there is water but there is no spray and the spray arm does not move.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
ok, then that means your pump and motor is just bad and unfortunately the pump assembly will need to be replaced to fix the issue.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Is there any way to tell if it is the impeller?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
If you take it apart and the impeller is just stripped out or broken and not attached tot he motor shaft, then yes---but I have honestly never seen that happen.
