The arm melts if the arm gets stuck or water isn't filing the dishwasher or spraying inside the dishwasher. Start a cycle and see if water fills the dishwasher. Make sure water is spraying as well. If that all checks good, you just need to replace the arm and you'll be good to go. If it's not filling, make sure the float switch in the front right corner isn't stuck in the up position and if that checks good, then replace the electronic water valve below your dishwasher. Lastly, if the dishwasher fills and drains but it doesn't spray the water, replace the circulation pump.
