Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

As for the top arm not turning, clean all the holes in the top arm with a toothpick. If the holes are clogged, it'll stop the arm from turning properly. Other than that, if the arms turn properly, you need to order and replace the impeller seal kit because it's not producing enough pressure to cause the top arm to spray (bottom arm is easier since the water doesn't need to go as far). Either way, below is a link to the kit you need to order with a video that shows you how to replace it.
