Thread: Whirlpool Dishwasher spray arms not spraying or turning

    Whirlpool Dishwasher spray arms not spraying or turning

    Model Number: WDT710PAYM4
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    My water supply was switched off while my dishwasher was running. I estimate it ran water-less for over an hour. Now my dishwasher fills but the spray arms do not spray water. I assume it's the pump but don't know how to test it.

    * Is it possible something else was damaged besides the pump?
    * How do I test the pump?

    I bought it for around $400 just over 2 years ago. If I have to spend more than $200, I'd rather just replace the dishwasher

    It sounds like it probably burned out the circulation pump motor when it was running waterless. You would need to do a voltage test to see if the pump is receiving approximately 120v while it is supposed to be running. If there is power to the pump and it is not running then the pump is bad and it will need to be replaced.

    The pump is sold two different ways for this dishwasher:

    Circulation Pump & Motor - Part # PD00004824 (mfg # W10510666)

    Sump & Motor Assembly - Part # PD00006683 (mfg # W10482480)
