If I hold the spray arm in place as you describe and the dishwasher does not leak and assuming the water level is correct, does this mean the spray arm is bad (no apparent cracks in spray arm)?

Thanks, Tom
Tom, You've got the basic idea, if the spray arm doesn't move and the jets never point towards the door, and it doesn't leak, then the arm is the problem.

As for the proper water level, it should be as high as the tub bottom flange, when you open the door or slightly (1/8 in) higher. The float assembly should move up and down freely on the float guide assembly.

I'm pretty sure you'll find a problem with the spray arm, but let's be sure.

Good Luck,
Thanks for allowing to assist you,
