My GE PDWT580P00SS dishwasher was not cleaning on the bottom.  I determined that the bottom and middle spray arms were not turning.  I removed them both and cleaned them out and they appeared to be turning after that, but now the bottom is not turning again. I checked to make sure water was coming to the bottom by placing a solo cup over the bottom center to see if it got blown off or not.  It did. I noticed that the bottom arm seems to fit loose.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Are the wheels on the bottom basket? If they are missing, the basket will set on the lower arm and it will not turn?

Wheels are there.  I even took the basket out.  Still not turning.

After the water stops filling in the basin and when the spray starts, open the door and see where the water fill level is relative to the heating element.

Looks like the water is about .5" below the bottom of the heating element.

Does anyone have any suggestions on this one?  Would like to try to fix what seems like a simple issue myself if possible, but the wife is getting a bit perturbed.
