When I open the door a mall amount of water can be seen coming from the bottom spray arm but not enough to turn the arm.
What is the problem likely to be please.

Hi Micheal, the dishwasher is approximately 15 years old. Colin
Thanks Colin,
What you are experiencing is a weak water pump.
It sounds about right considering the age. Its pretty easy to replace requiring only a few basic hand tools and not too much time;-)
I will help you if you want to do this.
Also I will let you know the best place to get the water pump.
Please let me know if you would like to go this way?
Thank you Colin.

Hi Micheal, it would seem that I have pressed the wrong button somewhere down the line, but as you will have noted from my last reply to you I am delighted with the responses that you have given.
The way this web site is set up is very confusing for the occasional user like myself, there are too many pop ups which are very difficult to deal with on an iPhone.
All the best Colin.
Hi Colin, thats ok, lol
just look for the accept button and press that.
It wont cost you anything to re rate:-)
Thank you Colin.
