Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 If the dishwasher is not getting enough water or the pump is not supplying enough water pressure, the spray may not always spin. If the detergent is making too much suds, it can reduce the pump pressure too.

If the water level is up to the bottom of the safety overfill float in the front corner after it fills, then I suspect the pump assembly is worn out and needs to be replaced. There are two impellers below the spray arm support. The upper impeller is the wash impeller and the lower impeller is the drain impeller.  It may be worth removing the lower spray arm, pump cover and filter assembly and check for any restrictions.

I added an image below of the wash system below.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

You can remove that pump outlet cover and inspect the seal. If that seal is not damaged, it does not need to be replaced. If it does leak, the water would shoot out through that outlet cover in a similar manner to the way that it would if the pump outlet screws were loose. It will affect the water pressure that is going to the spray arm. After you remove that cover, you can check for debris or damage in that sump area just below the cover. If you find no problems there, you can check components further down in that sump. There is not a troubleshooting procedure to check the impeller water force. You can check spray coverage by placing several coffee cups right side up in the corners of the upper rack. Start a new cycle in the dishwasher and allow it to spray for a few minutes. You can then check the water level in the coffee cups. They should be nearly full if you have good spray coverage. The crack in the nozzle cap or a problem with that bearing could contribute to your spray coverage problem. That dishwasher does appear to be a model from at least 1987 or earlier according to the information that is in our system. I don't recommend that you spend too much money on a repair of a dishwasher that is that old. You can view current dishwasher models on the Sears.com website.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

James posted a link for a previous answer in the above response that contains some good troubleshooting for a similar model of dishwasher. Those tips in that answer may help you resolve this problem. If you need to check the sump area of your dishwasher, you will need to remove the bottom spray arm and then use the basic procedure shown in the image below to access the sump area in your dishwasher. Your dishwasher will look slightly different than the one shown below but the basic procedure is the same. You may find the cause of your problem without disassembling that sump assembly if the pump outlet screws are loose. If you find those screws loose then I recommend that you tighten them and then test the dishwasher to see if it will spray properly. If it does, then you don't have to go any further into the sump area.

These tips may help you resolve this spray arm problem in your dishwasher. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair this problem, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
