I pulled out the racks and decided to take off the upper (mid) arm. It came off with an adjustable wrench. When I looked at the arm I could tell that some of the holes were blocked. Some debris had gotten lodged in the holes and were blocking the water flow. I used tweezers to remove the debris and it solved the problem. I then pulled out the lower arm and cleaned it with warm water. There were soap deposits and I wondered if other debris could be blocking this as well. Finally I went onto the web site and saw that for $40 including shipping I could replace these parts with brand new parts. I did and the machine washes like new again.
