Samsung dishwasher: upper spray arm rotates slowly

I have a samsung dishwasher dw60h3010 for two years..after wash cycle I find always debries of food in my glasses specially in top rack..everything is ok (detergent, water level, salt, pump drain).
I notice that the pressure of water is not enough to make spray arms rotate, it rotates slowly.
They are not clogged.
What can be the causes?
Thank you.

Welcome to the forums! I'll ask the old refrigerator light question. How do you know the arm rotates slowly and that the pressure is to low? Just curious. Is the connection between the back wall seal and the arm on the drawer tight? Is the connection solidly made?

Everything is ok and my dishes are full of debries after wash cycle ..I see that when the upper spray arm is lightly clogged with few pieces it doesn't rotate at all. To rotate it must be perfectly clean so I suppose that is due to low pressure of water..even if arms are perfectly clean my dishes are still not clean.

If the wash arms get clogged with crap they won't turn correctly. The wash arms don't turn fast anyway. They don't need to.

It sounds like your washer is not draining out the debris. The first thing to check is the drain hose positioning as that is most important in proper drain operation. The hose needs to be fastened to the bottom of the countertop.

You saw crud and it was brought back in the DW with residual water. Is your discharge line looped like Pete indicated? Water can settle below the interior of the washer while leaving stuff behind.

I try to test the Evacuation system so I poured one liter of water into the machine and I put a bucket at the end of the drain pipe after draining the bucket is filled to one liter of water.
I put some clean glasses,after the wash cycle the glasses are not very clean and I found a debries like sand.
I poured hot water with salt in the dishwasher the next wash cycle was with good result but the second not good at all.

Then loop isn't high enough to keep crud from your sink drain system from backing up into the dishwasher. It needs to be high like Pete mentioned or like this, using your drawing. The discharge line must be looped above the level of the drain.

I also change the configuration of salt to h6 and pour salt with hot water in the drain system.
The result is not bad especially the lower basket but not satisfying especially the glasses in the upper basket next to the door

Is this a free standing dishwasher?? That laundry basket will get really heavy with water Have you removed the grinder filters in the bottom of the dishwasher and cleaned the area out, yet? That appears to be recycled crud that is lying in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Why are you using salt? It could have a detrimental effect on the inner workings of the pump and interior of the DW. What type/brand detergent are you using and are you using a spot remover?

It's a free standing dw..I use salt because it cleans and uncloggs the evacuation..
I didn't use a spot remover. I use detergent of 'carrefour'. All dishes are clean of greases, eggs, oil... But it seems that dw is cleaning and rinsing with dirty water...I cleaned all the parts in the dishwasher.

Where are you located...France? Some of the things you mention aren't normal North American practices with dishwashers, and Carrefour is not a common brand name of detergent.
