Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Spray arm on KitchenAid KDC 17

\015 The spray arm doesn't turn. If I put grease on it it will turn. Seems to have plenty of water pressure. Is it possible for these arms to wear out and if I replace the arm should I replace the shaft it sits on?Fletch\015

Answers :

Water pressure should spin the arm. If it is not spinning and you have tub full of water-circulation pump could be the problem

Removed lower spray arm of KitchenAid dishwasher and need to reinstall it. This installs over a spray arm nut that is a split ring. The nut goes over the outlet pump. I cannot get the nut to go over the outlet pump and then go inside the spray arm, which is 1/4-inch smaller in diameter.

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers

My kitchenaid dishwasher leaves food particles on the dishes. There's supposed to be an "Ultra-fine filter" under the spray arm. Perhaps it is clogged, but I don't see how to remove the spray arm so I can check it and clean it. The owner's manual is no help. Can you tell me how to do this?
