Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an

The disk washer doesn't drain at the end of the rinse cycle. There is a humming sound but no water is forced through the hose to the sink/garbabe disposal. At the end of the wash, there is a large amount of dirty water in the bottom of the washer. I removed the spray arms, the spray arm holder and the screen and then removed the water, and found a couple of pieces of plastic. But I don't see how I can remove additional parts from the washer bottom. What could the problem be? Is there a fi

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #665.13842K601. The problem that it has is that it does not seem to be pumping the water around the tub after it fills. It will fill and drain fine but will not wash. I have removed the spray arms and checked all the parts that I can get to from the inside but fear that it may be a pump or jammed impeller. it does make a faint buzzing sound when it should be operating. Any input would be great. Thanks, Matt

I have a mod. GSD2200G00WW . It has low water level and not enough pressure to turn the spray arm. When first starting i see water coming in but not enough. I added water in manually with a container and turned on and the spray arm rotated fine. I closed the door and turned back on and the water drained out of it instantly back to a low level.

My fisher paykel DD603 fills with water at the start of the cycle and stops with the following error code and a beeping noise: - error U1 spanner symbol - crossed out faucet symbol. The water level is high enough that the spray arm is floating in the water. I am able to drain the water by entering the hardware diagnostics mode and running the motor in the drain direction. By removing the filter plate and examining the impellers I am not able to see visible damage. All filters are clean. The

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

Something is causing the DW motor not to fire (so water is not sprayed around). It fills fine. It drains fine. I've tested the motor - it also works. I've tried all the various cycle choices; all do the same thing. Water fills but is not pushed around the tub (absolutely no motion from the motor, whatsoever). There was some debri down in the bottom, but I've cleaned it all out, wiped everything clean, and still no motor activation.

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions.

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

I have a Quiet Guard Standard model #587.151524 that is not cleaning the dishes. I took the bottom spray arm and screens out and cleaned them, (they had a heavy buildup of what I would say is calcium. The arm cleaned up fine but the screen still has some areas that will not allow the water to drain. I tried CLR and it helped but the screen is still probably 60% clogged. Do you think this is the problem getting the dishes clean and if so do you have any suggestions about how to clean the screen?

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

Dishwasher fills with water, but spray arms don't spray water or spin. As the cycle moves forward, water is eventaully pumped out (so the pump is working). i've selected different cycles with the knob on the front of the machine but they all work the same.... no swishing with the spray arms. When the cancel button is pushed, the water is pumped out... as it should. Thanks for the help.

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump
