Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

How can I tell if my blades actually spin in my dishwasher?


Answers :

Place them in a known position and start a cycle. When you hear what should be washing action, open the door to see if the positions have changed and if water covers all of the interior. If they don't seem to have moved, you will need to tear down the lower spray unit to the deck noting the position and orientation of each part. There will be at least one screen that is probably plugged with food and hard water deposits--wash any screens in hot water, detergent and white vinegar until clean. Clean any openings in the deck itself that may be clogged with food deposits. Re-assemble in reverse order. Check both spray arms for plugged small spray holes and for split seams. Hope this helps!

My dishwasher (GLD5850L000S) doesn't clean because none of the blades are spinning. Water is coming out of them with great force - the little holes in the blades are unclogged, but they just do not spin!Jacky


Hi, W/D here.Look again at the spray arms. They have slots on the edges of them, near the tips of the arms. Thats what causes them to spin. Most likely, your clogs are there. If you can remove the spin arns, do so, and clean everythin ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher

I have GE GSD2300r00bb, it was working just fine the other day no unusual noise, today we tried to run it, just a little bit into the cycle, i heard a strange stalling noise that sound like the motor is stuck or something, i put a camera(in a ziplock bag) in the dishwasher to see if the blade is spinning, no spin, the water did squirt for about 1 sec then stop but still leaking out somewater.

We have had this dishwasher for approximately 2 years. Dishes do not clean well. For example, I put a mixing bowl in that I just mixed brownie in--and the bowl did not come clean (simply a thick chocolate mix). Glasses do not come clean. They always have a fine residue on the outside (food). My husband just took the (blades) out that spin and dispense water and cleaned them. The water volume seems better now. Still, if I remember correctly, the dishwasher cost around $900. It definitely

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

I have a older Simpson 880 Dishwasher, 6 program, (circa 1995) that I got second hand. It works quite well, but due to its usage the dial which has the program on it has worn and is very difficult to read. so what I need I suppose is another program dial or someone who can tell me via a photo what is marked on a dial you can actually read as mine is worn off and is for the most part indecipherable. I can read where program 5,6 and 7 are but not anything else, I got a instruction book from ELectr


In regards to your program dial, there is a number 4 2 clicks in front of the 5. That's for normal wash. There's #3 for heavy wash, a #2 for pot scrub and #1 for pre-wash. There are two "clicks" in between each #. There's an R for "rinsing and a D fo ... Dishwashers

My dishwasher fills with water and then stops. it thinks that it is washing but never actually washes anything. It dumps the detergent out and everything but the spray wands never spin and water never circulates. Does the problem lie with the circulation pump or motor? Thanks in advance.
