Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

What will keep the 4-way hydro sweep spray arm from roating


Answers :

Not sure what make or model dishwasher you have. But most likely it is a KitchenAid/ Whirlpool that use the 4-way hydro spray arm on the lower level. I am guessing the middle and top spray arms are rotating.
\015\012
\015\012If you have cleaned the spray-arms then the likely causes of it not rotating is either wash motor not creating suffficient water pressure or due to blockage further in where the water enters the lower spray arm.
\015\012
\015\012See the assembly diagram for a KitchenAid/ Whirlpool dishwasher.
\015\012You will have to access this part and find the blockage. You will also have to check the filter plate for any dirt collecting as the amount of water flowing back into the wash arms can get affected if the filter plate is not clean.
\015\012This model also has a very sofisticated wash system of adjusting the wash water pressure by checking dirt in the water through a soil sensor. If this sensor is not clean, it may also affect the water circulation. See part no. 46 in the tub diagram.
\015\012
\015\012If you cannot find any obvious blockage then buy a Finish Dishwasher cleaning kit from the supermarket and run the dishwasher as per the instruction on the kit. That should remove any buildup of dirt on the sensor and inside pump.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps.
Hi. The arm can be blocked by dishes, utensils or other items placed in the drawer above or below the arm. Also, if the tube in the rear of the machine is misaligned or not in position at all to channel the water, the arm will not rotate as it is the force of the water that makes the arm move. j.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS2 dishwasher does not spray water thru the wash arms nor do they seem to turn. Additionally, one of the the bottom arms hits the "cap, internal rear feed" where it clips to "feed tube assembly" when rotated by hand. The spray arm assembly appears true on visual examination. The unit fills, cycles and pumps out in an apparent normal way. While on this site a while back I was advised to clean the unit and referred to a downloadable repair manual that was, in fact, not

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.

Design Flaw I had the same problem. While under warranty they "fixed" the problem by putting in a zip tie (no joke) to keep top spray arm from rattling. The tech said they were working on a resolution of the design flaw. Then, when the zip tie broke I called them again. This time they replaced a small o-ring where the water line comes into the top spray arm. The o-ring eventually fell off. When that came out for the 3rd time, they re-ordered the same o-ring.

The spray arm, above the top rack, keeps unscrewing during the wash cycle. Just the arm comes off leaving a round plastic part attached to the top. This can be unscrewed and inside is a white 'washer'. The arm can be clipped back but comes off again in the next wash. The plastic 'washer' has to be turned over to allow re-attachment. Is a washer missing from inside?


Could the arm be mounted upside down and rotating the wrong way? Just an idea... Some of these can fit either way and the retainer will fit either side of the arm. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
