\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the\015\012spray arms and try to clean the holes with a pin or straighten clip as the\015\012filter and spray arms holes might be clogged up with whiting from hard water. This\015\012can also occur if the pump filter clogged up, split in\015\012the spray arm, discharge housing broken, pump impellor split/broken, spray arm\015\012binding on its support are some common trouble makers. You’ll have to remove\015\012the spray arm and check the filter and housing as a place to start.\015\012Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment\015\012for further assistance.

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. What now?

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model number DU1055XTPQ4 that is not cleaning the dishes. When the dishwasher is working, the bottem arm is turning and water comes out the holes. The middle arm has some water coming out, but does not turn. The top arm does nothing. It appears I have a pressure problem. I took out all the arms and cleaned them, along with the plastic tube that feeds them water. They had some build up on them but not much. I have the same result as before. I took off the

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

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

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

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

Two problems: the water pressure in the arms is low. If you pop the door, arms are not spinning as it should. Each time you start and stop, the arms move a tiny bit. Have cleaned the filters and the spray arms completely. Also, detergent door no longer pops open.

Whirlpool DU1101 Hello, My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway

I am not getting any water out of the bottom spray arm in my bosch SGS47E02GB35 dishwasher. I have cleaned out the plastic pipe assembly on the left hand side of the machine and the plastic tubes that sit to the right of the pipes. I have blown through many of the other pipes to and dislodged quite a lot of debris which has now been cleared out of the machine. The machine completes its cycle and water comes out of the upper spray arm (there may not be as much water coming out as there should be)

I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

Figidare dishwasher Upper arm not rotating, no water coming from top hole to fill upper arm.Lower arm rotates shoot water up cleaned filter screens. Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.
