We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

Frigidaire dishwasher doesn't seem to wash top rack. The dishes are oily with stuff dried on them. It worked for several years before this. I took out the sprayer and ran water thru it to make sure it wasn't clogged. No luck. It almost seems that no water is running thru the top sprayer.

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help.

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher. Lately it has been sounding like the top sprayer is working only sporadically. The cycle begins & it sounds like it doesnt begin spraying until halfway thru the cycle. I open it & check it & see it's not turning. I've cleaned out the holes the best I can. It does this with the rinse cycle also. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

TOP ARM HANGING DOWN-Dishwasher's working fine, problem is that the wash arm/spray thing at top is lower than it used to be, we only noticed because when pulling out the top rack the top arm/spray thing at top gets hit by the rack. Work around has been lifting rack up at angle to get past this, but everyone at some point forgets to do this and we are worried eventually something will break. HELP???

I have an shx65905uc bosch dishwasher that runs and works except for that there is not enough water pressure to rotate the top wand or operate the top sprinkler. The bottom wand does have water and turn and does the top but it is not enough to turn it. If i remove the bottom wand and plug it off then the top will work properly.

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin.

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

We have a Fisher& Paykel dishwasher with 2 drawers -- one on top of the other. Model DD603. The bottom drawer works fine. But the top drawer is not working properly -- it repeatedly stops in the middle of the cycle and there is water left in the drawer. Previously when this happened, we called a repairman; he removed the top drawer from the machine, said it was "off track", flipped some lever, and put the drawer back. He seemed a little embarrassed by having to charge for a service call for
