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

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions. Water comes out of the holes on the top bar but it won't spin. Water pressure inside the machine with all the bars and ducts removed seems good. Bottom bar works fine. Any ideas please?


Try starting the washer, then opening to door and checking the water level in the bottom of the machine, as far as I know, there should be enough water there to disolve the tablet when it sits in the bottom. if not that much, bung in a few cupfulls a ...

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

Brand new ge GDF540HSD0SS dishwasher just installed this week has a middle arm that is not spinning. This is the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack, and sprays water up. Water is coming out fine but no spinning. As a result, the inside of dishes on top rack are not getting clean.

I have an LG ldf7811st dishwasher. My bottom arm spins with water, my middle arm does not spin but does have water coming out, and my top arm doesn't spin or have water. I have just finished taking apart the arms, the supply to the upper arms, the filters and the impeller. I cleaned everything and nothing really seemed clogged. I have tested it since and it still has the same problem. I know that they aren't spinning because i placed them in a certain position before i ran the test run. They


I'm thinking like you're thinking, that it's something affecting the water pressure, but you've done everything in the upper section, so the problem must be from below, unless you have a leak somewhere you haven't noticed and are losing pressure beca ...

Hi, my hotpoint aquarius df61 makes all the noises of washing, i hear the water going in, motor is running, however i dont believe the spray arms are revolving, so the dishes are not getting clean. i have cleaned the individual holes in the spray arms, but i don't think the water is getting up the back pipe and into the top spray arm. it does not spin at all. no problems draining. help please. and were can i get a copy of the user guide, free preferably. thanks


How old is your machine? it is posible to have something in the watwr pump, you hear the water and the motor, but the fan of the pump (washing pump) is blocket. also the pipes hat make connection to the water pump and the arms. at someoane i found gl ... Dishwashers

No water delivered,or "spinning" of upper spray arm.Serviced @n year ago & worked very briefly. Spray arms & filter cleaned. Using a hose as water source to test.....spray arm isn't blocked.

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts.

Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

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)

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes; water not coming out of top spray arm


You are right to go to the inlet filters. If they are clogged you would lose pressure, but not that much...The pressure pump is probably not outputting any longer. Locate it and see if it is moving freely. ... Dishwashers

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

Mod #: MDB6600AWB Ser #: 16505148CG No water comes out of spray arms, checked and cleaned filter-OK. Wash impeller is cracked where it slides onto the hexagon rod but it you take the filter flow plate off and put the impeller back on, when you put the unit on rinse only and quickly open the door you can see it is still turning and moving the water. The unit still fills and drains. it just does not have enough force with the impeller to force the water into the spray arms.

I have a maytag mdb7100aww. The dw fills with water and starts the prewash cycle. After the dw empties for the first time it will not refill with water again.

In most units, the movement of the arm is powered by the water. If the water does not come out of the arms, check the filter for debris or the arm itself. This could also be caused by mechanical issues. You may want to inspect the arms itself for ... Dishwashers

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?
