Brada dishwasher the arms do not spin to clean the dishes


... Dishwashers

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno


Hello :)don't feel bad, I run into this kind of problem at least once a week.\015\012It does sound like the pressure isn't there so you're not getting water to the upper spray arm. What you need to do is take the pump apart, which i ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.
