Having problems with your Baumatic 23 in. BDW13 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Baumatic BDW13 Problem with lower spray arm: arm is not being fed with water and is consequently not turning. (Note: top arm is turning as usual.) Might this be a problem with the recirculation motor? Any help most welcome! Jonathan Drennan


Answers :

I think that you may be on the half wash setting, check to see if the light labeled as number 4 is on while washing, if it is, then you need to simple turn off this option. Let me know if it isn't.

Hi,

Here are few tips i can give you if these doesn't help then he only solution is to get it repaired.

When you check to see if they are moving,they stop,so check the positioning of the arms when you open,each time.

Check the spray arms for blockage again and make sure the end holes are clear. The end holes are used to propel the arms.\015\012
\015\012When it's washing you should hear the water hitting the top and sides\015\012of the machine and there will be a noticable "swishing" sound.

Tip of arm should have clear holes as this\015\012provides main rotation force, debri can block entire end internally\015\012while appearing clear at the hole.\015\012
Blocked filter will reduce water pressure at nozzle and of course\015\012always rotate arm manually before running to ensure non of the load is\015\012obstructing.

Goodluck..

FDB105OREC4 My dishwasher is not cleaning my dishes. I push the start button and water seems to be trickling in then it stops and no sounds protrude from the machine for several minutes.

The soap dispenser usually opens and the soap block that usually dissolves is setting on the bottom of the machine. It seems the water is plenty hot but the rotating washer arms might not be moving.

Whirlpool GU2400XTPT Dishwasher is on island of Utila, Honduras. Upon return after several months absence, light was flashing but dishwasher would not turn on, light would not turn off, no other buttons would light up.

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?

My Kitchenaid dishwasher Model KUDPO1FLSS3 stopped working. The electrical works, as we checked the breaker and the little lights on the panel turn on, but the machine will not start. We're thinking there might be a problem with the connection where the door closes. We've checked out everything we can think of, but no luck. The plastic panel is worn away in places, so some of the buttons are exposed-can't imagine that matters, though. Help!

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The
