Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

The top drawer started getting very loud - maybe the water pump? Now it looks as if no water is getting into the drawer so dishes remain dirty. The bottom works fine, and is not loud when running.


Yes it is likely the pump rotor is seized. I am assuming the water goes in to the drawer but does not get moved around by the washer arm. This i ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603 Built-in Dishwasher

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 Kenmore, Stock 15649, approximately 14 - 15 yrs old that worked fine until the past few days. The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?


Hello; first thing to check, which you don't mention, is which side of the glasses aren't coming clean; the outside, which would be caused by the TOP spray not working properly, or the INSIDE, which would be caused by the spray BELOW the top rack not ... Dishwashers

Have a dd603 with an issue...took off the arm and the metal silver disk (the ones with holes) to get to the wash impeller-(the thing with blue blades) the wash impeller will not spin-which I think is part of my problem, since i looked at the lower drawer and was able to spin the blue blades easily...was also able to pull it right out.

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out.

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.
