Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


Answers :

The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.
Hello sir

Make sure that nothing is blocking the sprayer arms. Some\015\012models of dishwashers have an alternating sprayer arm washing system.\015\012What this does is cycle the washing action between the lower sprayer\015\012arm and the middle sprayer arm. The cycle begins with the lower arm\015\012spraying first, then switching over to the middle sprayer arm, and back\015\012again through-out the washing cycle. The sprayer arms will pause as\015\012they switch over from one to the other, making it sound like the\015\012sprayer arms aren't turning. If you're sure that the arms are not\015\012turning at all, open the dishwasher and verify that nothing is blocking\015\012the sprayer arm rotation, and that there is water in the bottom of the\015\012sump covering the filter area.

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

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

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

GE Dishwasher, model: GHDA470MBB When you turn it on, the motor seems to run for a minute or two and then just stop. It started not cleaning the top rack, I ran JetDry hardwater cleaner in it. Then the bottom rack didn't seem to be getting clean either. Next, it just doesn't seem to work at all as described above. It is fairly new, bought July 2006 (but wasn't used from March 08 to August 08). Thank you for your advice.

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher that is 4 years old. Model No. GLD2440RES1. The problem is that there is a high pitched whine and a "rattatt" sound from the pump/motor when the d/w is running. Not hearing this sound when the d/w is draining. Sound seems to be getting louder. What is the issue and how would I fix the problem. Thank you!
