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

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

Dishwasher Repair Dishwasher is a Stoves/Newhome DW616 Rotating spray arms do not always operate. This is an intermittent problem - will sometimes work normally for a few days then arms will not move at all with no water coming from them. Machine appears to go through its normal cycle. Some times cycle starts normaly and spray arms stop working part way through.
It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. \015\012The motor (and pump) located beneat ... Dishwashers
Dishwasher fills with water, but spray arms don't spray water or spin. As the cycle moves forward, water is eventaully pumped out (so the pump is working). i've selected different cycles with the knob on the front of the machine but they all work the same.... no swishing with the spray arms. When the cancel button is pushed, the water is pumped out... as it should. Thanks for the help.

My dishwasher is not working properly, i have cleaned all the filters and spray arms, but still have food partials all over dishes. I did use a knife to hold down door latch so i could see what was happening when the dishwasher is working. Water does come out of the spray arms but they don't move and the dishwasher is empty, also now the latch won't catch since i used the knife.
Make sure the water temp is not too low. Make sure the pump is not clogged up with debris Check that hoses and spray arms are all clear. Remove spray arms and clean the holes in them. Make sure the shafts spins that the arms attach to. ... Bosch 24 in. SHE44C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

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?
Something could be in that checkball, see page 5 ... Frigidaire 24 in. GLDB653A Built-in Dishwasher

I have a frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a loose part inside the retainer in the ceiling that moves back into the retainer when I try to put the spray arm back on. How do I fix this and how do I get the top basket out to work on it?
The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the ... Frigidaire PLD4555RFC Dishwasher
I have a Frigidaire FDB125RHBO. The spray arm tower assembly is not working correctly it appears to be loose. The spray arm is not going around as near as I can tell. Water is going in the dishwasher fine. The soap dispenser is opening but there is still soap on everthing at end of cycle.
Water jet arm does not work water goes into the dishwasher dishwasher drains but the arm does not work the dishes are not getting sprayed with hot water the dishes are not getting cleaned the soap in the dispenser does not all come out
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
Design Flaw I had the same problem. While under warranty they "fixed" the problem by putting in a zip tie (no joke) to keep top spray arm from rattling. The tech said they were working on a resolution of the design flaw. Then, when the zip tie broke I called them again. This time they replaced a small o-ring where the water line comes into the top spray arm. The o-ring eventually fell off. When that came out for the 3rd time, they re-ordered the same o-ring. Now again, I am having problems with

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. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.
The top tray of our Indesit DI620 isn't washing properly. I suspect that the spray arm isn't squirting water, it isn't impeded by badly stacked crockery. I can't work out how to detach it so that I can look for blockages. Also, how can I check whether water is being delivered to the spray arm. Thanks
If you want to see if water is getting to the upper spray arm you can open the door while it's washing for a quick look before it stops or if you can manually press in the door latch with the door open you'll get a good look. You'll also get water i ... Dishwashers
