Having problems with your Frigidaire FDB520RH Builtin Dishwasher ?

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. 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

Figidare dishwasher Upper arm not rotating, no water coming from top hole to fill upper arm.Lower arm rotates shoot water up cleaned filter screens. Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve ... Dishwashers

Hi I have a Blanco dishwasher BFDw8 which is having poor wash results in the top tray I have tried all the trouble shooting things in manual. Investigated further by opening door during wash cycle several times and discovered the top arm is not moving although water is still coming out of the arms. I did get a split pea particle out of the arm approx 2mm and have since had a mildly better wash and have used superior wash powder and rinse aid to try and help. Also have put a cleaner through di

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model number DU1055XTPQ4 that is not cleaning the dishes. When the dishwasher is working, the bottem arm is turning and water comes out the holes.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

Top arm is not getting enough water to rotate. The bottom arm is working good. Could this be caused by hard water deposits in the tube leading up to the top water funnel?


Yes it could but more likely the jets in the upper arm are clogged ... also often on older machines the pump wears to the point of not providing enough force for both arms .. even more likely there is usually a plastic screen surrounding the pump in ... Dishwashers

I have just finished taking apart the arms, the supply to the upper arms, the filters and the impeller. I cleaned everything and nothing really seemed clogged.
