Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

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

\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the\015\012Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the\015\012water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible.\015\012Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with\015\012this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store\015\012your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together.\015\012Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the\015\012dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded. To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with\015\012water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating\015\012element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try\015\012& listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough\015\012pressure.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the\015\012entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the\015\012proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check\015\012the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water\015\012is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in\015\012dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump. Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with\015\012today's dishwasher.

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

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.

I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

I noticed (when I opened the door mid cycle) that the bottom arm is rotating but the upper arm does not appear to be rotating. Any ideas why this is and how I might be able to fix it?

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

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

The upper rack side rail is loose where it attaches to the side wall of the dishwasher. It allows the upper rack to wobble. When the dishwasher is turned on, the force of the water pushes the rack forward so it detaches from the water supply and the arm does not rotate. The arm and connection are all clear and the arm is able to rotate, so those problems are not a factor. The wheels are in good condition. The left rail is a little loose; the right one is very loose. There must be a way t

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

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

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

My GE Profile dishwasher is not cleaning the glasses on the top rack. It leaves all kind of grit and food on the glasses. I did some testing and it lookslike the wash rinse/wash assemblies are not spinning at all. I think the conduit main may be blocked or leaking at the seal. My question is, how do you remove the track (conduit) that brings the water to the upper rinse arms?

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?


... Whirlpool GU1100XTLB / GU1100XTLQ / GU1100XTLT Built-in Dishwasher

Water is not spraying through the dishwater. The upper arm doesn't appear to have any water going through it as the upper dishes are dirty. Maybe not the bottom arm either as the soap is still in the dispenser.
