GE Quiet Wash 3, top arm does not spin

\015 Dishes on the top rack do not clean well and have a residue left since the top arm does not spin. Any suggestions for a home fix it.\015

Answers :

It sounds like you don't have enough water. Your water inlet valve may be not letting in enough water or the plastic pump inlet screen located on the bottom of your dishwasher had something blocking it.

  1. Check to see if there is something blocking the plastic screen on the bottom of your dishwasher.
  2. \015\012
  3. When your dishwasher is in the final cycle add a pot of hot water to the dishwasher and see if your dishes come out cleaner.
\015\012If the dishes come out cleaner you may need a new water inlet valve.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any 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?
