Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

With the symptom you`ve described, "The dishwasher goes through the wash cycle but doesn't wash No water sprays at all"
this is most likely a plugged up sump or a worn chopper/impeller...but likely just clogged.
\015\012
\015\012The first place to look for a remedy is the sump-well, wash pump area. You`ll need to remove the lower spray arm and then the filter below it.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".

a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.

5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find either alot of food debris, garbage etc. , but also a cover with either a single #15 torx head screw or it will simply be held with a lock tab which must be pushed to one side and the cover will pull straight up and out. ( I haven`t gathered my own photo`s of this area yet, soon to come )

Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it to can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.

If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Hi,

\015\012\015\012Take everything out of the appliance and take the filters out.
Check that these are clean and clear of any debris.
Check\015\012 the spray arms, especially the holes at the ends, are completely clean \015\012and clear of any debris. (The end holes propel the arms and wash the \015\012detergent out of the drawer).
If you have any dishwasher air freshner or hanging things on the baskets, take them out.
Check the arms spin freely by hand.
Set the machine going on a wash.
Once washing, open the door and set the arms at a front to back position.
Close the door and let the machine begin washing again.
Listen to the sound of the water, can you hear it swishing?
Very quickly open the door and check to see if the arms are turning.
If they are turning, all well and good.
If not you need to check that there is enough water pressure being generated by the wash motor.
If the motor sounds as though it's struggling it could be down to debris within the pump or the pump is failing.

Check the spray arms and do the checks first.
If these are all OK, just come back and we'll dig deeper into the problem.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.

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.
