Kenmore Quiet Guard - upper wash arm not working

\015 I've got a Kenmore Quiet Guard 3 machine that was almost new when we bought the place. It worked great for a while, but now leaves dishes very dirty, and the upper rack is not cleaned at all. I've been watching, and the upper wash arm isn't even turning (which explains the dirty dishes on the top rack). Is there a filter I should clean (can't see one), or what on earth is the problem? I thought Kenmore products were more reliable than this! It's pretty disgusting: I need to wipe food grime off the top inside door after every load.\015

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. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

Broken dishwasher We recently had a plumbing problem that resulted in the kitchen sink overflowing and flooding the kitchen. The cabinets to the left of the sink were full of water and the dishwasher to the right of the sink will not work. It says it is washing and using two different washing modes, but I cannot get it to start over. What can I do? It is a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2.


If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days ... Dishwashers

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

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

No, the designers put it in there for a reason; it won't work as well without it, as it would with it in. Probably the mounting tabs are broken or sprung. A new tower isn't very expensive. You can probably get one from SearsPartsDirect.com, Repair ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes.

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 float seems to be working, not too much water in the bottom. I am stumped.
