Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Water doesn't come out of spray bar. water fills dishwasher (and can drain), it also gets heated. But the spray bars won't spray any water (top or bottom). Any ideas?


Answers :

There is a pump that sends the water to the spray bars. I believe it is broken. Perhaps there is a jam but I don't think it is possible because the water is filtered before going to the pump.

Anyway. The pump may need to be replaced (not the drain pump).

NEFF S4443 top spray bar not rotating, no water. Bottom spray bar rotates and sprays water. Checked and replaced fine/course mesh filters. Will pump to empty and refill on pre-wash (rinse). Seems the pump may have two outlets one feeding the bottom spay bar (nearest from of machine) and one just behind which feeds the upper spray bar. Running without spar bars attached (including mechanism feeding to bar, water is only being forced out of the from outlet. Any ideas before I start taking it apart

My chef classic dishwasher is not completely cleaning the dishes. There is no obstruction to the tablet/powder door opening, although there is a small amount of powder left at the end of the cycle. Both top & bottom spray bars are clear & rotate, the water is heating & there appears to be plenty of water getting water into the machine. Drain filters are also clear.

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model #FDB635rfs It is not that old, but appears to have quit working. It sounds like it runs the water gets pushed in by the tube on the side but goes straight to the bottom of the washer. It looks like the spray arms are not spinning. Water is not circulating.

Hi I have a Nemo Dishwasher and the top spray arm is not turning.

My dishwasher has stopped cleaning plates properly. It makes everything wet but at the end of the cycle the detergent block is half dissolved at the bottom. I have just run a cycle and opened the door during this. The bottom is full of soap suds and water and the top spray bar is dripping water after I open the door but when I close and then reopen a few secs later the top spray bar has definetly not rotated. The water is also not hot, this dishwasher is a cold fed only machine so I guess the el

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

I am not getting any water out of the bottom spray arm in my bosch SGS47E02GB35 dishwasher. I have cleaned out the plastic pipe assembly on the left hand side of the machine and the plastic tubes that sit to the right of the pipes. I have blown through many of the other pipes to and dislodged quite a lot of debris which has now been cleared out of the machine. The machine completes its cycle and water comes out of the upper spray arm (there may not be as much water coming out as there should be)

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, model KUDS30IVWH3. The dishes have not been getting as clean lately, the bottom is decent but the top rack is not getting very clean. Also, when I open the door after the cycle is done, there's a bunch of detergent at the bottom of the door and on the floor of the dishwasher, like it isn't getting sprayed all over or something. Don't know if I have to check the water intake valve or if maybe the sprayers could be partially clogged.

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

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now.
