Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

I own a Kenmore UltraWash dishwasher Model # 66513833K601. I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that my dishes are not getting as cleaned as before. I checked the bottom spray arm and found that it wobbles while rotating. It doesn't rotate smoothly when I try to spin it on my own. Could this be my problem? Thank you for your help.

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 Whirlpoos Dishwasher DU8000XR-1. The arm on the bottom of the dishwasher is loose and you can lift it up and down. It does not turn with a smooth action. In fact, when the dishwasher is running you can hear this arm clattering. It must be wobbling up and down rather than turning smoothly. Can this be fixed?

I had a service tech at my house to repair my refrigerator. He also took a look at my Maytag WU504 dishwaser, which was not cleaning the dishes anymore. He was less familiar with dishwasher diagnosis, but found that the lower spray arm was pumping out water through the jets properly in the cycles, but that the spray arm was not rotating. He seemed stumped and called his supervisor, who suggested it might be the wash impeller. I have looked at the parts diagram on partselectdotcom and taken t

I haave dishwasher model 665.743893. The top dishes do not come clean and I suspect that the top arm is not rotating because it is in the exact same position each time I open the door and at the end of the cycle. I took it off to remove possible debris but found none, though difficult to look inside. Do you have any suggestions?

The dishwasher has three arms in it. The top and bottom arm do not rotate. The middle arm rotates fine. The arms will move when manually munipulated but do not spill while the dishwasher is on. There was a loud grinding the first time the dishwasher was used and it seemed to work fine but after about two months of use the arms will not rotate.


Sounds like maybe some rinsing salt was spilled when the salt reservoir was filled the first time (or broken glass, this always used to be an issue in catering) and got pumped through, lodging in the gap between the arm and it's mounting. this can ro ... Maytag Dishwasher

The rotating arm at the bottom of my LG intello dishwasher keeps falling off. It is the stainless bit that sits ontop of the rotating bit at the bottom of the machine.

It has 4 little grips on the bottom but just wont stay on the arm? Has something come off or worn away for it not to stay on. It just swivels round an

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
