Having problems with your KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01ILBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

Top sprayer is not cleaning dishes. No water is coming out on the dishes.


Answers :

There may be one of two problems here and you're going to have to stick your head inside the dishwasher to solve either of them by yourself. First, in the back of the washer is a tube that goes up to the top shelf. The sprayer tube fits OVER the mouth of the other tube and then carries the water to the arm. Sometimes the support brackets for this tube become dislodged and the sprayer tube just droops but doesn't connect with the water tube. Check this first and reattach the brackets.
If this is not the problem, you might have to remove the sprayer arm (should be a screw or bolt under the arm) and flush it at the sink. There may also be pieces of paper or fragments of bone or fruit and vegetable peels stuck in the spray openings. If these won't slush out, you'll need to remove them with tweezers.
I hope this helps. It always works for me. If I have helpee, please come back and rate my suggestion!

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin. We also noticed the water in the bottom when opened is not as much and it is cool not hot. The dishes on the top rack will not clean, and the bottom is not completely clean. We have checked water pressure and water tempurature through the house, All is operating fine. This dishwasher is only 1 year and 10month

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts.

Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model number DU1055XTPQ4 that is not cleaning the dishes. When the dishwasher is working, the bottem arm is turning and water comes out the holes. The middle arm has some water coming out, but does not turn. The top arm does nothing. It appears I have a pressure problem. I took out all the arms and cleaned them, along with the plastic tube that feeds them water. They had some build up on them but not much. I have the same result as before. I took off the

Turns on, the entire cycle runs, but no water pumps through the sprayer. There is water present on the bottom....and I can here the water pumping in at the beginning of the cyle....but the dishes are not being 'washed' by the sprayers. I have disassembled and cleaned the entire inside and sprayers to no avail. Im thinking its a pump/motor issue but Im not sure because the sprayers spin, the heat comes on, the detergent dispenses....but no water is being sprayed. Thanks.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?


The inlet filter is probably clogged. Try letting it fill up. Open the door to stop it right after it starts to wash Pour a gallon or two of hot water in and see it it works better Stop and do this everytime it goes to fill up. If the door opens ... Dishwashers

- 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

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes; water not coming out of top spray arm


You are right to go to the inlet filters. If they are clogged you would lose pressure, but not that much...The pressure pump is probably not outputting any longer. Locate it and see if it is moving freely. ... Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

My dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean, so i started taking the lower end apart to clean, got to a gray wheel looking object with a screw in the top which was recessed and still the wheel looking object will not come off, it will spin but will not come off, I need to finish taking it off because I dropped a screw down in the bottom area where the water settles.

Bad circulation pump. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).
