Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher did not clean well. I replaced the seal on the bottom spray arm. there is a wobble now. the nut does not seem to screw down tightly. there is nothing wrong with the nut, it simply does not reach. I don't know if the lower arm is supposed to wobble, or if the nut should screw down tight. I can't seem to find a picture anywhere so I can visualize exactly how the spray are fits together. Is there a diagram on line? Dishwasher model: whisper quiet #KUDM25SHW1 bought in 1999

The top spray arm of my Frigidare model FBD4315LFC0 Aqua Surge dishwasher fell off. Their appears to be a missing part. I've been searching online for a schematic and can't find one thorough enough to use. The parts I have are: 1. The top sprayer arm (the one in the top of the tub) 2. The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4. The keeper nut that screws directly onto the wate

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

The bottom spray arm screw seems to be stripped and just turns , so I'm having trouble removing it. This is the first time I've tried removing it. It is at least 5 years old, but the dishsoap dispenser didn't open this time so I figured it would need cleaning. What do I try now? What will happen if I can't tighten the screw back up. I've tried and it slips. Help Please.

How do i put the lower spray arm back together? I had to replace the top screw part and it seems to stand up to high. I have a small white plastic ring, a larger white split ring and the arm itself. I have tried every configuration to put this back together but it is not right - the new "screw" part number is the same as the original.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS2 dishwasher does not spray water thru the wash arms nor do they seem to turn. Additionally, one of the the bottom arms hits the "cap, internal rear feed" where it clips to "feed tube assembly" when rotated by hand. The spray arm assembly appears true on visual examination. The unit fills, cycles and pumps out in an apparent normal way. While on this site a while back I was advised to clean the unit and referred to a downloadable repair manual that was, in fact, not

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

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

Hi, I have an LG LDS4821 dishwasher and it appears to stop working properly. The dishes don't seem to be cleaned at all. It seems like the spray arms are not spraying the dishes as the dishes are still dry/dirty after a normal wash cycle.

I can hear water pumping into the dishwasher, but when I opened it during a wash cycle, there was a puddle of water at the bottom of the

My dishwasher doesn't seem to be washing correctly - it heats up but there is hardly any "water" noise going on in there it's like it doesn't spray around in there like it should -- as soon as it starts spraying it seems to be draining out.


You might have a clog at the water source. Where the water attatches to the washer there should be some kind of screen in it. Try and find it and clean it out. ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
