LG Dishwasher - lower spray arm gets stuck

\015 I recently purchased an LG dishwasher LD-2131SH second hand. The bottom tray where the plates & cutlery go does not get clean. It seems as though the bottom spray arm gets stuck on the plastic frame at the rear of machine. Have ensured that no cutlery or dishes are in the way. Any ideas/\015

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

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

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around.

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning.
