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

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

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

I have a model du1145XTPQ dishwasher. I doesn't seem to fill with enough water so I have to add with every cycle. The repairman says that there is no filter and my water pressure wasn't high enough. The water company was out and said water pressure was at 75pounds and that was not my problem. Is there a filter somewhere that might be cloged? thanks


The dishwasher has a float switch which detects if the dishwasher is filled. If the travel of the float is not sufficient it may be triggering early and causing the inlet valve to shut. Also see page 21 in the ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1148XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

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. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an

My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve ... Dishwashers

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like Jet ... KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

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?

I have a GE dishwasher (GSD4020Y70BB) new in 1996. I replaced the whole motor assembly in 2007, seal was leaking. My dishes are not getting clean now, dried food left on plates, coffee stains in cups not being cleaned. I removed main spray arm, found nothing, turned washer on and plenty of water gushing out. I took the cover off sump all clean. I removed the filter screen in the back, there appears to be a valve with some soft rubber around it. Water gushes out of this, does stop during the cyc

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

I have an LG dishwasher, model LDS 5811ww. The machine fills with water, then stops filling when the error code IE comes on. I have cleaned the inlet filter and the whole inside of the tub, by taking apart the sump filter. There is good water pressure filling the tank. When I turn off the power and restart any cycle, the pump will empty the tank, then begin filling the tank again...until it is stopped by the error code IE again coming on. The other thing I notice is the water level in the tub.
