Top arm does not seem to be going around when diswasher is running. Top shelf articles are not getting clean. Black scummy material gets stuck in the top arm jet.


HI-\015\012If you can remove the spray arm, usually they screw or pull off, then put it under the faucet and start picking out all the stuff out of the jets. The best tool i've found for this is a large safety pin, bend a little hook on the end of i ... GE Dishwashers

Figidare dishwasher Upper arm not rotating, no water coming from top hole to fill upper arm.Lower arm rotates shoot water up cleaned filter screens. Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. 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 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?

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions. Water comes out of the holes on the top bar but it won't spin. Water pressure inside the machine with all the bars and ducts removed seems good. Bottom bar works fine. Any ideas please?


Try starting the washer, then opening to door and checking the water level in the bottom of the machine, as far as I know, there should be enough water there to disolve the tablet when it sits in the bottom. if not that much, bung in a few cupfulls a ...

... LG Kitchen Series 24" Tall Tub Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless-Steel

My dishwasher filter keeps getting plug up with large food particles. I take it apart and clean the screen. It works for a 2-3 -4 weeks before I have to do it again. There is a spinning fan on the screen. I'm wondering if this scrapper fan is working at all. If it was I think it would keep the small screen free from particles. The first thing that happens is the top cleaning arm stops working.' Thanks


Hi Judy. The only way to know for sure is to power up the fan independent of the machine and see if it still works. In the meantime, rinse and remove all debris from the dishes prior to placing them in the machine, including pots and pans. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

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

The spray arm, above the top rack, keeps unscrewing during the wash cycle. Just the arm comes off leaving a round plastic part attached to the top. This can be unscrewed and inside is a white 'washer'. The arm can be clipped back but comes off again in the next wash. The plastic 'washer' has to be turned over to allow re-attachment. Is a washer missing from inside?


Could the arm be mounted upside down and rotating the wrong way? Just an idea... Some of these can fit either way and the retainer will fit either side of the arm. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
