NEFF S4443 top spray bar not rotating, no water. Bottom spray bar rotates and sprays water. Checked and replaced fine/course mesh filters. Will pump to empty and refill on pre-wash (rinse). Seems the pump may have two outlets one feeding the bottom spay bar (nearest from of machine) and one just behind which feeds the upper spray bar. Running without spar bars attached (including mechanism feeding to bar, water is only being forced out of the from outlet. Any ideas before I start taking it apart

We discovered broken glass dish in bottom of dishwasher with some pieces below the bottom pump area. Shortly after the washer is making a louder noise during operation time. The water pump is quite when filling but after fill the noise comes during the wash time. The heat element works fine. What can be done to quite the wash cycle????

Makes rumbling noise during wash cycle. I've pulled the pump and found no debris. It's been making this noise for about a year now. No problems with our dishes getting washed. Do you think the bearings inside the motor may be bad? If so, would I need to replace the motor and pump assembly?

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

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Mod: 665.1373) makes bad noise after the tub fils and the pump starts running. (Not sure how to describe noise.) Bad pump? Other? I have checked for anything obstructing rotating parts and that is definitely not it. My guess is something wrong with the pump, but not sure. If so, I'm wondering what my options are. Like are their common problems with pumps that can be fixed at home? Replacement?


Definately sounds like a pump on its way out. Probably not the pump itself - but the starting capacitor.However it may be cheaper for you in the long run to have a professional out to diagnose the problem instead of throwing money into it blind ... Dishwashers

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

I have a Bosch dishwasher, M# SHU3035UC/U12. After the cycle is finished, the water is still on bottom of machine, it doesn't pump it out, so I changed the pump. Now when it washes, it fills and washes, when the timer advances it dies, there is no noise and nothing happens, the only way that I get the machine to pump water is by lifting the red overflow lever. Only then does it pump out the water. what can be my problem?

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 took it down on the inside and checked for anything that might be stopping the pump, but see nothing.

Asko Dishwasher starts the cycle by pumping out as it should. But does not stop pumping nor advances. If I click it forward manually it starts to fill and then before overfilling goes into pump out without washing then just repeats this. Pressure switch tubes and air trap chambers are clean and no leak to trip spill switch. I'm guessing It is either the timer or faulty pressure switch any clues ???

Hello I have a Bosch dishwasher SHU9905UC and went to clean the spray arms etc and ran the machine without the filter screens in the bottom. **** went everywhere, food, soap scum etc and it first stopped draining and filling. Cleared the drain flap and now works on drainng and filling. But now the wash pump is not running. I figure **** is somewhere in the wash pump or blocking a micro switch etc. I can turn the impellor with my finger. Is there a micro switch in the pressure chamber that is a

It appears that there is not enough water pressure through the sprayers to to wash food 'deposits' off the plates and dishes.We have well water and it has a some what high lime content so I suspact that there is some calcium / lime clogging in the machine.

My Karcher 411A seems to have lost pressure. Behaviour is this, when you press the water release on the spray gun you get 100% pressure for like 10 seconds and then it seems to dwindle down to 30-40% of its total pressure. When the pressure cuts down I can hear more noise coming from the gun sprayer aswell. So not sure if the problem is in the gun or the main pump unit ?


Sounds more like a clog on the intake side. Check the filter and the hose on that side. ... Pressure Washers
