JENN-AIR Model number JD3B10AWX. Bottom of dishwasher is dirty, I want to clean it. I have removed six screws holding plate down, but cannot find any way to remove spinning blade.

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?

After running our dishes through a wash cycle we noticed there was still a lot of food stuck on the plates & glasses etc. We cleaned out the trap but due to the murky water in the well, we also pulled out the racks & removed the bottom plate. The underside was greasy and had a lot of grim stuck to it as well as the bottom of the drawer itself. We washed the filter trap, swing arm and plate in the sink. We loaded it with the dishes that previously did not come clean and ran a full cycle. The

Brand new ge GDF540HSD0SS dishwasher just installed this week has a middle arm that is not spinning. This is the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack, and sprays water up. Water is coming out fine but no spinning. As a result, the inside of dishes on top rack are not getting clean.

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin. We also noticed the water in the bottom when opened is not as much and it is cool not hot. The dishes on the top rack will not clean, and the bottom is not completely clean. We have checked water pressure and water tempurature through the house, All is operating fine. This dishwasher is only 1 year and 10month

My lower rack will not clean bowls or cups and I have to be very careful how I place plates. The serviceman has been out twice and I have run vinegar through multiple times with no improvement. My top rack is working fine. I have tried running it on different settings and we have verified that the lower wash arm seems to be spinning. The temperature seems to be fine. Even glasses placed on the lower rack that weren't very dirty seem to have a scum in them when finished. Any ideas?

Re: Thermador Dishwasher DWHD64E I love the dishwasher as it performs well and quietly. My problem is with the flip tines in the bottom rack. It was a great idea that allows for different configurations when loading dishes BUT the tines do not stay in place. I will load plates, for example, and as I add a plate in the established configuration, the tines move collapsing the entire row of plates. The repositioning notch does not hold up with the weight of the dishes. I prefer the old station

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!


Welcome to FixYa,Based on your description... I`d suspect a plugged or really dirty wash pump. It could ultimately be a worn out wash impeller/chopper assembly, but I'd certainly try my suggestions before considering that. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

My Frigidaire FDB935RHS0 top rack is not getting enough water (pressure) to rotate the top rack sprayer. We have looked at all the connections under the machine as well as the tubing, but we have not found any obstructions or problems. The water moves very slowly up the tube to the top of the machine and the water only seems to trickle out of the feed line therefore the sprayer doesn't spin or spray. We have disassembled the bottom sprayer and have found no obstructions there either. Do you have
