Maytag eq plus dishwasher- how to disassemble bottom spray arm?

\015 I have a maytag eq plus dishwasher and want to clean the inside components as we have hard water and dishes are not getting completely clean. Can anyone advise on how to take apart bottom spray arm (propeller shape)? Thanks. Paul\015

Answers :

Its probably leaving water in it and is clogged in the elecric pum or drain hose. somethins the pump has a rubber flap that will become lodged in the outlet port. this will cause dirty water to be left in the machine because of a slow drain. start by looking at the volume of water coming into garbage disposal where drain hose hooks up.

My dishwasher does not sound correct (lack of spraying action sound) and this last time when I opened the door the soap had not disolved and the dishes where still dirty. I have taken apart the bottom arm before for a cleaning but it was only a couple of weeks ago. Could it clog up again so fast even when the type of dishes remain the same? Did I put it back together wrong? Maytag EQ Plus

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

My LG LDF7810ST dishwasher does not spray water from the middle or upper spray arms, therefore the dishes don't wash properly. Even when I ask for a top load only, the bottom spray arm is the only one moving (which I would expect that it shouldn't move at all since I've requested a top load only) I checked the spray arms as best I can to make sure that they're not clogged.

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

My dishwasher did not clean well. I replaced the seal on the bottom spray arm. there is a wobble now. the nut does not seem to screw down tightly. there is nothing wrong with the nut, it simply does not reach. I don't know if the lower arm is supposed to wobble, or if the nut should screw down tight. I can't seem to find a picture anywhere so I can visualize exactly how the spray are fits together.

Hi, I have an LG LDS4821 dishwasher and it appears to stop working properly. The dishes don't seem to be cleaned at all. It seems like the spray arms are not spraying the dishes as the dishes are still dry/dirty after a normal wash cycle. I did notice that the detergent was used during the wash, and a trail of white residue was at the bottom of the tub. I can hear water pumping into the dishwasher, but when I opened it during a wash cycle, there was a puddle of water at the bottom of the
