Top water wand does not turn - Maytag Dishwashers


Answers :

Does the spray arm spin if you push it with a finger? If not, the plastic bearing is in trouble--pull down on the plastic pin under the lower center of the arm which should release the arm. Check the spray holes for plugging and any split seams between the two halves. Check the bearing area for any stray debris. If it doesn't spin because little water comes out of the bearing area, then the likely problem is either a plugged screen in the bottom area under the lower spray arm tower, or a plugged port on the bottom deck under the pump impeller parts. You will have to disassemble the entire lower tower assembly down to the deck to service this area--make notes as you remove parts so that it goes back together properly. Soak the large screen in hot water and white vinegar solution (50:50) to remove the white hard-water deposits. Check the lower spray arm for hole plugging and split seams as well. Our Maytag washer suffered the same problems and by changing detergent brands seem to have no further events. Hope this helps!

The bottom wand does have water and turn and does the top but it is not enough to turn it. If i remove the bottom wand and plug it off then the top will work properly. I have cleaned all screens and removed the plate to access the pump and all seems fine. Any Thoughts

Frigidaire dishwasher (Electrolux FDB750RCB0) does not move water through the hose to the upper wash/spray bar. The lower wash/spray bar has pressure enough to turn. With the dish washer out from under the counter I can see the water rise very slowly up the translucent hose. If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.

Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the brea

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (Model #: du800cwdb5) and need help going about the repairs myself. When the dishwasher is turned on, the spray arm at the bottom does not spin, nor does it spray any water and the spray tower produces water but, rather than spraying, the water just kind of bubbles out of the top of the tower. The tower does also does not extend up as it supposed to.

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?
