Maytag MDB3700AWE bottom wash arm does not move Freely by hand

\015 Is the bottom wash arm supose to move freely. It move about 6 inches and then sticks, Both arms were clogged and I seemed to have fixed with Vinegar\015

Answers :

Yes, the wash arm should spin freely. Recommend that you remove the arms and search for what is stopping it.\015\012
\015\012In addition to hard water, the ultra-cheap dishwasher powder really does/can leave calcium-like deposits behind. Use brand name powder for 30 days and you will see a difference. Never use gel or tablets in any dishwasher. \015\012
\015\012Adding a whole-house water softener would eliminate 90 % of your problem. The other 10% will be taken care of by not buying ultra generic powder.
Dish washer does not drain. Checked for food being stuck anywhere. removed wash arm and plastic housing and checked for any type of blockage. Dishwasher hardly used.

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 maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.

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

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS2 dishwasher does not spray water thru the wash arms nor do they seem to turn.

The unit fills, cycles and pumps out in an apparent normal way. While on this site a while back I was advised to clean the unit and referred to a downloadable repair manual that was, in fact, not

Noisey maytag We have a maytag quiet series 300 with the 3 racks. Just recently we have been hearing alot of noise from our dishwasher while it is in the washing and rinsing mode. We have checked the arms to make sure they are moving but doesn't seem to be a problem. Thought maybe there is a liquid that we could pour into the washer to run through it's cycle? Of course we know nothing about the inter works of a dishwasher.
