Having problems with your Siemens 24 in. SE25T250 Free-Standing Dishwasher ?

Bottom rotating arm doesnt spray water but top arm does

\015 Symptoms are dishes on top trya get washed but dishes on bottom tray dont and rotating arm is still thru wash and rinse cycle.Does anyone know if the Siemens dishwasher has two separate pumps (1 for top rotating arm and another for bottom)? I would suspect no, and therefore blockage in bottom feed. From a common sense view I cant see why there would be two separate pumps?I tried looking for an approved engineer but nothing!\015

I have a similar problem. water is not reaching the bottom spray arm. there. i have an underwater case for my digital camera, so i'm going to put a torch or 2 in some waterproof bags and remove the bottom spray arm and run the dishwasher to see if there's water coming out of the bottom pipe, if not, i need to try and see if there's a blockage in the system, or a dodgy valve, could be that the soldering's or the control panel's buggered.

The top and bottom spray arms were not rotating. We assumed there was a fault with the pump. We replaced the pump. The bottom arm now spins and sprays water but the top arm will spray water but does not spin.

The unit goes through its cycles but the top rack is not getting clean. The bottom spray wheel works, the middle and top spray arms are getting water but it seems not enough to make them rotate. The pump screens are clear and there seems to be enough water. Whats going on?

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

My dishwasher has stopped cleaning plates properly. It makes everything wet but at the end of the cycle the detergent block is half dissolved at the bottom.

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.

Top arm is not getting enough water to rotate. The bottom arm is working good. Could this be caused by hard water deposits in the tube leading up to the top water funnel?


Yes it could but more likely the jets in the upper arm are clogged ... also often on older machines the pump wears to the point of not providing enough force for both arms .. even more likely there is usually a plastic screen surrounding the pump in ... Dishwashers

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.

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

I can see water coming out of the holes when open during a cycle and I have made sure there are no obstruction for the arm or anything stuck in the arm feed line.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS2 dishwasher does not spray water thru the wash arms nor do they seem to turn. Additionally, one of the the bottom arms hits the "cap, internal rear feed" where it clips to "feed tube assembly" when rotated by hand. The spray arm assembly appears true on visual examination. 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
