Ld-1416T I have an LG LD-1416T dishwasher and the lower spray arm does not turn. The top arm turns and the top rack is washed well. I pulled everyting out and cleaned all the filters (which weren't that dirty) but still no luck. I could only get so much stuff out to clean before it looked like to go any further, I would need to gain access through the bottom. Are there more filters in the motor area which might need cleaning? I read that it could be the vario motor. Can I test this? and if s

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

Dishwasher Problem... Hey, I'm sorry I can't seem to find this information anywhere else. I'm having a similar problem with my dishwasher (also a kenmore quiet guard) and I wanted to try to clean the filter. I'm not sure how to remove the lower arm of the dishwasher. There is a kind of plastic-screw in the middle of the lower arm, is that what holds it on? I'm afraid to try twisting it because I don't want to break it. How did you get it off of yours? I hope I'm not bothering you! Thank you, Je

My dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean, so i started taking the lower end apart to clean, got to a gray wheel looking object with a screw in the top which was recessed and still the wheel looking object will not come off, it will spin but will not come off, I need to finish taking it off because I dropped a screw down in the bottom area where the water settles.


If there is still standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher, remove it with a wet vac then look for the missing screw. It might be in the vac.\015\012\015\012If no luck, try using a good small stick magnet to retrieve the screw. The ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a whirpool Quiet Partner III, and the top layer of glasses is not getting clean.

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.

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?
