Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Danby dishwasher model 1802W-1. I ordered a new upper rack because the wheel broke. The old basket was accidentally thrown out before I could remove the upper spray assembly. Is there a kit replace? What parts would I need to replace?

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

I have a maytag MDB600AWW dishwasher. the top spray arm doesn't turn. it wouldn't even turn if i removed the to middle trays. I took the accumulator out and cleaned it. the fine mesh filters were clogged. unfortunately, birthday candles found their way into the machine sometime back. i cleared as much as i could. when i put it back together, the top arm would spin only when i had the 2 middle arms disconnected.

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 Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

I have a Kenmore, Stock 15649, approximately 14 - 15 yrs old that worked fine until the past few days. The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

The disk washer doesn't drain at the end of the rinse cycle. There is a humming sound but no water is forced through the hose to the sink/garbabe disposal. At the end of the wash, there is a large amount of dirty water in the bottom of the washer. I removed the spray arms, the spray arm holder and the screen and then removed the water, and found a couple of pieces of plastic. But I don't see how I can remove additional parts from the washer bottom. What could the problem be? Is there a fi

Dishwasher only faintly comes on. The detergent compartment opened but, there is a great deal of detergent residue on the inside of the door. Additionally, I removed the "mesh" drain grates from the base of the dishwasher and they are covered with chemical buildup. I was able to remove a good deal of chemical buildup. When the dishwasher would come on before, you could here the cycle start up, you could here the water, etc., now it is very faint, and you can barely hear any sound.

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out.

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

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.

Hi I have a Nemo Dishwasher and the top spray arm is not turning. The bottom one is going fine and there is certainly plenty of water getting into the washer as I opened the door with the washer going and it flood me.

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v
