No water delivered,or "spinning" of upper spray arm.Serviced @n year ago & worked very briefly. Spray arms & filter cleaned. Using a hose as water source to test.....spray arm isn't blocked. The problem appears to be water isn't being delivered to upper spray arms. What could cause this & how can I correct? Thanks for your time & response. Sincerely, Lee Ballard

Answers :

\015\012\015\012Thanks for\015\012using FixYa. If the dishwasher is not filling then it is water-inlet valve issue. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of\015\012the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main\015\012water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires\015\012attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound\015\012that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet\015\012valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. Please do accept the\015\012solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

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

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

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?

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

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.

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

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?

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

Upper spray arm is not turning round even though water is coming through. We have checked the internal system for blockages and the machine is filling / draining as normal. When a full programme is run, many of the dishes, particularly on the top shelf, are dirty and many have hardly been touched by water. Could a pump or other part be faulty?

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.
