Hello, I bought a kenmore diswasher model # 587-15103800 over a year ago and I have never cleaned the inside. I see a small basket that attaches to the hose arm and if I lift it it seems fine with nio food particles. I need to know if there is a better way to clean for any food cloging as recently the diswashed makes a louder noise while I run the normal cycle. pls advise. thanks Joseph

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. Is there a diagram on line? Dishwasher model: whisper quiet #KUDM25SHW1 bought in 1999

We have a Frigidaire dishwasher model #FDB634RF bought new. It was used for a not very long period of time but developed problems due to well water with high lime content. now with good cleaning products available it is ready for use again. The problem is the top spray arm that refuses to rotate. I have taken the arm out and thoroughly cleaned it of deposits checked the supply line from the pump and checked the sump for any obstruction. The arm turns freely by hand but water just pours out the

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

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

Both spray arms of my DU943PWKQ0 do not turn or spray. The motor is moving and the it drains without problem. During the wash and rinse cycle I can hear the sound of water, however it doesn't clean at all and the sprays arms stay where they were. It seems the motor only creates no spray, but wave. I powered cycled the dishwasher, the problem remains the same. Anyone know what's wrong with it? Thanks James

I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

The top spray arm of my Frigidare model FBD4315LFC0 Aqua Surge dishwasher fell off. Their appears to be a missing part. I've been searching online for a schematic and can't find one thorough enough to use. The parts I have are: 1. The top sprayer arm (the one in the top of the tub) 2. The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4.

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 frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a loose part inside the retainer in the ceiling that moves back into the retainer when I try to put the spray arm back on. How do I fix this and how do I get the top basket out to work on it?


The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the ... Frigidaire PLD4555RFC Dishwasher

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers
