SHU 4300 top arm nozzles getting clogged

For the past 2 weeks or so, the arm nozzles, especially the upper ones, have been getting clogged every time we run the dishwasher. I have been removing the particles and cleaning the filters after every run, as well as being careful not to load the machine with excessively dirty plates, but am surprised that it's continuing to happen.

Now I'm wondering if the problem might lie in the microfilter - is there a movable part in there that may have fallen out or broken and now causing food particles to come back up? Do they tend to need replacement after a couple of years? Our dishwasher is approximately 6 years old.

Dishes on top shelf not getting clean


Check your upper wash arm.... check the holes, especially the ones at the end of the arm. Are they possibly clogged with debris or hard water? This is the usual cause of dishes on the top rack not getting clean. The holes at the end of the wash arm are angled to eject the water at an angle to use the reaction to push the wash arm around. If those holes are clogged, then the arm won't rotate, and only those few dishes or glasses right under the arm will get clean, and the remaining 80% of the dishes on the upper rack won't get clean!

On my Kenmore model 665.13489K900, it does not clean well and appears to have a problem with getting or circulating water inside to all areas, especially the top shelf.


Check the center wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren't clogged or blocked. * Run empty cycle using vinegar and baking soda lime scale problem will resolve.

My soap doesn't dispense out of the dispenser of my Whirlpool ADP8540. Can someone assist?? I have checked the draws are in correctly and there are no obstructions. It goes through the whole cycle...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

There are several things you need to check.
1. The Upper and lower wash arms for internal debris. NOTE how they are installed... The lower wash arm it would be wise to take a picture first before removal. Take them off one at a time. Flush and clean them making sure there are no clogged spray jets.

2. While the lower wash arm is removed inspect arond the lower wash arm support for any clogged passages. Clean as necessary.

3. Use a flashlight and look around the lower wash arm support especially from the top and sides.
You may have to remove the support to clear any obstructions. Make sure to ONLY remove the support screws and not the pump motor screws.

4. The last thing to look for are things like a damaged sump housing or pump motor impeller.

5. Pause a cycle and check the water level. If the water level is too low due to a damaged float switch actuation arm this could also cause the symptom your dishwasher is presenting. It can cause the unit to cycle on with very little internal water. Time the fill cycle... and let me know how long it takes to fill and start.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Bosch SHU 8805 upper arm is getting no water.


replace the upper water arm conduit and wash arm hub as they leak under years of pressure and the o-rings leak water and then it can't hold pressure and supply the upper arm with full pressure water,also replace the center arm conduit if it has one as this will wear out too

Low pressure . arms don't rotate


Hello there:
first you will want to make sure that all of the filters are clean
next check to see that the water supply hose have not become clogged or kinked .
next look at the filter that is under the arm assembly you will have to remove the upper spray arms to get to the filter make sure that this is clean now look very closley at the spray arms especially the ends they have very tiny holes that can easily get clogged. a tooth pick or a medium sise needle works very good to remove any thing in these nozzles make sure you look at EVERY ONE of them ok
once they are all cleaned you should be all right
best regards michael

Our Bosch SHU 4300 dishwasher does not drain fully


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. A sticking impeller indicates that the pump may be failing, but you are welcome to try my guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Washer arm not working


If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.
Good Luck!

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.

Middle arm of dishwasher not spinning


I'm the one that reported the same problem in November as "Guest". I fixed mine finally. I removed the middle arm again and noticed that the holes that spray a jet ot water causing the arm to turn aren't the ones on top. On the bottom of the arm there's a small hole at each end. I looked and one of the holes had a small piece of crud in it. I had to use the tip of an ice pick to dislodge it back into the arm. I then ran water into the arm several times hoping to get the item completely removed. I never did see anything come out but I then ran water through the arm holding it so the water could run out one end. The piece didn't show up in the hole again so I tried washing it to the other end. It still didn't show up so I guess it must have washed out the first time. It's been 3 or 4 weeks now and the arm is still functioning perfectly. Hard to believe that one little piece of trash can cause so much irritation. Good luck on this being the problem for others.
