They do make a dishwasher cleaner that you can buy for about 5.00 and it cleans your dishwasher and also helps get rid of stains too!
This may solve you sprayer problem easier!

Why are the items on bottom rack not being cleaned properly


If is clean dishes in the upper basket, I conclude that the pump produces enough pressure what means that the lower spray arm for some reason does not rotate and because that washing result is bad. Before washing I would check the lower spray arm rotates freely and after that open the door during washing and check if the lower spray arm rotates. Sometimes, the holes in the spray arm clog and disable turning which leads to poor washing results in the lower basket.

Dishes are always dirty, maybe even dirtier after running dishwasher. has hot water, lower arm moves.


Check the outlet holes on both spray arms for clogs. If necessary, remove the spray arms, clean out the holes and empty out any debris inside the spray arms. Verify that the upper arm is turning also.

If the machine does not drain completely at the end of the cycle, the pump drain outlet is partially blocked and you are retaining dirty water for the next load.

You may have a chemistry problem - inferior soap, empty rinse agent dispenser, or extremely hard water.

Improper arrangement of the dishes can prevent some from being washed. Make sure no dish blocks the spray to another.

Lower spray arm partially blocked with vegetable (lettuce Leaf ) matter. How do I release this arm for cleaning?


Hi,

If it's a Bosch as listed above, the lower spray arm simply pulls off. Grip the spray arm near the centre, give it a sharp tug. To refit, insert the shaft into the hole, push down on the centre and make sure it clicks home.

To clean inside the spray arm, you can also separate the arm from the shaft to give better access. There are 4 plastic clips, holding the arm to the shaft (I've ringed one in the image below). Insert a blunt table knife or flat bladed screwdriver behind each clip and gently lever it off. It's easiest to get one side partly off first , then do the other side. Be careful with these - on older washers the plastic can be quite brittle and the clips break more easily.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance - or you don't have a Bosch dishwasher - please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric.

Top spray arms dont work.


Most likely you have debris blocking the holes in the spray arms. The spray arms can be removed and cleaned out in your sink. (blocked holes in the lower spray arm arm almost impossible to clean out)

My top rack is not getting clean, it appears spray arm is not dispersing water, can it get clogged?


Yes it can get plugged. Any debris pumped up to the arm can get lodged into the tiny holes. Also, sometimes the arm itself becomes split along the joint between the lower and upper half. Remove the arm to inspect, clean, and repair/replace the arm if split. I fixed our Maytag spray arm when it split, by drilling a series of small holes along the split parts and sewing the thing back together with fairly fine copper wire. Still working great after a number of years. The small spray holes can be poked clean with a heavy needle and the arm vacuumed out. If after all this it still won't spray properly, the intake screen at the bottom of the lower spray arm tower may need to be cleaned as well. Remove components starting with the spray arm and work your way down, noting placement and orientation of each piece. Remove the screen, and soak it in hot water, detergent and white vinegar for an hour or so. Check all holes in the deck for any food plugging. Reassemble in reverse order and check the lower spray arm for plugging as well. Hope some of this helps!

The sprayers don't work. It's getting water and


Check your spray arm holes for any food clogs buildups. You can clean holes with a toothpick. If there is lots of clogage inside the arms, you may have to remove and dismantle them to clean them. Check water valves to make sure they are fully open

Dishes not clean. Lower spray arm possibly not moving.


Remove the lower basket so you can access the lower arm.

Does it spin freely? If not, remove and clean the rotating point. Make sure the spray nozzles are not clogged and there as no chunks of stuff inside the spray arm.

I assume you are having spray issues, or a grinding noise. If odor is your issue, go to the bottom of the message.
For the dishwasher pictured above, Open the door. Remove the lower rack.
Push in the tabs holding the upper basket rail end caps and slide the caps up and out. Remove the upper rack. Clean the holes in the upper (or middle) spray arm.
Hold the lower spray arm still and rotote the thumb tab clockwise. Remove the lower spray arm. Clean the holes in the lower spray arm.
Use a small flat screwdriver to release the tabs holding the upper spray tube from the dishwasher inner wall and ceiling. Rotate the spray tube to the right and remove the tube.
Using a # 20 Torx bit, remove the (about 10) small screws holding in the top of the sump assembly. Remove the top section with the fingers all around it.
Using a # 15 Torx bit, remove the screw holding the round cover over the pump suction. Remove the cover (grab the tab sticking off the corner with a pliers and pull up.)
Anything stuck in the sump will now be visible. If the screen is completely clogged up, then the blade isn't wiping the screen clean. In this case, the screen should be replaced.
The screen is removable, but difficult to re-install. If you need to re-place it, put an open end wrench between the screen and the rotating blade to hold the spring compressed. Also, notice the screen isn't round. The flat edges fit only in the slots they came from.

If it's odor or white powder you want to clean out, use a dishwasher cleaning product such as Dishwasher Magic.

I tell every dishwasher customer: "You do not need to rinse your dishes before washing. But you do need to scrape them off."

Good luck!

Good luck!
