Question about Dishwashers
The top arm in my dishwasher does not seem to be spinning during wash. Items on the bottom rack are clean, but not the top. I have removed the spray arm and cleaned it, but no help. The tube feeding the arm is not clogged either, as it also supplies the "rain" at the top of the tub, which is working. Help! I have by-passed the lach to keep the dishwasher running while door is open. There is water coming out the bottom spray bar (but not enough for it to spin) there is no water coming out the top spray bar. Can you help!

sewnice, you might have to dig a little deeper to correct the problem. As long as you can spin the spray arm with your hand and it's not split it should be ok. Your chopper screen might be plugged. You will have to remove the lower spray arm and filter cover. These are torq screws. The accumulator assy. turns to the right to unlock and will lift off. It will take some pressue to snap it off the rear fill tube. Now you will be looking down at the cover that protects the chopper and screen. There is one torq screw holding it down. Remove the screw and lift it off. See if the screen is clogged. If it is, it will prevent the pump from sending water to the upper spray arm in force. Catriver..post back
