Blocked Rotors I often get little pieces of rice in my rotor arms and am wondering whether my filter may have a screen missing. At the bottom end of the removable tubular filter screen there is no mesh disc, and I was wondering whether there should be one there. If so how do I get one? Cheers Jim

You said, I often get little pieces of rice in my rotor arms and am wondering whether my filter may have a screen missing. At the bottom end of the removable tubular filter screen there is no mesh disc, and I was wondering whether there should be one there. If so how do I get one?

Is this your complete model number off the sticker or tag inside your diswasher?
Model # EDW5505EPS

I found no filter listed for this model
EDW5505EPS shown here on your fiya post

I need make and model and how old it is.
I can look at the repair manual and diagram of parts and solve your problem!
I am waiting your response!

Thanks for your answer. I am wondering though. If my car was shuddering prior to my replacing the pads and rotors and the shuddering occured only when applying the brakes and usually happened when I braked...


Take a look at all the rotors now since you have replaced them. If you notice any unusal wear on one or more rotors, then i would say either the rotor is defective or the brake caliper is at fault. Even with new rotors it does not mean that they are perfect. They may be out of round or they was cut wrong. The problem would even get worse with a caliper piston trying to stick from time to time. Take a little time and inspect each roter inside and out for any kind of unusal wear. Hope this will help you.

Reassembly instructions


That little screen that lies at the bottom of the bucket needs to be snapped out and the washer replaced. You have to unscrew the bottom, carefully remove the spring loaded lever, ( don't loose the spring) After fishing the lost rubber washer out of the hole, I used a screw driver or other similar item to pop the screen out. ( use care not to poke a hole in screen.) Next replace lever and spring and push the Star ended piece through the bottom and THEN fasten the washer. Replace all excess pieces and it should be fixed provided the washer isn't badly worn. This is the only way I know how to fix it after countless different web pages and searches.

Arms don't seem to be spinning


chances are there are either dishes that are too high or utensils dropping down in the way. Adjust the height of the racks to accommodate your large dinner plates.. also spin them by hand and see if the spin easily.. if not could be several problems.. also clean the filters in the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove the arms and check for blocked jets.. I found rice in my jets. Rice should be rinsed off the plates first... many people have rice issues.

Need instructions to remove rear rotors.seem to be stuck or theres something im missing.2003 ford sportrac


Remove the wheels. Remove the two retaining bolts that hold the pads in place. Slide the pads off the rotors by lifting up and outward on the bracket from the bottom. Sometimes they can be a little stubborn. The reason for this is usually there is a slight ridge on the outer edge of the rotor that they need to slide over because the rotor needs to be turned now.

The dishes no longer get clean even though the water is getting through....are there filters I need to clean or could the soap dispenser be a problem....please help


there are filers in the inside bottom of the machinbe which should be taken out and cleaned regularly.
problem may be that the spray arms are not rotating. open the door when in cycle and check each arm rotates(you will get a bit of water out)
if they are not, the problem is probably debris in the arm so take them out and clean (this is quite tiresome to do and the usual culprits are rice and sweetcorn)
the arms only rotate by water sqirting out of angled jets at the end of the arm and if these are blocked then arm doesn't turn
