Typically there is a rubber boot that "joins" up to a water pipe in the rear of the unit when you slide the top rack back into the washer. IS the boot missing or misaligned perhaps?

More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.

Remove filter that is in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack. Screws will need to be removed to open the area up. Look for blockages and clean filter.
Reassemble and test. If problems remain, it is probably a failing pump motor and will require a service call.

SOURCE: MY KITCHENAID DISH WASHER TOP SHELF IS NOT CLEANING AT ALL .

There may be something plugging up the arm that sprays over the dishes. And of course, I'm sure you know not to place items like bowls, pots, etc that will block the flow of water from the bottom sprays.

Although the bottom jets do most of the working cleaning the top items, the spray from above is vital. Take the stem pipe leadin from the top to the bottom off and separate the spray arms carefully. If you can, look throgh each end to make sure no deposits are in there.

Another way is to blow compressed air from the center stem down in the water supply unit. If food particles are there you'll see them.

SOURCE: How do I clean the water jets in the dish washer?

If you have the patience and time, you can use a toothpick to unclog all those little holes.

Most likely the clogging is a result of a combination of slightly hard water and food particles, etc.

I've found that you can use some readily available dishwasher cleaning solutions to help clean it out. You run an empty machine through a complete cycle with the solution (available at most big box and appliance stores, etc.) and it will help disolve the gunk in the sprayer arms, as well as help remove any stains on the top, sides, and bottom of the tub.

I've also used white vinegar added to the wash cycle, once the DW is full of water (I add in 2 cups of white vinegar to the wash water) without any dishwashing detergent, and is seems to helps disolve any deposits in places I can't get to by hand

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Remove the spray arms and check the discharge jets. They are most likely clogged with food particles. Clear the jets and flush out the arms and re-install.

You need to clean the water jets (the sharp hypodermic needle-like jets). Use a straightened paper clip to clean (ream) out the two jets...one in removable plastic bottom and one in top. That will fix the problem.

The problem is likely to be that the jets in the rotor arm are blocked.

To check this, remove the arm (it is easy to do, as it is intended for the user to do this) and clean out all the holes. Try running water from you tap through the holes (backward flow) to remove anything that is too large to pass through the jets.

1985 yamaha maxim 700, Runs good through first half of throttle but when you try to get past that it just boggs down. Carbs have been cleaned. Spark plugs are jet black after a quick ride? Any help is...


Hello, from your description, it sounds like some of the jets of your carburetors are in the wrong places. Your bike has four carburetors, and each one of them has a main fuel jet and an idle fuel jet inside the bowl. The main jet goes in the very middle of the bowl and is the one that screws into the needle jet. This main jet has a relatively large hole through the middle. The pilot jet goes off to the side of, and screws right into the metal of the carburetor body. This jet has a very small hole through the middle -- so small that it may be hard to see through it.

These two jets look similar at a glance, and they have identical threads which makes it easy to get them in the wrong place. You mention that your carburetors have been cleaned, so there is a good chance that whoever cleaned them accidentally switched these jets in some or all of your carburetors.

If these jets are switched you will notice the following symptoms:
  1. Your bike will start very easily with little or no choke even when it has not been run for a while.
  2. Your spark plug electrodes will be very dark black after even a little running.
  3. It will feel like you have little power from the middle of the throttle all the way to wide open throttle (WOT).
  4. If you run like this for a while you will start to get backfiring, and the bike will start to run on three and then two cylinders, and perhaps eventually not at all.
But don't worry, fixing this problem is easy. It will be especially easy if you are the one who switched the jets in the first place. You just have to take your carburetor rack off of the bike, and remove the four bowls from the bottom. Look at the main and pilot jets in each of the four carburetors. The main jet should have a biiger hole and will have a tiny stamped number that should be around 120 or 130 on the top. The idle jet should have a small hole and a tiny stamped number around 15 or 20 in the top. Be sure that the jets are in the right places, and put your carburetors back together. It is also a good idea to get new spark plugs after you correct the problems, or thoroughly clean your old ones as carbon buildup on the spark plugs may cause a weak spark.

In the attached picture the main jet is toward the bottom, and the idle jet is on the top.

Water coming out of adjustable air vent behind wall of tub


one or more of the jets are turned off. i would suspect someone is plugging the jets off which causes water to go backwards in the system and the water goes out the air controls. solution: check the jets to make sure the jet faces are turned on and/or tell someone to quit plugging off the jets when they are in the tub.

Not dispersing water all I need is a manual.


I had the same prob. If you have water/soap solution at the upholstery handle, and no water/soap at the front jets, then the jets are clogged. remove the water tank, and you'll see the 2 jets (mine are red) at the front of the machine. Carefully release thw jets by squeezing the 2 tabs on top and lift out. Remove the hose that goes to the jet and clean out the jet (I used a toothpick) and rinse well. I also flushed out the system (hoses) by leaving off the jets and replacing the tanks (water and soap) I filled the soap tank with water too. Then I turned on the machine and let it run for a few minutes (I taped open the lever on the handle) to make it easy on me. Then replace the jets where you took them out, and all should be fine now. I suggest that when your finished using you machine to do your carpets, rinse out the lines with water in both tanks, to prevent soap from drying in the hoses.

Kenmore dishwasher, water not going through the jets


when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)

Neff dishwasher


if the arm is rotating freely when you give it a push by hand, then the problem is blockage in the jets in the arm - the arm only rotates with water coming out of angled jets at the end. take arm out, spray water in centre hole and whatever is blocking the jets should become visible. prize out with a paperclip or similiar
