Top spray nozel not moving water on my kenmore dishwasher

Posted by on

  • NormanRay Dec 02, 2008

    Your description was very helpful. However, the removed four screws and the one screw that appears to hold the chopper cove. But I was unable to remove the cover. I tried prying it from the side and top but it appears very solid there. I was able to remove tooth picks and bag ties with tweezers by going between the grey slots The part I'm talking about is the one where the light is shining on. I would be a lot easier if I could get that cover off.

    Any suggestions

Pump is more than likely clogged

in the dishwasher you will see you lower spray arm. take it off. now going up the back is the supply tube. you need to pop it off of thed top then the back and turn it clockwise to get it off the motor. after you do that you will see 4 torx screws. take all 4 out and you will be able to remove the fine filter. thats the normally grey piece with all the slots. after you remove the filter you will see two more torx screws. remove them they are for 2 seperate pieces one is the foreigh food seperator and the other is the chopper cover. remove both of them and clean the whole thing out. as yiou are puytting it back together. let me know if you get stuck

Great solution, it helped us a lot. Dishes look as clean as the day we installed the machine. I'd add to the advice: to remove the lower spray arm, you need to turn the center screw so that it becomes "buried" into the lower spray arm mechanism. We thought we had to unscrew and remove the middle plastic screw, and nearly stripped the plastic screw thread in the process. The middle screw is attached and is supposed to stay put. Everything else lifts off around it.

Why kenmore 665 leaks under door


This is common if the wrong detergent was used or some regular sudsing soap like hand dish washing soap was accidentally used. Clear the suds if there by adding a small amount of cooking oil to the soapy water then wash for a bit and cancel drain. Repeat if needed.

If this is not the problem look for something blocking the spray arms from turning, if they spray in one spot only they can splash water out the front.

Check the unit for level, if it is tilted forward it could be spilling while washing.

Look for cracks in the spray arms where too much water sprays from one place.

Make sure the middle spray arm has not fallen off. If it continues try moving the rack to the higher or lower position and see if this helps

Top rack not cleaning properly, not sure if top spay arm is working ?


Ensure that the spray arm is movable. Inspect the spray holes in the top spray arm. If clogged, clean the openings. If no clog, position the spray arm in a certain position (e.g.: arms facing front and back). Then activate the dishwasher for a minute or so and open the door to determine if the spray arm has moved. If not, there may be an issue with the water feeding to the spray arm (typically via the water pump, etc.).

Top spray arm in dishwasher will not spray


poor water pressure due to a clogged flowplate assy if the flowplate assy is not clogged with gook and hard water then you may need a new motor, a weak motor may not push the water well enough to get up to the top
first check entire flow are impeller etc

Top spray arm does not rotate, is mechanically


try checking the water holes in the arm, as when they spray out the arm turns. If they are blocked in any way it does not turn, try using a needle to check they are clear.

Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning


Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

The top wash arm does not move on my Kenmore Dishwasher model #66515894100. How can I fix this??


Not familiar with this specific model, but I had a similar problem where the water jet slots in the dishwasher's top spray arm were blocked by food debris. The filters were nylon and had started to disintegrate, and when water was recirculated debris was pumped round & blocked the jets. Suggest check your filters are ok/seating properly & then check the jets are not clogged. My spray arm came off easily to enable me to clean it out.
