Upper arm not working

I have a whirlpool dishwasher GU1500XTLQ1 the upper arm is not moving cup and bowls just as when first put in. The upper rack seems to be going in ok into the port. I flushed out the upper rack {arm } but still not working. Is there a power pump that pumps water to the upper arm? Or can it be clogged?

I had similar problem. the problem was due to having not enough water pressure in the line to the upper srapy arm. Did the following:

1. removed debris from sump assembly;
2. removed wash motor and clean clogged separation screen; and
3. sealed with Teflon tape manifold and probe manifold of the upper sray arm.

If you google for 'whirlpool 8178022' you should be able to get KD-12 repair manual.

Goof luck.

How to load a dishwasher


Hello Lona Harrington, here is how the manual for my fridgearie dishwasher tells me and how I load it .
1. Upper Rack is for smaller items. Cups, small bowls,sippy cups, plastic bowls. all face down.2. Lower Rack is for larger items. Plates pots and pans. The plates should be upright. pots and pans face down.3. flatware basket. This is ware I disagree with the book manual. The manual says to put the tines of the fork facing upright and the same for the knives. I have young children and they are great helpers, but I don't want them hurt so I put all the sharp points down.Manuals are available on line free Hope this helpsJoe Connollysealstonetops@gmail.com

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2300XTL83; type 577-0 leaving residue on dishes; not cleaning all dishes; upper rack cups and glasses not clean... i have sanitized inside of dishwasher; keep the rinse agent...


this is a game like cat and mouse where you have to open and close the door of the dishwasher in order to assure that the arm is moving and water is coming out of the door notice the postion when you first open the door shut the door open the door maybe a second later has the arm moved at all. this is a diagram of how the upper wash arm is assembled http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fW0503073-00010.png click this link and if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping people in similar situations in the future Thanks agian Rick

Top shelf dishes are not washed


possibly low water pressure...

racks might be in backwards if it's an older model with wheels on shelf system... rubber bumpers should face out...

could be a blockage in the upper sprayer arm... or the upper arm had come off and was remounted in a position that doesn't line up with the jet of water from below...

could be bad loading technique... sounds simple enough but you should never put large bowls or pots that lay horizontally on the lower rack because it really screws up the cleaning effectiveness. Large items should always go on the top rack or be washed by hand if they don't fit on the top rack.

Very low pressure getting to spray arms


I removed the lower spray arm, and then the filter. I found that there was a lot of buildup under the filter area. I scraped the buildup off. I found that it was restricting the input of water flow to the pump

Top rack in Kenmore ultrawash not being cleaned


Check to make sure the upper wash arm is not plugged with debris. All Plates on the bottom rack and bowls on the top. Position the arm at 12 o'clock and check at the end of the cycle to see if it has moved positions.

Upper rack dishes not cleaning well


Yes, run an empty load with 1/4 cup vinegar. It sounds like there is mineral build up in the arm. Try to take the arm apart that supplies water to the top rack of the dishwasher. You can soak this in vinegar water once removed.
