Middle spray arm of GE Triton XL Dishwasher is not spinning

The lower and upper arm spin, but not the middle one. The O-ring on the tube going into the middle spray was missing so I replaced it but it didn't help

    Try cleaning the jet openings on the underside of the middle arm. They cause the middle spray spar to spin.

SOURCE: small plastic top and mid spray arm do not turn, bottom does

decrete, you want to get down to the chopper and screen. If the screen is plugged up with gunk there won't be enough pressure to reach the top spray arms. Check out the posted pics. Remove the lower spray arm. Rotate the rear feed arm to the right until it unsnaps from the tube going up the back. See the 4 torq screws holding the filter on. Remove them. Lift the filter up. Now you will see the chopper inlet cover. 1 torq screw holding it in. Lift it up and there's the chopper and screen. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: middle arm of dishwasher not spinning

I'm the one that reported the same problem in November as "Guest". I fixed mine finally. I removed the middle arm again and noticed that the holes that spray a jet ot water causing the arm to turn aren't the ones on top. On the bottom of the arm there's a small hole at each end. I looked and one of the holes had a small piece of crud in it. I had to use the tip of an ice pick to dislodge it back into the arm. I then ran water into the arm several times hoping to get the item completely removed. I never did see anything come out but I then ran water through the arm holding it so the water could run out one end. The piece didn't show up in the hole again so I tried washing it to the other end. It still didn't show up so I guess it must have washed out the first time. It's been 3 or 4 weeks now and the arm is still functioning perfectly. Hard to believe that one little piece of trash can cause so much irritation. Good luck on this being the problem for others.

SOURCE: middle wash arm doesn't turn on quiet power 1 ge dishwasher

This arm turns due to water pressure in a small hose attached in the back of the dish chamber. Look inside when the dishwasher is empty and you will most likely see that the hose feeding the center arm is disconnected. Just push it back on and you will be up and running.

SOURCE: upper spray arm on dishwasher does not move

you most likely have gunk inside the arm or holes not allowing the water to spray out and turn the arm. Otherwise, the arm bearing may be stuck and will need a gentle push to loosen up.

The last two holes (the ones wich give the spin to the arm) are blocked. Remove the arm and try to unblock with a thootpick and by running water into the arm.

Good luck

Spray Arm Doesn't Move on my GSD5630d01ww!


When you say the dishwasher is running do you mean that the pump is operating?  If the pump is not pumping water the arm will not spin.  Is there a bottom arm and is it spinning?  If it spins then the pump is working. The upper arm will not spin if it is blocked by hitting a large dish or utensil.  There should be some sort of tube or tower (some are collapsible) in the center of the lower rack that shoots water into the bottom of the spin arm above.   Is it missing, blocked or clogged?

Makes a funny noise


I had the same problem with my Triton XL Model # - GSD6660G02SS Dishwasher. I tried adding water, zip tied each wash arm (one at a time) and had no positive result. Then I noticed a notch on what is called the docking cone. It supplies water to the middle wash arm. When the upper rack is pulled out you can see the cone at the back of the washer. Anyway I put a rubber O ring on this notch and the noise stopped. I can't tell from the parts list if the O ring is supposed to be there or not. Maybe a GE repair tech can confirm this. Hope it works for you as it did for me.

Middle arm stopped spinning


you may be exactly right. I always start with something simple. spin the spray arm to make sure it goes all the way around with out touching anything. next is the hard partyou would have to take the motor apart and any filters you see and clean out all the debris.

GE Triton arms don't spin


Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
How old is the machine?

Other wise you need hands on service! And a new machine will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You!

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.

GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning


I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.
