Broken Lower Sprayer

Hi, we got a used dishwasher that had major scale/deposit buildup. When I tried to remove the lower sprayer arm to get at the screen below, the tower part just snapped right off! Can this be epoxy'd (if I'm careful with placement of it)? Any suggestions on which epoxy? Or, will I have to replace w/new parts? I'm heading out to Lowe's soon, so please Help! if you can!!! Thanks, in advance, Brandy "I'm Just a Girl" Smith.

Unlikely that epoxy will provide a permanent repair. replace with new parts - should not be overly expensive

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

I have a GE GSD6960N10 dishwasher. Not cleaning --- The bottom sprayer is getting clogged with bits of stuff. I take it out and clean it (not easy to clean), gets clogged again soon. Wondering if...


Hi

Disassemble the lower spray arm and check the status of the water delivery hole. Lastly, check the spray tower, which consists of several rotating parts. Make sure no objects are stuck in the spray tower, then close up the dishwasher and try using it.
Remove the raised screen to the right at the sump to clean that out. The screen in the sump can get clogged up. Check the fourth diagram, part number 506 which I am talking about.
http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=gld5860&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

That is the parts breakdown you may have to pull the unit out to get to the sump .

It's easier to get to all the parts that can cause the problem .The real problem is the food still on the dishes when you wash .So once cleaned out don't add plates or bowls that have food still on them.it's the only way to stop that problem.

Check the 11th diagram for part number 329, it is flapper valve and it can be stuck by food particles.Try the heavy duty cleaner CLR pour a few cups in and let it go through a cycle.

I would like to clean off the calcium deposits that are in the dishwasher. How can I do this or what product should I use.


there are few things you can do to remove the calcium deposits.....

Change the detergent you use. Powdered dishwasher detergent is more efficient in removing grease and oil than gels. Decreasing the gunk left on surfaces may help slow lime scale buildup.


Put a quart of vinegar or lemon juice in the bottom of an empty dishwasher and run it up to the "dry" cycle once a month to keep up with accumulating scale. Extended exposure to mild acid and hot water dissolves most scale.


Clean circulator arms with vinegar or lemon juice and a vegetable brush or toothbrush. Let the acid sit on the scale before scrubbing. Use a needle or hat pin to pierce clogged holes, then rinse by running a cycle with vinegar.


Use plain salt or baking soda to scour surfaces with a sponge or rag. Rinse with boiling water or run a cycle with an empty dishwasher. Do not run the dry cycle.

    The top sprayer is not spraying any water and the middle sprayer has water except it does not have enough pressure of water to spin around the sprayers. What do I need to do to fix the problem


    All sprayed water comes from the pump located at the lower deck. Remove all parts from the lower spray assembly (note position and orientation of each part) down to the deck. There should be a large filter screen at the bottom that commonly becomes plugged with food and hard water deposits. Soak the screen in a mixture of hot water, white vinegar, and dish detergent for an hour or two until the deposits come free. Check around the pump area and the deck openings for any debris plugging. Reassemble in reverse order, but check all three spray arms for spray hole plugging or split seams. Hope this helps!

    Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


    Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

    Suggestion;

    Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

    DISHES ARE NOT COMING CLEAN BYPASSED THE DOOR LATCH TO WATCH CYCLES,LOOKS LIKE THERE IS NOT ENOUGH WATER PRESSURE TO ACTIVATE THE WATER TOWER AND ROTATING ARM?WATER PUMPS OUT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE THINGS...


    I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
    Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
    Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
    To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

    Check your spray arm holes for any food clogs buildups. You can clean holes with a toothpick. If there is lots of clogage inside the arms, you may have to remove and dismantle them to clean them. Check water valves to make sure they are fully open
