Re: sprinklers not turning

If no water out of spray arms there can be two causes spray arms completely blocked. take them out and clean. pour water into centre hole and make sure it comess out of all the jets. turn on with spray arms removed and open door to check water is being supplied from the pump. if no water coming out, you may have a faulty pump or pump capacitor.access the pump and see if it is warm. if so fault may be the capacitor - a cheap part

The lower spray arm on my ASKO 1805 dishwasher has stopped turning, the dishes are still getting washed, so fluid still goes through the sytem, and drains at the end, the heater works. When turning, t

If the arm spins easily by hand, but won't spin when operating, that points to poor water delivery...
1) check the strainer. Not just the holey one you can see, but there might well be a very fine mesh filter under it ~ if so, remove it to clean it (it can appear clean, but still be clogged with transparent cellulose fibres). Try running the machine empty without the strainer/filter fitted. You should hear a difference if the filter was causing the problem.
2) you might have a weak impeller. After a while the plastic impeller on some machines just wears away, leaving insufficient fins to move the water, this can be accelerated by e.g. broken glass stuck in the pump. Impellers can also slip on the motor shaft; the motor's spinning but the impeller doesn't. This means removing the machine, turning it over and removing the pump for inspection...

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB7130AWB started making a grinding noise tonight during drain cycle. We just had some work done on the sprinkler system and the water main to the house as well as the check...

Shut off water to the machine, remove the hoses at the machine and inspect & clean the mesh filters in the water inlets. If dirt did get into the line, it would be from the water main work, not the sprinkler work.
It doesn't hurt to clean the machine filters.
However, I would be surprised if that would cause the noise. I think the machine has a mechanical problem.

My dishes and glasses do not come out clean they appear to have some white residue on water softner is working I am using liquid dish washer detergent and jet dry......just feel the washer is not...

If your dishes or glassware appear with a white residue or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you?re using and adjusting your hot water heater?s water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.

Next, you?ll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic).

If the film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature.

Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn?t anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:

1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don?t use extra-hot settings such as ?Power Scrub,? and use the ?Energy Saver? dry cycle.

2) Adjust the detergent amount.

3) Don?t pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.

A common cause of poor washing results is improper loading?dishes that block or impede the spray arm(s) or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with good washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. A good first step is vary the amount of dishwasher detergent you're using and try switching brands.

Other possibilities: Your home?s water pressure may be too low, your water may be too hard, or the water temperature may not be hot enough.

In order for your dishwasher to fill to the appropriate level, water pressure should be from 20?120 pounds per square inch. If you suspect that your water pressure may be low, turn off all faucets or other users of water (such as washing machines and sprinklers) and then put a half-gallon jug under the kitchen faucet. Turn on the hot water full-blast. If the jug doesn?t fill within 14 seconds, your water pressure may be too low for proper dishwasher operation. Call your city water utility to discuss your options, or avoid drawing water elsewhere in the house or yard during dishwasher cycles.

The right amount of detergent to use depends on how large your load of dishes is and how hard your water is. Hardness is measured in grains of minerals?the more grains per gallon you have, the more detergent you?ll need. If your water has 12 grains or more of hardness, fill both dishwasher soap cups completely with detergent. If that doesn?t work, consider installing a water softener. (For more information, see the article Water Softener Systems.

To check water temperature, hold a meat thermometer under the hot water faucet for two minutes; if it doesn?t register a minimum of 140 degrees F., turn up the temperature dial on your hot water heater. (However, if you have a newer dishwasher that heats the water internally, it isn?t necessary to turn up your hot water heater.)

If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but suddenly your dishes aren?t clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles, listen to the spray arm(s) spinning inside during the wash cycle. If spinning poorly, wait for the machine to cool down, remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hubcap(s), lifting the arm(s) off, and then cleaning out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire.

Why does the diswasher not clean top rack of dirty dishes? It does not seem to be getting any water.

Check if the top sprinkler arm sprinkles any water. If it got some years the screw on which holds the arm might be worn out and that could, depending on the model, result in water only flowing straight down to the second arm. Or the sprinkler arm could be clogged, I would check it out anyhow.

How do you know if your dish is working property

1. water temp must be 120+
2. soap must not be old
3. Machine must work as designed

place a cup upright on the top rack, run a few min. it should have some water in it.

Usually the spray arms are not turning with that problem. They are designed to turn by water forced out the end of the arm, much like a lawn sprinkler works.If the end holes are clogged, it wont spin. The arms should spin freely.Then check to make sure that the water didn't drain out as fast as it came in. Some D/W have a valve that will get stuck open and the water drains out during the wash water, no wash..

Just bought home with Kenmore dishwasher. Know


Do you have the operating instructions for your dishwasher. If not, open the door and there should be a manufacturer's badge on the inside of the door somewhere. Find out what model machine you have. I can help you find a manual online.

A couple of general tips for your info.

  • Wipe or rinse excess food particles from dishes before you stack them in machine.
  • Stack neatly and spaced apart to give better wash results.
  • Make sure dishes and pot handles are clear of the sprinklers. Turn sprinklers by hand and make sure they dont hit against anything.
  • I prefer using dishwashing tablets as they are a measured amount. Best not to use too much soap or powder.
  • If you are using powder, use rinse aid along with it.
  • Dont put your crystals or good wine glasses in the dishwasher.
Hope this helps somewhat.
good luck.

Dishwasher not washing properly

Can you provide more information on symptoms: Does machine fill? Does water come out of the spray arms a) at all and b) in convincing quantities (part way through the cycle, switch off, open the door straight away and see what is happening inside). Do you get the same problem if you run the machine without any dishes in? Can the spray arms be turned freely by hand? Knowing the answers to these should help narrow the problem down. A.
