Sounds like it has overflowed at some stage. Ensure the filter is cleared and then rock the dishwasher backwards. Any trapped water will drain out and the safety valve will reset. i had similar and this was what the indesit technician did.

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.

The soap does not seem to dissolve to clean the dishes and I do not seem to hear the water spraying during wash cycle

your rotator sprayers may be blocked or pump is broken,

remove rotator sprayers by gripping the stem and pulling or twisting out, check manual.

check that the holes are clear.

then try starting your machine with the sprayers out and see if you can hear the water.

if you dont hear anything the pump might be broken,

fistly check that the filter in bottom of machine is clear.

I hope this was useful.

When you say nothing happened.
If the machine doesn't run at all, check the cord and plug.
If the machine doesn't pick up paint, read the following:

There are 2 steel balls inside the sprayer.
The first one is in the pipe at the first joint > this ball keeps prime in the pump head.
The second ball is 5" higher, and it is opened and closed by the prime valve
These balls can rust and then the sprayer needs to be replaced
Always store sprayer filled with kerosene

The prime valve goes bad too
And the intake can be clogged with wasp nest or paint.

Let's say your prime valve is okay, and the pipe is not clogged.
Tap the pipe where the ball is located while the machine is running.
See if you can loosen the ball.
If you can't loosen it, take the pipe apart, but be careful because the ball has to fit perfectly to hold the high pressure of a paint sprayer.

If you can get the machine to prime, then tap the next ball to see if machine will fill the hose.

Have a Bissell Proheat2 will not spray water from the carpet power head but sprays from tools setting Does anyone know how to get water to spray or clean out water

I had this problem. It was small pieces of debris that got into the solution lines and clogged all the nozzles. There is a nozzle for the handheld attachments, one on the front of the machine for spraying spots and two nozzles underneath just behind the rotating brushes.

It was a royal pain disconnecting the clear rubber hoses inside the machine and blowing out the nozzles and the hoses with compressed air. If you are mechanically challenged I'd suggest you take the machine to a vacuum/steam cleaner repair facility.

I'm not sure how the debris got into the solution system, but it may have been when the dirty water tank was emptied some of the dirty water entered the internal, clean water bladder.

A note to Bissell engineers: This issue can be prevented if you simply add an easily accessable solution and/or water filter that the customers can remove, clean and reinstall. Just a suggestion.

Water does not spray out at high enough pressure. does water fill work on volume of water or timer. i think my fill valve may be partly blocked

I think you need to check your gaskets o rings that are where the water pipe comes in onto the sprayer (which is the part that rotates and sprays water ) somewhere thee lays your problem .Check for clogs also like a clogged pump suction as at the base of the dishwasher the water accumulates and it is sucked in .

Upper rack sprayers not working on LG ldf7811 dish washer

Check the pump out. Even though the Hose is and tubes are clear it does not necessarily mean that the pump is not pumping water to the top sprayer. One way you can do this is take off the upper spray tube and lay it in a glass or bowl and turn on your machine for a minute or so to get the water flowing if it flows then I would take off the spray assembly itself and make sure that there is no blockage on the bearing race

Instructions for using ortho tree sprayette

The Ortho Tree and Shrub Sprayette has a fixed mixing jet set to a 24:1 ratio. 5.3 ounces of spray concentrate in the jar will mix to produce 1 gallon of diluted spray. The jar has a capacity of 42.7 ounces, so you can spray up to 8 gallons with 1 filling. If you look at the side of the jar, you will see two filling scales. On the left is the diluted spray capacity, and on the right is the concentrate scale. So you will see 8 gallons opposite 32 ounces, for instance.

You must dilute concentrates to the 24:1 mixing concentration. So if your concentrate says 1 ounce/gallon, and you want to spray 6 gallons, put in 6 ounces and add water to the jar to the 32 ounce level.
