MOD. # GSD3400G00BB SER.# VG703554B Our GE Nautilus dishwasher upper spray arm is not turning. We disassembled it and checked for clogs & cleaned it. We also cleaned bottom filter. The lower spray arm is working fine. Any suggestions on what the problem may be?

Make sure the spray arm is actually rotating and the jets aren't clogged. You should be able to hear the arm rotating when the dishwasher is operating.
Otherwise, perhaps the pump is plugged or not working and the water isn't "jetting"

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.

Some spray arms out there are reverse threaded, however the one that you are dealing with should be regular threads. Should be an opening at the very bottom of the spray arm where you can stick a screwdriver through and use both hands(one on each end of screwdriver) and carefully loosen it. Make sure you get the new one on as tight as you can by hand, then check to make sure its tight by using the screwdriver again. With the screwdriver through the hole, and one hand on each end of it, just apply pressure clockwise, but you do not have to force it. Hand tight plus an ever so slight turn with the screwdriver should do it. Don't forget that anytime you are replacing the spray arm, you must always check once the new one is in place that you do not have a leak underneath the dishwasher. Also remove all water before you start replacing the spray arm to prevent water from leaking once you break the seal when loosening the spray arm.

We have a PDW7800J01WW that I removed all the arms on recently.
There is a single hex-head screw that acts as the pivot at the center of the top most arm. Just remove this screw to remove the spray arm.
Be very gentle reinstalling it though as it is easy to over torque it and strip the plastic hub it screws into.
