Look for clogs in the spinning sprayer. Listen for the water pressure pump. If nothing is seen or heard. You either have a control panel problem or a pump problem.

Water comes out but spray arms don't turn and motor doesn't seem to be runing


Sounds like a bad pump/motor. It is also possible that something hard (like broken glass) got down into the pump impeller, stopping it from turning. Depending on the brand and model, this may be easy or hard to check and clean out.

How to repair or fix a Dishwasher if it doesn't wash well


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.
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.

How to remove windshield washer pump


sounds like the spray nozzles are clogged you can usually remove them and soak them in soapy water or spray water through it with a sprayer on the end of a hose. if that doesn't solve it then you may have a cracked line or the pump that pumps it out may be broken but usually is the nozzles are clogged.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Upper spray arm on my Kitchen Aid dishwasher (8573025) doesn't work.


Arm operates(turns) by water pressure. If it does not turn no water is going to the top spray arm. make sure the setting washer is on does not preclude the top spray arm from operating(read manual). If not check arm by spinning by hand to make sure it is free. If arm is free and it still does not turn when DW is running than there is a restriction in the tubing to the upper spray arm or the check ball or solenoid are not operating correctly.

I have a problem with Price Pfister ''Cadenza'' faucet , I observed .... after using side spray... when I open water ( lifting the handle ) for second or two the water doesn't have...


Yes I can tell you, there is a fitting inside the faucet its call a divertor. When you use the spray handle it clicks over and makes all the water that was going to the spout go to the spray handle.

If you did not have this jsut think how it would work with half the water going to rach side. I don;t know how old your fixture is but it may just have gotten some lime or and other drop of trash inside the faucet.

Turn the water on cold only open full, kinda rapid fire the trigger to make the water jump back and forth for about 3 mins. This may jar lose the junk and stop it from doing what it is doing. If that does not fix it the faucet needs service

best of luck

How do I find the pump on model #she44c06uc/48? Dishwasher wont pump water out?


Hello

When you say pump out water, do you mean the drain pump used to empty the hopper? Usually dishwashers have two pumps, one to empty it and one to supply water to the wash arms. If it drains but doesn't spray it sounds like spray supply pump is gone. Could be just a loose connection or it a dodgy contactor or relay, or the pump itself. Someone with a very basic knowledge of electricity and a multi meter could very easily diagnose this and you may be able to order the part.
