Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher
On my Frigidaire Model # RDB510LCS0 built in the top wand does not spin and spray water when the dish washer is running so thing are not getting very clean. The wand seems to spin free by hand. Thanks for any help you can give.
You may have a water volume problem.
The water fill sequence on most washers is timed. Insufficient water at the bottom of the washer will cause the pump to cavitate.
Ensure water is filling to just under the heating element.
You can fix this by isolating the water and electricity then remove the fill solenoid. Inside the solenoid is a top hat filter screen. This screen captures sedement.
Once the sedement was removed on my washer the wands turned
My machine also had a check valve on the bottom near the back of the machine that was blocked.The valve needs to work freely in order for the pump to build pressure. The check valve can be removed from the top by turning the assembly counter clock wise.

Hey friend, that's a great question!
From the information you have provided the wand fell of the top of your Frigidaire dishwasher and you want to reattach it. Normally, the arm screws in. If your arm will not attach properly it could be damaged or the piece it screws into could be damaged. I would check over to make sure there are no cracks or damage done to the arm. Best of luck! -Matt

Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.
under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.
Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.
