The middle arm does not spin. I have taken it off and nothing seems to be blocking the holes. This dishwasher is about three years old.

My GE quiet power 3 dishwasher has 3 arms that clean, one of them wont spin. How do I fix it?


take it off and see if the small holes in it are blocked as this will stop it turning, if not then could be a wash motor or the tiny synchro motor that diverts water to different spray arms

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.

Dishwasher lower spray arm falls off


The arms on a dishwasher spin with water pressure remove your arm and thouroughly clean and flush through , also check for wear on the arm bushes to see if there is excessive wear , the washers may need to be changed. Check the supply hole to the top arm to make sure it is not blocked.

Dishes on upper rack are not being cleaned. Seems like upper sprayer is not working properly.


Hi

Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. 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 youl'll need a Torx driver 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.

The middle arm on my Evolution dishwasher isn't spinning - the top and bottom one seem fine. Glasses especially on top shelf aren't getting clean at all (obviously!). Any suggestions?


Check if the holes are blocke dwith dirt the arms spin by newtons law that every action has a reaction (like a rocket) if the holes are blocked it wont spin as there is no force.

Top arm in dishwasher will NOT spin!


When you say the top arm does not spin, remember that the LG model x811 family has the Vario feature that alternates between routing the pumped water to the bottom arm and then the top arms alternately. So anytime the dishwasher is washing and rinsing, either the lower or upper arms will be spinning.

If the problem is not above, then the motor that drives the check valve may have failed (or the check valve is obstructed inside.)

Hope that helps. Please post back here with what you find, OK?

Upper rack is not cleaning. Greasy dishes on top seem that dishes are not being washed. Seems the upper water turning dispenser is not working, Bottom rack seems ok. I guess I only have half a dish washer...


Check the upper arm for free spinning, then remove the arm and check that the seam between the upper and lower halves has not split somewhere. Also check all the small holes for debris plugging. Run the machine in wash cycle for a little while with the upper arm off--that should flush out anything blocking the pipe up to the arm. If still nothing from the upper arm, tear down the lower arm assembly down to the deck while noting position of all parts removed. Clean the big screen at the bottom in white vinegar and hot water. Inspect the holes in the bottom for anything blocking them.

Middle wash arm doesn't turn on quiet power 1 ge dishwasher


The last two holes (the ones wich give the spin to the arm) are blocked. Remove the arm and try to unblock with a thootpick and by running water into the arm.

Good luck

Maytag MBDF550Aww upper spray arm doesn't spin.


Cleaning the filter was the right thing to try.
Since you don't see cracks/breaks on the spray arm and it appears that it is spinning freely, I doubt that replacing the spray arm will fix your problem.
If your dishwasher is several years old, your problem is likely a failing pump motor, but before you swap that out, check that the impeller is not damaged. Good Luck!
