You may have something lodged in the pump that is causing it to rattle a bit.. Depending on the model, you may need to remove or disable power, then gain access to the pump by removing the toekick panel from the front.. You may also be able to zero in on the specific cause of that rattle by removing that toekick and cysling the dishwasher while listening for the source of that rattle.. A flashlight may help spot that source.. Hope that at least gets you headed in the right direction... Re-post if you still have an issue..
Regards,
Rick

My customer is having issues with the unit not cleaning food from dishes.


You must be able to hear if the water is being sprayed with force onto the plates. Did you check that the wash arm and rinse arms rotate? I have seen them stick and not rotate. Did you remove the arms to check for blocked jets. You would be surprised at what can get stuck in them, grey lint in particular, plus seeds and pips.

what is the Make (LG?) and Model.

My Frigidaire dishwasher upper sprayer arm is not rotating. Can't figure out why?????


Over time, dishwasher spray arms can become clogged with minor debris or hard water buildup that can prevent the arm from turning properly. An easy suggestion is to apply rinse aid to the junction between the spray arm and the mount to help remove it. Try this tip first to see if it resolves the issue. - Best of luck!

The dishwasher has three arms in it. The top and bottom arm do not rotate. The middle arm rotates fine. The arms will move when manually munipulated but do not spill while the dishwasher is on. There was a...


sounds like maybe some rinsing salt was spilled when the salt reservoir was filled the first time (or broken glass, this always used to be an issue in catering) and got pumped through, lodging in the gap between the arm and it's mounting. this can roughen the two meeting faces of plastic and cause them to jam up.
remove the arms and examine the state of the plastic, also look for granules/particles of glass. if it was salt it will be long gone...

Try rotating the spray arms by hand. It should rotate freely. If possible clean the arm rotating place by removing them.

Arms rotate by by pump pressure only. finally check the water pump also.

Wash Arms not spinning --Dishes not clean


Without the model number of your Maytag number, I can not determine if when you order a wash pump motor you also get the impeller.
Sounds like you are on the right path to getting your dishwasher to wash dishes again.
Oh, while you have the dishwasher open, check that the heating element has not failed using a Multimeter.

Good Luck!

I had this same problem. I think its the upper spray arm vibrating during wash cycle. To verify; prevent the upper arm from rotating by putting a long spatula through the top rack or zip tie the arm so it don't rotate. If the noise goes away you found your problem.
