3rd level spray arm has falln off

When i open the door of my dishwasher i saw that, one half of the spray arm had fallen off its top matting part, and was laying in the dish bin.

Been trying to press it back into its other half, but having difficulty in doing so, do i have to somehow, remove the top piece in order to press the two pieces together again ?

I had the same problem a couple of months ago, apparently this is a common problem, I went to the website for my dishwasher and located the part number, lo and behold there was a store in town that had the replacement part for $11.00. I unscrewed the old one and screwed the new one in place and it has worked beautifully ever since.

Tablet keeps coming out of the dispenser on my hotpoint fdl 570 dishwasher on all cycles and falls on to the floor, result is that the crockery isn't always clean on the top tray. Machine is still...


Hi Jeanette,

Maybe I misunderstood your question, but the tablet is supposed to come out of the dispenser and fall into the bottom of the dishwasher. It needs to fall into the hot water in the bottom of the washer to dissolve. The dispenser releases the tablet at different points in the cycle depending on which wash cycle is selected. On a shorter cycle it will be released soon after starting. On longer cycles, there is usually a rinse first, so the tablet will be released a little later. There would only be a problem if the tablet wasn't being released, or wasn't dissolving completely.

There are a number of reasons for poor cleaning on the top rack. The most common are the upper spray-arm not spinning, incorrect stacking or overloading. If the upper spray-arm isn't spinning, there may be caused by a blockage in the spray-arm or the water delivery system, but, as the dishwasher is new and it's not happening every time, it's possible that the dishwasher isn't levelled correctly. The spray-arms aren't motorised, they use water pressure to spin, but they wont spin if they aren't balanced, i.e. the dishwasher isn't level.

You can check whether the spray arm/s are spinning by pointing them front-to-back, or left-to-right (so you can remember the position) and allow the dishwasher to run for a few minutes. Then open the door and check the position of the spray arms. They should continue to rotate slowly for a short while after opening the door, but if they're in the same place and static, they're not spinning. I'd suggest repeating this a couple of times to eliminate the possibility of them having stopped in the exact same place you left them.

If the spray arms are spinning, test the dishwasher with only a small load in the top rack. If the top rack comes out clean with a small load, you may be overloading it or stacking it incorrectly some of the time. There should be a correct stacking guide in your user manual.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, check whether the arms are spinning then post back.

Regards,
BElectric

Top arm does not seem to be going around when diswasher is running. Top shelf articles are not getting clean. Black scummy material gets stuck in the top arm jet.


HI- If you can remove the spray arm, usually they screw or pull off, then put it under the faucet and start picking out all the stuff out of the jets. The best tool i've found for this is a large safety pin, bend a little hook on the end of it with a pair of needle-nosed pliers. It takes a long time to get them all clean (sometimes an hour) but keep at it until you can run water through the center hole and there are no more obstructions. Do this with all the spray arms if possible. The black stuff may be from the bottom of the door. With to door open take a rag and clean under the door and around the frame; I've seen a lot of the gook build-up there. Clean the filter as well if possible. The other thing to check is the water level in the dishwasher. Start a rinse cycle and after it starts washing open the door and the water level should be up near the heating element. If it is too low then the dishwasher will no be able to build-up enough pressure to force the water through all the spray arms. If the level is low you'll probably need to have someone out to replace the inlet valve. And most importantly ALWAYS rinse your dishes no matter what anyone tells you :) Hope this helps.

Why kenmore 665 leaks under door


This is common if the wrong detergent was used or some regular sudsing soap like hand dish washing soap was accidentally used. Clear the suds if there by adding a small amount of cooking oil to the soapy water then wash for a bit and cancel drain. Repeat if needed.

If this is not the problem look for something blocking the spray arms from turning, if they spray in one spot only they can splash water out the front.

Check the unit for level, if it is tilted forward it could be spilling while washing.

Look for cracks in the spray arms where too much water sprays from one place.

Make sure the middle spray arm has not fallen off. If it continues try moving the rack to the higher or lower position and see if this helps

Top rack not cleaning properly, not sure if top spay arm is working ?


Ensure that the spray arm is movable. Inspect the spray holes in the top spray arm. If clogged, clean the openings. If no clog, position the spray arm in a certain position (e.g.: arms facing front and back). Then activate the dishwasher for a minute or so and open the door to determine if the spray arm has moved. If not, there may be an issue with the water feeding to the spray arm (typically via the water pump, etc.).

sound like a low water level and or pressure issue. Start machine on normal cycle after filling open door and ck water level. should be up toJUST below heater assy.. assumiong htats good set hte wash arms to a set positon so you can watch for rotation. close the door adn after a few secs open rapidly and look for middle arm to be spinning, even the top 3rd row arm if present, should be spinning spinning . if not its possible that the motor/sumo assy is blocked w/ foriegn debris. remove the lower spray arm (hold the nut and spin arm)then remove 4 or 5 torx 15 screws. probly pretty glogged under there. if not id look into replacing motor sump assy/seals worn and not throwing water where it should go

Dishwasher


  This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time.  It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles.  If water comes out arms but arms won't turn,  check all holes in arms.  It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn.   If arms spin freely by hand,  it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. 
  Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.
