SOURCE: Top Arm not spinning on Whirlpool DU1145

It looks like there is not enough water pressure to spin the spray arms. Loss of pressure may be due to various things, like damaged seal, cracked tubes, clogged filters, screens etc.
I suggest you take a look at the technician repair sheet that should be stored inside the front panel at the bottom of the door. Remove that panel under the door with screw driver. Inside, attached to the panel, you should find a troubleshooting guide and solution for technician. But it is easy to follow. Look at the section under "poor wash" and follow its recommendation. I had exact same problem - not enough water pressure. In my case, the chopper screen was clogged and the chopper assemply was broken. I followed the repair instruction above to remove the chopper assembly, cleaned the chopper screen and the washer now is as good as new. I will need to replace the chopper when the part arrives.
Good Luck

SOURCE: GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning

I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.

SOURCE: top arm not spinning

only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher - top rack arm not spinning

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.

I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!

Dishes in top not clean- arm in top does not spin


Hello bue.... The top arm spins due to water pressure. pull your top drawer out and inspect the rubber tube that feeds water to the top arm. Usually they have a split in them so the water does not get to the arm to spin it. The fix is to replace that rubber tube. You will need the model number of your machine to order the correct part. I usually get my dishwasher parts from searspartsdirect.com

The top washer is not spinning


Look at the top spray arm and see if it moves freely. Inspect the middle part of the spray arm. Sometimes a tall dishes can prevent the arm from moving. Put the spray arm at 12 o'clock position and have a cup right side up in the dishwasher. Run a cycle. During the cycle the cup should be filled to the top with in 20sec and the spray arm should have moved from its position. If not then change out the spray arm and Delivery tube.

We have an older KitchenAid dishwasher (Model e) that cleans dishes on the lower rack just fine but not the ones on top. Anyone have any ideas why or fixes?


Be sure you are not blocking the spray arm for the top rack. If your dishwasher has a telescoping spray arm in the botton center that retracts when the dishwasher is off, be careful about covering it with the dishes

TOP SPIN ARM NOT SPINNING TO CLEAN TOP RACK OF MY KITCHEN AID DISHWASHER. IT IS ONLY 1 1/2 YEARS OLD AND MY TOP TACK IS SUDDENLY NOT CLEANING


Hi.

First ensure that the arm is not getting stuck, and check that the orifices are free.

When the top arm is not spinning you may need to replace pump and motor assembly. First it is good looking for blockage in pump hose.

If the appliance is less than two year old, then it may be covered by limited warranty. Call Kitchenaid at the number listed in the owners manual to verify your warranty status.

Regards.

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!

Upper rack dishes not cleaning well


Yes, run an empty load with 1/4 cup vinegar. It sounds like there is mineral build up in the arm. Try to take the arm apart that supplies water to the top rack of the dishwasher. You can soak this in vinegar water once removed.
