Re: spray tower came off the filter module

The tower should just go through the lower rack from underneath and then twist in to place.

Are you talking about the tower attached to the lower rack?

The wash tower doesn't come up during the wash cycle, so the dishes on top are still dirty

Hello. I need the make/model to help you accurately. However, if the washer has the tower that has center sections which rise when water is pumped, there might very well be debris clogging the main pump and preventing it from getting adequate water. A lot of those units have a spray arm assembly that can be removed by turning a round collar with a 2-3 inch "handle" sticking out--it looks like a "measuring cup". If your washer has this, remove this filter assembly and clean out any food/debris beneath and inside it. Get your user manual--it will tell you how to do this. The segmented tower depends on adequate water pressure to make it expand and spray--if you hear the main pump going and the tower is not rising, the pump is starving for water--hence the blockage theory. If you are unsure about doing any of this, call for service.--definitely provide the model number here so I can determine more accurate help for you! I hope I helped you and THANKS!

Indesit di620 dishwasher not spraying water from arms

Hi, you may want to try looking at all the holes in the spray arms. If you see anything blocking a hole, use the tweezers and remove the stuff.
Remove the bottom spray arm and check for items in the water delivery hole.Check the lower spray tower that is connected to the bottom rack. Make sure all rotating parts rotate properly. Look underneath to make sure nothing is stuck in the tower. Remove any stuff stuck that is preventing rotation or clogging the tower.

Heavy film left on dishes. when rinse only frunction is used in empty dishwasher with no soap, the door and interior are still not clean. soap scum remains.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Most of the time when you start having dirty dishes post wash there is either an internal blocked screen under the lower wash arm tower or a problem with the drain. The drain problem shows up mostly inside the Air-Gap cap or at the garbage disposal / sink port connection. Pull the cap / cover off of the Air-Gap and then NOTE the installed position of the inner cap. Unscrew the cap nut and lift the cap off of the Air-Gap assembly. Food particles block the drain inside the cap. You should see a blockage as soon as you lift the cap or the particulate falls away as you lift the cap. Look into the Air-Gap with a flash light and clear any debris. Re-install all Air-Gap parts after cleaning. Make sure to pull the hose off of the garbage disposal port and clean the port.

Add water via cycle fill and then test the drain cycle. The dishwasher should be empty in less than 90 seconds. After 90 seconds interrupt the drain cycle. There should NOT be standing water in the dishwasher sump. If you have standing water in the sump after 90 seconds you will have to remove the lower wash arm and tower to clean the screen or drain holes in the tower. (depending on modeL) Another thing to pay attention to is exactly HOW the lower wash arm is installed on the tower. Some of the 2 part lower wash arms can be a nightmare to re-assemble.
When in doubt take pictures first.... (Lesson learned the hard way too many times when a 30 minute job goes in to the 2nd hour on my time!) Just make sure you do NOT remove any motor pump mounting hardware where it mates to the tub base. Even loosening a motor pump bolt or screw can cause a leak after your done.

While the lower wash arm is removed make sure that you inspect and clean the inside of the wash arm. Often food particles can block the water spray holes in the wash arm.

IF you have a direct / no Air-Gap sink connection then pull off the hose at the sink connection and clear the connection hole of any debris.

One last thing to look for is clogged upper spray arm water holes. Just inspect for signs of blockage. Only remove it if you note food particulate in the holes or under the wash tower base.

I am speaking from many many years of in home appliance repair experience. The steps above should stop the dirty post wash dishes. If you still have the same issues please respond with an EXACT Make and Model Number so I can look at the mechanisms of your dishwasher before responding again.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kenmore DW model 15999 Lower Spray Tower Came off

Yes, I was able to get it fixed.
The spray tower actually fits in the rack (I had thought it fit in the top of the lower spray arm - wrong!)

If you were to look at the spray tower itself, it has 2 little clip like plastic protrusions that with a little twist will clip onto the lower rack!

Push the lower rack in and you can see where the center would be, (right over the middle of the lower spray arm ).

Now pull out the rack and take the spray tower and slip it under the rack up thru the bottom in the position you noted was the center (from above).

Now with the spray tower in place, slide the rack back inside the dishwsher and you will see that the tower will be sitting directly over the top of the exact middle of the lower spray arm.

She47c0 bosch dishwasher won't stop the rinse cycle. the dry or sanitize signal does not iluminate. cleaned all arm nozzles,filter system. let it run with rinse agent and dishwasher salt. Need help! no...

You're hosed.  This is likely a bad control board module that can run you in excess of $200.  Even if you're within Warranty, Bosch will gouge you for labor, as that is NOT covered by warranty.  Top that with abysmal customer service and you're in for a world of hurt.  Sorry, but it's time for a new dishwasher. :(

Broken nozzle and upper spray arm

Thanks for the help. Like the other guy said the "ninga star" thing unscrews and using the plastic part inside I just pop the spray arm back on. Screw it back and it works again.

Whirlpool Spray Tower

I got the same problem and spent a couple of days trying to figure it out. The solution is extremely simple - you just snap the tower to the bottom tray. You need to lift the tray, insert the tower through the middle cell of the tray, and just snap it on it. That's it - no bolts, no connectors, nothing.

Need to remove wash module

You should be able to hold the spray arm and unscrew the center section to remove the entire assembly. Be aware of any washers or other parts that need to be re-installed when putting it back on.
