Question about Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher
The bottom washer arm stops turning and is very stiff when turned manually. We've taken it apart and cleaned out the inside, this works but it is happening all the time. If we don't wash our dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. We never used to have to do this. Is there a part (food grinding/clearing) that we need to replace? Thanks for any help you can give!
Hi Karen P The bottom arm ( well all arms really)is rotated by the water pressure created by the main pump. The bottom arm should spin freely when rotated by hand. If not, then the bush (or plastic bearing) may be worn or sticking. These parts are fairly inexpensive (at worst a new bottom arm will be required). Contact your local Maytag spares supplier and ask for a Bush repair kit for the bottom arm of your model. Regards
