Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers

Open Question

None of the Frigidaire DW FGHD2433KF1 arms spin

I've read some of these solutions, which sound helpful. My less than 3-yr old DW worked beautifully until 2 months ago. After trying different detergents to no avail, I finally discovered yesterday that NONE of the arms are spinning. Considering this "coincidence," could it still be that all the holes are clogged? If so, can someone please instruct me how to remove the arms? I've made a cursory attempt to loosen what appear to be clips holding the middle arm in place, but they're pretty tight; and I'm afraid I might break something if I apply any more pressure. Many thanks!

SOURCE: GE Triton arms don't spin

Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
How old is the machine?

Other wise you need hands on service! And a new machine will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You!

SOURCE: middle spray arm not spraying

unlikely that 2 dishwashers would have the same fault but is of course possible
could it be to do with how you are loading? quite common is for a knife or similiar to stick down thro the rack and jam the arm

SOURCE: not enough water pressure to move upper arms or clean dishes

Recommend you pull the bottom spray arm straight up, then out of the DW.
Remove 9 phillips screws that hold the filter shroud down. Remove the filter and clean/rinse it out.
While the filter it out, grab a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area. Especilly in the area the has the check valve that rotates (Vario motor-driven) to feed the water pressure either to the lower and then the upper arms. Watch out for broken glass! Also, inspect the impeller to see if it is undamaged and spins easily.
Reassemble, then test out.
If problems remain, the the wash pump motor is probably the culprit. Do you get any error messages on the time display?
Good Luck!

Upper spray arm on my Kitchen Aid dishwasher (8573025) doesn't work.


Arm operates(turns) by water pressure. If it does not turn no water is going to the top spray arm. make sure the setting washer is on does not preclude the top spray arm from operating(read manual). If not check arm by spinning by hand to make sure it is free. If arm is free and it still does not turn when DW is running than there is a restriction in the tubing to the upper spray arm or the check ball or solenoid are not operating correctly.

Upper spray arm failure


Easy to solve!
(1) Remove the drawers to give yourself room to work
(a) bottom drawer just comes right out -- but you knew that
(b) Carefully unclip small plastic retainer caps at the ends of the metal "glides" for the top drawer. Then slide the caps out of the glides. Then remove the top drawer.
(2) Unscrew the "gear-like" plastic fitting into whose hole you were sticking your finger when you felt that small cylindrical ring.
(3) Now that you've got access to the ring, the solution is obvious -- use it to snap the upper arm back into the gear-like fitting. When you're done, the arm will rotate freely in the fitting.
(4) Put everything back together and enjoy the fact that you didn't have to pay some yobbo $75 to come to your hous and do this for you!

(HINT: When screwing the gear-like fitting back into place, use the old machinist's trick of pressing gently and screwing backwards until you feel a click. The threads will now be aligned for you to screw things together the right way. If you do not do this, you might experience frustration reattaching fitting -- since the piece it screws onto is spring loaded.)

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

I have a Frigidaire Ultra Quiet Plus dishwasher. The top spray arm isn't spinning during wash. The bottom spins fine and I can spin the top freely by hand. It appears there is not enough water pressure...


I may have the answer. I had what sounded to be the same problem. I found the dishes were dirty after they were cleaned, but I found there may have been a big pot lid blocking the upper arm. I decided to run the machine again, and after a bit opened the dishwasher after to make sure it was not a problem with the arm. Sure enough, the arm wasn't moving. However, I found out on the Frigidaire webpage that some models have an alternating spray cycle, where only one arm spins at any given time. After reading this I checked again, and it had moved by that time. I checked a few times more to confirm this. So it ended up it was an arm blockage after all. Hope this helped...good luck.

DISASTER! PLEASE HELP. WOKE UP THIS MORNING & DISHWASHER MELTED!!!


Amsanta, sounds like something got hung up on the heating element, stopped the lower spray arm and things started to melt. The lower spray arm, part number, 154414101 is easy to change out. There is also a lower spray arm support 154294101, don't know if you will need that. I believe on your model the lower spray arm just snaps on. There is a tab on the filter screen that will rotate to unlock and the filter screen will lift out. Now the lower spray arm support is accessable. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to get it fixed under warranty. Catriver.

Water not going through spray arms


1.does motor run? no. replace motor. 2.open door and leave the bottom rack inside dw.spin the spray arm underneath the bottom rack by hand. it should spin freely without binding. if it doesnt spin freely take out the bottom rack and try again. if it does spin freely then your bottom rack is laying on your sprayarm preventing it from rotating. 3.you could also not be getting enough water into your dw.
