SOURCE: spray arm does not move

Before you do anything else, just check that you haven't put the upper spray arm on upside down. Having made the mistake myself, I can vouch for how easy it is to get wrong on some models. I think this is one of those machines where the upper spray arm rides between a couple of teflon washers which act both as seals and as bearings. These wear out eventually, with two effects. One is that you lose pressure at the holes in the spray arm which are supposed to drive the arm round, and the other is increased resistance to turning. Have a look at the condition of the washers; if in doubt, replace them. I don't think this is one of those dishwashers where the upper arm is fed through a telescoping pipe running from the upper basket to a nozzle in the cabinet roof - but in case the system has filed this problem against the wrong model number, I'll just mention that these telescoping arrangements need to be kept clean, otherwise the pipe won't close up to and seal against the nozzle, and again you'll lose pressure. If you've got one, check it moves freely. A. A.

SOURCE: The upper spray arm came off. How to I put it back on?

I realize this problem was in March of 2008 but if in the case someone else needs the solution. The Frigidaire website doesn't list this in there troubleshooting list either.

I had the same problem and let the upper spray arm off for a couple of months. My glasses were not getting cleaned as well so I was rewashing everything by hand. What's the point of that if I have a dishwasher.

On the inner roof of the dishwasher there is a round piece that you hook the upper spray arm to. Well it's a pain to try to just snap it on. Unscrew it by hand, get the little white plastic piece so the teeth are pointing out of the hole and snap on it on that way. One tooth at a time and it should go back on. It will be wobbly. Works like new I am so happy !

From now on be careful what you place on the top rack, if the item is too big it will cause it to snap off again. I know I will :)

Thank god I didn't get a repair man in here for something as minimal as that.

SOURCE: dishwasher lower spray arm falls off

These parts can be replaced easily and reasosnably cheaply for example the top spray arm is about £20.00p. But you need the back water feed tube as well as the lower spray arm which should come as one package. (depending on model i'm going by bosch). You shouldn't have to pay more than £30.00p + p&p. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

Dishwasher lower spray arm falls off


The arms on a dishwasher spin with water pressure remove your arm and thouroughly clean and flush through , also check for wear on the arm bushes to see if there is excessive wear , the washers may need to be changed. Check the supply hole to the top arm to make sure it is not blocked.

I've bought a drive belt for a Hotpoint 9342W Dryer but I can't work out how to fit it can you help


http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Belt-Diagrams?red=Dryer-Repair-Help#DiagramL
here is a diagram on how the belt is fitted.
Move the idler arm forward to allow room for the belt and thread the new belt around the idler arm pulley and over the motor pulley. When you have it in place, slowly release the idler arm pulley to place the tension back on the belt.
After this, turn the drum around slowly by hand to make sure that the belt is in the right place, and is situated to the right side all of the way around (no twists in the belt). If the belt falls off during this, you'll need to try again. If not, you're good to go.
I hope this was helpful. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further assistance. Good for you for fixing it by yourself.

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

Water is not going throught he top spray arm


Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

It is leaving soap on the dishes. It is loaded properly and upon checking it while running, the arms aren't spraying water.

Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

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.)

Hi,
If it is the type with push -fit prongs, these can wear to the point that they do come off completely.
If you can identify which part is worn, you only need order that as a replacement.
You should be able to replace this yourself without a service tech.
If you cannot find a replacement online - try LG directly.
