SOURCE: spray arm not attached

You may have stripped the threads on the spray arm or spray arm support. I believe the threads are reverse-threaded and since they are plastic, can easily be stripped if turned in the wrong direction. This has happened to me before. The solution is to replace the lower wash arm and spray arm support. You can find the parts at repairclinic.com. Just type in you model number and look for item numbers 830883 (spray arm support) and 9040141 (lower wash arm). You may also want to check out searspartsdirect.com as well. The parts will be located under the "Lower Washarm and Strainer Parts" section. The two sites do offer comparable pricing. Post back if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: GE POTSCRUBBER 1200 DISHWASHER

I have a Ge Potscrubber 1200. Fairly new I guess as I bought it with the house that I purchased 1 1/2 years ago. Sometimes it drains and sometimes it does not. Today there was two inches of water! About to remove the bottom panel. Sounds like the drain valve it blocked but not sure. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Need to clean out the upper spray arm and so would like to remove it (like I did the lower one) and clean it out. Help!

We have a PDW7800J01WW that I removed all the arms on recently.
There is a single hex-head screw that acts as the pivot at the center of the top most arm. Just remove this screw to remove the spray arm.
Be very gentle reinstalling it though as it is easy to over torque it and strip the plastic hub it screws into.

What is wrong with my dishwasher and how can I fix it?


Check water temp. Needs to be a minimum of 120 degrees. Check all the spray arm holes for food blockage. Look closely at the holes on the spray arm ends. Those holes act like jet engines to spin the arms.

How do you remove the sprayer arm from a GE potscrubber 600


Thought I had a problem with the spray arm or pump because water was not flowing enough to spray the upper rack. But it turned out it was a simple part missing: the "check valve" that is in the lower neck of the spray arm assembly. It's a $10 part. Part #WD1X5488 for GE Potscrubber 600.

GE potscrubber 1200. Fills only partway with water. Holding down float switch makes no difference. Is there another water level control somewhere?


Hi... No there is no another control ....The main control board time fills it!! So that means you have a bad valve ....If I were you I would get a new water valve

I have an older GE potscrubber 1000 and it looks like mold is collecting in the bottom. Dishes are not getting clean. Can I take apart the stuff on the bottom to clean it all? Why would this be happening?

The two rotating spayers, the one at the top and the one at the bottom that pops up, are not working. How can I fix this? This is a GE Potscrubber 800 Dishwasher.


First you need to see if you are getting enough water. Let it fill and then look at the center hub where the spray arm is. The water should be at least to the top of that hub. Also you can clean out the sump which is located in the right rear corner of the tub. Usually there is a cover over this which is easily removed with a few screws. Reach in with a gloved hand as there may be glass down there and clean it out. Also look at the spray arms themselves to see if the holes are clogged. You can usually clean these holes with a toothpick or similar object. If the water fill is too low, you may to need to clean or replace the water valve which is located behind the lower access panel usually on the left side.

The dishwasher tower arm is broke


if the spray arm assembly is still in one piece(what i mean buy this,is that the bottom of it has'nt snapped off in the pump)it should be a simple matter of plugging the arm back into the pump & tightening the clamp(this is located on the neck of the pump)you will need to pull the unit out to gain access to this(it's under the tub)if this is not the case the arm itself is under 20$,as the sleeve & clamp assembly is under 10$hope this is of some help.thanx for using fix-ya.please rate all replys
