Why top arm is not rotating during wash in frigidaire/electrolux dishwasher


Check for clogged holes in the dishwasher arm. You might be able to use a strightened out paper-clip to unclog the holes, if they're not too bad. The other thing that would stop the wash arm from turning could be a build-up of calcium in the shaft or bearing of the wash arm. Remove the wash arm and clean it out manually. Then you will probably want to get and use a dishwasher cleaner, like Dishwasher Magic to clean out calcium you can't see or get to (easily).

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

Why are the items on bottom rack not being cleaned properly


If is clean dishes in the upper basket, I conclude that the pump produces enough pressure what means that the lower spray arm for some reason does not rotate and because that washing result is bad. Before washing I would check the lower spray arm rotates freely and after that open the door during washing and check if the lower spray arm rotates. Sometimes, the holes in the spray arm clog and disable turning which leads to poor washing results in the lower basket.

Dishwasher starts up and then stops after a while giving Error Code F5


check the wash pump is working, to do a test put top and bottom spray arms in a straight line so both are faceing the door and turn on if spray arms are still in same place then it might be the wash pump, if the arms don't move you need to test for power to wash pump and test wash pump

Kenomore ultra wash dishwasher will not clean dishes- water pump may be out? How do I perform self diagnostic test?


check and see if both wash arms are turning first.
does the lower arm turn but the top arm does not?
Another way to check to see if your upper wash arm is turning is to put a mug in the top rack upright. close the door and turn the dishwasher on if it fills the mug within 2 minutes you are getting proper curculation.
you press heated dry and high temp wash and toggle back and forth within 6-8 second. all the lights should light up and it will go into diagnostics.

Spray arm doesn't turn


Hi,

Probably blocked spray arms. Remove each spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results and the arms don't turn as well

Dishwasher has power and water but rinse arms are not working


Vicky,

I understand that your LDF8812 fills with water (and drains?) but is not cleaning and you are not hearing the unit wash. Are the dishes on either rack getting wet at all?
-Are you getting any error codes in the display?

On LG dishwashers, the upper and the lower arms never spin at the same time. Rather the vario check valve routes all water pressure either up or down.

The arms turn because the wash motor turns the pump (impeller) which drives the water to/through the wash arms. If the wash motor was faulty, you almost always get an error code. So the problem is probably caused by a blockage of the "plumbing" in the sump area beneath the lower wash arms. But first check all three wash arms to confirm that the holes are not blocked. (How cool is it that the light inside this model helps you do that?)

Next use a screw driver to remove the filter assembly in the sump area. There are 10 screws to remove, but first you need to firmly lift the lower spray arm directly up and out.

Inspect the entire sump area for debris. Watch out for broken glass! Look closely at the white area near the back for blockages at the check valve.

Please report back what you find and we will take the next step. OK?

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.
