Frigidaire Dishwasher - Spray Arm Not Working

Frigidaire Dishwasher - Hot water is coming in but spray arm is not working. I have checked it for clogs and obstructions but still won't work. I have the same or similar problem. The washer turns on sounds like it is working but when the cycle is complete none of the dishes are clean and the soap is running down the front of the door. Is this an impeller problem or a pump problem. How can I test it.

Thanks,]
DL

This all may be due to an impeller problem in the pump housing under the lower washarm. If the impeller is damaged/bad the pump will not circulate water through the wash system correctly. On most Frigidaire dishwashers the lower washarm and top pump cover can be removed fairly easily to check it out.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishwasher - Spray Arm Not Working

When a dishwasher has been checked for obstructions in the sump area and the spray arms can spin easily (by hand) plus the spray arm holes are not blocked, you end up with either a broken impeller or a failing wash pump motor.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

Your water valve or spray arm could be the reason no water is getting to the top of your dishwasher. Remove the spray arm and clean it out with warm water. Also check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the spray arm from releasing water onto the dishes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Spray arms not working


Hi frustrated in Raleigh,
I understand that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, even after you have cleaned the screens and arms. What might be happening is you are not getting enough water pressure to the dishwasher.
The hot water line to your dishwasher must provide water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers are in operation.
Wait until water use is reduced before starting dishwasher.
If you are still noticing that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, I would have a local Authorized Technician come out to see what exactly is going on with the spray arms of your dishwasher.

-Best Regards-

Upper spray arm


Hello Alan - Will the spray arm rotate freely or is it damaged? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. The top spray arm typically starts to function when the unit is in rinse or wash cycle. If for some reason the top rack is not getting clean, there is a possibility that it is not working properly. The top spray arm is either blocked by pots/pans or not enough water pressure is being pump meaning that the flow of water is not making it to the upper spray arm. If you tap the delivery tube that feeds this nozzle and the water pressure jumps immediately, then the problem may lie with a faulty pump or impeller. Should all basic troubleshooting measures fail contact a certified technician to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

Dishes are not getting clean. Dishwasher does not take off the smallest speck of food. Hot water works. Cycles sound the same


There could be a couple of things that might be affecting the cleaning ability of your dishwasher.
First,there is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My children used to put large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, it could be that the upper or lower spray arms may have debris that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

My dishwasher is not working water is making to the dishwasher and is getting pumped out but it is not going through the jets


There's aspray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tubemounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directlybeneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack. If debris is blocking the holes inthe spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems.Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Upper spray arm on dishwasher does not move


you most likely have gunk inside the arm or holes not allowing the water to spray out and turn the arm. Otherwise, the arm bearing may be stuck and will need a gentle push to loosen up.
