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.

I removed the lower spray arm and cleaned out a lot of stuff. I noticed when I screwed the sprayer arm back on medium tightness, then the arm does not move freely. Any ideas? thanks


I just looked up your kenmore dishwasher on repairclinic.com. They give free repair help that is model number specific. You may have bent the arm assembly or the retainer is still too tight. Could be it's simply worn. The replacement is about $32. Check out the self help on this site and enter your model number. Good luck.

My kenmore dishwasher is not cleaning


Hi, i had this sand residue just on the top shelf and found that the upper spray arm was not rotating around. (I opened the door a few times when it was washing to find the spray arm in exactly the same position). I had a quick look at the spray arm holes but did not notice any obstructions... However on closer inspection, I discovered a small hole pointing sideways at each end of the spray arm. The spray from these holes propel the spray arm to rotate. Both were blocked by a small ball of hair like substance. I had to use a needle to remove this and this solved my problem.

How do you remove the lower spray arm on a Kenmore Ultra Wash (665.17019.402)? I was told to hold on to the plastic screw and spin the arm counterclockwise to remove, but I've been spinning and...


Hi, In the center of the spray arm is a threaded piece of plastic/bolt.
Use pliers and turn that tab on the bolt. If it doesn't turn easy. Holt the bolt and try to turn the spray arm with you hand.
It will release the spray arm so you can remove it.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi I have a Kenmore model 13742k. The dishes in the upper tray are not getting cleaned. The upper spray arm is not circulating. I dissassembled the components from the base leading up to the spray arm...


The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable shutting off the power to the dishwasher, do so.
Good luck!

How do i remove cover on food chopper? kenmore 665 the problem is top shelf dishes not getting clean. looking to clean out bottom area,thanks


Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it.
Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier.
Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.

I have a kenmore 665 dishwasher where the spary arms do not spin.


  • First, check water level. Start machine, wait until the machine begins main wash. Open the door, the water level should be just below the heater element. If too low replace inlet valve.
  • If you can't hear the wash motor running or is just humming, the motor may be bad.
  • To check if the food chopper is blocked or broken;
  1. Remove lower spray arm by holding the arm and rotating the spray arm retainer.
  2. In the back of the tub, unclip or remove the screw from the upper spray arm supply tube.
  3. Rotate the lower spray arm support to the right while disconnecting the supply tube from it.
  4. Remove the four torx screws from the sump cover, remove assembly.
  5. There may be a primary filter in the left side of the sump, if so, remove the torx screw and the filter.
  6. On the right side there is the chopper assembly cover. Remove the torx screw and cover to expose the chopper.

Hope everything goes well for you,

Regards

Dishwasher spray arms don't spin & spray water


Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.

Need to remove wash module


You should be able to hold the spray arm and unscrew the center section to remove the entire assembly. Be aware of any washers or other parts that need to be re-installed when putting it back on.
