Top blade not turning

I have water coming out of top blade but insufficient pressure to turn blade ... consequently top dishes remain unclean. Blade apertures are not blocked neither is strainer in base. Plenty of pressure to bottom blade so assume that pump is ok. Driving me potty!

Does it turn freely??

like if you give it a swind does it take about 6 revolutions then slows and stops?

if it does unscrew it (silver screw) and check the holes and washers and screws etc... as they can break perish.. if you dont know what to look for here i a tip!!


go snooping at any respectable white goods store, find the same model that you have and pretend to examin it lol! look at its top arm and see if it mooves as freely as yours!!!!!!

and for same parts etc.. anyhow the point is that if it moves freely then when the pump goes on the water should force it to spin smoothly!


however. get your self some dishwasher cleaner!

for the dishwasher! not the dishes! it is like a drain-o for dishes! it unclogs and un clags the pipes etc...


good luck!

I have an LG LDF7932ST Dishwasher and the dishes are not cleaning, especially on the top Rack. I did some troubleshooting and here are the results:

The unit has what is called a 3-way valve and is operated by a solenoid, depending on the age of the unit LG can let you know the part number for you to order this valve.

Dewalt 331k jig saw blade falls out

Blade catch wears out too fast
I loved this tool when it was working but after not that much use the teeth that hold the blade under pressure no longer hold hard enough to prevent the blade from coming out. The mechanism that holds the blade has no catch hole, it uses a few serated teeth to pressure hold the blade in place. Unfortunately, once the pressure starts to lessen you can't tighten it down...

Changing blade scroll saw

Loosen the knob at the rear of the top arm - turn it counterclockwise several turns. The blade should now be loose. Push the "blade end" of the top arm down slightly with one hand while you unhook the top of the blade. Lower the blade a little to unhook it from the bottom arm.

Replace the blade. Hook it onto the lower arm first - you can look underneath to see what you're doing. The blade's teeth should point DOWNWARD - it's easy to accidentally install it the wrong way, so check that now. Again push down slightly on the end of the upper arm, then hook the top of the blade into the upper arm's blade holder. It should how stay in place, but loosely.

Now return to that tensioning knob at the top rear. Tighten it slowly until the blade is BARELY tight, not loose. Tighten the knob 1/2-turn to one full turn tighter to tension the blade.

Water coming in dishes not getting cleaned enough.possibly not coming out of the sprayer and spin blade

Look inside the spin blade and see if there is food or paper inside of the spin blade exit holes blocking it from spraying and spinning. Also if the spin blade is not aligned with nozzle which sprays water into the blade it will not work. I have had both happen several times. Sometimes dishes or pans pushing against the spray nozzle will also miss align the spray jet so the water does not get into the spin blade. I have also had the spin blade be completely worn and would not spin creating the same problem you've had so I had to replace it. Hope this helps.

I have a craftsman jigsaw(scroll) that I got for Christmas last year. The blade comes out in the middle of my cut some time. Is there a problem with this type of jigsaw?? I have sanded the top of the...

Most of the time the cause for this is applying to much pressure on the blade as you are cutting. Remember, the blade does the cutting and you are guiding the jigsaw around the cut. This can strip the blade and wear the top of the mount. Adjust the way you cut and you should not have any problems.

It is an older model maching and it seems to be clogged and not cleaning the do you unclog it

It would be helpful to know exactly what machine you have, but the bottom line is, you need to access the screen at the bottom of the machine, where the water exits into the pump. Many units have a macerator blade in front of the screen that chops up large particles of food so that they will pass through the screen. The blade is attached to the same shaft as the pump, which both supplies the high pressure water to wash dishes and pumps out the dirty water at the end of the cycle, and if there are small hard particles, such as bits of bone, plastic or broken glass in there, they can jam the blade so that the pump does not pump properly. You will need to remove the dish racks whatever covers, etc., are on the bottom inside the machine to get at the screen and/or macerator.

My lid doesn't seem to fit properly. When I put the top on to cover the screen, it doesn't seem to fit together properly-- the bottom of the chute that you throw the fruit and veggies down butts right up...

Is this a new cover? There is an adjustment. On the bottom of the machine, dead center,
there is an adjustment screw with a locking nut. Unlock the nut and the turn the screw
counter clockwise, this will lower the motor shaft and consequently the blade. Once you
have clearance and install the cover, turn the screw clockwise until the blade contacts the
chute, back it off a half turn and lock her down. This will establish the correct gap between
the chute and blade. Also if your chute is ever chipped or scored by the blade because
of excessive vibration, you can file the chute level and readjust the gap.

It wont wash the top of my dishes


If he left the blade and filter off this will cause the the spray arms to get plugged up with residue. Check the holes in the spray arms to make sure they are clear. The link below will show in detail how he took this apart and where you will find the screen and blade.

You should not have to pre wash your dishes, if everything is cleaned and working right in this machine all you should have to do is scrape and load.
