SOURCE: Washer arm not working

If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.
Good Luck!

LDF7932ST LG dishwasher top and bottom arms not turning. Diagnostic test mode "power+spray+ rinse" does not work.


I put a new lower spray arm and very little water comes out of it. There is quite a bit of water that comes out of the middle and top. The top does not spin but has quite a bit of water and the middle spins really good.

The bottom spray arm on our LG dishwasher, Model LD-14AW3, will not spin. The diverter valve from top to bottom section does not operate, i cleaned it and the housing near the filter but still no go. any...


I have the same problem, well - similar. The diverter is moving for me, however it is moving to the wrong position. It seems to move between the upper arm and then blocking off, rather than upper arm and then lower arm.
Did you manage to find a solution?

The top two water water arms do not spin


These spray arm will only get water several times in the wash and rinse cycle. They do not turn at the same time the lower (bottom large spray arm under the bottom rack).
There is a chamber that diverts water either to the bottom sprayer or to the top sprayers, not to both at the same time.
If your top spray arms never get water, then there must be an issue with that chamber motor to divert the water. A new sump assembly that has all the new parts.
Good luck.

LG LDS5811 top rack not cleaning


I Have the same issue, it sounds like the arms try and start up 4 times then each time power back down, the top arm is not spinning at all. On the fifth time a I hear grinding and then the mid and lower arms spin, soap streaks down the door, nothing stuck in any of the arms, 16 months old, 750.00 out of pocket for junk!

Top arm in dishwasher will NOT spin!


When you say the top arm does not spin, remember that the LG model x811 family has the Vario feature that alternates between routing the pumped water to the bottom arm and then the top arms alternately. So anytime the dishwasher is washing and rinsing, either the lower or upper arms will be spinning.

If the problem is not above, then the motor that drives the check valve may have failed (or the check valve is obstructed inside.)

Hope that helps. Please post back here with what you find, OK?

LG LDF6920ST Bottom spray arm dose not work


The LG LDF6920 dishwasher has an innovative "Vario" motor/check valve. It switches between full power spray on the upper arms and the lower arm. So, if you are looking inside the dishwasher to see which arm is spinning, you just have not opened it when the lower arm is turning.
if the root problem is that your dishes are not getting clean with this water conserving DW, go out and buy a name brand detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade. And use less powder then you have been using.
Good Luck!

Top arm doesn't spin


It is important to know that the upscale LG diswashers alternate between washing the top and bottom rack. So it is normal for some arm to not be turning at certain times.
Also, if this dishwasher is set to half load, bottom only, the top arm will never turn.
