The spray bar has a ring at its base - its between the spray bar and the floor of the dishwasher. Its notched so its very easy to grip... turn it counter-clockwise. It is probably on there pretty tight but it will come loose. I just turn the spraybar upside down and run water through the hole in the base... each of the holes on the spray bar should be checked to see if there is any debris poking out- use tweezers or something small enough to fish the debris out of the little holes. If you really wanna clean it thoroughly.... see the screw at the base underneath? unscrew it but make sure you remember the sequence of the parts so you can put it back together!

I also suggest you remove the mesh filter at the very back of the dishwasher floor and clean that. Take a flathead screwdriver (or table knife) and lift up the screen at the left side - you'll see a spot where its notched. Once you get that lifted a bit, you'll notice the right side is still attached... slightly turn the screen counter-clockwise (or toward you) until it pops out. If you've never cleaned that before - be prepared for the YUCK you're gonna find!!! eeewww!

Have fun and good luck!

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info. You will love the results!

Timer dial not advancing; will run at any point, but not move.


Most likely your timer motor is bad. Some models just the motor can be replaced and some you have to replace the whole timer. If you want to try to fix yourself let me know.

Dishwasher washed aparently dishes looked clean, did not drain water and detergent looks mostly un used still dripping down from door. now it does'nt do anything? Checked breaker everything looks good...


reset the programme to start another and does it drain? if not there may be a blockage/pump fault. if it stopped halfway through a wash the wash motor may be blocked/siezed. if it is doing nothing there may be a broken wire at the base of the door on the inside. tone. plz reply when you have tried various stages.
