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!

Our Whirlpool dishwasher (mod. #DU1055XTVS0) turns on but it's not getting the dishes clean. It also seems as though the top spray bar is not spinning. Is there a filter or something that's clogged?

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!

Upper rinse arm fell off. How does it reattach?


usually it will clip to the basket that holds cups and the like, and engages with the water outlet when the basket is slid into position. Some spray arms have a locking ring that, when the spray bar is held in place, rotates clockwise (if viewed from underneath) and locks the spraybar in place.

Dishwasher has water left in it when it is done cleaning.


hit the cancel drain cycle. Often times the dishwasher drain hose is not installed properly. It must be routed up as high as the dishwasher as soon as it comes out of the unit. May be also that there was a little regular soap or something that made it sudds up. vegetable oil poured into the dw tub will remove the sudds. After running vegetable oil for about 5 minutes, pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel and No tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine.

Spray Arms dont work, dishes dirty after cleaning cycle


Do the spray bars rotate easily? If not, you need to remove the spray bars and clean the insides out (do this even if the spray bars do turn easily.). Also check that where they mount is clean and free of debris.

Check the nozzles and make sure they are not plugged.

Also check that the inlet screen to the pump is not clogged (around the bottom of the unit).

Let me know what you find, and tell me if you can hear water spraying inside the unit during a wash cycle (and do the dishes get wet.).

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.
