Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. DW731 Built-in Dishwasher
Same as the other lady--arms not moving and the holes are clear on the arms--what is the problem--everything else appears to be working properly--makes a noise it did not make before
I realize this problem was in March of 2008 but if in the case someone else needs the solution. The Frigidaire website doesn't list this in there troubleshooting list either.
I had the same problem and let the upper spray arm off for a couple of months. My glasses were not getting cleaned as well so I was rewashing everything by hand. What's the point of that if I have a dishwasher.
On the inner roof of the dishwasher there is a round piece that you hook the upper spray arm to. Well it's a pain to try to just snap it on. Unscrew it by hand, get the little white plastic piece so the teeth are pointing out of the hole and snap on it on that way. One tooth at a time and it should go back on. It will be wobbly. Works like new I am so happy !
From now on be careful what you place on the top rack, if the item is too big it will cause it to snap off again. I know I will :)
Thank god I didn't get a repair man in here for something as minimal as that.

yes somthing /pice of somthing has gotten into the works;usually its a chunk of glass or small pice of plastic.no eazy way to fix.youl have to drain and go from the top down.[removing wash impeller pump cover and keep going down each time taking parts off and looking for some small hard somthing.im afraid youl end up going all the way down to the chopper/food grinder.leave the screws in the parts you take off so wont get mixed up.take your time.ive done it hundreds off times i know you can pull it off ,once.you can do it.ps you can let it run like that thru some loads to see if will grind up or clean its self out.knowing what i know i would have no problem trying that on my dish washer.and have done it a few times.hope that helps God bless,tom

I found on my first dishwasher the arm holes were plugged. I had to clean out each and every hole with a small wire. They would not even turn until I cleaned them God luck.

SOURCE: upper spray arm broke off
I hope it did not break, only came off. I had the same problem. You have to unscrew the round part from the ceiling of the dishwasher, put the three pieces together, easy, and then screw the whole thing back. No tools needed. Top rack can stay on while working. It helps if the dishwasher is empty. If the threading is good, this should solve the problem.

When a dishwasher has been checked for obstructions in the sump area and the spray arms can spin easily (by hand) plus the spray arm holes are not blocked, you end up with either a broken impeller or a failing wash pump motor.
If you would like more details of have more questions, please post comment back here, OK?
