SOURCE: dishwasher - no spray arm action

I also had this problem and it turned out to be a small piece of a drinking glass that had made it all the way to the chopper and wedged between the blade and the housing. I was able to do all of the work from inside the dishwasher without disconnecting anything.

SOURCE: Dishwasher spray arms don't spin & spray water

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.

SOURCE: frigidaire fdb949gf dishwasher won't spray water from arms

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: Frigidaire Dishwasher - Spray Arm Not Working

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?

Good Luck!

Water not spraying out hard enough


Check water inlet valve (solenoid) for a clogged inlet screen and for proper operation (ensure full opening of the valve); check the main(undersink) water connection for an obstruction or partially closed valve, and check the lines/tubes throughout for obstructions - scale, collapsed line, etc.

My Amana Softsound 2 isn't getting dishes clean - the lower arm doesn't rotate. We cleaned around and under the arm as much as possible, got some gunk out from under, but still not rotating, so...


Check the nozzles of the arm themselves. if you found lots of gookl there maybe some inside the arms blocking the spray holes which cause it to spin

Dishwasher is not spraying water


check that you aren't blocking the spray arms with items you have loaded into the dishwasher. Make sure that things such as pot handles or silverware is not obstructing the arms

Lower arm does not spin, but water sprays from from the jets


Something is jamed around the pivot point of spray arm, force it just a tad, not to break anything more than what might be jamming it. You might have to take it apart to remove the cause.

Is there enough water pressure to spin the arm ?The arm should spin freely.
