SOURCE: dishwasher does not clean properly

sewnice, you might have to dig a little deeper to correct the problem. As long as you can spin the spray arm with your hand and it's not split it should be ok. Your chopper screen might be plugged. You will have to remove the lower spray arm and filter cover. These are torq screws. The accumulator assy. turns to the right to unlock and will lift off. It will take some pressue to snap it off the rear fill tube. Now you will be looking down at the cover that protects the chopper and screen. There is one torq screw holding it down. Remove the screw and lift it off. See if the screen is clogged. If it is, it will prevent the pump from sending water to the upper spray arm in force. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Bottom Dishwasher arm not turning

have you seen whether water is pouring out of the bottom supply tube with the lower arm removed? not 100% sure on this model but some units have a half load switch but that should turn off the top one. there may be a blockage in the lower water supply tubeways.

SOURCE: Top rack arm doesn't spin.

matt, did you get down to the chopper screen? If that screen is clogged the flow to the upper arm will be restricted. Check out the pic, Catriver

SOURCE: water not spraying hard enough

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:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

Why is the upper sray arm is not working in kitchenaid model KUDR01TJ


There are 2 spray arms for the top rack. A small one on the dishwasher top and a bigger one attached to the bottom of the upper rack. Both get water feed from a flat tube that runs up the back wall of the dishwasher. Not much to the very top little arm--just check the spray holes for any food blockage and try to clean with a brush or tooth pick. The bigger arm on the bottom of the top rack gets its water feed through a hole about half way up the flat tube on the back wall. When you push the rack all the way in, it has to plug itself into that hole in the back wall. Check that plug in area and make sure nothing broke off that would keep it from making a good seal with the rack all the way in. All check all the holes in the spray arm for food blockages. On the very end of all spray arms is a main hole that is the drive hole to spin the spray arm. The water shoots out that hole and acts like a jet engine to push the arm around. Make sure those holes are clear.

Hello, I have a portable Moffat dishwasher Model: MRC3210SW159, Serial: AR608530A. We are getting small food bits stuck all over the dishes. Not sure what to take apart or do? Could you please give us some...


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
Finally, the bottom of the door INSIDE the washer often get covered with gunk. Be sure and gently wash the bottom of the door INSIDE. You can open the door, spray some window cleaner on the bottom and then gently brush away the 'gunk.' Rinse with hot water from a pitcher or your sink sprayer and this can eliminate some of the residue that is showing on your dishes.

And of course, when you're loading the dishwasher, be sure none of the items are resting ON each other. This will prevent the water from circulating and cleaning.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

Spray Arm Doesn't Move on my GSD5630d01ww!


When you say the dishwasher is running do you mean that the pump is operating?  If the pump is not pumping water the arm will not spin.  Is there a bottom arm and is it spinning?  If it spins then the pump is working. The upper arm will not spin if it is blocked by hitting a large dish or utensil.  There should be some sort of tube or tower (some are collapsible) in the center of the lower rack that shoots water into the bottom of the spin arm above.   Is it missing, blocked or clogged?

Bosch dishwasher - top row of dishes do not get clean


There is a screen that you can remove from the sump of the dishwasher to clean. Just twist it to the left and pull it out. I have some tips that you might want to check out if this does not resolve your problem.

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.
