The top washer is not spinning


Look at the top spray arm and see if it moves freely. Inspect the middle part of the spray arm. Sometimes a tall dishes can prevent the arm from moving. Put the spray arm at 12 o'clock position and have a cup right side up in the dishwasher. Run a cycle. During the cycle the cup should be filled to the top with in 20sec and the spray arm should have moved from its position. If not then change out the spray arm and Delivery tube.

Try rotating the spray arms by hand. It should rotate freely. If possible clean the arm rotating place by removing them.

Arms rotate by by pump pressure only. finally check the water pump also.

I have a Beko D 2731 FW its about 4 years old and recently it has begun to leave a gritty deposits. I think this may be due to the top spray arm not running as freely as it used to. I would appreciate any...


Hello,
Here are a few things to check.

* Worn wash impeller (depending on design). Test by placing a glass upright in upper rack with full charge of water in the basin. Run dishwasher for 30 seconds. Glass should fill up. If not, replace wash impeller.

* Debris caught in spray arm holes. Remove spray arm and clean out with water and compressed air.

* Heating element burned out. Check water temp during wash--should read between 130 to 140 F.

* Insufficient water fill in basin. In most models, proper fill level is just up to the heating element. Much less than this will result in poor cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Equator PLS600 spray arm will not move.


Problem solved. Removed spray arm assy including nut (attached to body). Manually moved propeller inside water inlet. This freed it up enough to get her working again. Apparent cause was enough debris in chamber to cause it to seize. Note that this fix was preceded by the famous WikiFix of filling chamber with baking soda then topping it off with white vinegar, left overnight. Also note that the above manual movement of the propeller was done with the machine on (not recommended) at the point in the cycle where the spray arm should have been operating.

Maytag MDB3700AWE bottom wash arm does not move Freely by hand


Yes, the wash arm should spin freely. Recommend that you remove the arms and search for what is stopping it.
In addition to hard water, the ultra-cheap dishwasher powder really does/can leave calcium-like deposits behind. Use brand name powder for 30 days and you will see a difference. Never use gel or tablets in any dishwasher.
Adding a whole-house water softener would eliminate 90 % of your problem. The other 10% will be taken care of by not buying ultra generic powder.

Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin. If spray arm does spin freely, remove spray arm clip, spray arm and the post assy (the thing the spray arm attaches to). Try your WikiFix again. This time add baking soda to the hole the post assy came from. Top it off with white vinegar. Leave it overnight. In the morning, stick your finger down the hole where the spray arm assy sat. You should feel a plastic thing. This is a propeller attached to the recirculation pump. You need to free it up. Get that thing moving with your pinky or a chopstick or whatever. Try the machine without the spray arm. You should get water blasting up from the hole. Reassemble the spray arm.

Wash cycle


Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation). Good luck !!
