USUALLY, there is a knob that holds the spray arm on the shaft coming up from the pump. Hold the spray arm and turn the knob the opposite direction than what the arm rotates. there might be a blockage in the shaft which can be seen when the spray arm is removed. the other blockage might be in the inlet to the pump which is on the bottom of the pan where there is a removable screen below which you can see the food/ debris grinder and below that the impeller to the pump. clean out both if you can. Caution - dont leave any screws/ hard items in the impeller cavity.

Bottom agitator brush bar doesn't rotate.


First, check to make sure the brush bar is on. The switch is right next to the machine's on-off button, and it is easy to accidentally turn it off when you turn the DC 25 on or off.

Next, check for and clear any obstructions in the brush bar housing.

Finally, check for belt wear and replace if necessary. There is a very video online showing the procedure.

10 yr old Kenmore dishwasher was leaking, cycling ok but dishes are not coming out clean. Took about bottom spray unit, found a split plastic round ring about 1.5" dia. Could this be the problem or what...


The ring fits just under the spray arm and the split is normal. When you tore the spray assembly apart, did you clean the screens at the bottom (if white hard-water deposit, soak in 50:50 hot water and white vinegar)? Make sure none of the ports in the deck are plugged with food deposits. Check both spray arms for plugged spray holes or split seams. The upper arm moves from water pressure alone--no motor. Make sure it spins freely by hand. We had to try different detergents to get away from a gritty deposit on glassware. Did you fix the leaking problem? Inspect the gasket seal around the door for damage or hardness and check the latch for holding the door closed firmly. Hope some of this helps!

Chain will not rotate; which part needs to be replaced?


Try to turn the chain by hand--if moves freely, the clutch assembly under the cover may be overly oiled. Remove the bar and chain, then wash the clutch drum and shoes with carburetor spray cleaner. Make sure the chain brake is not set. Hope this helps!

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

My KitchenAid washer will agitate, but the upper agitator assembly is not turning and I hear what sounds like marbles moving/slipping. Can I take that top piece off to look at it?


Based on your description, the problem is likely the self-rising tube that comes from the base (bottom) water feed tube. It may not be rising to engage the top assembly....

If it fails to rise all the way, the water will just spray into and on it and cause it to wobble versus rotate.

Pull up on the bottom feed tube - just to confirm that it will move freely...... (food, soap scum and age can prevent it from moving freely.) Clean and retry the washer.....

Heating element may have burned out. Check water temp during wash--should read between 130 to 140 F.
If not the heating element,you may have to replace pump-motor assembly or wash impeller.
Hope this helps.
