These are the spray arms. If both are not operating - are you geting any water through them at all?
If no - then the fault is the circulating pump or control circuit. Not cheap I'm afraid.
Spray arms are usually ok.
If you are getting water throuh them, then remove them (2 clips or a large nut), and rinse them through. Oftem bits of food get past the filter, and end up blocking all the holes. Make sure they are all clear.

How should I dry lettuce if I don't have a salad spinner?


I don't have a salad spinner at home. All I do it rinse the lettuce, leave it basically "standing up" inside of a collander and let the water drip off. If I don't have enough time to leave it til it drys on its own, I sometimes shake it out and then wrap in it paper towel for a few minutes.

Recently my dishwasher KUDSO1FLSS2 is not cleaning the top rack very well requiring multiple washings. Both the top spinner and mid rack spinner (under top rack) turn freely by hand but limited water...


If there afilter on the inlet hose it might need clening,if you have a partial blockage it will reduce the volume of water entering your appliance.Hope this helps.

Whirlpool dishwasher top spinner and top rack spinner is not putting out water or very little and not spinning. I have taken apart and cleaned everything including the sump / chopper, can't find any...


First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)

Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then the motor is failing and too weak to drive the spray arms.
To answer your question, I think the answer is "They don't make them like they used too!"

Water won't go to the top spinners


there is probably food stuck in the spinner,

ive had to remove the spinners on my mind one a year, and use the pressure washer on them, to get out the small chucks of food, and or plastic pieces.

Yes i know we can rinse more, but hey no one is perfect :)

Top rack not cleaning, possibly spinner not spinning?


Try twirling the spinner by hand to see if it is binding. If it looks ok then there could be something plugging the water passage to the spinner. If you have access to a water hose you could run water into that verticle passage pipe and see if there is an obstruction. If so it can be taken apart for cleaning.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher and the 3rd level spinner broke off. I have a new one and now need to know how to replace it.


the manifold in the back of the dishwasher needs to come out. you can either pop it all the way out it only undo it halfway if your arm is small enough.. there are either 2 tension clips or 2 screws holding it to the top and back. if you undo the top of the manifold and pull it down you should be able to slide the new part in place. the plastic push pin goes on top of the manifold and the spinner goes on the other side. it may be a little difficlt to push the 2 together..

How to take the upper and lower spinner off.


1. No waterMake sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.
