Hi,
You will need to boost your water pressure... it needs 40-60 PSI to work correctly...

Orbit traveling sprinkler won't move wheels turn when in neutral but not on high or low setting worked fine last night now nothing!!


I have a brand new orbit traveling sprinkler and the wheels won't move - they're frozen. The directions say to "Pull out the stopper underneath the sprinkler between the back wheels ..." and there is a white knob attached to a spring. When I try adjusting that, the wheels stay locked, frozen, won't move. What am I doing wrong?

Orbit traveling won't move


I just had the same thing happen to me. You have to turn the arms counter clockwise...opposite of the tightening bolts, and have them pointing in opposite directions to get it to turn. If the unit moves backwards, turn them another 180deg to the opposite directions, and it should go forward.

Upper spray arm on my Kitchen Aid dishwasher (8573025) doesn't work.


Arm operates(turns) by water pressure. If it does not turn no water is going to the top spray arm. make sure the setting washer is on does not preclude the top spray arm from operating(read manual). If not check arm by spinning by hand to make sure it is free. If arm is free and it still does not turn when DW is running than there is a restriction in the tubing to the upper spray arm or the check ball or solenoid are not operating correctly.

Our Nelson tractor sprinkler is going backwards! How do we correct this?


You need to aim the rotary arms in the opposite direction. If the spray pattern is spinning clockwise, then you need to make it spin counter-clockwise or vice-versa. You do this by adjusting each of the 2 arms 180 degrees so that the jet stream spurts right instead of left (or left instead of right). Remember, the spray arms are connected to a gear box, and the gear box turns the wheels. Your wheels are moving in the wrong direction because the gears are moving in the wrong direction because the spray arms are spinning in the wrong direction because they are aimed in the wrong direction.

WHY IS MY RAIN TRAIN MOVING BACKWARDS


Hi there ... have you posted this question before? Not important ... I answered this question yesterday ...

ASSURE that the water arms are pointing in the proper direction. Normally, the arms should turn in a clock-wise direction to make the "tractor" go forward. If yours are going the other way, the tractor will travel backward. If yours ARE moving in a clock-wise direction and your tractor is going backward, reverse so the arms travel in a counter clock-wise direction. If it STILL goes backward, no matter which direction you are spinning, return the device to the store where you got it and ask for assistance.

I have this very device (though not this model number), though mine is LOTS older than yours is. I can make it go backward but it doesn't necessarily want to straddle the hose in reverse. All I do is reverse the direction the arms spin and vo-la ... it goes backward. BTW, I always store my tractor with the transmission in neutral to avoid damage by rough handling of others.

Both spray arms of my DU943PWKQ0 do not turn or spray. The motor is moving and the it drains without problem. During the wash and rinse cycle I can hear the sound of water, however it doesn't clean at...


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.

LG LDS5811WW Low pressure out of spray arms


On the LG LDF xxxx dishwasher family, the Vario feature uses a motor/check valve to switch between "full power" cleaning from _either_ the lower or the upper spray arms, never at the same time. So, not seeing the upper arm spin during the lower arm spinning is standard operating procedure.

But back to your problem. Step one would be to remove the filter assembly again and make certain that there is nothing (debris, broken glass) blocking the white areas where the check valve rotates to switch between upper/lower spray arms. A blockage there ~could~ cause impotent spraying/cleaning.

If there is no blockage and the impeller remains in good shape, suspect a failing wash pump motor. Try to isolate the noise to that motor.

Watch for error codes on the display and report back what you find, OK?

Good Luck!
