You can find a manual online. Get a copy & see if they tell you how to remove the arm.

Not sure of the distinction between turning & spinning you cite.

Check that some food item has not become lodged and is binding the arm. Empty the washer, remove the rack & invert on a counter to get optimum access to the arm. The problem may become obvious.

Good Luck

Bottom water sprayer not spining


If the dishwasher won't clean dishes, check the lower wash arm assembly. If the lower wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the lower rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the lower wash arm assembly spins freely. Also check to be sure the little holes in the lower wash arm aren't clogged or blocked.

Why are the items on bottom rack not being cleaned properly


If is clean dishes in the upper basket, I conclude that the pump produces enough pressure what means that the lower spray arm for some reason does not rotate and because that washing result is bad. Before washing I would check the lower spray arm rotates freely and after that open the door during washing and check if the lower spray arm rotates. Sometimes, the holes in the spray arm clog and disable turning which leads to poor washing results in the lower basket.

Neither the upper or lower wash arms spin.


Circulation pump might be faulty. or spray arms are blocked. remove spray arms and clean them and try it again.

My dinner plate stops the arm rotating, why? model fdud4812


Both upper and lower washing arms operate on the water pressure and angle of water flowing thru them.
Pressure provided by water pump.

Just about anything that contacts the rotating arm can stop it.
Best thing to do is re-arrange items in dishwasher so that arms can spin freely.
One can always spin washing arms by hand to ensure proper clearance.

Hope this helps...

The bottom washer arm does not turn or squirt water


Hi Matt.
The lower housing underneath the lower wash arm may still have something blocking the water passages.

If the spray arm is clean and it freely rotates try lightly pressing down on the wash arm and then rotate it. Your checking to see that when water is applied to the spray arm it forces the arm down against the lower housing tower and hopefully does not lock up. If it does lock up while pressing down and rotating obviously you need to find out what the cause is.

You may have to remove the lower wash arm housing and clear the debris from the water passages. Once the passages are clear it should work fine.

Thanks for using FixYa,

How do you remove the lower spray arm on a Kenmore Ultra Wash (665.17019.402)? I was told to hold on to the plastic screw and spin the arm counterclockwise to remove, but I've been spinning and...


Hi, In the center of the spray arm is a threaded piece of plastic/bolt.
Use pliers and turn that tab on the bolt. If it doesn't turn easy. Holt the bolt and try to turn the spray arm with you hand.
It will release the spray arm so you can remove it.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dishes not clean. Lower spray arm possibly not moving.


Remove the lower basket so you can access the lower arm.

Does it spin freely? If not, remove and clean the rotating point. Make sure the spray nozzles are not clogged and there as no chunks of stuff inside the spray arm.
