Spray Arms won't rotate

Re Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS03STSS
Our dishes are not getting clean anymore. Only the lower washarm rotates. The upper spray arm and the middle spray arm are not turning anymore. Is this a water pressure problem? We purchased our kitchen appliances Sept. 07 and our warranty is no longer in effect. Any ideas on how to get these spray arms to rotate?

Wont clean dishes


The little holes in the spary arms can block with general gunge etc. We use toothpicks, skewers to clear them. That sometimes helps.

The unit is 6 years old. Dishes on the top rack do not get cleaned. Dishes on the bottom rack are fine.

Dishwasher doesn't rinse all of soap off of dishes--especially on upper rack.


check the spray arms for free rotation. Clean the jet holes if they are clogged.

Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

Will not clean dishes on the upper rack


Make 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.

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).

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

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!

Upper two spray arms (Kitchenaid) are not rotating or spraying


I have had a similar problem. I found that I had to remove the spray arms and dislodge food waste that had gotten stuck in the nozzles. Whenever cleaning has been insufficient, this has always made things better. A shame that Kitcheaid didn't do a better job on their screens/grinder.
