There is no water getting to the top end of the second rack plz help


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

This procedure applies to most modern Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, Kenmore, Amana, dishwashers...to name a few. There may be subtle differences between them such as options, rack design, lower spray arm appearance etc.


There likely is a blockage in the filter/screen and chopper assembly below in the sump well, it's just not obvious/visible. The place to look for a remedy is the wash pump area, you`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.

This is why the top rack is most effected, poor water circulation.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
a6dcf7f.jpg

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
f634f7c.jpg
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
87fb0d6.jpg
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

333a8e1.jpg

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
i.e.
macmarkus_416.jpg

Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly,

macmarkus_832.jpg

it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.

If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear.

A glass broke and pieces of glass fell inside of the washer strainer module. How do you remove this screw that sits on top so that the glass inside can be vacuumed out. The screw moves but does not...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I think this should help and be just what you need to get to that piece of glass and remove the spray arm so you do not have to call a technician...and maybe more.


You`ll need to follow these steps to access and clean it. (The key with the spray arm nut is to hold it while you spin the spray arm, not the nut...provided it is a KUDS02 series dishwasher as stated).

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
a6dcf7f.jpg

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
f634f7c.jpg
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out. This should allow you to remove the broken glass.

The water flow is not normal. Very little water is flowing thru the machine


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

With the symptom you`ve described..."The water flow is not normal. Very little water is flowing thru the machine",
this is an error of poor water circulation...many times manifesting in this manner not cleaning upper rack.

Yes there is a filter/screen and chopper assembly and as you suspected, the first place to look for a remedy is the sump-well, wash pump area. You`ll need to remove the lower spray arm and then the filter below it.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

a6dcf7f.jpg

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

f634f7c.jpg
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".

a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.

5f19a61.jpg
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...


333a8e1.jpg

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find either alot of food debris, garbage etc. , but also a cover with either a single #15 torx head screw or it will simply be held with a lock tab which must be pushed to one side and the cover will pull straight up and out. ( I haven`t gathered my own photo`s of this area yet, soon to come )

Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it to can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.

If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

The top sprayer is not working on my d/w.


Try removing the spray arm (no tools required) and clearing the holes in the arms.

(Sometimes small pieces of food get past the filter and block the apertures).

Also check the filter for cleanliness; making sure that it is screwed firmly back into position.

Want to remove the spray arm and clean the filter


Hi,

Below is a link showing how to clean out the sump area below the spray arms. If you want to clean the top filter when taking it apart, vinegar works to dissolve a lot of the deposits.

Water goes into the bottom, but it doesn't spray the dishes.


The filter may be clogged. Remove the bottom rack and the bottom spray arm to get access to the filter. It surrounds the arm support. It could lift straight up or you may have to remove screws in the top plate to release it. If the filter is clean and the problem continues then the pump is not working. Also check to make sure the spray arm holes are not clogged and that there is nothing hitting the arm to prevent it moving (like a spoon handle sticking down below the rack.)

How do you remove the drain filter screen?


On some models (KitchenAid) you lift off the spray arm and then lift the filter up. It is fastened with spring clips. On other models removing the spray arm reveals screws at the top of the filter housing that need to be removed to get the filter up. If you have the manual there will be instructions for removing the filter.
