- Check if the water arm do turn ans spay water. To test, turn to a fix position, start the dishwasher and open after the the start of the cycle. Open the door and check the position of the arms.

If one of the arm is not turning, check the water holes One of them may be blocked

Mdc4650awb stopped working


Is it running to a point or not turning on at all. If it runs to the point when it should pump out the water and stops, then it's not the boards or electrical. I have found with dish washers that they need a good cleaning every 6 months. Dismantle the rotating arms, take out the parts underneath and remove the filters all the way to where the water enters the pump. There's often grease and blockages here. The rotating arms also get stuff forced through them that clogs the outlet holes, so dishes don't get as clean. I've found orange seeds jammed in the outlet holes that then swell up with the extra water. Hair gets in and traps grease and all kinds of stuff. I've found the plastic wrappers from dishwashing "pods" clogging the filters. You'll find everything from toothpicks to bits of bone people leave on their plates

Spray arm not turning on Bosch Tabletop S2R1B


The inside of the arms can get blocked, only if the water can move freely through them do they turn, cause by the water ejecting from the arms spay holes. Lift or pop the arm off its mount, its a push-click fit.
have a look inside it for debris like chicken bones and clean it out.
do the same for the socket the arm came off -check all tubes are clear.

You have to remove the sprayer arm, it's cover, and the cover underneath that located on the bottom of the dishwasher, inside the dishwasher. If you find a large amount of grease/food under these covers then you are not rinsing your dishes enough before placing in the washer.
The disposal unit in these units are nothing more than a cheap metal blade spinning over a metal grate. Anything tougher than a piece of cake and it's frosting runs the risk of breaking the gears that drives this.
Clean all the food/grease that you can access. Be careful while removing the gunk, I have found glass shards from broken dishes. Locate the disposal impeller and screen. It can be removed. Inspect it for damage and reinstall after cleaning.
Your water flow can be restricted if this is plugged.

Try pouring water from the front. The pump has got air traps inside. This will ease your problem.

Also check whether the spray arm turns freely without any obstacles.

Top rack not cleaning properly, not sure if top spay arm is working ?


Ensure that the spray arm is movable. Inspect the spray holes in the top spray arm. If clogged, clean the openings. If no clog, position the spray arm in a certain position (e.g.: arms facing front and back). Then activate the dishwasher for a minute or so and open the door to determine if the spray arm has moved. If not, there may be an issue with the water feeding to the spray arm (typically via the water pump, etc.).

You're going to have to take the unit apart and clean the build-up again. Since you have hard water, it's recommeded that you use tablets instead of gel or liquid detergent. If you get a water softener, you'll have to use liquid. Good luck and sorry to hear about the hard water. I have the same thing here and it's no fun. Good luck :)

Check the following to address this issue


1. No water
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.

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.
