Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Very low pressure getting to spray arms

We have a problem with hard water in this area. I have checked that the spray arms are clean, and not plugged. I have watched the water spray with the door open. The lower arm does not have enough presure to reach half way to the upper rack. The Upper rack does not have enough pressure to spray the dishes in the upper rack, and does not move

I removed the lower spray arm, and then the filter. I found that there was a lot of buildup under the filter area. I scraped the buildup off. I found that it was restricting the input of water flow to the pump

SOURCE: 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).

Why is the spray arm in my frigidaire dishwasher not raising all the way and dishes on the top rack are not getting clean?


Good Afternoon Stephanie,

I understand the spray arm is not raising all the way in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB750RCC. I also see that the dishes on the top rack are not getting clean due to this. The spray arms are stationary where they are attached to, other than turning due to water pressure. Please try the following solutions:

• Choose another cycle for longer washing time.
• Check rack loading section for proper loading-avoid nesting items.
• Home water pressure may be too low- should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).
• Check incoming water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F.
• Select HI-TEMP WASH option.
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener.
• Use fresh detergent.
• Check to make sure funnel in top rack is not blocked.
• Make sure items are not blocking the spray arms, preventing them from rotating.


I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Spray arms not working


Hi frustrated in Raleigh,
I understand that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, even after you have cleaned the screens and arms. What might be happening is you are not getting enough water pressure to the dishwasher.
The hot water line to your dishwasher must provide water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers are in operation.
Wait until water use is reduced before starting dishwasher.
If you are still noticing that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, I would have a local Authorized Technician come out to see what exactly is going on with the spray arms of your dishwasher.

-Best Regards-

My dishes don't seem to be getting rinsed. They come out "gritty" and none of the food particles are being washed away.


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

The washer fills and runs through the cycle but leaves a grit on the dishes


Hi,

If detergent is left in the compartment:

? Be careful not to load items so close to the dispenser
that the cover will not open to release the detergent.
? The dispenser is not supposed to open when you
use the Rinse program.
? Your dishwasher detergent should be fresh and
stored tightly closed in a cool, dry place. Old or caked
detergent should be thrown away because it will not
dissolve properly and will leave a gritty residue on
the dishware.
? Wait until you are ready to start the dishwasher to
add the detergent.
? If you are using the Delay program, make sure the
dispenser is dry before adding the detergent.
? The detergent compartment only opens in the main
wash programs, not the Rinse program.


YOU MAY NEED TO CLEAN THE FILTERS MORE OFTEN
IF YOUR AREA HAS HARD WATER
This can cause low water pressure.
In hard water areas, it may be necessary to clean chemical buildup from the filters every 12 to 18 months. To do this, remove the coarse filter by squeezing the
tabs and lifting it out. Next, unscrew the fine filter and lift it and the main filter out. Wash all three filters gently in hot, soapy water and rinse them thoroughly.

Your spray arms may be clogging causing low pressure too.
Spray-arm jets and bearings may sometimes become clogged with hard water chemicals. To remove the spray arms, screw off the nut and take off the washer on top of the spray arm and lift off the arm. Wash the spray arms in warm, soapy water. Use a soft brush to clean the jets. Rinse thoroughly and replace.

Try cleaning the drain pump so it gives you more water pressure.On occasion something may get through the filters and into the drain pump. The drain pumps on ASKO dishwashers are designed to automatically reverse if anything should get caught in the propellers, thus ejecting the item back into the sump area or down the
drain. Should you need to remove an obstacle from the drain, first turn the power off then remove the filters . Next, lift out the small black insert
from the sump area. (You might want to remove any standing water first.) You can then look into the sump area for the item causing the obstruction. Should you
find something, simply scoop it out. Be sure to replace the black insert before you put the filters back in.

You could also try to clean the dishwasher with ' Dishwasher Magic '. This would work like charm :-

10 yr old Kenmore dishwasher was leaking, cycling ok but dishes are not coming out clean. Took about bottom spray unit, found a split plastic round ring about 1.5" dia. Could this be the problem or what...


The ring fits just under the spray arm and the split is normal. When you tore the spray assembly apart, did you clean the screens at the bottom (if white hard-water deposit, soak in 50:50 hot water and white vinegar)? Make sure none of the ports in the deck are plugged with food deposits. Check both spray arms for plugged spray holes or split seams. The upper arm moves from water pressure alone--no motor. Make sure it spins freely by hand. We had to try different detergents to get away from a gritty deposit on glassware. Did you fix the leaking problem? Inspect the gasket seal around the door for damage or hardness and check the latch for holding the door closed firmly. Hope some of this helps!

KUDS02FRSS4 low wash pressure in unit? Washes dishes but not the normal water pressure in unit, all filters are clean


Tear down the lower spray arm assembly to the deck while noting placement and orientation of each piece. There should be a large screen at the bottom that may be plugged with food and water deposits. Soak this screen in hot water, detergent, and white vinegar mixture. When clean, check all holes in the deck plate for any food plugging, then reassemble the entire unit in reverse order. Check all spray arms for plugging of the small holes and for any split seams. Hope this helps.

Top rack won't clean


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Only washing top rack


After observing the water just gushing out when the spray arm was removed, we determined there was still a bunch more calcification/soap in the ends of the spray arm. (We have very hard water in our area). Unfortunately, you cannot open up the spray arms to clean them out, so it took about 30 minutes of pounding and manipulating to get all the gunk out. Now my dishes are clean again. Hallelujeh! And the water cleaning the dishes is cleaner, as well.

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.
