Feeder will not dispense fertilizer from bottle when spraying


sometimes you have to shake it to loosen a particle stuck in the delivery hole of the bottle....doesn't have to be a large particle in order to plug up the works....or you may even have to remove the bottle, pry off the bottle cap, rinse it good and check for debris plugging up the works....good luck

The top sprayer holes on sprayer arm are blocked, how does sprayer arm come apart to clear blockage?


The sprayer arm does not come apart. You have to remove the sprayer arm and use an object that fits in the holes to clear the blockage.

The dishes on the top rack are not cleaning at all. The sprayer arm is not rotating. The jets are all clear of debris. And of course, warranty just out.


Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and youl'll need a Torx driver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Spray arms blocked how do I detach clear/clean them?


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. In the center of the sprayer arm there is usually a wing nut that unscrews easily and releases the sprayer arm. Once you have removed the arms, rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

The top sprayer is not spraying any water and the middle sprayer has water except it does not have enough pressure of water to spin around the sprayers. What do I need to do to fix the problem


All sprayed water comes from the pump located at the lower deck. Remove all parts from the lower spray assembly (note position and orientation of each part) down to the deck. There should be a large filter screen at the bottom that commonly becomes plugged with food and hard water deposits. Soak the screen in a mixture of hot water, white vinegar, and dish detergent for an hour or two until the deposits come free. Check around the pump area and the deck openings for any debris plugging. Reassemble in reverse order, but check all three spray arms for spray hole plugging or split seams. Hope this helps!

Sprayer holes on Maytag QuietSeris 3000 get clogged. Is there a way to open up the arms for cleaning?


you should be able to remove the washer sprayer by either on snapping it or unscrewing it at the base . Sometimes there's a screw at the top of the sprayer . Remove it and flush it from the outside in that is the only way to remove debris from the inside. Finally , purchase an inline water filter for the unit to keep it from happening again .

Dishwasher does not clean items on top shelf.


Check the upper spray arm holes for debris that may be plugging up the spray arm. If clean remove the lower spray arm and filter screen and clean out any debris in the sump.

dishwashers need alot of water ..check hoses for blockage and water pressure...should be around 40. also check and see if proper drainage. water has to get to the top by hoses to a sprayer check that...a motor has to run the sprayer,that looks like a 2 blades whirling about with holes, and might have clutches and gears worn in that cycle...you will stand there and hear all the cycles and can open it to see if top gets water. good luck
