SOURCE: GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning

I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.

SOURCE: middle arm of dishwasher not spinning

I'm the one that reported the same problem in November as "Guest". I fixed mine finally. I removed the middle arm again and noticed that the holes that spray a jet ot water causing the arm to turn aren't the ones on top. On the bottom of the arm there's a small hole at each end. I looked and one of the holes had a small piece of crud in it. I had to use the tip of an ice pick to dislodge it back into the arm. I then ran water into the arm several times hoping to get the item completely removed. I never did see anything come out but I then ran water through the arm holding it so the water could run out one end. The piece didn't show up in the hole again so I tried washing it to the other end. It still didn't show up so I guess it must have washed out the first time. It's been 3 or 4 weeks now and the arm is still functioning perfectly. Hard to believe that one little piece of trash can cause so much irritation. Good luck on this being the problem for others.

SOURCE: upper spray arm broke off

I hope it did not break, only came off. I had the same problem. You have to unscrew the round part from the ceiling of the dishwasher, put the three pieces together, easy, and then screw the whole thing back. No tools needed. Top rack can stay on while working. It helps if the dishwasher is empty. If the threading is good, this should solve the problem.

SOURCE: middle wash arm doesn't turn on quiet power 1 ge dishwasher

This arm turns due to water pressure in a small hose attached in the back of the dish chamber. Look inside when the dishwasher is empty and you will most likely see that the hose feeding the center arm is disconnected. Just push it back on and you will be up and running.

There's a bit of a rattling noise when the diswasher is running, as if something is in the pump. I've removed the strainer to see if anything is in there, but nothing. How do I remove the sprayer...


There are some GE dishwashers where the middle spray arm tube vibrates as it washes. This middle spray arm is attached to the top rack. The end of this spray arm tube where it goes into the back wall is loose. There is an after market rubber washer from GE that goes there to prevent vibration and make a tighter seal. Or you can put a tie wrap around the tube end and rack to prevent vibration.

After filling and only when rinse commences a loud chattering noise begins. Somewhat like a circuit breaker making intermittent contact. It ends when I cancel and remains silent while the pump empties...


  • It sounds like you have an obstruction with upper or lower spray arm. check to see if the something is stuck in the path of the lower spray arm.
  • move the lower rack out
  • spin the spray arm by hand to see if it is hitting anything
  • if not .....spin the upper spray arm by hand under top shelf to see if it is hitting anything.
  • let me know how this works

The middle arm on my dishwasher (ge Profile) is not turning...the top and bottom are working fine


Had same problem with mine. Actually bought all new middle arm assembly but as I was taking it apart to install new pieces, I noticed so much gunk in the middle swinging mechanism that I assumed that must have been the problem.. I really think the newer dishwashing tablets cause this buildup problem. Anyway, put on all new pieces and started the machine. Long story short, it worked great for about a month and then started doing the exact same thing. THE reason why the middle arm sprayer doesn't spin is that the little holes at each end (the ones that sit underneath and look like they should propel the sprayer arm ) get clogged. I bought some pipe cleaners, bent to an angle where I could come in from the top and pull out through the propellor hole and voila` the sprayer is swinging beautifully again.. I guess the only question I still have is why this started happening three to four years after I purchased the machine. Something somewheres else must not be doing its job.

Makes a funny noise


I had the same problem with my Triton XL Model # - GSD6660G02SS Dishwasher. I tried adding water, zip tied each wash arm (one at a time) and had no positive result. Then I noticed a notch on what is called the docking cone. It supplies water to the middle wash arm. When the upper rack is pulled out you can see the cone at the back of the washer. Anyway I put a rubber O ring on this notch and the noise stopped. I can't tell from the parts list if the O ring is supposed to be there or not. Maybe a GE repair tech can confirm this. Hope it works for you as it did for me.

Dishwasher making loud humming noise


The most common cause of the hum/grinding sound, and often poor cleaning - is a blocked filter or debris stuck below that filter.
Pretty easy fix: Get a phillips screwdriver near by. Pull out the lower rack (the upper rack can come out if you pull the little gray thingeys on the front of the upper rails.)
Remove the lower spray arm -- just pull it straight up. Remove nine silver screws from the sump area that holds the filter down. Pull the filter up and out. Rinse the filter as best you can.
While the filter removed, with a flash light inspect all over the sump area - looking for stuff that should not be there and clean it out. Watch out for broken glass!
Replace the filter, screws and the spray arm. Fire it up and check your results!
Good Luck!

Noisy dishwasher


This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with a tie wrap or wire and the noise should be gone.

Refer to the following link for my earlier response to a similar issue which fixed the problem.

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER NOISE


Usually this is caused by a long spoon or something similar being hit with water and slapping the inside of the dishwasher. Also, it could be the rinse arm spinning around and hitting a tall dish or utensil in the basket below. Check to see if the arm spins all the way around before you start your load. Also, make sure all dishes can't easily move and hit the inside of the washer.
