SOURCE: The arms of my dish washer won't move

First thing you want to do is make sure the spray arms themselves are o.k. The ports are not clogged and there are no cracks. Once you are satisfied this is not the problem, check the seal ring on between the lower spray arm and the spray arm support on the pump. See if it is out of position or damaged. Make sure the water level is not too low, should just come in contact with the bottom of the heating element. Next check your filters, look for garbage, plastics, anything that would clog it. Last would be the pump itself. Ron

SOURCE: no water from top and bottom arm

I'm not familiar with that exact unit. However, all dishwashers use a solenoid valve and pump to either send the water to the drain or to the arms. If the water drains, the pump is good. Check the solenoid valve. It may be jammed (toothpicks and food particles are wonderful) or burned out. If the valve is good and working, your timer is a suspect.

SOURCE: Washer arm not working

If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: top rack washer arm isn't spinning and therefore

You can replace the whole top assembly. And before you run the cycles again, try putting a cup of Tang (dry) orange juice through the cycle without any dishes or get some Dishwasher Magic and you'll have a sparkling new dishwasher once again! hope this helps you!

I have an LG model LDS4821 dishwasher that quit washing clean. Top rack is the dirtiest. Water is hot and bottom drain is clean.


The most likely cause is a blocked or clogged wash arm. Many times when the wash stops the debris blocking the spray will back away. The holes in the arm are aimed to cause the arm to rotate. The clogged hole is usually an outer diameter hole which provides the force for the arm to rotate.

Some upper end washers have a blocked arm sense to alert when arm is blocked.

Careful not to deform the geometry of the hole when removing the debris. Tweezers work the best.

Meiko 530F leaks from doors bottom corners while washing, any hints, water level senson seems fine


Make sure the jets in the UPPER arm are all clear, and that there's no debris inside the top turret. On the bottom arm, IF the lower turret has (or is supposed to have) a rotating baffle, make sure it's in place - this looks like a very loose washer on the lower turret, running in a groove ~ the plastic versions get lost, the metal versions slip down and don't do their job.
Clean the drain channels along the bottom of the door and especially around the hinges, you will probably need a thin bottle brush or a steamer to get into the nooks and crannies.

Washer is not rotating fully during wash cycle


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Some Kenmore washers have a two piece agitator. The lower section will rotate back and forth both ways.

The top section has "agitate Dogs" that allow it to rotate only one way (to keep the clothes moving downward.

If yours has a two piece agitator there shouldn't be a problem.

My kenmore washer won't rinse or wash or drain


If you are not comfortable disconnecting the drained washer from power and water, and tipping it up so you can unscrew the bottom cover to do this, you can order Sears part # 3954702 (but make sure you check against the valid model #s for this part), which is the diagnostic paperwork that lets you run the washer through its paces one step at a time to help isolate problems.

However, the washer usually should have come with this paperwork, secreted in a plastic pouch up towards the top of the washer attached to the outer case way at the top (therefore hard to get to from the top without opening the top and sticking your arm to the inner surface of the outside case to find it).

Use a flashlight to look for it, and if you remove it be careful not to tear it up, and by all means do not lose it!

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.

I replaced the spray arm seal, but the arm still wont spin. I get water but not enough pressure to turn the top arm. The bottom arm works fine. Should the top arm turn easily when pushed by hand. It...


arms should turn freely. spray arms are only rotated by water spraying out from angled jets at end. check for blockage in spray arms - sweet corn and rice are the worst offenders. take spray arms off and run water in centre hole and see it runs out of all the jets freely
