Hello there:
first you will want to make sure that all of the filters are clean
next check to see that the water supply hose have not become clogged or kinked .
next look at the filter that is under the arm assembly you will have to remove the upper spray arms to get to the filter make sure that this is clean now look very closley at the spray arms especially the ends they have very tiny holes that can easily get clogged. a tooth pick or a medium sise needle works very good to remove any thing in these nozzles make sure you look at EVERY ONE of them ok
once they are all cleaned you should be all right
best regards michael

Kitchenaide rinse dispenser in dishwasher doesn't work. White soapy streaks on plates


Confirm that lower washarm is rotating. Initially check by rotating by hand. Second mark arm position turn on unit stop and heck arm position.

Listen very carefully and confirm arm is turning. It is often found debris clogs the lower arm jet preventing the arm from turning.

Also check the water level in washer sump. Low will also keep the arm from rotating.

Hope this helps.

Bottom arm will not spin


Possible that the water pressure is low as there is dirt accumulation within the unit and so the pump filters are clogged

I have a Kenmore 16059 and dishes aren't rinsing clean. Seems like the spinner arms are moving and water is draining but dishes are wet with gunk in them.


Possible that the pressure of the pump for the spraying arm is very low or is absent. Check for power to the pump when the CYCLE is ON. If there is no power then the controller is faulty If there is power then the pump is faulty. Also check for clogging on the spraying arm, it must be able to rotate with power or the pump action is low or there is dirt within the system. If so remove and clean using a jet wash and reset.

My dinner plate stops the arm rotating, why? model fdud4812


Both upper and lower washing arms operate on the water pressure and angle of water flowing thru them.
Pressure provided by water pump.

Just about anything that contacts the rotating arm can stop it.
Best thing to do is re-arrange items in dishwasher so that arms can spin freely.
One can always spin washing arms by hand to ensure proper clearance.

Hope this helps...

How do i change clutch release arm


I believe the arm is on top of the case on the left hand side attached to a shaft that goes into the case. It also may have a bolt in the side of the case below the arm that has a machined shoulder on it to retain the shaft from pulling out. If it does, remove it.If this is the way it's set up, it actuates the clutch thru a rod that goes all the way across the motor inside the hollow shaft that the clutch is mounted on. I don't have specific experience to the 250 KX, but I've been in the little ones and that's the way they're set up. So here's what you do-
Drain the gear oil and remove the round clutch cover on the right side of the bike. Remove the 5 or 6 washered bolts and the springs from the clutch pressure plate. Remove the pressure plate and you'll see the clutch lifter-it's a short rod with a flat bearing on it located in the middle of the clutch shaft. Remove it and using a small magnet tool go inside the hollow shaft and retrieve the actuating rod. There may be a ball bearing with it as well, although I don't think there is in that bike. Anyway, don't lose it if it has one and pay attention to which end of the shaft goes to the clutch arm. You can now replace the arm. When your putting it back together, rotate the arm with your fingers and make sure the lifter is moving up and down before you put the pressure plate and springs back in. Good luck!

Top level rack pots are not cleaned, spray head does not rotate but water coming out of sprayhead, no obstruting parts


Check and see whether it freely rotates, when turned manually. The spray arm rotates under water pressure from the pump inside the machine.

Check inlet water pressure and clean the strainer at the inlet hose end near th inlet to the machine. Check and clean the spray arm axle housing also

LG LDS5811WW Low pressure out of spray arms


On the LG LDF xxxx dishwasher family, the Vario feature uses a motor/check valve to switch between "full power" cleaning from _either_ the lower or the upper spray arms, never at the same time. So, not seeing the upper arm spin during the lower arm spinning is standard operating procedure.

But back to your problem. Step one would be to remove the filter assembly again and make certain that there is nothing (debris, broken glass) blocking the white areas where the check valve rotates to switch between upper/lower spray arms. A blockage there ~could~ cause impotent spraying/cleaning.

If there is no blockage and the impeller remains in good shape, suspect a failing wash pump motor. Try to isolate the noise to that motor.

Watch for error codes on the display and report back what you find, OK?

Good Luck!
