It sounds like your jet sprays are clogged. Try a couple of things. Lets start by cleaning the unit with beach and white vinegar. Use a cup of each with not dishes inside. Do not heat dry, ever. Next use a liquid jet cleaner. You should notice a difference doing this. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Not finishing cycle


Is it draining out the water?? Dishwashers fill, spray, and drain more than several times during a cycle. After starting a cycle, let the unit fill, start spraying, and then cancel the cycle--listen for the drain pump activating and pumping out the water. If water is not being drained properly(within a certain time limit), the unit will error code out and stop. Also, make sure the filter is clear--if it gets clogged with "muck", enough water won't be sprayed onto the dishes properly, the pump will require too much energy to try to pump water, the control will sense this and shut down the unit to protect it.

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-

Fills with water, skips wash and rinse cycle, starts spin cycle and sprays water out of the top


I would look at lid switch on this model and plunger to lid .Under lid is spray flume that can be damaged by large loads ,check that close. put it in wash full and drop lid hard it may come on.

Water sprays into machine on spin cycle


the machine is programmed to spray water during the initial period of the spin cycle as an added method of removing any remaining suds
that stops then the spin cycle goes into high speed spin for that last few minutes
If the problem is that it continues to spray water until the spin cycle is finished it will be the program board or program controller switch

Wont clean dishes


The little holes in the spary arms can block with general gunge etc. We use toothpicks, skewers to clear them. That sometimes helps.

Cycle starts but no water comes in.just gets hot and steamy


It can be due to a block in the inlet valve , a block in the pressure pump or the spraying arm. You need to check from the inlet to see the water flow into the unit. check also with a meter to see if the controller works to the cycle and there is output. If not the water within is heating and so there is steam . restoring the water flow will make the pressure pump to spray hot water. Check the pump and the spraying arm.

DW fills and empties, but, in between the sprayer never comes on. There is absolutely no sound as the timer goes through the spray/wash cycle.


start the unit and open the door after abt 3 mins and look for water inside.if water is there and u dont hear water spray sound when running but only a low humming sound the motor is bad.if there is no water then chk for anything stuck under the water float.if that is ok then there is problem with fill valve.

Jet spray nozzle not spraying water.


If no water is coming out at all, it might be that the inlet filter is clogged or the Est. time shows the code IE. To clean out the inlet filters, unplug the washer, turn off the water, open the valves, take a filter cap thing and try rinsing it out. To put it back to operational use, reverse the steps above.
