My lower wash arm is not spinning. I have disassembled everything that I could below the lower wash arm and cleaned the mineral deposits and old detergent residue off of everything. I have re-assembled...


The water flows from the sump and is forced through the sump by the motor that is attached to the sump assembly click on this link to see the schematic for that area of the unit http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0704047-00008.png part number 6 which is termed as a wash impell is what pushes the wash water through as well as part number 7 which is the accumulator of the unit if the impell or impellar is spining properly and you have cleaned the lower wash arm of all deposits and when you put the arm back on by screwing down part number 1 and then you spun the arm and it did spin freely the issue would then be within the sump some do choose to replace piece by piece of the sump assembly personally I found it much cheaper to just buy the entire sump and replace it as a kit which comes with a new motor as well then to replace piece by piece of the sump assembly in the unit . Make sure that the motor to the unit is running when the unit goes into the wash cycle if the motor is not running then this would be why the water is not flowing to the wash arm also if the arm does not spin properly then you would also have an issue with the water coming out of the arm as well. If you choose you can try to replace the wash impell which is part number 99002659 and if your looking for the best priceing I would use this company they tend to be alot cheaper then the other appliance companies I find http://www.allbrandonline.com/Default.aspx?Page=My%20Account%20Profile If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Dishwasher Not washiig properly suspect upper spray arm is


the most common problem is low water pressure.when you start the dishwasher check the amonut of water in the bottom of the dishwasher there should be about an inch of water in the bottom.
if needed add some more water to the unit and see what happens this can determine if the fill valve is bad,or the control board.if the unit washes change the fill valve or check your water pressure,if there is no change then the main wash motor needs to be change because it is not putting enough water through the system to properly wash.

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.


it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

Frigidaire dishwasher model FDB857RJS1 not pumping water to the top arm. runs then makes a grinding sound like the motor skipping a gear then back to moving water but not enough pressure to get to the top...


HI, under the sump housing, there is a major issue concerning the circulation motor. there is a wash impeller that is connected to the circulation motor, via drive shaft and stud. this assembly has been stripped, due to a possible jam that was caused by a foreign object. the impeller is basically, producing the grinding sound you are hearing, you will need to replace this damaged wash impeller asap. it will ruin the motor soon if it is not removed.

This wash impeller is responsible for the flow of water during the wash cycle. it is not completely off the shaft but, eventually , it will break off soon, causing major damage to the circulation motor.

Dishwasher not draining properly. How much water


Its likely to be one of the following

a) a partially blocked drainhose
b/ the solenoid on the drain valve not opening closing probably
c) a blocked drain valve with a piece of bone or debris

This article should help you:

Dishwasher Basics The main parts of a dishwasher are: Control mechanism
The control mechanism is located inside the door behind the control panel. Many units use a simple electro-mechanical system: a timer determines how long each part of the cycle lasts and activates the proper function at the proper time (such as the detergent dispenser, wash spray and draining functions). Units that are more expensive might have a computerized control system. Modern units also have a door latch that must be closed for the unit to run. Some also have child safety locks. Intake valve
This is where water from the home's water supply enters the dishwasher. The unit's pump doesn't pump the water into the basin – when the intake valve opens, water pressure drives the water into the unit. Pump
An electric motor powers the pump. During the pump cycle, the pump forces water up into the spray arms. During the drain cycle, the pump directs the water into the drain hose. The motor-pump assembly is mounted beneath the basin, in the center of the dishwasher. There are two main types of pump:
  • Reversible
    These pumps switch between pumping water to the spray arms and pumping water to the drain by reversing the direction of the motor. Reversible pumps are usually vertically mounted. dishwasher-11.jpg
    -->Reversible pump

  • Direct-drive
    The motor runs in one direction, so the direction of flow is switched from spray arms to drain by a solenoid that opens and closes the appropriate valves or switches one hose connection to another. Non-reversible pumps are usually horizontally mounted. dishwasher-12.jpg
    -->Direct-drive pump

Dishwashers can be installed in either a portable or a permanent configuration. Portable units have finished sides and top that can be used as a countertop. When not in use, the machine sits in place next to the wall. When it's time to run a cycle, the unit can be rolled on casters over to the sink, where it connects to the faucet and plugs into a nearby outlet. In a permanent installation, the dishwasher goes underneath the existing countertop and bolts into place. Hoses underneath the kitchen sink connect directly to the hot water line and the drain line, and the unit usually plugs in under the sink as well. Both types of installation require a 120-volt grounded line.

Kenmore portable dishwasher not draining


Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Kenmore dishwasher, water not going through the jets


when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)

Machine runs through cycle but does not wash dishes


It sound like a pump issue. The pump is attached to the motor and forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. Look if the pump's impeller (a round plastic fan blade-type of device) spins around. In case it doesn't spin, look if it doesn't blocked or stuck from any other reason. Good luck
