You probably have clogged jet nozzles in your arms. After a while, food particles can build up and affect your wash performance . Or, your pump may be bad, in which case I recommend getting a new unit.

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-

My 2 year old frigidaire dishwasher is not filling up with water, goes through cycle but no water is coming out, valve is open all the way?


If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


Hello

your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.

Pump

The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.

Clogs

Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Hello

Ensure the Frigidaire dishwashing machine is fully connected to a power supply. Shut the dishwasher door firmly and select a wash cycle. Press "Start" to begin. Check that the "delay start" option was not selected.

  • 2 Verify that dishwashing detergent is placed in the dispenser and choose a longer washing cycle for heavily soiled items. Do not overload the dishwasher, as this may prevent proper cleaning.
  • 3 Check the household water pressure, which should be between 20 and 120 PSI (pounds per square inch). A water pressure gauge can be obtained at most home repair stores or hardware stores.
  • 4 Turn on the hot water at the sink closest to the dishwasher prior to starting the dishwasher to raise the water temperature inside the dishwasher. Check the hot water temperature, which should be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit for proper cleaning.
  • 5 Check the spray arms in the dishwasher and move dishes that may be blocking the water spray or preventing the spray arms from rotating properly.

    My Kenmore dishwasher does not drain out, What could be the problem?


    No drainage, or poor drainage issues are usually caused by either a failed drain pump, or the sump area under the sprayer is clogged with debris. The sump is the area at the bottom of the tub where water collects on the initial fill. A wash pump cycles the water throughout the wash cycle, followed by the same water being drained from the unit by means of a drain pump. This area is usually covered by a coarse screen and fine screen to prevent debris from accumulating. But, over time, some debris may still get past the screens and collect in the sump. This usually results in poor cleaning results due to restricted water flow through the spray arms, and poor draining.

    I would recommend you remove the lower spray arm and screens and check the sump area for obstructions. If the unit still has standing water inside, use a wet/dry shop vac to drain. Remove the drain line from your sink and pull a vacuum on the end of the dishwasher drain hose. If the water drains freely from the unit, then you probably have a bad drain pump. If the water will not drain, you have a clog somewhere. Check your drain lines and pump for obstructions.

    If you have any questions, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER. I hope this helps you.

    Error code OE; dishwasher stops with error message 2 min into cycle, drainage seems OK, water doesn't appear to pump into machine - any advice?


    Hi,
    The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
    1. Blocked drain hose
    2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
    3. Failing drain motor. 
    else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD
    Good Luck!!!

    Dishwasher not spraying


    It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Good luck!
