SOURCE: dishwasher - no spray arm action

If it is filling with water properly then it sounds like the chopper screen is clogged so that water isn't getting into the pump. You can remove the top of the pump housing and get to the screen and chopper blade to inspect it. Go to sears.com, click on parts and enter your model number and you can view a diagram of the pump parts to help in disassembling it.
If the pump is not clogged then you have a problem with the impeller or motor. If this is the case you can replace the entire sump assembly just about as cheap as replacing individual parts of the pump.
Post back with any questions.
Thanks, Mike

SOURCE: dishwasher fills but arms wont spin

Hello,
It sounds like the motor is locked.

Take the bottom panel off and unplug the unit.
You will see the motor in the front. Put a screwdriver in the fan and try turing it. If it feels like a lot of resistance, keep trying to turn it. If it doesn't turn after a few minutes, then the motor needs to be replaced.

Good luck.

Hello, look at the little holes in the spray arms and see they are pluged. If so, clean the holes wiith a small pick. There are chemicals that can be run through your dishwasher to keep the hole and other stuff from pluging up with scale. I hope this help you. GB...stewbison

Top spray arm does not turn during wash or turns slightly..it is free of clogs and spins freely by hand


It will spin freely by hand, but needs to spray water out of the jets at the trailing edge of the arm. Check inside the arm for blockage and make sure that water is getting to the upper arm from the pump.

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

The arms on my kenmore dishwasher do not spin.


Check that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.

The middle arm on my Evolution dishwasher isn't spinning - the top and bottom one seem fine. Glasses especially on top shelf aren't getting clean at all (obviously!). Any suggestions?


Check if the holes are blocke dwith dirt the arms spin by newtons law that every action has a reaction (like a rocket) if the holes are blocked it wont spin as there is no force.

Dishwasher-bottom arm not spraying


The spray arms can usually be removed by unscrewing (clockwise or counter clockwise depending on brand and model), or squeezing a retainer to release the arm. Before removing the spray arm, place the spray arms (all) in a specific position and activate the dishwasher for a few seconds with wash action. Then examine the position of the spray arms to determine if there was movement from the spray arms. If not, then the spray arm(s) are probably clogged and restricting water flow (which makes them turn). Make certain that you are positioning the plates, glasses, etc. in the dishwasher so that they have access to the water. If still no luck, contact an appliance service company.

Bottom wash arm


there is a blockage but may not be obvious. arm turns only by water spraying out of the angled jets at the end of the arm. take arm off, run water thro the centre hole and this is udually enough to force the debris to the jets. clean out and check
