Your spray arm jets are probably clogged.
Depending on the model, the lower spray arm generally has a nut or thumb/butterfly screw (plastic) that you remove and then lift the spray arm off. I always soak mine in hot soapy water and then flush with hot water. If debris such as pieces of paper, bone, peelings are in there, you'll need to take a tweezer or toothpick to remove them from the jets. The upper spray arm usually has the same apparatus and you can follow the same procedure.
I hope these suggestions help your problem. If so please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

All the jets must be clean especially the drive jets at the ends of the wash arms, these drive the arms around thus allowing jets of water to reach every piece of crockery.

Dishes in the bottom rack staying dirty


Take off the arm and poke the blockages back into the jets then shake them out of the central pivot hole.
Remember, the drive jets (Which are at the end and make the arm turn) are the most important to keep clean.

My Bosch logixx dishwasher is sticking on 1 minute at end of cycle; the dishes will be clean but still wet rather than dry.


100% add the jet dry until it is completetly filled then close the dispenser door and lower then raise the door.repeat this at least three times then check and fill if you can still add more. then after doing that b4 you start the machine run the hot water to get the right temp. when the water is hot enough then start the machine.

I have soap build up in the dishwasher. The dishes aren't getting completly clean. Ran load today twice and they didn't look any better.


Most likely causes are:

Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)

Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.

New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.

Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.

If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.

Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.

Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.

Hope this help. Good luck.

My maytag will not clean the dishes. I have cleaned out the water tubes, I have checked the hot water. all it does when you run a cycle it leaves the dishes dry and the detergent is not being used.

Remove filter, drain sump out with cooking syringe to have a closer look you may well have some broken glass stuck between those fins or food stuff. That cover can also be removed with a T10 or T20 (Starhape) screw driver for a thorough search.Hope this helps

Bottom water sprayer is not going round


Hello Joannekirk9,
I used to work at Miele in the technical services department. The most likely cause of your problem is the jets on the spray arm are clogged with soap build up or debris.
Solution - Try cleaning out the bottom spray arm jets with a toothpick and then running the dishwasher through a short cycle like normal or china crystal setting. You may also periodically do this with about 1 liter of vinegar to clean out the stainless steel tub once every 6 months to prolong the life of the dishwasher. The vinegar acts as a really good cleaning agent. Also, When using soap use 2 tablespoons of powder solution only!!! Oversudsing is the biggest problem I have seen with these dishwashers. If you are still having a problem contact Miele technical support. They are always extremely helpful. I also have a G832sci and has been great

The top wash arm does not move on my Kenmore Dishwasher model #66515894100. How can I fix this??


Not familiar with this specific model, but I had a similar problem where the water jet slots in the dishwasher's top spray arm were blocked by food debris. The filters were nylon and had started to disintegrate, and when water was recirculated debris was pumped round & blocked the jets. Suggest check your filters are ok/seating properly & then check the jets are not clogged. My spray arm came off easily to enable me to clean it out.

My Bosch dishwasher model #SHU43C05UC/14 drains well and has enough water(I replaced the inlet water valve already),but not washing the dishes clean especially the top rack.What could be wrong?


open machine when running and check both spray arms rotating - you will get a bit of water out. if spray arms not rotating, usual cause is debris in the arms. the spray arms only rotate by water jetting from angled jets at the end of the arms. take them out and make sure all debris removed
