Spray arm for Maytag dishwasher

The spray arms on my dishwasher have "stuff" inside them and it is near impossible to get it out through the little holes. Is there a way to pull apart these arms? I have a Maytag Jet Clean II MDB7600aw.

    Yeah, that's what we have been doing but seems like there should be an easier way to do this. Thanks

Maytag free standing dishwasher. The machine fills fine, goes through entire cycles with the spray arms spinning but the water does not pump through the spray arms.


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

Upper arm not getting any water


Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and you'll need a Torx screwdriver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Top spray arms dont work.


Most likely you have debris blocking the holes in the spray arms. The spray arms can be removed and cleaned out in your sink. (blocked holes in the lower spray arm arm almost impossible to clean out)

Dishes not clean. Lower spray arm possibly not moving.


Remove the lower basket so you can access the lower arm.

Does it spin freely? If not, remove and clean the rotating point. Make sure the spray nozzles are not clogged and there as no chunks of stuff inside the spray arm.
