Hi there,

Well first of all tell us the Model number of your dishwasher? Anyway problem seems due to motor, as motor bearings wear out, or need to be grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Is there any sign of leak in your dishwasher? Please reply......

Thanks

LDF7932ST LG dishwasher top and bottom arms not turning. Diagnostic test mode "power+spray+ rinse" does not work.


I put a new lower spray arm and very little water comes out of it. There is quite a bit of water that comes out of the middle and top. The top does not spin but has quite a bit of water and the middle spins really good.

I own a GE Profile Trition quietpower III GSD5940F00SS dishwasher. The dishes, particularly the mugs and cups, are not getting clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged. You can remove them by loosening the screws holding them in place. Flush them with the sprayer at your sink. If you can SEE residue (parts of paper labels, bone fragments, fruit peel pieces, etc) remove them with a tweezer.Reinstall the spray arms and see if that works.
Three more ideas:
(1) run a cycle without dishes OR detergent and use 1/4 cup of white vinegar instead. This will break down soil and "gunk" and help your dishwasher run more effectively.
(2) use an old toothbrush and clean the underside of the door INSIDE the dishwasher. The door will be open and you just brush the bottom of the open door on the INSIDE of the dishwasher. A lot of "crud" gathers there and can be redeposite on your dishes. We seldom think to check that area.
(3) the pipe that carries water to the upper sprayer arm MUST fit against the outlet in the back of the dishwasher. If it is dislodged or not seated properly, the water won't flow to the upper sprayer arm.
Hope one of these suggestions helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion. Thanks.

The middle arm on my dishwasher (ge Profile) is not turning...the top and bottom are working fine


Had same problem with mine. Actually bought all new middle arm assembly but as I was taking it apart to install new pieces, I noticed so much gunk in the middle swinging mechanism that I assumed that must have been the problem.. I really think the newer dishwashing tablets cause this buildup problem. Anyway, put on all new pieces and started the machine. Long story short, it worked great for about a month and then started doing the exact same thing. THE reason why the middle arm sprayer doesn't spin is that the little holes at each end (the ones that sit underneath and look like they should propel the sprayer arm ) get clogged. I bought some pipe cleaners, bent to an angle where I could come in from the top and pull out through the propellor hole and voila` the sprayer is swinging beautifully again.. I guess the only question I still have is why this started happening three to four years after I purchased the machine. Something somewheres else must not be doing its job.

Middle arm stopped spinning


you may be exactly right. I always start with something simple. spin the spray arm to make sure it goes all the way around with out touching anything. next is the hard partyou would have to take the motor apart and any filters you see and clean out all the debris.

GE Triton arms don't spin


Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
How old is the machine?

Other wise you need hands on service! And a new machine will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You!

GE dishwasher Quiet Pro 3 middle washing arm


Try unscrewing it from the bottom, remove it and give it a clean. If it is full of food it will not turn.
Check the funnel on top of the basket is free of food too.

GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning


I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.

Middle arm of dishwasher not spinning


I'm the one that reported the same problem in November as "Guest". I fixed mine finally. I removed the middle arm again and noticed that the holes that spray a jet ot water causing the arm to turn aren't the ones on top. On the bottom of the arm there's a small hole at each end. I looked and one of the holes had a small piece of crud in it. I had to use the tip of an ice pick to dislodge it back into the arm. I then ran water into the arm several times hoping to get the item completely removed. I never did see anything come out but I then ran water through the arm holding it so the water could run out one end. The piece didn't show up in the hole again so I tried washing it to the other end. It still didn't show up so I guess it must have washed out the first time. It's been 3 or 4 weeks now and the arm is still functioning perfectly. Hard to believe that one little piece of trash can cause so much irritation. Good luck on this being the problem for others.
