Kenmore 587.1616 - upper sprayarm doesn't move -

Hi, trouble with upper sprayarm... tried most everything.
a). no obstructions/blockage of sprayarm
b). cleaned out base (gook removed), could not actually get to chopper... but got to rotating axle
c). pressure to machine okay... (not sure about top)
d). roof entry of water aligned with funnel water intake (activating upper spray arm)
e). worked fine recently
f). used high power hose (outside) and sprayed right into sprayarm... did not rotate (although it was free to do so ... this confused me)... water just dribbled out... yet no known damage to spray arm.

any ideas? got to area of chopper but did not get to actual rotating blade. pulled out lots of hair! but chopper axle does freely rotate by hand.

any ideas? had to ask the guru... thanks so much in advance. pete

Won't drain completely


Check the inlet to the pump for blockage, make sure that the outlet pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe and that the pump is actually operating. Check the filter to see if it is not clogged or obstructed. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine once more before using it again.

Apparently no water pressure to upper washing arm.


Hi sounds like there is a blockage in the circulation pump which causes low water pressure as it cannot push the water around. You would have to remove the unit and turn on it's side and remove the circulation pump to clear the blockage.

Also check all the holes in your spray arms for any blockages. Best to remove each arm and clean in the sink. Any blockages causes the arms not to turn.

Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

Suspect blockage top rotating washer arm does not spin


Both arms (upper and lower) are fed from the back of the machine, when you close the door the arms make a water tight seal with the pumped water in your washer.
Check to see that when the machine is full that both the arms will turn with very little pressure. (watch out for forks sticking out of the cuttlery tray etc.)
You can usually clear a blockage by putting a bag over the back of the arm that engages with the pumped water on the arm that "IS WORKING" this will increase the pressure to the arm that is not working usually freeing the obstruction.

Kenmore dishwasher model # 665.15522000 leaking badly


Hi, Make sure the jets in the spray arm ore not plugged at all. Check the black bellows on top the lower spray arm and see if it has a split in it. Let me know if these help or if I can assist you further.
