Question about GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher

Top spray arms dont work.

The spray arm under the top rack doesnt seem to spray or at least its not spinning and the one on the ceiling of machine doesnt either. so our glasses come out with dried gritty stuff on them. Is it the pump or a clog or what?

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)

    The lower spray arm can be cleaned. just take it out and go out to your backyard, put the water hose at full blast. 1st reverse clean each spray hole with a back flush and then clean out with hose on the larger intake hole.. save your self $200 and make sure you do the other 2 spray arms in the same way. Oh yeah check middle arm connection fitting to make sure the rubber washer is not missing for the connection when top tray is in the inside postion.. if not the pressure will not be enough, so the top and middle spray arms will not work very well. I am just a financial planner and fix it myself, after 4 visits from the GE repair man and he did not figure it out. This is a 2 hour job with a helper, after you get it out on your floor and have plently of old towels. Cut off the power and hot water First..... God bless...

I found a piece of soft plastic maybe off a jar in my lower spray arm, maybe there is something blocking the hole...I am having the same issue and am trying to figure out how to remove the top sprayer and look inside. Just a guess, but all I can think of for now.

Top water outlet doesn't spin


Not sure of the vintage of your Maytag dishwasher, but this may work for yours.
1. Remove the upper rack by releasing the stop clips on the ends of the rack rail; push the ends of the clips towards center of machine - this may require the help of a small screwdriver.
2. The upper spray arm assembly is mounted to the ceiling of the wash chamber by large (2" diameter) fluted nut that butts right against the ceiling sheet metal. Simply remove that nut by hand, and the whole assembly will come out.
3. Looking into the top of center feed hole, you'll see 4 plastic clip ends holding the 3 pieces together. Use a 1/4# socket or nutdriver to press all 4 clips inward until they come free.
4. The spray arm halves are welded together, so you'll have to clean out any clogs using a pointy tool and some water flushing.
5. Reassembly is the reverse order.
Good luck!

Kenmore Dishwasher #665.16919001dishes on top rack are not getting clean.


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.

The top rack dishes are not being cleaned properly. It seems that the water is not makeing it way throught the feed arm, hence not being feeding the spray arm.

The top two water water arms do not spin


These spray arm will only get water several times in the wash and rinse cycle. They do not turn at the same time the lower (bottom large spray arm under the bottom rack).
There is a chamber that diverts water either to the bottom sprayer or to the top sprayers, not to both at the same time.
If your top spray arms never get water, then there must be an issue with that chamber motor to divert the water. A new sump assembly that has all the new parts.
Good luck.

Middle spray arm not spraying


unlikely that 2 dishwashers would have the same fault but is of course possible
could it be to do with how you are loading? quite common is for a knife or similiar to stick down thro the rack and jam the arm

Top rack not cleaning and spray arm possibly not moving


Hello--our Kenmore Elite has been showing exactly the same symptoms.  Since it's under warranty I had a technician take a look at it, in fact he just finished putting it back together: problem was accumulated food and junk around the inlet filter to the pipe that leads to the upper racks.  You can only get to this area by removing the lower spray arm, filter assembly, etc. until you are looking at the sump/chopper area.  Any clogging should be self evident at that point.  
This would be an easy repair for anyone with a few tools and the willingness to get into it.  Seems to be working very well.  We will be rinsing more thoroughly in the future...
