LG Dishwasher water flow is weak coming out of the lower spray arm. No water coming out of the upper spray arm. I changed the water inlet valve, and there isn't any difference.


There is a possibility the water pressure itself is low from the kitchen line or the dishwasher is set at incorrect water pressure setting and does not collect enough water based on the flow time of inlet valve. If you hear the wash motor cut in then there is not enough water in the base to start pumping it to through the arms.

My dinner plate stops the arm rotating, why? model fdud4812


Both upper and lower washing arms operate on the water pressure and angle of water flowing thru them.
Pressure provided by water pump.

Just about anything that contacts the rotating arm can stop it.
Best thing to do is re-arrange items in dishwasher so that arms can spin freely.
One can always spin washing arms by hand to ensure proper clearance.

Hope this helps...

No water pressure.. bad pump or motor?


Try filling water from the front manually. Check whether every thing works normal.

If works OK, check your water inlet for free flow.Try the inlet hose externally by flushing water through the hose.

Check whether any air lock. If air lock noticed, air will flow in broken streams.Flowt will become OK after some time.

Try now in the machine by connecting.

Top spray arm in dishwasher will not spray


poor water pressure due to a clogged flowplate assy if the flowplate assy is not clogged with gook and hard water then you may need a new motor, a weak motor may not push the water well enough to get up to the top
first check entire flow are impeller etc

Very low pressure getting to spray arms


I removed the lower spray arm, and then the filter. I found that there was a lot of buildup under the filter area. I scraped the buildup off. I found that it was restricting the input of water flow to the pump

LG LDS5811WW Low pressure out of spray arms


On the LG LDF xxxx dishwasher family, the Vario feature uses a motor/check valve to switch between "full power" cleaning from _either_ the lower or the upper spray arms, never at the same time. So, not seeing the upper arm spin during the lower arm spinning is standard operating procedure.

But back to your problem. Step one would be to remove the filter assembly again and make certain that there is nothing (debris, broken glass) blocking the white areas where the check valve rotates to switch between upper/lower spray arms. A blockage there ~could~ cause impotent spraying/cleaning.

If there is no blockage and the impeller remains in good shape, suspect a failing wash pump motor. Try to isolate the noise to that motor.

Watch for error codes on the display and report back what you find, OK?

Good Luck!

Poor cleaning. don't think the pump is getting enough pressure to the arms?


Check if water is flowing into the machine with sufficient pressure.
Check water arms orifices and attachments.
If it is not that check for a blockage on impeller lines.

Hi I have a Kenmore model 13742k. The dishes in the upper tray are not getting cleaned. The upper spray arm is not circulating. I dissassembled the components from the base leading up to the spray arm...


The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable shutting off the power to the dishwasher, do so.
Good luck!

Upper arm not working


I had similar problem. the problem was due to having not enough water pressure in the line to the upper srapy arm. Did the following:

1. removed debris from sump assembly;
2. removed wash motor and clean clogged separation screen; and
3. sealed with Teflon tape manifold and probe manifold of the upper sray arm.

If you google for 'whirlpool 8178022' you should be able to get KD-12 repair manual.

Goof luck.
