I have an LG model LDS4821 dishwasher that quit washing clean. Top rack is the dirtiest. Water is hot and bottom drain is clean.


The most likely cause is a blocked or clogged wash arm. Many times when the wash stops the debris blocking the spray will back away. The holes in the arm are aimed to cause the arm to rotate. The clogged hole is usually an outer diameter hole which provides the force for the arm to rotate.

Some upper end washers have a blocked arm sense to alert when arm is blocked.

Careful not to deform the geometry of the hole when removing the debris. Tweezers work the best.

Kenmore 3380957 rev a won't get dishes clean


Make sure that that upper arm is free to turn. Check it while you have dished installed, because sometimes, dishes on the lower rack may stick up too high and hit it. Otherwise, check the back of the water-supply tube attached to that upper rack.... Is it lining up with the water feed port or hole at the backof the dishwasher? Is there a gasket that is either ripped or missing? And check that wash arm carefully.... Might it be split or bent? Are the holes on the bottom clear? (Those holes are usually angled to push the arm around; if they are clogged, the arm won't rotate.)

Coffee leaking into grounds drawer


On top of the Brew Group is an arm that dispenses the coffee into the cup. Did you remove the arm? There are two screws that secure the arm to the top of the Brew Group. When you remove the two screws you'll find a spring that's inserted into a hole. Be carefull. There is a ball below the spring in the bottom of the hole. Don't loose it. At the top of the hole where the plate for the arm mounts and covers the hole, there should be an o-ring gasket. If you removed the arm while cleaning and didn't put the o-ring back in, you'll get this problem.

Water goes into the bottom, but it doesn't spray the dishes.


The filter may be clogged. Remove the bottom rack and the bottom spray arm to get access to the filter. It surrounds the arm support. It could lift straight up or you may have to remove screws in the top plate to release it. If the filter is clean and the problem continues then the pump is not working. Also check to make sure the spray arm holes are not clogged and that there is nothing hitting the arm to prevent it moving (like a spoon handle sticking down below the rack.)

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Water leaks out of bottom of washer


The screw in the washer tub, is not a factor in this. I'm not sure what brand of machine you have, but several machines have a fill hose that connects to the outer tub of the machine. Sometimes when a machine gets loaded heavily, during the spin cycle items in the machine can actually knock the fill hose right out of the tub. Then when the machine trys to fill the next time, all the water runs down the outside of the tub and leaks out of the bottom of the machine.
Repair is to open up the machine. You'll need to remove the top cover and that will give you access to the hose/tub connection. It may be as simple as reinserting the hose back into the drum or you may need to replace it if it got too damaged and won't stay in the hole correctly.
If you need specific how to's on opening up the machine, get back to us with the make and model info and we'll be happy to help you open that washer up!

The two rotating spayers, the one at the top and the one at the bottom that pops up, are not working. How can I fix this? This is a GE Potscrubber 800 Dishwasher.


First you need to see if you are getting enough water. Let it fill and then look at the center hub where the spray arm is. The water should be at least to the top of that hub. Also you can clean out the sump which is located in the right rear corner of the tub. Usually there is a cover over this which is easily removed with a few screws. Reach in with a gloved hand as there may be glass down there and clean it out. Also look at the spray arms themselves to see if the holes are clogged. You can usually clean these holes with a toothpick or similar object. If the water fill is too low, you may to need to clean or replace the water valve which is located behind the lower access panel usually on the left side.

Kenmore Quiet3 not cleaning top rack, now stopped cleaning all


The problem is likely that the cutter/chopper filter is plugged. This reduces or eliminates water flow to the cleaning arms.
Solution:
Remove dish baskets
Remove bottom arm - Rotate the centre post until arm is free to be lifted out.
Remove conduit to top arm(s) - Remove 2 screws, one at top and one at back. Rotate whole conduit 45 deg right and lift off of centre post.
Remove bottom plastic assembly. - Remove 4 screws and lift off.
Remove cutter cap. - Remove 1 screw at front left. Lift off plastic cap. Remove cutter filter. It is on a spring loaded pin. Pull cutter blade foreword and lift filter disc straight up. Clean filter disc thoroughly
Reassemble!
