Hi,

There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

It could be a water valve problem.

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

Tools required:

Adjustable wrench

Multi-Screwdriver

Pliers

Step 1. Disconnect the dishwasher from its power source.

Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful.

CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the repair.

Step 2. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. This is usually underneath the kitchen sink or in the basement or crawlspace near the location of the dishwasher. Pliers may be helpful here.

Note: If there are no shut-off valves, you must shut the water off at the main water supply valve for your home.

Step 3. Remove the lower panel(s) of the dishwasher. These are usually held by 2 to 4 screws at the upper and lower corners of the panel(s).

The inlet valve is usually near the front of the dishwasher. Attached to the valve you’ll see: 2 or 4 wires, the water supply line from the house and the water feed line that goes to the dishwasher.

Step 4. Remove the household water supply line from the valve. The line is usually secured with a brass compression nut. The water supply line is usually copper or braided stainless steel.

CAUTION: Water supply line may be hot.

Step 5. Remove the fitting from the valve the water supply line was attached to. This fitting may be very difficult to remove. It may help to put the valve into a vice in order to remove the fitting. If you cannot remove it, replace it. The fitting is not an appliance part but a plumbing part that is available at most hardware stores.

Step 6. Remove the screws holding the valve to the dishwasher frame.

Step 7. Label the wires to the valve so you’ll be sure to reattach them correctly.

Step 8. Remove the wires from the valve.

Step 9. Remove the clamp on the black rubber water discharge tube and pull the tube off of the valve.

Step 10. Reinstall the old fitting (or a replacement fitting if necessary) onto the new valve the water supply line was attached to. Use Teflon tape or pipe joint compound as a thread sealant. Make this fitting tight to prevent leaks. Make sure that the fitting points in the same direction as the old one so that the water supply line will meet up with it properly.

Step 11. Install the new valve in the reverse order of the removal instructions.

Note: The water supply line is under high pressure. Be sure to tighten the fittings properly.

Step 12. Turn on the water to the machine, and check for and correct any leaks.

Step 13. Reinstall the access panel(s). Restore the power to the dishwasher and test.

Note: You may have to let the dishwasher run a few minutes before it reaches the next water fill cycle.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

Clubmaster shower not holding temperature. Hot water not coming through.


There's only there things that are clubmaster, a shower head, and two hand held sprayers.

They all spray water, they don't heat water.

Did someone install a new part, the one that's behind the wall ?

If they did, most have a safety so people don't get burnt and they need to be adjusted.

Low pressure coming through the sprayers


Hello Skip,

Basically ensure water supply lines are properly sized (at least 3/8") not kinked and that supply valve is completely open. These also require a minimum of 20PSI, so ensure water pressure is to specification.

I could copy and paste all of this, however the GE troubleshooting site likely includes your solution: http://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=17395

I hope this helps.

Water not spraying out hard enough


Check water inlet valve (solenoid) for a clogged inlet screen and for proper operation (ensure full opening of the valve); check the main(undersink) water connection for an obstruction or partially closed valve, and check the lines/tubes throughout for obstructions - scale, collapsed line, etc.

Back windshield wiper is working but no water coming out.front side are working fine.what causes it,not to have water at the back?


Your washer system could be low on water, the pump that pumps water to the rear sprayer could be bad or the connector could be loose, the hose to the rear sprayer could be busted or the rear head could be clogged.
There can be many things affecting your sprayer... goodluck!

My dishes are not coming clean, grit and particles are stick to the bottom of the glasses when cycle is finished. Would this be a filter problem?


My wife had the same problem which was fixed by changing detergent and appeared to be caused by hard water. Make sure the screen/filter in the bottom area is clean. It may help to run an empty cycle with detergent and white vinegar to remove hard water deposits from the screen/filter. Hope this helps!

Upper rack sprayers not working on LG ldf7811 dish washer


Check the pump out. Even though the Hose is and tubes are clear it does not necessarily mean that the pump is not pumping water to the top sprayer. One way you can do this is take off the upper spray tube and lay it in a glass or bowl and turn on your machine for a minute or so to get the water flowing if it flows then I would take off the spray assembly itself and make sure that there is no blockage on the bearing race

Dishwasher is running but no water is coming out


Make sure that you have enough water pressure from your tap. If pressure is okay check the door to make sure it is closing and latching properly. If the water is making it through the hose(s) but not actually spraying internally you may have a broken water pump, or a clog ie. calcium build in the lines. Try just cold water too and see if that makes any difference.
