Hi, my Danby DDW621WDB portable dishwasher is not cleaning/not working properly. I just found out that the sprayer arm is NOT moving at all. I don't know why? Any idea? how to fix etc? THANKS.


The water sprayer rotates counter clockwise, so small bowls should face away from you and saucers/plates should face to the right. Make sure the sprayer spins freely when off.

Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

Lg dishwasher top rack sprayer gets no water and not not spraying, middle rack sprayer gets water but not spinning. Bottom rack works fine


Check and make sure the tubes that go into the back of the dishwasher are aligned. Sometimes they get out of place.

Bottom sray spinner doesn't spin. Computer and


Make sure that the spray bar when lifted by the water pressure is NOT hitting the dish rack OR has excessive friction. Test by manually lifting and turning.

Also the jets must exit at an angle to provide the torque.

It is filling and running but the water is not


Could be two different things -- either the pump is not moving water through the sprayer arm, or the sprayer arm isn't free to spin around.
I've fixed one of each in the past year, so either is reasonable.

First, check the easy one -- the sprayer arm.
Open the dishwasher and pull the bottom tray forward so you can reach the sprayer arm.
Reach in and try to spin it around by hand. It should move freely, and if you flick it around, it should spin a full turn around before stopping.
If it's unable to move at all, then look for something stuck like a fork or plastic bag.
If it moves, but very quickly stops spinning, it might be a foreign object or it might need a new sprayer arm assembly. The one I got this year was $38 including shipping.

If the sprayer arm is free and easy to move, then check the water pump:
Start the dishwasher and listen. When it's done filling and sounds like the wash cycle, quickly unlock and open the door.
It shouldn't spray water in your face, but there should be lots of water dripping from the racks and the top (and the dishes, if it's loaded when you do this test!)

If not, then the problem is either a failed main pump or a blocked pump, and the repair will be a bit more money and a lot more time.

If this helps, be sure to click the thumbs-up to tell me so!

Top sprayer wont spin . dishwasher goes through cycles and only partially cleans. bottom sprayer does spin.


The sprayers are not powered but rely on the water pressure to spin them. If it's not spinning it could be
the spinner isn't engaging in the top rack as you slide it in
blocked jets on the spray arm
blocked feedpipe to the spray arm
faulty pump

Most dishwashers are fairly easy to dismantle to check the first few
