Can you rotate it manually when you have it opened? Is it damage or do you notice physical damage on it?

    Cleaning the Spray Arms
    It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly as hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings. To remove the
    spray arm, screw off the nut to take out the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the arm. Wash the arms in soapy, warm
    water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace after rinsing them thoroughly.

    Cleaning the Filters
    Filter assembly
    For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned.
    The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recirculated
    during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in
    the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water.
    To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup handle in the upward direction. The entire filter
    assembly should be cleaned at least once a month.
    To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter
    parts as shown in the figure a t left and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher,
    positioning in its seat and pressing downward.
    The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may
    reduce the performance level of the appliance and may damage dishes and utensils.

Why is the top sprayer is not rotating?


This dishwasher uses a pulsating mechanism to push water to each of the spary arms forcing water alternatingly in each arm. This ensures a strong spray is maintained for cleaning.
The pulsating action is obtained through a ball (see item 58 in this diagram). It is possilble that this ball is either stuck or is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Indesit di620 dishwasher not spraying water from arms


Hi, you may want to try looking at all the holes in the spray arms. If you see anything blocking a hole, use the tweezers and remove the stuff.
Remove the bottom spray arm and check for items in the water delivery hole.Check the lower spray tower that is connected to the bottom rack. Make sure all rotating parts rotate properly. Look underneath to make sure nothing is stuck in the tower. Remove any stuff stuck that is preventing rotation or clogging the tower.

Both spray arms of my DU943PWKQ0 do not turn or spray. The motor is moving and the it drains without problem. During the wash and rinse cycle I can hear the sound of water, however it doesn't clean at...


Try rotating the spray arms by hand. It should rotate freely. If possible clean the arm rotating place by removing them.

Arms rotate by by pump pressure only. finally check the water pump also.

Top spray arm does not rotate, is mechanically


try checking the water holes in the arm, as when they spray out the arm turns. If they are blocked in any way it does not turn, try using a needle to check they are clear.

Will not clean dishes on the upper rack


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

The diswasher arm does not rotate or spray water


Check the small holes on the spray arm. They are most likely plugged. (candy wrappers, tooth picks, popcorn or watermelon seeds, you name it.) Sometimes you can clear the holes out, other times it is just as easy (and not very expensive) to replace the spray arm(s). List your model number if you need part numbers or instructions on removing spray arm.

Bottom Spray Arm Not Rotating


check to make sure you are getting enough water entering the dishwasher. If you add a liter of water, does the water arm turn then? If so, you may have a faulty water valve that is not allowing enough water to enter to turn the spray arm. Hope that solves it :)

My Bosch dishwasher model #SHU43C05UC/14 drains well and has enough water(I replaced the inlet water valve already),but not washing the dishes clean especially the top rack.What could be wrong?


open machine when running and check both spray arms rotating - you will get a bit of water out. if spray arms not rotating, usual cause is debris in the arms. the spray arms only rotate by water jetting from angled jets at the end of the arms. take them out and make sure all debris removed

... calling Master_Tech Bosch Dishwasher SHU43C07UC


Hello Mary, I checked on your dishwasher and what you have is a pressure fill dishwasher. This unit has a pressure switch to make sure the water level is correct. When the dishwasher is full of water (the indention that is around 2 inches in from the side walls and front) is where the water level should be out to. If the water isn''t out this far, then the pressure switch is shutting off early and not filling properly. I read your entire essay, it is perfect, so this sounds like an issue of either not enough water, or the circulation pump impeller has separated and not creating enough water pressure at the wash arms. Since you stated that you removed and cleaned the filters, that shouldn't be the issue. That is normally where I find this issue at is clogged filters, espically in hard water. I have seen results in the pass where too much detergent was used causing the pressure switch to shut off early. In those cases filling the detergent dispenser with cooking oil and running the longest cycle removes the excess detergent. It is proteins that the detergent is designed to break down. So quit worring about your water pipes, the issue is with the dishwasher. Hope this helps.
