Why is the top spray arm not turning


All of the water coming to the upper spray arm comes through the feed tube. If the feed tube is blocked or the probe flapper is hung open, water will not flow properly to the upper spray arm. Be sure that when you push in the upper rack the manifold probe is in position in the feed tube. Try adding more water in the tub to see if the upper spray arm starts rotating. Other possibilities; low water charge, cracked spray arm & poor wash pump performance.

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.

Spray arms not working


Hi frustrated in Raleigh,
I understand that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, even after you have cleaned the screens and arms. What might be happening is you are not getting enough water pressure to the dishwasher.
The hot water line to your dishwasher must provide water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers are in operation.
Wait until water use is reduced before starting dishwasher.
If you are still noticing that the spray arms are not moving or spraying water, I would have a local Authorized Technician come out to see what exactly is going on with the spray arms of your dishwasher.

-Best Regards-

Water jet arm does not work water goes into the dishwasher dishwasher drains but the arm does not work the dishes are not getting sprayed with hot water the dishes are not getting cleaned the soap in the...


In most units, the movement of the arm is powered by the water. If the water does not come out of the arms, check the filter for debris or the arm itself. This could also be caused by mechanical issues. You may want to inspect the arms itself for loose connections or worn out parts.

Sprayer arm is not spinning, water comes up through weakly.


your water supply is too low. he watervalve (inlet valve) may be clogged. With insufficent supply you get a low fill and not enough water to fully enage the pump's power.

Bravo one water on tiller arm


Assuming "tiller arm" is the steering arm (connects to steering actuator and disappears into transom plate, lay on top of engine - not running - and have a friend turn steering wheel, black arm that is coming out of transom and moving is steering arm), problem is most likely the seal on the vertical steering shaft. This shaft connects the steering arm to the gimble ring. Problem can be confirmed by visually checking for water coming from just below the steering arm with boat in water, or residue starting in same area with boat out of water. If this is confirmed to be the problem, repair is quite extensive. Entire transom assembly needs to be taken apart - sometimes requires removal of engine - then the seal can be replaced and the transom assembly put back together. Other items to check in the area would be the wiring for trim sender and limit switch and through hull gear lube fitting (if boat is new enough).

Water coming out of bottom during run cycle


Your lower spray arm is broken, allowing the water the hit the door where it shouldn't thus causing the water to blow out of the door gasket. To remove you turn the center plastic screw in the middle of the spray arm clockwise while holding the spray arm stationary. You can obtain the spray arm either at you local appliance dealer or at repair clinic dot com.

Figidare dishwasher


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve my crusty dishes problem, but that may have something to do with the soap we're using. We're going to try changing that next.

  This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time.  It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles.  If water comes out arms but arms won't turn,  check all holes in arms.  It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn.   If arms spin freely by hand,  it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. 
  Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.

if no water is coming into the machine at all it is a problem with the water valve, not your spray arms. as far as the spray arm goes I need the manufacture and model number to explain what to do.
