Water fills the bottom of dishwasher, lower spray arm still seems to turn/spray but no movement or water coming out of uppoer spray arm. We took apart the lines to see if there was blockage -- none.


If there is no blockage, your pump may need to be rebuilt or replaced. If your machine uses a solenoid valve to control weather the pump is washing or draining. The drain valve may be stuck somewhat open, diverting wash water down the drain. Or the wash valve may be not opening fully. Different machines work in different ways.

Dishes and glasses not clean, seems like spray bars not turning water seems plenty ,no clogged filters


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes are cloudy and have soap residue. Have cleaned upper &lower spray arm often, as good as posible (find holes plugged). water level & temp. seems normal . Water intake screen appears clean


Clean the spray arm jet holes if they are blocked. Check whether you have filled the rinse-aid dispenser.

Check whether arm turns freely when rotated by hand manually.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly - soap dispenser does not empty. Dishes are not dry


you might have water problem if the unit fill with water but not spray the water all over that can be the problem and it can be fix.
to see if the spray arm is working good - after the unit fill with water and it sound that it start cleaning open it slowly and put the arm in any angle you want then close the door so it can run again , then open again see if it moved .
if it didnt move then ou have a spray unit problem or pump problem , but if it did move look on the spray arm hols you might have food or something got stuck in them, and cleaning them will help .
let me know what you found and i can help you more...

Not cleaning on top rack. Pump, fill tube asm. & spray clean. Has any seen if this issue could be the deverter motor in the pump or the control board?


Just to review, the LG dishwasher family, including the LDS5811 has the Verio motor and the check valve that diverts water from the bottom rack to the top rack.

If the valve is blocked/jammed, this would cause the symptom you describe. The valve is visible from inside the DW after you open it up.

It is also possible that this motor has failed.

I have a Kitchen Aid Superba KUDS24SEBS1. The inlet water pressure is good and the dishwasher fills and starts the wash cycle, however, after the initial spray of water, it seems that all of the water...


when "full" of water, the normal height of level is about 1/2 below the heater assy(large blackish grey coil below he spray arm).. if theres enough water in the unit nad its still not "spraying",its quite possible that your filter/chopper assy is clogged and cant let water through. try removing hte spray arm and under that you will see 5 torx15 screrw holding down top filter plate under there to the left youll see another t15 screw covering hte chopper assy area. claen out sump of debris this may be your issue
