Lower spray arm does not spray or turn. I know this because I have run the machine several times and the inside of items on lower rack are still dry on the inside. Also, the soap door is opening but the soap is not being washed out of dispenser by lower spray. I have removed lower arm and cleaned it. I have also disassembled the filter assembly to make sure it is clean. No obvious residue built up. Help!!

Just open the machine ( only if you are comfortable with this) and take the sump assy out as a whole.
Than open it up and look at the drawings. It will come to you as you are going in to it. Otherwise ask a friend with a little technical knowledge to help you.
The drawings and parts lists should help you

    ok Check if the motor assys work. ie by putting 120 current on them. if they turn they work . If not they should be replaced.

    there is a micri switch in it.

    Check this with an ohm meter. in open position 0 ohms in closed infinit resistance or vice versa. one position should give you no resistance.

    Check the impellers if clean and free moving. Make sure you get a new seal though.

    Good luck

Du1145xtpq top spray, and upper spray arm don't


sounds like the chopper is plugged or broken. remove the lower spray arm by holding tab with a set of plyers and turn spray arm counter clockwise. then where the middle spray arm attaches at the back of tub remove screw. turn the housing on pump to the right side of the machine( its easier to pull top rack out a bit so that whole housing can move) it will turn a little bit to be released from top of pump. then take out the torx screws that hold the housing and filter on. in the sump there will be one or two more smaller torx screws remove those and remove coverings to the chopper. check to see if the mesh is plugged with food and other things. clean. also check to see if blade turn with the motor impeller. if not then the chopper needs to be replaced. good luck

There is a kind of grinding noise.


The most common reason for a grinding noise on an LG dishwasher is debris getting stuck (rather than ground up in the build in disposal.)

To resolve, remove the approximately 9 screws on the filter assembly in the sump area. You will need to remove the lower spray arm to get the filter out. Grab the spray arm and lift up and out.

Use a flashlight to inspect the entire area, especially in the rear area that has the valve that alternated sending water from the lower spray arm to the upper spray arms. I bet you fill find something lodged in there. Please be careful of broken glass as it can be almost invisible in water that remains in the sump area.

Please post back here what you find, OK?

Hi I have a Kenmore model 13742k. The dishes in the upper tray are not getting cleaned. The upper spray arm is not circulating. I dissassembled the components from the base leading up to the spray arm...


The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable shutting off the power to the dishwasher, do so.
Good luck!

Whirlpool Dishwasher Model GU1200XT


Check the upper spray arm for debris plugging the spray holes, if clean then pull off lower spray arm and filter screen, and clean and remove any debris found in the sump, check the disposal blades as well. You will need a torx style screwdriver to remove the sump screen on this unit. You can buy a set for under $10 at your local hardware store.

How do i remove cover on food chopper? kenmore 665 the problem is top shelf dishes not getting clean. looking to clean out bottom area,thanks


Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it.
Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier.
Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.

I have a kenmore 665 dishwasher where the spary arms do not spin.


  • First, check water level. Start machine, wait until the machine begins main wash. Open the door, the water level should be just below the heater element. If too low replace inlet valve.
  • If you can't hear the wash motor running or is just humming, the motor may be bad.
  • To check if the food chopper is blocked or broken;
  1. Remove lower spray arm by holding the arm and rotating the spray arm retainer.
  2. In the back of the tub, unclip or remove the screw from the upper spray arm supply tube.
  3. Rotate the lower spray arm support to the right while disconnecting the supply tube from it.
  4. Remove the four torx screws from the sump cover, remove assembly.
  5. There may be a primary filter in the left side of the sump, if so, remove the torx screw and the filter.
  6. On the right side there is the chopper assembly cover. Remove the torx screw and cover to expose the chopper.

Hope everything goes well for you,

Regards

Richard

Spray arm not attached


You may have stripped the threads on the spray arm or spray arm support. I believe the threads are reverse-threaded and since they are plastic, can easily be stripped if turned in the wrong direction. This has happened to me before. The solution is to replace the lower wash arm and spray arm support. You can find the parts at repairclinic.com. Just type in you model number and look for item numbers 830883 (spray arm support) and 9040141 (lower wash arm). You may also want to check out searspartsdirect.com as well. The parts will be located under the "Lower Washarm and Strainer Parts" section. The two sites do offer comparable pricing. Post back if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
