Not draining water and water does not shoot out of sprayer arm

Hi-

My dishwasher is not draining the water. The washer arm is not spraying the water on dishes. When I open it after it runs its steamy but the dishes are dry and the water just sits in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Frigidaire dishwasher is not spraying water from bottom


From what you have described, sounds like the sprayer arms are possibly loose or being held into place and can't rotate, by dishware.

I had the same problem I own a Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Diverter motor needs to be replaced. The diverter motor is connected to a plate that controls the flow of water to each washer arm. When the plate moves it has holes that align to the proper tube that supplies water to a washer arm. When the diverter motor is broken it is unable to rotate and cannot direct flow of water. When this happens water will only be able to come out of one spray arm in my case the back sprayer or turbo wash. The diverter motor is located under the dish washer and the diverter plate is located under the bottom sprayer arm.

Motor makes noise shortly after starting, makes normal sound level during main body of wash, then makes noise again during what I'm guessing is the rinse cycle. Not sure if it is a pump or motor problem....


Make sure the sprayer arm is turning freely, check for something stuck in the base of the sprayer arm (food or utinsel) preventing it from turning.

Top sprayer not working


Check and clean the filter inside at the bottom of the dishwasher. Make sure the spray arm rotates freely and that the holes are not clogged. If the dishwasher has a collapsable tower to shoot water into the upper spray arm, make sure it is not stuck and that nothing is blocking it from rising.

My 6 yr old Kitchen Aid dishwasher is leaving food residue


After checking all sprayer arms for clearance, and checking heating element and discharge pump, the problem was solved by replacing the small sprayer arm at the top of the washer. This small arm had popped off some time ago - obviously the water pressure was excessive for the small and unimpressive fastener. Luckily we had saved this piece, which I refastened with a strong aluminum non-corroding small bolt. Presto - now the water distribution is back to design specs, with sufficient water coming out under pressure from the mid level arm. Lesson: always look for the simplest cause first with the simplest solution. TCA

Water won't spray


Sounds like whatever caused the clogged drain may also have clogged the sprayer arm.  If it is clogged it will not spin.  Remove the arm and if it is clogged see if you can clean it out.

Dishwasher does not clean items on top shelf.


Check the upper spray arm holes for debris that may be plugging up the spray arm. If clean remove the lower spray arm and filter screen and clean out any debris in the sump.

Dishwasher not washing


By chance have you cleaned the spray arm out lately? There could be something blogging the water from getting into the arm. In most dishwashers, the arm only spins because water pressure makes it spin.
