You will probably find that this is because there is not enough water pressure going through the jets.
1. Take off the top rotery arm by unscrewing the nut and then it can be released from the basket by giving a twist and pushing backwards. once off check that all the jets are clear and that the small plastic washer is OK re assemble and ensure that is spins freely.
2. if this does not help then the problem may be with the recirculating pump underneath. Replace the capacitor that is attached to it. This drastically improved my dishwasher and now works better than when it was new.
3. if this does not work then you are on your own as I have no orther suggestions.

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-

Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher spray arms won't turn


Have you tried tighten the spray arms? They may have come lose at the fittings so need to be tightened up. You can normally tighten them with your hand. Take any traps/filters out of the dishwasher and clean them.

Dishes are always dirty, maybe even dirtier after running dishwasher. has hot water, lower arm moves.


Check the outlet holes on both spray arms for clogs. If necessary, remove the spray arms, clean out the holes and empty out any debris inside the spray arms. Verify that the upper arm is turning also.

If the machine does not drain completely at the end of the cycle, the pump drain outlet is partially blocked and you are retaining dirty water for the next load.

You may have a chemistry problem - inferior soap, empty rinse agent dispenser, or extremely hard water.

Improper arrangement of the dishes can prevent some from being washed. Make sure no dish blocks the spray to another.

Water not pumping out spray arms.


clog in the arm. It should spin due to water flow.

Remove the arm. Usually a tow part arm (top and bottom). Or a central screw with cover plate.

Look for a clog and remove.

If a central arm in the middle of the machine the clog can be in the pipe supplying the water. Again take apart and look for a clog.

They are not belt or gear driven. Simple water driven parts only. If the water is flowing and not leaking under the machine you should be OK with a simple clog somewhere.

Wash cycle


Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation). Good luck !!
