Inside on the back of the tub, there should be a grate with screws that come out. Check for obstructions around the pump area. There may be food debris settling in the sump pump area

Why doesn't upper sray arm work?


  • Improper loading or over loading of dishes and glass ware that blocks the spray arm from rotating; check your user's guide for proper loading methods.
  • the holes in the spray arm can be plugged from food particles or other debris, like coffee grounds; remove the spray arm and clean out the holes; run water through the arm to verify there is no blockage.
  • check to see if the spray arm became disconnected from the feed tube or the feed tube from the water inlet feed hose.; reconnect hose or tighten down on hose clamps
  • check for any filter blockages; remove food particles and debris
  • the tub itself could be under filling, because of a restricted water inlet valve; pour 1 to 2 quarts of water into the tub of the dishwasher and run it; if the performance improves, replace the water inlet valve with a new one; DO NOT try to repair the old valve- it will fail once it's taken apart and put back together.
  • the circulating motor drives a water pump that rotates an impeller, which creates water pressure to go through the washer arms and out the holes. The jetting action of the water pressure exiting the spray arm holes propels the arm to spin...if the water pump impeller is worn, damaged, or impeded by food debris, the cleaning action will be greatly diminished; inspect and clean or replace the impeller if necessary.
  • If the aforementioned trouble shoot and repair methods do not correct the problem, then a more in depth diagnostic check will have to be done by a qualified repair technician to check switches that controls the water/drain pump, (if it is a dual action model for example); to verify if the switch or the pump itself has failed.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Professional Series runs loud now and the dishes aren't clean when it finishes its cycle.


Check the water supply line for kinks, check bottom strainer/drain inside to remove particles/trash blocking water from exiting to pump washer motor, be sure no items block rotation of washer heads. Good luck.

Dishwasher leaks from bottom left corner


If its just that corner check that it is level (if not leak could be somewhere else)

Then check your hoses and valves for holes or leaks (try putting some food dye water when running to see easier

Most likely a loose hose connector or hole in the rubber hose

Dishwasher Basics The main parts of a dishwasher are: Control mechanism
The control mechanism is located inside the door behind the control panel. Many units use a simple electro-mechanical system: a timer determines how long each part of the cycle lasts and activates the proper function at the proper time (such as the detergent dispenser, wash spray and draining functions). Units that are more expensive might have a computerized control system. Modern units also have a door latch that must be closed for the unit to run. Some also have child safety locks. Intake valve
This is where water from the home's water supply enters the dishwasher. The unit's pump doesn't pump the water into the basin – when the intake valve opens, water pressure drives the water into the unit. Pump
An electric motor powers the pump. During the pump cycle, the pump forces water up into the spray arms. During the drain cycle, the pump directs the water into the drain hose. The motor-pump assembly is mounted beneath the basin, in the center of the dishwasher. There are two main types of pump:
  • Reversible
    These pumps switch between pumping water to the spray arms and pumping water to the drain by reversing the direction of the motor. Reversible pumps are usually vertically mounted. dishwasher-11.jpg
    -->Reversible pump

  • Direct-drive
    The motor runs in one direction, so the direction of flow is switched from spray arms to drain by a solenoid that opens and closes the appropriate valves or switches one hose connection to another. Non-reversible pumps are usually horizontally mounted. dishwasher-12.jpg
    -->Direct-drive pump

Dishwashers can be installed in either a portable or a permanent configuration. Portable units have finished sides and top that can be used as a countertop. When not in use, the machine sits in place next to the wall. When it's time to run a cycle, the unit can be rolled on casters over to the sink, where it connects to the faucet and plugs into a nearby outlet. In a permanent installation, the dishwasher goes underneath the existing countertop and bolts into place. Hoses underneath the kitchen sink connect directly to the hot water line and the drain line, and the unit usually plugs in under the sink as well. Both types of installation require a 120-volt grounded line.

Water does not drain from the bottom. I understand that a small amount is normal, however, this is not a small amount. Thanks for your help.


It worked for me .I have a danby countertop dishwasher.
I took off the metal top
I looked under on the left side to find the pump
I took both hoses off the pump and took off the little fan.
i took off the little metal bracket behing the little fan. and unscrewed the little pump to take it out.
the little metal piece that the fan was on wouldn't even move.So i sprayed it down with wd and it started moveing again then a screw fell out.so i found where it went(inside the motor which the fan and metal piece move) got the tweezers and replced it. oiled it some more and put it all back together. Perfect.

Danby DDW396 Spray Arm


The spray arm is controlled by the force of the water. There is no motor running the spray arm. If water is not getting to the spray arm, then it won't spin. It may be plugged with detergent etc. Just a note re. detergent. You shouldn't use hard or caked detergents.

No pressure to drive swing arm.


Check first that no debris is blocking the holes in the spray arm where the water comes out, and clean out the holes. In case it will not solve your problem, it's look like a pump problem (the pump has two functions : drive water to the spray arms and to drain water out the washer). Open the rear panel and listen if the pump works during the wash cycle. In case it doesn't work, it should be replaced. Good luck !
