The upper arm is free spinning by hand, but from all indications, it is not spinning. Water is flowing freely and drain is excellent. Is the upper arm problem a major repair.

Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and youl'll need a Torx driver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

My dinner plate stops the arm rotating, why? model fdud4812


Both upper and lower washing arms operate on the water pressure and angle of water flowing thru them.
Pressure provided by water pump.

Just about anything that contacts the rotating arm can stop it.
Best thing to do is re-arrange items in dishwasher so that arms can spin freely.
One can always spin washing arms by hand to ensure proper clearance.

Hope this helps...

Upper and lower spray arms are not spinning


Check that the arms spin freely when spun by hand, then check the outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. It may also cause water to continue dripping onto dried dishes after the the drying cycle has stopped.

Top spray arm does not turn during wash or turns slightly..it is free of clogs and spins freely by hand


It will spin freely by hand, but needs to spray water out of the jets at the trailing edge of the arm. Check inside the arm for blockage and make sure that water is getting to the upper arm from the pump.

Dishwasher is not cleaning top rack


If the top rack is not getting clean, then either the spray arm holes are slightly plugged and not allowing enough water flow to the machine. The water coming from the arms also makes the arms moved in a circular direction which also helps in cleaning. Either the arm is plugged and not allowing water flow or the arm is stuck and not rotating. I would use a toothpick and clean all the holes first. Then try it. Try and spin arm by hand and make sure it spins very easy and freely. If not, replace it or dismantle it and clean it really good so there are no clogs and it can spin easily.

Upper rack dishes not coming clean.


You could try running it with the upper arm removed, just so you could be sure that the pressure is not getting to that point - unless you are absolutely sure the upper arm holes/channels are all clear then descale it overnight with some vinegar - just might clear something. if there is obviously only a little flow of water then perhaps you could try getting vinegar into the supply pipe using a basting bulb/syringe or similar - again leave overnight and you may get lucky. The next thing would be to take the machine apart so you could follow this hose through to the pump - undo it from the pump and blow through it or see if you can get a piece of wire in it from the pump end. try vinegar again. check the pump outlet for blockage. Hope this helps :)

Upper arm does not spin


No I don't believe its the pump. I believe the lower spray arm is possibly split open on the side causing a loss of presure and flow to the upper arm and overloading the door seal. As well the loss of flow to the upper arm will resulted in it turning too slow.
