Hi, Donna, W/D here.

Most all of the washing arms either have a screw type cap, or they pull off. If you go to pull them off, hold your other hand on their attached points to lessen the strain.

You can clean the tips by using a paper clip shaped into an "L" shape, and use it to rake out the material in the slots at the tips. You can also use it to poke the material that might be clogging the nozzles back into the spray arm, and then backwash the spray arm over the sink. Give it a thorough washing, or you'll likely see some of the debris again, plugging either the slots or the nozzle(s).

Best regards, --W/D--

The controls are dead. The only indicator that is lit is the minute pad. The washer will wash but the dishes aren't clean


Please check the pressure pump and the spraying pressure as this can be clogged or faulty. Remove clean and reset

Little water to top rack


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

I own a GE Profile Trition quietpower III GSD5940F00SS dishwasher. The dishes, particularly the mugs and cups, are not getting clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged. You can remove them by loosening the screws holding them in place. Flush them with the sprayer at your sink. If you can SEE residue (parts of paper labels, bone fragments, fruit peel pieces, etc) remove them with a tweezer.Reinstall the spray arms and see if that works.
Three more ideas:
(1) run a cycle without dishes OR detergent and use 1/4 cup of white vinegar instead. This will break down soil and "gunk" and help your dishwasher run more effectively.
(2) use an old toothbrush and clean the underside of the door INSIDE the dishwasher. The door will be open and you just brush the bottom of the open door on the INSIDE of the dishwasher. A lot of "crud" gathers there and can be redeposite on your dishes. We seldom think to check that area.
(3) the pipe that carries water to the upper sprayer arm MUST fit against the outlet in the back of the dishwasher. If it is dislodged or not seated properly, the water won't flow to the upper sprayer arm.
Hope one of these suggestions helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion. Thanks.

The middle arm on my dishwasher (ge Profile) is not turning...the top and bottom are working fine


Had same problem with mine. Actually bought all new middle arm assembly but as I was taking it apart to install new pieces, I noticed so much gunk in the middle swinging mechanism that I assumed that must have been the problem.. I really think the newer dishwashing tablets cause this buildup problem. Anyway, put on all new pieces and started the machine. Long story short, it worked great for about a month and then started doing the exact same thing. THE reason why the middle arm sprayer doesn't spin is that the little holes at each end (the ones that sit underneath and look like they should propel the sprayer arm ) get clogged. I bought some pipe cleaners, bent to an angle where I could come in from the top and pull out through the propellor hole and voila` the sprayer is swinging beautifully again.. I guess the only question I still have is why this started happening three to four years after I purchased the machine. Something somewheres else must not be doing its job.

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher Model # GSD4940Z00SS. It does not wash very well. Water stays at teh bottom after each wash cycle. We have blow air through tubes and looked for obstruction but can not...


I had a similar problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

I,m not familiar with this make or model but all spray arms should be removable bottom normally pulls off top quarter turn and pull and the back water feeding tube can also be removed usually by clips.rinse through thoroughly and hook out food stuffs with needle from the eyelets.the cause is general build up but mainly pips seeds rice etc.solution is to rinse plates before going in machine also checking filter is firmly in place before wash cycle.remove and check filters regulary. hope this helps
