My Lamona dishwasher HJA 8650 lower spray arm wont rotate, water is spyaying out and nothing in place to stop it rotating, can you help?


Sounds like the pump that pushes the water up to the spray arm is going south on you.
Check to see if the pump or any of the piping, or sprayer arm jets are clogged.

Upper spray arm on my Kitchen Aid dishwasher (8573025) doesn't work.


Arm operates(turns) by water pressure. If it does not turn no water is going to the top spray arm. make sure the setting washer is on does not preclude the top spray arm from operating(read manual). If not check arm by spinning by hand to make sure it is free. If arm is free and it still does not turn when DW is running than there is a restriction in the tubing to the upper spray arm or the check ball or solenoid are not operating correctly.

Arm wont spin..drains fine..arm spins by hand fine


If the arms are not rotating then there is not water going through them.

Remove the arms and check all the holes for blockages.

I turned off my ice maker with the switch on the ice maker now it wont turn back on. Is there a reset or a way to reset the ice maker


How did you know it is not on? A single cycle for an ice maker takes some time to complete. They don't have reset buttons. You just lower the arm to turn it on and raise the arm to turn it off. The cycle goes like this. The tray is filled with water then as the water freeze it reaches a temperature that which triggers a sensor. Then a heating element melts the bottom of the ice then the mechanism rotates and dump the ice. Cycle starts again. This single cycle can take a few hours to complete. If the cycle is interrupted by turning off the water, it could take a while because the ice maker will go through the cycle regardless.

Dishwasher fills but arms wont spin


sounds like a sticky or broken valve. these units have electronically operated valves to control water flow. its very likely that one of these has failed.

Wont fill


turn off the water, there is a cap on the top pop it off with fingers or a screw driver and rotate the fill valve arm a 1/16 to 1/4 turn and the top should pop off turn the water back on and it will flush it out, make sure you have your hand or a cup over the top so the water doesn't go everywhere then reassemble it and it should be good to go

I replaced the spray arm seal, but the arm still wont spin. I get water but not enough pressure to turn the top arm. The bottom arm works fine. Should the top arm turn easily when pushed by hand. It...


arms should turn freely. spray arms are only rotated by water spraying out from angled jets at end. check for blockage in spray arms - sweet corn and rice are the worst offenders. take spray arms off and run water in centre hole and see it runs out of all the jets freely
