Bottom water sprayer not spining


If the dishwasher won't clean dishes, check the lower wash arm assembly. If the lower wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the lower rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the lower wash arm assembly spins freely. Also check to be sure the little holes in the lower wash arm aren't clogged or blocked.

Dishes are cloudy and have soap residue. Have cleaned upper &lower spray arm often, as good as posible (find holes plugged). water level & temp. seems normal . Water intake screen appears clean


Clean the spray arm jet holes if they are blocked. Check whether you have filled the rinse-aid dispenser.

Check whether arm turns freely when rotated by hand manually.

The top rack of dishes are not getting clean. I


you need to check the upper wash arm for blockage from debris,if this is not the case,then you need to replace the water conduit from the lower sump area to the top arm,after time the water erodes the plastic conduit especially where it connects at the arms and water gets by these areas and can no longer build pressure to spin the wash arm

The bottom washer arm does not turn or squirt water


Hi Matt.
The lower housing underneath the lower wash arm may still have something blocking the water passages.

If the spray arm is clean and it freely rotates try lightly pressing down on the wash arm and then rotate it. Your checking to see that when water is applied to the spray arm it forces the arm down against the lower housing tower and hopefully does not lock up. If it does lock up while pressing down and rotating obviously you need to find out what the cause is.

You may have to remove the lower wash arm housing and clear the debris from the water passages. Once the passages are clear it should work fine.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Lower dishwasher arm not rotating


Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly or rotating. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

The bottom rack is not cleaning properly. Its as if the water pressure is not enough to wash the plates clean.


Ensure that forks or other cuttlery is not poking out the bottom of the basket and obstructing the lower wash arm.
Check to see that the lower arm is receiving water(and not blocked) to do this empty the machine and put a plastic bag around the arm that engages with a socket on the back of the washer this will block water to the upper arm and increase the pressure to the lower arm. Set the machine to rinse when you can hear the machine start to work open the door quickly and see if the lower arm is spinning!

Upper rack is not cleaning. Greasy dishes on top seem that dishes are not being washed. Seems the upper water turning dispenser is not working, Bottom rack seems ok. I guess I only have half a dish washer...


Check the upper arm for free spinning, then remove the arm and check that the seam between the upper and lower halves has not split somewhere. Also check all the small holes for debris plugging. Run the machine in wash cycle for a little while with the upper arm off--that should flush out anything blocking the pipe up to the arm. If still nothing from the upper arm, tear down the lower arm assembly down to the deck while noting position of all parts removed. Clean the big screen at the bottom in white vinegar and hot water. Inspect the holes in the bottom for anything blocking them.

The dishes no longer get clean even though the water is getting through....are there filters I need to clean or could the soap dispenser be a problem....please help


there are filers in the inside bottom of the machinbe which should be taken out and cleaned regularly.
problem may be that the spray arms are not rotating. open the door when in cycle and check each arm rotates(you will get a bit of water out)
if they are not, the problem is probably debris in the arm so take them out and clean (this is quite tiresome to do and the usual culprits are rice and sweetcorn)
the arms only rotate by water sqirting out of angled jets at the end of the arm and if these are blocked then arm doesn't turn

Lower arm won't spin


the arm only rotates with water shooting out of the angled jets at the end of the arm and these are probably blocked ( i assume it is free to totate manually) take the arm out and run water into the centre hole and this will help push whatever is blocking it to a visible position - usually rice or sweetcorn. you say there are no obstructions in arm but when no water flowing, the blockage tends to slump back into the main body of the arm and out of sight
