Are you in a geographic area of the country which has heavier amounts of minerals in the water. Over time mineral deposits can clog water lines clogging the smaller diameter lines first. Evidence of this may appear as discoloration on sections of exposed plumbing pipes at connection joints.

Or, perhaps a flexible water feed line has become kinked and the kink is blocking water flow (less likely, but could happen if the hose was installed with a bend and with aging over time and heat it finally kinked).

If mineral deposits, the orifices will have to be cleaned out. You may attempt using a pipe cleaner similar to a welder's tip cleaner to do so. There are also some chemical solutions that may dissolve such deposits depending on the type of likely mineral (this may be difficult to effect). If a kinked hose, you may have to uninstall the dishwasher and replace the hose. These solution may not be easy and it begs the question as to whether or not your dishwasher is worth the repair. Good luck.

Moyer dieble sw400 - is there. Way to lower pressure of water sprayers? The pressure is so high the floor keeps getting wet as the water is spraying through the curtains.

No there isn't, but if water is spraying through the curtains on a commercial dishwashing, ware washing machine. Check that there is nothing partially blocking the jets, and also replace the curtains if they are not in good repair.

You need the pressure to get everything clean.

Polaris 280 moves around pool ,screens not clogged water still spraying up toward bag but not picking anything up

Hi, even though the two jets appear to be spraying upwards, the force may be diminished by partially blocked nozzles. To check remove the debris bag and observe jet action as cleaner is held near water surface. the action must be strong enough to shoot well into the air. If not, then often a piece of wire can be inserted into jets to dislodge the debris. you may have to do this one or more times.
the other cause of insufficient jet pressure is that the feed hose to jets has ruptured or the zip strip retainer has broken. unit must then be partially disassembled.

What do i do if my jets are not working on my windsor commordore 20

You should be able to take off the jet nozzles and clean them out. You may need a socket wrench possibly to get them out or they may be a quick connect kind that only take a quarter turn to remove the jet from it's holder. I would also suggest running a vinegar/water solution through the system to help clean any chemical residue out of the lines. Put a couple of gallons of hot water in the solution tank with a couple of cups of white vinegar and then plug the unit in and press the solution button and let the solution run for a minute or so and then let it sit over night if you can. Then push the solution button again the nest day and let it run for another minute or so and then drain the vinegar/water solution and put in fresh hot water and run it through for several minutes. Also, soak the jets in some of the vinegar/water solution over night as well and do all of the running of the water with the jets off so that you do not clog them up further. Hope this helps.

Bottom wash arm

there is a blockage but may not be obvious. arm turns only by water spraying out of the angled jets at the end of the arm. take arm off, run water thro the centre hole and this is udually enough to force the debris to the jets. clean out and check

Blades not spinning

open door while working and check water is coming out of the jets in the spray arms. if so, remove spray arms and clean. fault may be caused by debris in the end jets which being at an angle are used to turn the arms by the water spraying out. this is not related to water temp. only way to check this is to open up at the end of heat cycle and see how hot water is

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
