Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher spray arms won't turn


Have you tried tighten the spray arms? They may have come lose at the fittings so need to be tightened up. You can normally tighten them with your hand. Take any traps/filters out of the dishwasher and clean them.

Maytag free standing dishwasher. The machine fills fine, goes through entire cycles with the spray arms spinning but the water does not pump through the spray arms.


Hello, look at the little holes in the spray arms and see they are pluged. If so, clean the holes wiith a small pick. There are chemicals that can be run through your dishwasher to keep the hole and other stuff from pluging up with scale. I hope this help you. GB...stewbison

What if your maytag dishwasher is filling with water but neither wash arm is moving? Is this a simple fix with a new part and if so what part or is it more serious.


The wash arms are moved by the pump pumping water through the arms if they move if you spin them with your hand then the pump is not running. It could be that the motor is not getting power from the circuit board or the pump motor is locked up or burned out. So it would take a new motor.
I don't know how old this is but the newer ones were direct drive it could be possible that this one could be belt driven so it may only need a belt..... Hope this helps.

If the lower and upper spray arms do not turn what could be the problem? I have a MDB4100AWB and I of course have hard water in our area and wondering what is causing the spray arms to turn.


could be the plastic shaft extension that screws onto the motor shaft to drive the pump. The threads on the plastic extension would sometimes get stripped out so that even though the motor is running, it isn't driving the pump mechanism. Assuming the dishwasher is filling with water and motor is running during the wash cycle. also check spray arm openings to make sure they aren't plugged up.

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.


it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

Dishwasher comes on, fills with water, water heats, no movement of the arms so no water spraying out, then the water drains, it goes through the dry cycle and no clean dishes.


What is the manufacturer and model number of your dishwasher?
Depending on the model and design, the sprayer motor/pump has probably failed and the drain motor/pump is still working.
Recommend you pull the sprayer arm and filter. Look for debris that could be jamming the pump - watch out for broken glass when looking.
Make sure the impeller can spin and is not damaged.
If that does not fix the problem, replace the wash motor / pump or replace the entire dishwasher with an Energy Star qualified name brand model.
Good Luck!

Dishwasher appear to be clogged


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

Maytag jet clean model#dwc7400aaw


Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.
