Upper basket spray arm

Does not rotate

Have you checked that the cover for the water inlet at the top where it connects to the spray arm is attached? It could have worked loose. Just re-attach and your spray arm should "miraculously" start rotating again!!

SOURCE: spray arm does not move

the spray arm is moved by water spraying out of angled jets at the end of the arm. the mostly cause of no rotation is these jets being blocked - its not always obvious. remove spray arm and run water into centre hole and see if you can see anything blocking the jets

SOURCE: Maytag MBDF550Aww upper spray arm doesn't spin.

Cleaning the filter was the right thing to try.
Since you don't see cracks/breaks on the spray arm and it appears that it is spinning freely, I doubt that replacing the spray arm will fix your problem.
If your dishwasher is several years old, your problem is likely a failing pump motor, but before you swap that out, check that the impeller is not damaged. Good Luck!

SOURCE: LG LDS5811WW Low pressure out of spray arms

On the LG LDF xxxx dishwasher family, the Vario feature uses a motor/check valve to switch between "full power" cleaning from _either_ the lower or the upper spray arms, never at the same time. So, not seeing the upper arm spin during the lower arm spinning is standard operating procedure.

But back to your problem. Step one would be to remove the filter assembly again and make certain that there is nothing (debris, broken glass) blocking the white areas where the check valve rotates to switch between upper/lower spray arms. A blockage there ~could~ cause impotent spraying/cleaning.

If there is no blockage and the impeller remains in good shape, suspect a failing wash pump motor. Try to isolate the noise to that motor.

Watch for error codes on the display and report back what you find, OK?

Good Luck!

SOURCE: lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate

Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

SOURCE: upper spray arm falls off during operation, even after snapping

the clips that hold it in place are worn. you will have to replace it. they are not very expensive. to remove it simply unscrew the round disc above the arm

Testimonial: "Wish one could buy just the clip and not the whole assembly, but it is not expensive."

Why are the items on bottom rack not being cleaned properly


If is clean dishes in the upper basket, I conclude that the pump produces enough pressure what means that the lower spray arm for some reason does not rotate and because that washing result is bad. Before washing I would check the lower spray arm rotates freely and after that open the door during washing and check if the lower spray arm rotates. Sometimes, the holes in the spray arm clog and disable turning which leads to poor washing results in the lower basket.

My dinner plate stops the arm rotating, why? model fdud4812


Both upper and lower washing arms operate on the water pressure and angle of water flowing thru them.
Pressure provided by water pump.

Just about anything that contacts the rotating arm can stop it.
Best thing to do is re-arrange items in dishwasher so that arms can spin freely.
One can always spin washing arms by hand to ensure proper clearance.

Hope this helps...

Upper basket spray does not rotate


check the wash water conduit located on the back wall of the wash cavity from the base up to the center arm if so equipped,then up to the top arm, otherwise the arm itself could be plugged or the spray arm hub could be bad check and make sure arm rotates easily,then remove and make sure there isnt food matter plugging the spray arm holes

Top rack does not wash dishes.


Possible causes of spray arm inefficiency:
Loading large or tall items in the lower basket which stops the arm revolving.
Upper spray arm split along seam.
Upper spray arm blocked.
Under dosing of powder causing foam and reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
Blocked strainers reducing water to circulating pump, therefore reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
inefficient wash motor impellor (faulty)

Upper rinse arm fell off. How does it reattach?


usually it will clip to the basket that holds cups and the like, and engages with the water outlet when the basket is slid into position. Some spray arms have a locking ring that, when the spray bar is held in place, rotates clockwise (if viewed from underneath) and locks the spraybar in place.

Lower Spray Arm doesn't Rotate on Siemens SE55A560 Dishwater


upper and lower connection should be same type of setup
missing part thus?
This sometimes is also caused by not driving in right the rack (closing properly) mating the connections tight. My old Bauknecht had this little problem.
Unfortunately I have no manual with parts drawings.
Still warranty?
Parts shop nearby?
Upper connection does have rubber ring or is a conical seal?
And when you fill the basket, no teaspones or such dropping too far down? My error many times.........
