Sounds like a design flaw.
i would talk to to the service center for a permanent solution.
this is a mechanical issue that should not be happening.
good luck

Whirlpool dishwasher arms most of the time do not spin


hi bego.
as brian williams has told you thats what you should try.but if you want more info then read this.but i think you will find brian is right in what he is saying to you.
Dirty Filter/Pump. The power to spin the arms is usually related to the water pump for the dishwasher, but if the filter and pump are clogged, they won't put out enough pressure to operate the machine properly.

Neither of the arms are spinning water


Your spray arm jets are probably clogged.
Depending on the model, the lower spray arm generally has a nut or thumb/butterfly screw (plastic) that you remove and then lift the spray arm off. I always soak mine in hot soapy water and then flush with hot water. If debris such as pieces of paper, bone, peelings are in there, you'll need to take a tweezer or toothpick to remove them from the jets. The upper spray arm usually has the same apparatus and you can follow the same procedure.
The upper spray arm receives water pressure from a tube that runs up the back of the machine on the inside. If the connection has been knocked out of line, the water can't flow through the tube to the spray arm. My kids used to knock ours loose when they loaded the lower shelf. Pull out the top shelf and see if the plastic connectors are in place. If not, snap them back on the shelf supports and this should align the tubes.

I hope these suggestions help your problem. If so please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

The upper spray arm is not spinning


Make sure that when you slide the upper tray back into the machine that it engages in the water supply that comes up the back. The tube that goes to the spinner hangs in a little plastic clip and these often break.

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

how old is your machine? it is posible to have something in the watwr pump, you hear the water and the motor, but the fan of the pump (washing pump) is blocket. also the pipes hat make connection to the water pump and the arms. at someoane i found glass in the pump and in the arms, many lime, or ather's things. it is recomandet to make a preclean of dish befor you put this in the machine and for beter results an economy of detergents is recomandet also to put a magnetic (or whit renewable resins, It is recommended for drinking water) softner, you wil save some money.

sound like a low water level and or pressure issue. Start machine on normal cycle after filling open door and ck water level. should be up toJUST below heater assy.. assumiong htats good set hte wash arms to a set positon so you can watch for rotation. close the door adn after a few secs open rapidly and look for middle arm to be spinning, even the top 3rd row arm if present, should be spinning spinning . if not its possible that the motor/sumo assy is blocked w/ foriegn debris. remove the lower spray arm (hold the nut and spin arm)then remove 4 or 5 torx 15 screws. probly pretty glogged under there. if not id look into replacing motor sump assy/seals worn and not throwing water where it should go

These arms spin based on water pressure generated from the washer itself.

Run the washer. As soon as the washer is full of water and the wash cycle starts, open the door and verify that you have at least a couple inches of water in the machine. If there is not enough water in the machine, the pump will not be able to provide pressure. If this is the case, the filling sensor is malfunctioning and will need to be checked.

There's a pump that provides water pressure. It's at the bottom of the machine beneath the lower rotating arm, probably beneath additional plastics. Remove these two items and verify that there is no debris blocking water from reaching the pump as if this is the case, water pressure cannot be generated.

Good luck... let me know what happens, and please rate accordingly.

Installing part


there should be a clip half way up the back and on the top. release those and the old tub should come out with out to much difficulty. the peice that attaches from the feeder arm to the lower spray arm turns clock wise and lifts out. the lower spray arm will unscrew if you use a pair of pliers.

Small plastic top and mid spray arm do not turn, bottom does


decrete, you want to get down to the chopper and screen. If the screen is plugged up with gunk there won't be enough pressure to reach the top spray arms. Check out the posted pics. Remove the lower spray arm. Rotate the rear feed arm to the right until it unsnaps from the tube going up the back. See the 4 torq screws holding the filter on. Remove them. Lift the filter up. Now you will see the chopper inlet cover. 1 torq screw holding it in. Lift it up and there's the chopper and screen. Catriver..post back
