I have a Maytag MDB6100 dishwasher, 10 years old, has worked perfect until now. Now, the top dishes are still dirty when done. I discovered that no water is coming out of the top whirley-gig. The soap...

Here's a DIAGRAM of your pump system. If you can use the diagram and take it apart you can find the defective part. When the impeller runs it's supposed to pump water up the bottom and top spray arms. You may get wet looking but you need to see where the water is going if it's going anywhere. Also make sure the tower to the upper spray arm is clear and not stopped up. Look for cracks, water spraying in the wrong place or the impeller could be rounded off and not turning.

I think my van has a clogged windshield nozzle. The wiper fluid comes out but doesn't even squirt high enough to hit the windshield.

First try to clean out the squirter nozzles.Take a very small wire, sometimes a staple works great, and stick it into the nozzle to clear any debris.Then try to spray it again.If this didn't solve the problem and the debris is cleared, then you either have a weak or blocked pump, which is located on the washer reservoir itself.Hope I could help!!! Rate me accordingly!! Thanks!

Top spray arms dont work.

Most likely you have debris blocking the holes in the spray arms. The spray arms can be removed and cleaned out in your sink. (blocked holes in the lower spray arm arm almost impossible to clean out)

I have an equator PLS600 and I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried the WikiFix to help a stalled dishwasher, by adding water and vinegar. When I put on the wash cycle it does not run. Even with the...

Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin. If spray arm does spin freely, remove spray arm clip, spray arm and the post assy (the thing the spray arm attaches to). Try your WikiFix again. This time add baking soda to the hole the post assy came from. Top it off with white vinegar. Leave it overnight. In the morning, stick your finger down the hole where the spray arm assy sat. You should feel a plastic thing. This is a propeller attached to the recirculation pump. You need to free it up. Get that thing moving with your pinky or a chopstick or whatever. Try the machine without the spray arm. You should get water blasting up from the hole. Reassemble the spray arm.

1996 Honda Civic Wiper Spray problems

You will not be able to tell whether the spray nozzle is clean just by looking at it.
Poke it with a fine needle and keep trying to spray. If it is blacked,it will soon clear up.
I take it you can hear the spray motor running when you depress the switch.

Upper sray arm does not turn

Take the bottom spray arm off and take out the screen etc. When these are removed it will expose the volute cover. The volute cover is what the lower spray arm attaches to, there will be a few screws that hold it on, when the screws are removed it will lift off. Under it you will find a check ball, it should move freely, it is most likely stuck in place, if it is free it and clean it and the track it rolls in. re-assemble and it should work. hope this helps

Top rack dishes have grainy particles on them after washing and will not come clean.

Run the dishwasher and observe the spray arm,if split it will spray water down: Also check water in tub, is it filling up sufficiently to get near the heater? If it has a upper spray arm does it spray water? If not you may have a clogged upper spray arm.
