Bottom Spray Arm Not Rotating

Hello... I have a Kenmore 655 dishwasher which is less than five years old and the bottom spray arm stopped rotating. I checked to make sure the values are turned on (they are), took off the arm to make sure there was no blockage (there isn't) and it still will not work. Could this be a clogged filter? Where would I even look for that?

Any help is appreciated!!!

Thank you in advance.

Check to make sure you are getting enough water entering the dishwasher. If you add a liter of water, does the water arm turn then? If so, you may have a faulty water valve that is not allowing enough water to enter to turn the spray arm. Hope that solves it :)

Rotating arms dont rotate all clear and water flows

You did not say what the make and model are! I have seen this happen because the bottom rack is too close to the spray arm and when the rack is loaded too heavy, it is hit by the spray bar and the spray bar stops.

My kenmore dishwasher is not cleaning

Hi, i had this sand residue just on the top shelf and found that the upper spray arm was not rotating around. (I opened the door a few times when it was washing to find the spray arm in exactly the same position). I had a quick look at the spray arm holes but did not notice any obstructions... However on closer inspection, I discovered a small hole pointing sideways at each end of the spray arm. The spray from these holes propel the spray arm to rotate. Both were blocked by a small ball of hair like substance. I had to use a needle to remove this and this solved my problem.

Bottom of my Bosch dishwasher not cleaning dishes, top tray OK have cleaned / taken apart

Carefully inspect the lower spray arm for a crack or separation.
Also inspect the holes in the spray arm that may be stopped up with debris.
Remove and clean the filter in the front center of the tub.
Set the spray arm at the 12 o'clock position and start the washer. After 30 seconds open the door and check the position of the spray arm. Do thi several times to confirm the spray arm is rotating.

Dishwasher-bottom arm not spraying

The spray arms can usually be removed by unscrewing (clockwise or counter clockwise depending on brand and model), or squeezing a retainer to release the arm. Before removing the spray arm, place the spray arms (all) in a specific position and activate the dishwasher for a few seconds with wash action. Then examine the position of the spray arms to determine if there was movement from the spray arms. If not, then the spray arm(s) are probably clogged and restricting water flow (which makes them turn). Make certain that you are positioning the plates, glasses, etc. in the dishwasher so that they have access to the water. If still no luck, contact an appliance service company.

The cycle did not complete,the bottom spray arm (the tip) melted along with some plastic utensils (knife handles). Water come out of thee front door.When starting the washer again, the top and bottom spays...

The handles slipped down keeping the spray arm from rotating thus causing it to rest against the heating element. It won't wash because of the hole in the bottom spray arm. You have to replace the spray arm before nything else can be determined.

Bottom rotating arm doesnt spray water but top arm does

i have a similar problem. water is not reaching the bottom spray arm. there. i have an underwater case for my digital camera, so i'm going to put a torch or 2 in some waterproof bags and remove the bottom spray arm and run the dishwasher to see if there's water coming out of the bottom pipe, if not, i need to try and see if there's a blockage in the system, or a dodgy valve, could be that the soldering's or the control panel's buggered.

GE dishwasher GSD2200G00WW dishes not clean

Make sure the spray arm is actually rotating and the jets aren't clogged. You should be able to hear the arm rotating when the dishwasher is operating.

Otherwise, perhaps the pump is plugged or not working and the water isn't "jetting"
