Sounds like no water going into the machine. you may need a water inlet valve.

The spray arms aren't spinning, any ideas?

this dishwasher had many design flaws that generally cannot be fixed even with multiple service calls. lg has scrapped the design and replaced it with their "direct drive" line of dishwashers specifically to remedy the problems with stationary spray arms. my advice would be to replace the unit.

If you have one spray bar working then there is enough pressure. There is only one pump. So you should check the spray bar to see if it is plugged. Also check the seals to see if they are bad.

The bottom spray arm on our LG dishwasher, Model LD-14AW3, will not spin. The diverter valve from top to bottom section does not operate, i cleaned it and the housing near the filter but still no go. any...


I have the same problem, well - similar. The diverter is moving for me, however it is moving to the wrong position. It seems to move between the upper arm and then blocking off, rather than upper arm and then lower arm.
Did you manage to find a solution?

The top two water water arms do not spin


These spray arm will only get water several times in the wash and rinse cycle. They do not turn at the same time the lower (bottom large spray arm under the bottom rack).
There is a chamber that diverts water either to the bottom sprayer or to the top sprayers, not to both at the same time.
If your top spray arms never get water, then there must be an issue with that chamber motor to divert the water. A new sump assembly that has all the new parts.
Good luck.

Top arm in dishwasher will NOT spin!


When you say the top arm does not spin, remember that the LG model x811 family has the Vario feature that alternates between routing the pumped water to the bottom arm and then the top arms alternately. So anytime the dishwasher is washing and rinsing, either the lower or upper arms will be spinning.

If the problem is not above, then the motor that drives the check valve may have failed (or the check valve is obstructed inside.)

Hope that helps. Please post back here with what you find, OK?

LG LDF6920ST Bottom spray arm dose not work


The LG LDF6920 dishwasher has an innovative "Vario" motor/check valve. It switches between full power spray on the upper arms and the lower arm. So, if you are looking inside the dishwasher to see which arm is spinning, you just have not opened it when the lower arm is turning.
if the root problem is that your dishes are not getting clean with this water conserving DW, go out and buy a name brand detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade. And use less powder then you have been using.
Good Luck!
