Check spray arm for obstructions and if it is clear the motor impeller could be slipping or water system may need a good cleaning with CLR.

Kenmore ultra wash III portable dishwasher. Model #1765991. Lower wash arm came off. How do I re-attach?

Hello. The lower spray arm screws down onto the center, round, plastic part (spinner) that has threads on the center portion. It's very loose and spins easily because it uses the water spray to drive it. At the top of the threads, there will be a flat piece of plastic. Set the spray arm down onto the threads. Hold the flat plastic area that sticks out above the arm with pliers. Spin the spray arm counter-clockwise while holding the spinner. It will thread itself down about a turn or so. Snug firmly--DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN the spray arm onto the spinner. Remember, it only uses water pressure to spin so it doesn't have to be "gorilla tight"! I hope this helps you!

My sears kenmore dishwasher model #665 is not getting my dishes clean. I took out the lower basket and discovered that the lower spray arm and the housing it sits on is very loose an wobbeling. How can I...

The lower spray arm being loose is a normal condition. The first thing that needs to be checked is that the holes in the spray arms are clean and not blocked. Next once the unit has filled with water, the water level needs to be checked. If it is too low this will be what we need to repair. There is a float assembly in one of the front corners the water should be very close to the float. If it is not there is either a restriction in the fill line, water fill valve or the main board. You should be able to listen to the fill time and that should be around 55 seconds. After these tests are done I will nee the information to continue the diagnosis.

Kenmore model 665

You need to check the arm's holes for clogs. If the water is filling and draining well, the only water that circulates is being pushed up through the center hole or tower.

The angles of the holes cause them to be little jets when the water rushes out. No water getting through = no jet = no spin.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Dishwasher spray arms don't spin & spray water

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.

Very poor cleaning all of a sudden

suspect blockage in the actual spray arms - take them out and clean under the tap. a check is to open the door when in operation and see if the spray arms are rotating. they are made to rotate only by the force of water thro angled jets at the end of the arms

Spray arms

Sounds like the circulating pump is faulty or the spray arms hav become partially clogged. Loss of available water will stop the spray arm motion.
