Bottom spray arm doesn’t work.

Bottom spray arm not working, replaced diverter. Didn’t fix the problem. Took the diverter disc out and and the bottom spray arm works but with the decreased water pressure the dishes don’t come clean. Any ideas?

Hi @chewdog4

It may be a problem with the wash motor not creating enough pressure to drive the spray arms.

Here's the tech sheet for the dishwasher.

Besides showing how to run the diagnostics there are strip circuit diagrams for each function. On p.4 there is the wash/rinse motor circuit and it shows the motor windings resistance values which may be worth checking to see if the motor is OK or not.

Sounds way over my head. It acts as though it’s “stuck” on top rack only cleaning.

@chewdog4

Did you try running the diagnostics as described in the tech sheet and checked if there were any error codes displayed?

I did but I can’t make heads or tails of it.

@chewdog4

What error code(s) are you getting?

The Clean LED will flash the code - two flash patterns with a pause between the two. This pattern is repeated 3 times

e.g 5 flashes - pause - 1 flash - pause - 5 flashes - pause - 1 flash etc = door stuck open - see p.7 onwards

9 clean flashes

You may have to replace the spray arm itself. I know it’s counterintuitive but these things spin, jerk and get banged up all the time. Bottom line, they are one of the fastest wearing part in your dishwasher. That’s what I ended up doing on my Kenmore after trying several things like you did. The spray arm is the culprit.

The spray arm works without the diverter disc.
