My dishwasher arms are continuously getting clogged with bits of food and then will not spin. Do I need to replace the impeller or is there a better fix for this.
ANSWER Hello Steve,
Normally the spray arms would have to be replaced when they become clogged since they cannot be dis-assembled for cleaning. The perfect fix for this is to scrape off the excess food particles before placing the item in the dishwasher. Notice that I did not say to rinse the dishes, but to scrape off the excess. Excess is considered to be anything that is too large to pass through the spray arm holes. This will stop this issue in addition to being much easier on the motor and the chopper assembly.
