My dishwasher has not been washing upper rack very well. I noticed the upper and middle arm not spraying any water just lower arm is moving and spraying.
You will want to open the pump and remove the volute cover and check to make sure that the check ball is not stuck and make sure that there is nothing caught down in the drain pump that would cause the unit to not circulate properly.
Frigidaire dishwasher not draining after cycle is complete. I replaced the drain pump assembly. Also checked the drainage hose for clogs. Still won't drain. should i replace the motor kit? Is that part of the pump/water removal?
You will want to check the flapper on the drain and make sure that it is not stuck, damaged or missing. Also check to make sure that the drain hose goes to a point of at least 32" before going into the home drain supply.
top two arms are not turning. dishes are dirty after complete cycle....glasses are dirty on the inside on top rack.....HELP//////took parts off bottom of dishwasher down to little ball that rolls toward back of dishwasher....this seem to be ok.....what's next.....thanks jerry.......
Answer Jerry, The first and easiest check would have been the water level in the bottom of the tub. Start the dishwasher, allow the machine to fill and wash for 5 minutes, unlatch the door, or cancel the cycle. Open the door and remove the lower rack. The water level in the center of the tub as close as possible to the spray arm, should measure 3/4 to 1 inch in depth. if not you don't have enough water in the dishwasher to circulate and pressurize the pump properly. You'll need to check or replace the fill valve 154569201 to solve that issue.
Does your motor kit 154844101 come with the 2 O-rings?
Answer Hello Rick. The motor kit part number 154844101 shows to come with both o rings. Thanks!
Unit now makes a grinding sound when the water drains. I removed the drain pump and it looks fine. It spins freely. All tubes are clear of debris. Any ideas? Thanks
If the unit is making a grinding noise and the drain is clear of debris and nothing is in the sump that would cause the unit to make this noise then the issue would be caused by a faulty motor 154844101.
Does the replacement motor, AP5272381, come with the foam insulation for the motor housing and the inner and outer "O" rings.
The motor kit 154844101 does come with the O-rings and has a housing over the motor. Not aware of foam insulation over the motor.
