Top and middle arm not turning, does not appear to be clogged. turns freely by hand.
Answer Fred, Check to make sure the dishwasher is filling properly. Start the dishwasher in a cycle and let it run 3 to 5 minutes. unlatch the open the door and remove the lower rack. The water level in the front of the tub in the left hand corner should be 1/3 to 1/2 way up the float cover WD12X10051 If there's not enough water in the tub, the pump can't produce the pressure to rotate the arms, and wash properly. You'd want to replace the fill valve WD15X10003 if that's the case.

Is there supposed to be a gasket /o ring on the main conduit part b/c I think that mine is missing. There is a loud growling noise and also a noise that sounds like banging dishes when I run the cycle.
Answer Christina, No, there are no "O" rings or seals involved in the water tower conduit(s) or spray arms. Most of the noises in a dishwasher are due to lack of proper water supply, or debris in the sump and or impeller. Check and make sure the water level in the bottom of the tub is approximately 1 to 1 1/2 in. deep where the flaot is lovated in the left front of the tub. Remove the sump cover and filter WD22X10077 and check for excess debris in the filetr and sump assembly.
Soap dispenser always seems to have soap left in it.Also, is there supposed to be an "O" ring on the nozzle in back that pushes into the upper spray arm?
Answer Hello Harley,
The upper spray arm does not have an O ring. For the soap being left in dispenser. Check to make sure that water temp is hot enough, check to make sure that you do not have broken or cracked spray arms and make sure that the loading of unit is not interefering with the opening of the door.
When spray arm goes around makes a clanging noise, sounds like two dishes banging aganist each other. replaced lock nut system and fixed for awhile now doing it again, will replace again but why does it keep breaking ears off nut?
Answer Dennis, A couple of things you need to check, Make sure the main conduit , is properly secured to the tub. Make sure there are no articles hanging out the bottom of the rack when rolling the lower rack in and out of the unit. and check to insure the lower spray arm and flter are installed properly " To Remove Lower Arm and Fine Filter Assembly : 1. Remove lower rack from dishwasher. 2. Gently lift and rotate lower spray arm counterclockwise to remove. 3. Rotate nut hub counterclockwise to remove. Gently lift fine filter assembly up. Remove fine filter drain from sump. 4. Clean fine filter screen if soil is present. 5. To reinstall fine filter and lower spray arm reverse procedure.
NOTE: When installing fine filter make sure the drain port of the filter is engaged with the drain for the fine filter." Thanks
I too have a growling noise coming from the dishwasher - had it repaired under warranty the first time and the conduit main (WD12X10057) was replaced. After 1 year, and now out of warranty it is doing it again. Checked the filters,arms,and can find no problem. Could the conduit be bad even though I can not find any reason to beleive it is?
Answer Joe, I would not expect that to occur again, but it's not impossible, You could have a deposit build up or something in the tube to cause the noise. But , check and make sure the detergent and rinse aid is not "foaming" up during the cycle, and that you have a proper water level in the bottom of the tub(level should be even with the bottom flange of the tub front) First. Good Luck and Thanks
