Default GE Dishwasher top arm won't spin
Model Number: GHDA450L00WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The top arm won't spin. I took apart the bottom water fine filter assembly and cleaned it as it had water solids build up from hard water. There appears to be plenty of pressure coming from the pump. As a test I moved the upper conduit spray assembly out of the way to hear for water hitting the front inside door and it noticeably does. I replaced the upper arm earlier. There doesn't appear to be any kind of o-ring seal on the conduit arm that slides into the funnel looking end.

Is there some other kind of seal associated with this conduit spray assembly that could be causing the water pressure to bypass the arm?

Default Check the Upper Rack Height

I had a very similar problem. Not getting the glasses and cups in the upper rack clean. Noticed that the fit between the connectors that convey water to the sprayer just beneath the upper rack was very sloppy.

Then I got a brainstorm. I squeezed the tabs together that lower the rack and found that the two connectors now snap together and make a good connection with the rack in the lowered position.

I don't know why it was designed this way, but it appears that if the upper rack is pulled into a higher position that the sprayer just beneath it may not have a good connection to force the water through it.
