Question and Answers

Q:

Our dishwasher stopped working properly one day after the warranty ran out.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It's important that the dishwasher is filling with the proper amount of water and that the wash motor is running. If it's not getting enough water the spray arm(s) will not rotate or if the water is not hot enough the dishes will not be clean. The incoming water supply filling into the dishwasher must be a minimum of 120 degrees. The heating element must also be working to also assist in raising the water temperature (140 degrees) in certain cycles.

Your model dishwasher is designed to fill with a very minimal amount of water. The reason why is because water will never spray out both spray arms at the same time, the spray arm alternate operation each time the pump motor pauses monetarily. This is why it does not require as much water as other models using a different style of pump. I added an image below with the theory of the pump operation.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
