Kenmore Dishwasher Major Issues

Kenmore Dishwasher Spray Arm Blockages

Blockages in the spray arms of your Kenmore dishwasher can hinder the proper distribution of water and detergent, leading to poor cleaning performance. Here’s how to address and resolve spray arm blockages:

1. Remove the Spray Arms:

Start by removing the spray arms. Depending on your Kenmore dishwasher model, this may involve unscrewing a central nut or simply lifting the arm off its mount.

2. Rinse and Clean:

Thoroughly rinse the spray arms to remove any visible debris or mineral buildup. Use a soft brush or toothpick to dislodge stubborn clogs.

3. Check Spray Arm Holes:

Inspect the small holes or nozzles on the spray arms. Ensure they are free from blockages. A toothpick or a thin wire can be used to clear any debris from these holes.

4. Clean the Filters:

While the spray arms are removed, it’s a good opportunity to check and clean the filters in the dishwasher. Clogged filters can contribute to spray arm blockages.

5. Reassemble and Test:

Once the spray arms are cleaned and free from blockages, reattach them to the dishwasher. Make sure they are securely in place. Run a test cycle to ensure the water is now properly distributed, and the dishes are being cleaned effectively.

6. Routine Maintenance:

To prevent future blockages, regularly inspect and clean the spray arms as part of your dishwasher’s routine maintenance.

Addressing spray arm blockages in your Kenmore dishwasher can significantly improve its cleaning performance, ensuring that dishes come out spotless after each cycle. Regular maintenance and proper usage of the dishwasher can help prevent blockages from occurring in the first place.
