Maytag dishwasher MDB7100 no water comes from top spray arm


you never said how much water is in the bottom of the tub, it should be close to touching the bottom of the element

No part that turns the arms. Water spraying out of them does that like a lawn sprinkler. If neither arm is turning, then not enough water at high enuff pressure is getting to them.

Water fills up to the element. If water pressure is a problem, how do I increase pressure?

Called the city ("it's free") and they sent down two guys who were not knowledgable at all, so they didn't do anything. Went to Home Depot but they didn't know either.

Thanks for bothering with me!

if water is to the bottom element then house water supply pressure is not your problem. You can not increase the water pressure inside your dishwasher. Your pump impeller creates all the pressure. If you took the screen out and cleaned it and replaced the impeller I would have to guess that when you put it back together you did something wrong. I would suggest that you get yourself a parts diagram of your machines pump assy., then tear back into it. Pay special attention to the 2 nylon spray arm washers.

Thanks to you all for your help. I haven't forgotton to post my results, but unfortunately I have been ill and could not get back to repairing my dishwashers. As Hardwareman says, I think I did not reassemble my parts correctly and I will redo it when I am better. My son is home from school for vacation so he will try meanwhile.

Re: my second dishwasher. After running it a few times it started working again on its own. I think there was debris in it from when the city tore up the street that dislodged after running it a few times. When I feel better, I will take it apart and clean it out better anyway.

Thanks for your help. I will let you know what the problem was on the first dishwasher when I am better and can get back to it.
