At the time I ordered the feed tube assembly with spinner and the spray arm seal for the middle wash arm, the problem was dishes not getting clean on the top rack. Two weeks later the dishes were not getting clean on the bottom rack as well as the top rack, and liquid dishwasher detergent was left
I followed the PartSelect video to replace the feed tube assembly with spinner and the spray arm seal for the middle wash arm. Washing performance was better, but a couple weeks later the dishes on the bottom rack suddenly stopped getting clean. I decided I probably needed a new chopper assembly, which is identified by PartSelect as the cause of problem for 48% of the cases of dishes not getting clean. Before ordering the chopper assembly, however, I followed the video about how to replace the chopper assembly to determine whether the chopper assembly seemed to be worn out (the video shown at https://www.partselect.com/PS11722146-Whirlpool-W10083957V-Chopper-Assembly.htm). It was worse than I anticipated. I found the holes of the chopper assembly screen blocked by food, and the spinner in front of the screen had broken apart. In addition to finding the pieces of the broken chopper assembly, I discovered a treasure chest of debris, including about 8 pieces of broken glassware, 3 twister ties, a half-inch button, a 3/4-inch screw, and dozens of small pieces of metal. I poured water into the area and used a kitchen baster to suck out the water with all the pieces of debris, finishing the clean-up with paper towels. I ordered a new chopper assembly to replace the broken one, and the part arrived in under 48 hours. I relied on the same video to install the new chopper assembly. The only tricky challenge was getting the new chopper assembly back into place. I first tried needle nose pliers in two sizes, as recommended in the video, but what worked much better for me was using two chop sticks that were each about 1/4 inch square from top to bottom. Needle nose pliers are slanted, but the chopsticks did not vary in thickness and separated the screen from the spinner an even distance apart, making it easier to get the gear shaft on the chopper assembly to align in a straight line with the gear shaft on the pump motor. I also rotated the two gear shafts so the gears of the chopper assembly would mesh correctly with the gears of the pump motor shaft. The video cannot show that step very well because the man's hand blocks vision of how exactly to fit the chopper assembly into place. The video also fails to warn about possible debris around the chopper assembly and to explain how to clean out the debris. After finishing installing the chopper assembly my 14-year-old dishwasher cleaned my dishes as well as a new dishwasher. I spent a total of $110.24 on parts and shipping and invested a couple of hours total. The alternative would have been to spend $800 on a new dishwasher or wash dishes by hand. I am very, very happy with the outcome.

Lower spray arm seal replacement
Remove upper tray and spray arm. Remove two screws retaining pipe for upper spray arm and overhead. Unscrew retainer on top of lower spray arm and remove. Gently rotate the upper feed pipe clockwise until pipe can be removed from lower pipe. You may then remove the lower pipe and bearing housing where the seal is. Reverse order for reassembly. I also replaced upper spray arm bushing. Very simple, remove one screw and the arm will come out.

Glasses in the top shelf had food bits - not rinsing well
The most difficult part of this was figuring out the problem was with the middle spray arm - that it was not spinning (and thus not rinsing the top dishes). I could spin it by hand fine - but if I watched its position while the machine was running (open/close the door) I saw it wasn't moving. I took out the top shelf (with spray arm attached) and connected it to the garden hose. I could see then that the arm was sagging and hitting the rear connection, preventing it from spinning. To replace I removed the plugs from the top shelf side-rails (bend the rail open with your thumb and tip the plugs out of the rail to the right for the left rail, to the left for the right rail. this is easier than pulling them out the end of the rail). Slide out the top shelf. Turn over, remove the phillips screw and pull off the manifold, and middle spray arm. Replace with the new parts. I also replaced the top spray arm (which was very loose, and probably not spraying well because it was so loose). For this I unclipped the top feed tube and pulled off the old sprayer. Put a towel in the bottom rack of the washer so you don't drop the little pieces into the pump below. The top spray arm simply snaps in with the two connectors (the pointy one attaches through the feed tube).

spray arm did n't move because it had a crack in the end
First I had to remove the upper dish rack from the dishwasher. This was the most difficult part of the entire fix. I found the screw which holds the spray arm in place, Removed it and took off the old spray arm. Then I replaced the seal and put the entire thing back together, put the screw back in and replaced the rack. Then I ran a load of dishes and discovered the machine works just fine now.

I'm having issues with the spray arm not cleaning the upper shelf. I believe the issue may be with the spray arm seal (part number: Ps11745444). The one from my dishwasher has a 1mm break in it. I can't tell if this is how they are manufactured however. Are the new ones a complete circle with no break?
For model number kuds35fxss5
PartSelect logo
Hi Brad, great question. The spray arm seal for your dishwasher (part number: PS11745444) is in fact manufactured with the 1mm break in it that you describe. Replacing the seal may help with the issue of the spray arm not cleaning the top rack properly. However, if this does not solve the problem, you can visit our repair help section to determine what other parts could cause this symptom. I hope this helps you, and good luck with the repair.

Top rack of glasses are not clean, dishes are clean in bottom rack, put bowls right side up and they fill with water, but glasses are not rinsed enough, stains on coffee cups, and foggy glasses
For model number GU2275XTVY0
PartSelect logo
Hi Cherri, Thank you for your question. If the dishes on the upper rack are not getting clean, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the chopper assembly, the spinner kit, the spray arm seal, sump pump check valve, the spray arm seal, the impellar and seal kit, the heating element, the circulation pump and motor, the lower spray arm support/hub, the water supply manifold probe and the feed tube assembly with spinner. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Dishwasher is very noisy and not using detergent during cycle?
For model number MDB7759AWS3
PartSelect logo
Hello Jerry, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the Circulation Pump Motor, PartSelect Number PS11757387. If the puck motor is defective, it can cause a lot of noise and not pump the water to the spray arms allowing it to reach the soap dispenser to use the soap. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
