Consumer Question - Dishwasher

Q: Hello Joe Gagnon,

How do I check why my dishwasher is not spraying water? I can hear the dishwasher but no water comes out.

A:  Hi Harry,

Thanks for the note.

Make sure the dishwasher is filling with water. Turn it on and let it run for 6 minutes. Open the door - it should be full of water in the bottom. Check the spray arms to see if the little holes are plugged with food particles. The arms come off - usually a plastic nut holds them on. 
Using soap packages with a plastic sheet, which are supposed to dissolve, is sometimes a cause for the holes plugging up.

Please let me know what you find.

Joe Gagnon
