It is spinning around because one of the rotors is not spinning at full speed. This happens when you bump a spinning rotor against something. Determine which one it is by observation or logic (i.e, the one that turns clockwise will produce counterclockwise torque, which is to be balanced by the other rotor spinning counter clockwise. So the counter clockwise spinning rotor is slow) Tighten the screw that holds that rotor that is spinning more slowly. Use the screwdriver that came with the spare parts.

The small metal piece that goes from the bottom propeller to the top seems to not catch. I wonder if that's what is causing the issue. Not sure how to tighten that. I don't see any screws in that section. Could it be broken?

Hi,
Check the pinion gear of the motor, one of the motor might be slipping its gear and thus the propeller spins unequal to the other.
Hope that helps!

### Motor spins but blade doesn't

If there is a shaft sleeve available from Kitchen Aid you will need to replace that and most likely the chopping blade if there is any damage up inside it.

### Water fills and cycles fine. Arms do not spin; no cleaning. Circulation motor?

Either the motor or chopper is broken. If chopper is broken the screen will be clogged with food. If its clgged you can clean it and reinstall and see if theres any improvement. If so replace chopper.

you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper

### How do i remove cover on food chopper? kenmore 665 the problem is top shelf dishes not getting clean. looking to clean out bottom area,thanks

Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it.
Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier.
Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.

### Will not clean

I had the same problem with my Kitchenaid dishwasher. It would fill with water, heat up, and sound like the motor was running just fine. However, the bottom dishes would be poorly cleaned and the upper dishes would not be touched. Fortunately, my repair did not require pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter. The repair was done within the wash cavity.

I completely drained the water out of the dishwasher (if it hasn't ran through it's cycle). Use a turkey baster if necessary. I Removed the lower wash arm, upper arm supply tube and then started removing plastic cover parts until I worked my way down to a part called the "Chopper assembly". Torex screwdriver bits were necessary in my case.

The chopper assembly is a small metal screen, a metal blade and a plastic drive rod that spins the metal blade.
Chopper assembly

In my case, the plastic part of the assembly was broken and the chopper was not spinning. The screen was plugged with food junk and water could not get past the screen to the wash arms. the spinning blade also ads a little pressure...when it spins.

the part is \$21 online, but may run \$30 at a local parts store.

### Rinse arms not spinning

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper brokeen or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

### Top Arm not spinning on Whirlpool DU1145

It looks like there is not enough water pressure to spin the spray arms. Loss of pressure may be due to various things, like damaged seal, cracked tubes, clogged filters, screens etc.
I suggest you take a look at the technician repair sheet that should be stored inside the front panel at the bottom of the door. Remove that panel under the door with screw driver. Inside, attached to the panel, you should find a troubleshooting guide and solution for technician. But it is easy to follow. Look at the section under "poor wash" and follow its recommendation. I had exact same problem - not enough water pressure. In my case, the chopper screen was clogged and the chopper assemply was broken. I followed the repair instruction above to remove the chopper assembly, cleaned the chopper screen and the washer now is as good as new. I will need to replace the chopper when the part arrives.
Good Luck

### Stuck motor?

bert, to get to the sump and chopper assy. First remove the lower spray arm by holding the top tab and turning the spray arm off. Next grab a hold of the rear feed and turn it to the right until it unsnaps from the rear feed assy. Now you remove the filter and accumulator assy. It has torq screws, remove and lift off. Now the chopper cover will be on the left, one torq screw and it will lift off exposing the chopper blade. This is probably where it's jammed. Look at the attached pics. It will help you. Catriver.
