Top water sprayer on WP dishwasher #GU2400XTPS0 falling off!

The top water sprayer/spinner keeps falling off. I have to remove the top/back water channel to locate the small plastic button that holds this spinner in place. It was lose inside the top section of that. The button still has ridges to retain it slightly but obviously not enough to keep it on.

SOURCE: small plastic top and mid spray arm do not turn, bottom does

decrete, you want to get down to the chopper and screen. If the screen is plugged up with gunk there won't be enough pressure to reach the top spray arms. Check out the posted pics. Remove the lower spray arm. Rotate the rear feed arm to the right until it unsnaps from the tube going up the back. See the 4 torq screws holding the filter on. Remove them. Lift the filter up. Now you will see the chopper inlet cover. 1 torq screw holding it in. Lift it up and there's the chopper and screen. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: The "spinner, 3rd level wash" kept falling off. Ordered new part, no instructions with it.

I came here today looking for the solution to this same problem! However, I might be able to help a little...in searching the bottom of the dishwasher, I found the pointed plastic piece for mine. To put it back in, here's what I did -- the 'vanes' of the spinner face the top of the dishwasher, align the center hole of the spinner with the hole in the 'ceiling' of the dishwasher. Push the small plastic piece (pointed end up) up through the center of the spinner and snap it into place, attaching it to the dishwasher. However, whenever I put mine back in, it comes out in the next wash. I'm assuming that my spinner keeps coming out because my plastic piece is worn(?) I was wondering if there was a screw involved to hold it into place, but from your description of the parts bag (spinner and plastic snap) perhaps there is not. I'll order my replacement part and see if that fixes it. Anyone who knows about this for sure -- please post for us! Thanks!

SOURCE: Top spinner

Hi - I have the same problem. I found a parts site that sells the spinner and the parts to hold it in place. Maybe your parts are broken. Read the customer review at the bottom. Anyways, maybe this will help. If nothing else, you know where to get the part if you need a new one. http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.734590/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=1

SOURCE: Internal Water Pipe Keeps Coming Out

There is a bracket held in with 4 screws under the lower spray arm, near the filter that has 4 lugs which the feed pipe for the top spray arm plug into. They are very common for breaking.

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not clean items on top shelf.

Check the upper spray arm holes for debris that may be plugging up the spray arm. If clean remove the lower spray arm and filter screen and clean out any debris in the sump.

The spinner on top of the dishwasher, that I guess shoots out the water is not spinning. I think?


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

Not wanting to spray shampoo/water piece of ****!!!!!!!


Capt. Obvious fixes: Of course make sure there's clean water in the bladder of the water tank and soap in the soap tank, and make sure the dial is set to Floor Cleaning, not Tool Cleaning or somewhere in between.

Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine (even a new one) keeps water from flowing, until you reprime the Bissell's internal pumps. To prime the pumps the easy way, turn it on, then press, hold, and release the water-and-soap trigger a few times, waiting a few seconds each time.

Still nothing? Prime it the slightly harder way. Separate the two water tank pieces. Only have the base tank filled and mounted on the Bissell without the piece that sits atop the tank. Turn it on. Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel just a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times, a few seconds apart. Release the trigger and repeat a few times.

Still no liquids? If your Bissell has been used at least a few times, particularly if you didn't thoroughly clean the machine when finished, but after a year or so in a hard-water area like mine even if you are good about cleaning it, the water sprayers on your Bissell may have clogged with mineral deposits. This is a *fairly* easy thing to fix yourself, but please read all the way to the end and check out the GOTCHA before trying this.

Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water tank pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your roller brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle, and tend to clog with mineral deposits.

Only work on one sprayer at a time so you can see how it goes back together.

As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, push up on the underside of the sprayer from underneath the bottom unit of the Bissell to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Clean any lint or debris out of the mount area. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.

Now you need to remove one water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip up the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. (See GOTCHA about the spring, below.)

With the clip released, now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care.

When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the end of the red water sprayer that was inside the hose in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. If you can't blow air through it, it's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the hose end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Click the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell.

Now do the same for the other red water sprayer.

The GOTCHA: Once when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. It’s best to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, fix this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (this is the surface the water tank mounts on top of), and pry it up. Pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers on the hose, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base.

You might want to prime the pumps again (instructions above). If the sprayers are clear, and the pumps are primed, but it still doesn't get the floor wet when it should, the problem may be more serious. You may need a pump or motor inside the unit replaced.

As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Thoroughly rinse out and empty both water tank pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and get all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and needs more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it??

Good luck!

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher and the 3rd level spinner broke off. I have a new one and now need to know how to replace it.


the manifold in the back of the dishwasher needs to come out. you can either pop it all the way out it only undo it halfway if your arm is small enough.. there are either 2 tension clips or 2 screws holding it to the top and back. if you undo the top of the manifold and pull it down you should be able to slide the new part in place. the plastic push pin goes on top of the manifold and the spinner goes on the other side. it may be a little difficlt to push the 2 together..

Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water container pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle. These water sprayers tend to clog. See the metal spring running up the hose, behind each red water sprayer? As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, use a screwdriver or other tool under the spring to wedge up the hose, to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Stick a finger in the hole of the base of the Bissell where the sprayer was mounted and run it around the edges there including on the underside of the base to clean out any gunk you can find. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.

Now you need to remove the water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there.

There's something else you may need to do that can help get the water flowing. This one's easier. The Bissell uses pumps, which need to be primed. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine keeps water from flowing. To prime the pumps, separate the two water tank pieces. Fill the base as usual and mount it on the Bissell without the top water tank piece. Plug the Bissell in and **turn it on**. (The Bissell must be running to do this.) Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water release trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. Now that you've cleaned out your water sprayers and primed the Bissell's internal pumps, I'm hoping water will GUSH through your Bissell once again.

As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Empty all the water. Thoroughly rinse out both water container pieces.

You can pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers to the hoses, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base.

There's something else you may need to do that can help get the water flowing. This one's easier. The Bissell uses pumps, which need to be primed. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine keeps water from flowing. To prime the pumps, separate the two water tank pieces. Fill the base as usual and mount it on the Bissell without the top water tank piece. Plug the Bissell in and **turn it on**. (The Bissell must be running to do this.) Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water release trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. Now that you've cleaned out your water sprayers and primed the Bissell's internal pumps, I'm hoping water will GUSH through your Bissell once again.

As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Empty all the water. Thoroughly rinse out both water container pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and blow all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and need more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it??

Good luck!

My Bissell Proheat 8910 does not spray water onto carpet.


The water sprayers on your Bissell are probably clogged. I had this problem this morning, myself, with my machine, about 15 months old. They get clogged up with mineral deposits. This is a *fairly* easy thing to fix yourself. Read all the way to the end before trying this fix.

Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water container pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle. These water sprayers tend to clog. See the metal spring running up the hose, behind each red water sprayer? As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, use a screwdriver or other tool under the spring to wedge up the hose, to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Stick a finger in the hole of the base of the Bissell where the sprayer was mounted and run it around the edges there including on the underside of the base to clean out any gunk you can find. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.

Now you need to remove the water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip down the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. Now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care.

When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the outer end of the red water sprayer in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. You can't blow air through it, right? It's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Now you have to put it back together. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Push the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell.

Now do the same for the other red water sprayer.

I had a problem when I fixed this on mine this morning, because when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. So try to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, I fixed this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (the surface of which the water tank mounts on top of), and then pried it up.

The "spinner, 3rd level wash" kept falling off. Ordered new part, no instructions with it.


I had the same problem, the 3rd level spinner falling off. Without getting into my saga story, save yourself some $$$.
-You will need a screw & washer to replace the plastic thumbtack. The screw will have to be able to screw into the female part of the spinner; the washer will keep the screw from falling out of the hole in the flat hose on the ceiling of the dishwasher.
-If you look closely at the spinner(the part that keeps falling off), you will notice it comes apart. With a flat head screwdriver, separate the 2 parts. (there are 3 parts all together; Keep the round center piece sticking out of the top peice)
--Remove the top drawer of the dishwasher to give you some room to work
-Remove the screw on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher(it is located further back from where the spinner goes) to allow the flat pastic tube to come down low enough for you to get in behind it.(set that screw aside in a safe place; you will put it back later)
-Remove the pastic thumbtack from the hole in the flat plastic tube if it is there & replace with a washer and screw.
-Take the top 2 peices of the spinner, together as assembled & screw the screw into the female portion of the spinner.
-snap on the 3rd piece of the spinner
-replace the screw you took out earlier, securing the flat plastic tube.
-place top drawer
Voila, you are done!! You just saved yourself $20+
