Washer arm at the bottom was loose and flopping around and making waves when the bottom was full of water . This caused the dishwasher to appear to leak.
For the Washer Arm Bearing Ring, First I removed the bottom drawer. Then I unscrewed the retaining screw with my fingers. and lifted off the wash arm. I then removed and replaced the Wash Arm Bearing Ring which looks like a top hat with the top cut out. The rim of the " hat " on the one I removed had completely worn away and looked like a 3/4 inch cylinder It took a couple. of minutes to figure out which part I really had to replace. I then put back the wash arm and tightened the screw back, replaced the drawer and everythig worked perfectly.

For the Spray Arm Feed Tube, I first unscrewed the one screw holding the old tube in place. The old part was orginally in two parts. The new part is only one piece. I placed the new part in its place, and replaced the screw.
