My wife and I were about to go out shopping for a new dishwasher as our 14 year old kitchenaid was creating such a racket that the dog was hiding. I removed the wash arm assembly and noticed on closer inspection that the wash arm bearing ring ( essentially a small plastic 3/4" washer with a 1/8 " flange) did not have the same appearance for my model dishwaher as the part depicted on's web site. The flange had worn off. The wash arm was just wobbling and making horrendous noises. I ordered the wash arm bearing ring and received the part the next day , installed it in 5 minutes and saved myself upwards to $750 for a new dishwasher.. Thanks PartSelect JH... New Jersey
