REMOVE THE UPPER WASH ARM BY UNSCREWING THE BRACKET SECURED TO THE UPPER BASKET ABOUT THE MIDDLE WITH A SINGLE STAINLESS SCREW. REMOVE THE ENTIRE ARM ASSEMBLY FROM THE DISHWASHER. NOTE:: THE SUPPORT AT THE BCK OF THE BASKET THAT HOLDS ONE END OF THE PLASTIC WATER TUBE IS SPLIT TO ALLOW THE WATER TUBE TO BE REMOVED FROM THE BRACKET. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO REMOVE THE BRACKET..JUST THE WATER TUBE AND WASH ARM ASSEMBLY. THE REPLACEMENT PART $4.00 IS A NEW DESIGN AND SNAPS INTO PLACE ON THE BASKET AND NO SCREW IS NECESSARY TO HOLD IT IN PLACE. REMOVE THE SCREW FROM THE BROKEN PART, BEING CAREFUL TO REMEMBER THE SEQUENCE IN WHICH THE PARTS INSTALL SO THAT THEY REALIGN PROPERLY WHEN RE ASSEMBLED. INSERT THE NEW PART THROUGH THE CENTER OF THE WASH ARM/WATER TUBE ASSEMBLY AND SECURE WITH THE SCREW AND WASHER. IT HELPS TO RUN THE SCREW ONCE AND BACK IT OUT AGAIN TO SEAT THE SCREW HOLE BEFORE REINSTALLING THE ARM AND TUBE ON THE BASKET. SNAP THE ASSEMBLED PART TO THE CENTER OF THE BASKET.( THE ARM SHOULD BE FREE FROM THE FRONT,SPLIT RING,BRACKET SO IT CAN BE MANIPULATED TO ALLOW THE NEW PART TO SNAP IN EASILY. IT WILL NOT SNAP IN IF THE FRONT BRACKET AND WATER TUBE IS STILL INSTALLED IN THE BRACKET.) RE PLACE THE WARTER TUBE IN THE PLASTIC SUPPORT WITH THE SPLIT AND PUSH THE UPPER BASKET CLOSED WHILE WATCHING THE WATER TUBE MAKE CONTACT WITH THE WATER SUPPLY LINE AT THE REAR OF THE WASHER. THIS IS NOT A WATER TIGHT CONNECTION AND HAS NO GASKETS. IT JUST SIMPLY CLOSES TO THE CONNECTIONS WHEN THE UPPER BASKET IS PUSHED INTO THE DISHWASHER.
