I ordered the upper wash arm kit which included the upper wash arm and a retainer. I tested the retainer which was a mistake. I thought I would snap it on, then unsnap it and then install it. Unfortunately the retainer does not come off once snapped on. I dug it out which ruined the retainer. In it's place I used two flat washers and a wood screw. Once installed I sealed it with Mighty Mend It. It has so far worked successfully. I do not recommend this approach. Instead I recommend not testing the retainer. The kit came very quickly. I am happy with PartSelect.
