out of people found this instruction helpful

Thought it was this gasket so I ordered one, replaced, did not fix it. Technically, this is not even a seal, it is a spacer does not preventing water from moving from point to another. So then I ordered the horizontal arm, middle spray bar, top whirlly wash anc a few other pieces. Now I am into this for about $90.00. Easy repair with these parts but that was not the problem. So I called a repairman, $80.00 He took off the cover of the drum that sits at the base of the DW and cleaned out pop corn kernals, broken glass etc. Put it back together, now water is actually getting pushed up to the top devices. Sooo.. dont be too quick to replace the $4.24 gasket, may not be the problem. I think i could have done what he did if someone had suggested probable problem.
