I replaced the arm and pivot parts received from Part Select. Check the drawing to make sure that you put the male pin and the female part in the correct position. In the Kitchenaid it was male pin inserted from the top through the arm into the female part. Cover the bottom of the washer with kithen towels or paper towels so that dropped parts do not enter drain holes.
