I guess some food got caught in the water level sense float and caused it to mal function.
In the diagnosis process, I removed the arm to clean out any debree in the strainer ( found broken glass). I also found that the two rings mentioned above were worn. I replaced them and all is well.
Thank you for fast response with the replacement parts.

The upper Water dispenser fell apart

  • Customer: Nancy from Nashville TN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
It was very simple, the repair took less than 5 minutes start to finish. I removed the top dish rack, took out two screws and the broken part slipped right off the water feed tube. I slipped the new upper wash assembly on the end of the tube and replaced one screw. My dishwasher is an older model and the new part only has a hole for one screw but I cannot tell any difference in stability or performance. I put the top rack back on and the dishwasher is as good as before.

The washarm bearing ring was completely worn thin and the lower washarm had a greater than usual wobbling

  • Customer: David from York PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

First I removed the nut holding down the lower washarm in place. I then lifted up the lower washarm where it's held in place by the nut. I replaced the two new parts: The lower sprayarm seal that seats underneath the lower washarm and the washarm bearing ring that seats on the top of the lower washarm just underneath the nut. A schematic parts list diagram can be downloaded on the KitchenAid website. The wobbling motion of the lower washarm still seems to have the same amount of play as it had before I replaced the two parts. The lower washarm itself is in fine shape including the nut. I even attempted several other different ways to install the seal and bearing ring, yet the washarm still wobbles when I manually spin it. I called KitchenAid to find out if wobbling of the lower washarm was normal. Unfortunately, the person I spoke to didn't seem to me to knowledgable enough in this area.

Washer arm at the bottom was flopping around causing the dishwasher to appear to leak.

  • Customer: Christopher from Plantation FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Washer arm at the bottom was loose and flopping around and making waves when the bottom was full of water . This caused the dishwasher to appear to leak.
For the Washer Arm Bearing Ring, First I removed the bottom drawer. Then I unscrewed the retaining screw with my fingers. and lifted off the wash arm. I then removed and replaced the Wash Arm Bearing Ring which looks like a top hat with the top cut out. The rim of the " hat " on the one I removed had completely worn away and looked like a 3/4 inch cylinder It took a couple. of minutes to figure out which part I really had to replace. I then put back the wash arm and tightened the screw back, replaced the drawer and everythig worked perfectly.

For the Spray Arm Feed Tube, I first unscrewed the one screw holding the old tube in place. The old part was orginally in two parts. The new part is only one piece. I placed the new part in its place, and replaced the screw.

Upper washer assembly broken off

  • Customer: Elizabeth from Phoenix MD
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
The repair was easy. We used the towel in the bottom of the DW hint to catch any falling screws, etc. My husband did drill out the other side of the bracket , since the new part comes with only one hole ( ???why would they do that?) But all in all it was a simple fix and saving $$$$ on DIY is the way to go when possible. Thanks! The part came very quickly. Great service. Your company is great!
