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.

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.

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.

Spinning spray wheel on top upper wash ass'y broke off.

  • Customer: Carl from Bronx NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

My model dishwasher was a bit older. The new replacement top upper wash assembly had a slightly different construction but was a perfect fit. It even has added protection of the spinner by adding two little fingers around the spinning wheel to protect it from being knocked off by dishes, the most probable cause of its damage to begin with. Only minor issue was that my old unit had 2 screws/holes to mount it and the new replacement unit only came with 1 hole pre-drilled. But if your doing this yourself, you probably have a drill and some small bits somewhere, so a few minutes extra and you'll have an exact replacement unit. Total time took less then 10 minutes and my unit was as good as the day I brought it. Good buy!

The dishes haven't been coming clean. I noticed the bottom wash arm wobbling, so I removed it and found that the ring was completely worn down.
