Upper Spray Arm didn't work

  • Customer: Steve from Lindenhurst, IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set
  • 6 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
replaced spray arm, but this did not resolve the problem. The troubleshooting guid (inside kick panel) indicated the check valve may be stuck. We had quite a bit of lime build up, so I suspected the loose deposits may be stuck. I removed all of the deposits, disassembled the lower unit.
Removed lower spray arm, removed spry tube. The tube is two pieces. first the upper portion must be removed (two screws-place towel on base of tub to preven screws from falling into the chopper area), and then the lower portion simply rotates clockwise 1/8 of a turn. The attachment for lower spray arm has a small plastic bearing, careful not to drop it.
The dishwaser then had to be pulled out and turned on the side. I removed the entire lower unit by removing the white tabs (3). Careful, because the unit is now free to drop into the tub. Next I removed the pump. This is tricky as you have to remove the aluminimum bracket to get to the mountin bolt. The bolt turns out easily w/socket and extension. The pump motor is then rotated counter clockwise, and pulled from the pump. Takes a little force as the gasket makes for a tight fit.
I then removed the choper / pump unit from the basin. The build up behind the chopper screen was extensive, so I had to remove the screen and then the chopper cover. After cleaning, the check valve was unplugged and I reassembled the unit.

Dishwasher works great now.

I was hesitant at buying the Matag made replacement, especially since it was one piece as compared to my 10-year old 3 piece assembly, and my dishwasher is KitchenAid.
Ordered on a Sunday afternoon, had in hand Tuesday same week, one phillips head screwdriver to remove/replace. Everyone smiling!
Did not need to remove upper rack. Simply unscrewed 1 screw, put on new one-piece arm, replaced with same screw.
15 minutes!
Good price/delivery.

Removed 2 screws that held the old mount and washer arm in place, new mount was very easy to install, it snapped in, only one screw needed, remounted the washer arm and the job was done. I was really impressed with the ease of ordering and how quick it got here (3 days), also the scematics you have online are very helpful. I printed them out since I don't have the owners manual any longer, they're very helpful in matching up and ordering the right part which saves a lot of time, also I like the way you can just search by model number and appliance name to find the right parts, makes the entire process really easy. I know I will continue to shop here when the need arises. It really cuts down on expensive repair costs.

Hey parts select, I'm Julia's husband and the repair was a simple remove and replace. Only one screw to hold the manifold together and the mounting hardware that we had to order separately was a snap in piece which was different form the original but went in just fine. You saved me from having to buy a new dishwasher which Julia was more than happy to go shopping for!! Thanks!!

I unscrewed the wash arm tube from the agitator, and then unhooked the plastice holders that held the arm tube, pulling those parts out of the dishwasher. I took the new (one piece!) wash arm tube in hand and then realized that I would have to cut the plastic holder in half because there was no way to get the new (1 piece) arm tube through the plastic holder. I cut the plastic holder in half, fit it around the arm tube, and super glued the holder back together, allowing it to dry for several hours just to be safe. After that, I simply screwed the entire thing back on, and we were good to go. It could not have been easier, except for the unexpectedness of have to cut the plastic holder. Saved us probably at least $100 worth of service call and parts.

I simply unscrewed the remainder of the wash arm retainer nut, removed the wash arm bearing ring and spray arm bearing ring and replaced them; No tools were required. At the same time I decided to replaced the upper wash arm with a kit from Part Select. This did require the use of a philips head screwdriver. The job was real easy and accomplished within 1 hour.
