Replace upper spray arm mount

  • Customer: Andrew from Davis CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The broken mount was removed with a screwdriver. The replacement was a modified design and had no screw clamp-it just snapped into place. The location on the rack was clear because only one position on the upper rack had the correct spacing between the rack wires. However, once the spray arm was attached with a screwdriver, it was at an odd angle and would not rotate as it ran into the rack. However, removing the mount (required a small screwdriver to press the snaps and release) and reversing it provided the correct angle for the spray arm. The mount needs to project at an angle perpendicular to the UNDERSIDE of the upper rack so that the spray arm rotates parallel to the underside of the rack, not level.

Removed the front panels and then wedged a screwdriver to get the door latch open. Removed the 4 star screws across the top inside to remove the top console. Unlatched the grey ribbon cable, then removed the 3 screws holding the electronics panel in place. Replaced the plastic handle, then aligned the metal bar in place before reversing the direction to put the thing back together. The hardest part of the job was wedging the screwdriver up in the opening to get the door to open in the first place.

You need a properly sized hex (Allen) wrench to get the screws out. Basically simple: remover bottom roller tray, unscrew large plastic holding bolt, remove lower spray arm, unscrew bolts (be sure the wrench is sized right or you might strip the heads), and replace gasket; then reverse procedure. Chances are if the gasket was bad, it will be very obvious (out of circular slot and stretched).

Middle spray arm kit - WATCH the video!!! After watching the video, I knew I could do the repair. It took me about 15 min. The detergent dispenser - I know this will require more time. I am a "visual" person and I could not find a video for dispenser repair...I could be overlooking it.

Noticed an excessive slack/wobble in bottom spray arm. Found video on Part Select website describing the exact model number of dishwasher and how to replace bottom washer arm bearings. Again found part breakdown of assembly on PS website and ordered the part. Received the parts the next day. Replaced bottom bearings on spray arm per video. Took all of about 20 minutes. Wife tested dishwasher with a load of dishes. Works like new. I will personally recommend Part Select to anyone doing a home appliance repair. Again Thanks.

My Kitchen Aid dishwasher ruptured the wash hose on the top rack. I couldn’t find a dealer in my immediate area so I went on line looking for one. Thankfully, instead I found PartSelect.com. I entered my model number (The site told me where to find it) and it easily led me to the correct part and even had a video demonstrating how to install it. It was a 15 minute repair, even with an upgrade, for less than 30 bucks. I will definitely use PartSelect.com again and recommend it to everyone. Very easy website to navigate; any appliance, any part, any brand, any model. I haven’t been able to stump it yet.

The upper and lower arms seemed to not spin freely enough, although the plastic bearings looked okay. I went ahead and bought new ones, as well as the little spinner which attaches inside the top of the machine. They spin a lot better, and after teaching the kids how to put in utensils so they don't slip through the rack and block the spinning arm, the dishes are coming out much cleaner. $30 for parts and shipping, and so far so good!
