This spray arm is located on the lower half of your dishwasher. Water is forced through this spray arm by the unit's pump and motor assembly. The force of the water propels the spray arms, spraying water and detergent onto the dishes on the dishrack.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Replacement of the arms is very simple, the bottom arm pulls out after turning it counter clockwise, no tool needed. The upper arms need the use of a nut driver or simlar tool to remove the hex screws holding them to the water supply tubes. The hardest part of the repair will be removing the top dish tray. This requires twisting the door slide end retainers outward to remove them and then the dish tray will slide out allowing easy removal of the arm. The top arm is mounted the body of unit.This problem would not have occurred if there was an inline filter on the cold side to filter out calcium (whole house filter). Another way to have corrected this without the purchase of parts would be to run the dishwasher on the rinse cycle 3 or 4 times using 1 cup of lime away on each rinse and also by removing the arms and soaking the arms in a 50/50 solution of water and lime away for 24 hours. This will break down the calicum and enable the arms to be cleaned using a garden hose. New parts however save time and labor in cleaning the arms, however the main drain and supply lines to the arms still need the rinsing prior to replacing the new parts.

My dishwasher was doing a terrible job of cleaning. It was leaving food on dishes, and wasn't dissolving all the detergent. I replaced all the spray arms and the filter, as they seemed clogged, and god knows how old. It's a super easy repair, and the dishwasher now works as if it were brand new.
This was very easy. 1) roll out lower rack, 2) rotate lower arm slightly counter-clockwise and lift it out, 3) install new lower arm by dropping into position and rotating clockwise. 4) roll in lower rack, and roll out upper rack, 5) use a nut driver to remove the retaining bolt/screw from the upper arm - it's in the center of the upper arm and you have to work from underside of upper rack, 6) remover upper arm, 7) install new upper arm by holding in position and re-inserting the retaining bolt/screw. 8) Tighten the retaining screw and make sure upper arm freely rotates.
get fingers between lower spray arm and drive flange - rotate arm counter-clock wise and lift off...the arm was warped and hitting inside of lower door liner.
For those of you that have this problem, please note that there may be three arms to your dishwasher, not just two. I also recommend calling this company to make sure you get the right part...there was no picture for the parts I needed.
