This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I took out the upper rack, unscrewed the old remains and screwed in the new part. Next, I took out the upper rack, turned it over, removed the old hanger (no longer necessary with newly designed part), unscrewed the other part, and screwed on the new part. So easy! And one more thing-I ordered my part on a Fri. and it was on my porch by the following Tues. Now THAT'S service! - Pam

This part is different than the original but works great. I used Geronimo's instructions, but cut the ring (see below) so I didn't have to glue it back together.1-remove upper rack by removing holding clips.2-remove old assembly from Rack3-Use exacto knife to cut old ring guide at top between 2 hooks to accommodate new style (one solid plastic piece). No need to re-glue since the hooks hold it up okay.4-re-install upper rack

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.
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.
The part arrived much sooner than i was ready for. with a square allen wrench I was able to install the tube in no time.
One screw was taken out, the old arm removed, the new one put in place, then attached to the new arm tube holder. TADA!!!! Done. I am a widow, and think I saved about $75.00 doing this job myself. Thank you.
Pretty simple. Hardest part was working the end clips of the slide to remove top rack. You simply need to squeeze the plastic clip in to slide it out. Once the top rack is out, it was an obvious philips head screw removal and new part replacement.
Old style tube was an assembly of 3 separate parts, so it could come apart to pass through the holder bracket easily. New style tube was a single piece. The moldings on either end are too large to slip through the holder bracket circular ring. Apparently, the newer style holder brackets have a slit or break in the ring. Not so with the older bracket I had. I merely cut my own slit at the top of the ring on my old bracket, allowing me to spread the ring wide enough to allow either end of the single-piece tube to pass through. There is very little pressure on the holder bracket ring - it's just a holster for the tube. So the slit does not affect performance. Job done in 30 min.
I needed a #3 screwdriver. Cut the top of the ring of the tube holder, one snip from a pair of side cutters. Unscrew the old tube, screw in the new one, the old tube holder works fine with the cut in it . I didn't need to remove the top rack. Done.
I removed the top rack, unscrewed the old tube assembly. The new tube assembly fit properly, the only problem was that it would not fit through the old hanger. I corrected this problem by cutting the top of the hanger with my pocket knife. It works great.
It was very easy to remove the old part and replace it with the new one.
Replaced the water nozzle tube with only one screw. Took less than 5 minutes. Now works Great. Thanks!!
Whirlpool (who bought KitchenAid years ago) changed the design a bit. The original was a rubber tube, the new part is a solid piece of plastic. The fitting that attaches to the spinner is a little different as well, which required my cutting about 1/2" of the sleeve that extends from the spinner to get the new part to sit flush. After that, it worked great.
repair was ez I have no idea how old the machine is.
