Wash arm nut broken

As per the machine diagram shown on PartSelect's site, we reassembled the wash arm. It was about as difficult as screwing in a light bulb! This part has broken in the past, and we'd called a repair service to check it out, which cost us $65! This time we paid $11 (including shipping!) got the part in less that 3 days, didn't have to wait around for the repair guy, and our dishwasher is back in business!

Nut holding the lower wash arm broke off

Found the problem, Looked at partselect.com & found both the hold down nut & the washer for the nut. Ordered both pieces & waited for their arrival. Opened both bags when parts showed up & found the nut has a flat area for the washer to rest against, That flat area was broke almost in half. I was pissed just getting a new piece from a company and seeing this. I had no option but to try & use the nut as it is. I was able to use the dishwasher again, but the nut will not stay with the correct tension on it. It catches on the arm to much & tightens its self up so then the arm will quit moving.

All I had to do was remove the old nut base that had broken off. Then just screw in the new nut. Thanks so much for your website, saved me lots of time and money on a very simple repair.

Wash arm retainer nut had broken.

When the retainer broke, there were some threads left. I carefully removed those. Then screwed the new nut into the hole.

I had a screw loose.

Actually I had a screw/nut broken off so I had to remove the broken piece and screw in the new piece. No story to tell, really.

Dishwasher was leaking around the door. Found out it was because the rotating arm was not running true and was making waves in the bottom of the diswasher causing it water to go over the bottom of the door

The nut was broken so just unscrewed the old one and screwed in the new one. Worked just find

The retainer nut had broken, and the ring and seal were damaged.

I removed the old parts and put in the new ones. No tools necessary. It was a snap.

Water leaking (splash) about once a minute under the door.

I had difficulty determining what was causing the problem. One's first take would be that the door bottom seal was bad, but inspection showed it was more of a drip rail than a seal because it didn't appear to be designed to touch the tub tightly when the door was closed.. Then reading on this site (and others), the idea that the washer arm was tiltiing excessivily was suggested. This would allow the full force of the spray to be directeed at the bottom seal. Since the parts were relatively inexpensive, I replaced the arm bearrling ring, and lower arm seal and the arm retaining nut.. (I could see nothing wrong with the arm itself and the arm was relatively expensive. So, I didn't order it. ) The leak stopped. I noticed that the flange on the old arm bearing ring was narrower than the new one, maybe through wear. But, I am still not sure exactly where/how the water was being splashed or driven toward the door to cause the leak. But, with those parts, it's fixed. Putting the parts in was trivial. Remove the nut, lift the arm off. Set the parts in place, Set the arm back in place. Put th nut back on. The nut is a "thumb nut" . No tools required. A tip: use a folded newspaper below the drip point to catch and make apparent any leak/drip. Drops of water on the paper are easy to spot.

The bottom sprayer was broken,upper sprayer was broken.

Part selection was very easy with the detailed diagram that was provided on the website.The diagram was also very helpful in the instalation. The bottom sprayer neeeded a new bushing and "wing nut"; very easy to install less than 5 mimutes. The top sprayer needed to be unscrewed and replaced with the new assembly. Less than 10 minutes.
