Use this part to secure the lower spray arm of your dishwasher.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
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!

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.
I got on line. ordered the part got it in 2 dayspulled out the old broken part. put in the new.dishwasher is as good as new thanks
The washer arm retainer nut was broken and the washer arm was dislodged Decided to replace the sprayarm and wash arm bearing ring as they looked worn. Middle wash arm tube holder had been broken but was wired together. Decide to replace it as well. Fedex deliver the package and I was running the dish washer fifteen minutes later. Great service and a simple repair
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.Kathleen LambertMilton, Florida
Took out the old nut, got the new part for less than $4 and just screwed it in! Viola! Thanks so much! This is the second time I have fixed my dishwasher with a simple, inexpensive part. I feel so empowered! Yeee haaa!
Just replaced with a new one. No tools required.
replaced items in a snap all is good
Removed bottom half of nut with pliers, installed new bearings top and bottom and new retainer nut. Ordered the parts on Sunday, delivered and fixed on Wednesday, Great service as we live in a very remote area.Thanks,,,,,,
When the retainer broke, there were some threads left. I carefully removed those. Then screwed the new nut into the hole.
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.
The nut was broken so just unscrewed the old one and screwed in the new one. Worked just find
I removed the old parts and put in the new ones. No tools necessary. It was a snap.
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.
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.
