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.
after fielding complaints about a aloud dishwasher, I investigated to find the retaining nut had broken off at the threads. With no retaining nut, the washer arm was banging into everything everytime it would rotate. I used a needle nose plier to remove the remainder of the threads that were in the machine, which was the hardest part. Once that was out, I waited three days for delivery and reassembled.Part number was right on the nut and partselect brought me straight to where I needed to be including great pictures in case of confusion.

Arm Retainer Nut broke into two parts, and threaded portion remained inside the Wash Arm Holder. I had to remove the whole Holder, unscrewing eight star screws. Used Long Nose Pliers to unscrew broken retainer nut portion from inside the holder. Re-assembly was very easy.
Simply looked at the exploded parts diagram and put it back together 1-2-3. No problem!
Secured the wash arm with the new nut. It took less than a minute and did not require any tools.
First I ordered the correct parts. The repair involved removing Wash Spray Arm inserting the Lower Spray Arm Seal, peplacing the Wash Spray Arm, then inserting Wash Spray Arm Bearing Ring, the inserting and hand tightening Wash Spray Arm Retainer Nut.
took the broken half out with my fingers and put the new one in it's place
unscrewed one and replaced with the new part.The reason that I am writing this is really not about my repair, but about the great service I recieved. I ordered the part with such ease and actually recieved it the following day , much to my surprise. I will definitely use Part Select in the future.
SO SIMPLE...I removed what was remaining of the plastic retainer nut threads with a small pointed metal punch. I then put the washing arm assembly in place and put the retainer nut on. It seriously took less than one minute.But I have to add...what was even simple and an even more wonderful story was the use of PartSelect to fix the problem. I could not believe how EASY it was to punch in my part number and BAM!! add to cart, pay and by the end of the week my part was in my hand. THANK YOU PartSelect!!!
Thanks for the quick survice. The part came in two days. I looked all over town for 4 days for the same part. We will use you site from now on for all of our repairs. All I had to do was screw the new parts inplace ,and we were up and running. Thanks Jack & Sue
I took the old Wash arm retainer nut out and put the new Wash arm bearing ring and Nut in place and hand tightened. It was fixed in less than a minute. Parts were perfect.
I removed the old parts and replaced them with new parts. It failed to solve the problem.
First I pulled the top half of the broken retainer nut out of the lower wash arm assembly. Then I took the was arm assembly off, removed the other half of the screw, set the lower spray arm seal into the lower wash arm assembly and screwed the wash arm retainer nut back in. As a bonus, I decided to replace the broken Wet agent cap. Had to use needle nose pliers to unscrew the broken bottom stuck in the well... That was the toughest part and it wasn't critical to the dishwasher functioning.
