My wife and I were about to go out shopping for a new dishwasher as our 14 year old kitchenaid was creating such a racket that the dog was hiding. I removed the wash arm assembly and noticed on closer inspection that the wash arm bearing ring ( essentially a small plastic 3/4" washer with a 1/8 " flange) did not have the same appearance for my model dishwaher as the part depicted on PartSelect.com's web site. The flange had worn off. The wash arm was just wobbling and making horrendous noises. I ordered the wash arm bearing ring and received the part the next day , installed it in 5 minutes and saved myself upwards to $750 for a new dishwasher.. Thanks PartSelect JH... New Jersey

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.
Removed center screw, lift up the wash arm, remove the plastic bearing. Line up and insert new bearing put the wash arm back in place on top of bearing. Insert screw and tighten. Done.
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.
Check your card against your invoice. They added an extra 1.53 dollars that wasn't on my invoice.Their is really nothing to explain. 1. Upper Spray arm It's just removed 2 screws and replaced the old with the new.2. Lower spray arm bearing and seal, Removed center wing bolt, removed arm removed and replaced seal and bearing.
I removed the bolt that holds on the bottom sprayer, removed the worn bushing, replaced the bushing, reinstalled the sprayer and tightened the bolt. It was that quick and easy.
The problem was the water powered lower swing arm bearing (bushing) had worn out (had rubbed away part of it's flat surface). First I removed the large screw with the big flat finger grip flanges on the top side of the lower swing arm assembly. this assemble looks like a big hub cap. Lift the assemble up and off the attachment stem. The bearing goes on top and the seal on the bottom. Both just push in place with your fingers. Reinstall the assemble on the attaching pivot point that it was removed from and secure with the large thumb screw first removed. Spin the assembley to check for any binding. Do not over tighten the thumb screw. Water pressure is all that drives this assembly and it should always turn with no obstructions.
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.
After looking at the sprayarm, changing detergents and washing every speck off the dishes only to have them come out dirty I decided to replace the sprayarm seal and bearing ring. I didn't really need the sprayarm seal, but figured I had come that far I may as well. It went really well and now I have clean dishes. I spent $26 on parts but a service call is $70 and I still would have had to replace the parts.
unscred by hand wash arm are removed old bearing ring, replaced it and re assembled the wash arm.
