We noticed after only a year that the top spray arm would keep falling off during a cleaning cycle. We'd find it in the top rack of the dishwasher. When we needed to have the motor replaced after only 14 months, the repairman told us this arm falling off is a big problem. He repaired it the best way he could. Recently when it came off there was no way to fix it ourselves and we had to order another part. It's very easy to install as it just screws on the way a hose screws on to a spigot.
First they very promptly sent the wrong part followed promptly by the correct one.The male threads stick down into the top of the dishwasher. When I tried to spin the new upper spray arm onto the threads the male threads kept turning. I used the putty knife to push against and hold the male threads from turning - a butter knife or anything would work as well. Once I got it mostly threaded I pulled the knife out and finished tightening. The other descriptions on line were helpful.
I took the upper rack out and sent it aside and then on the top I just screwed the new one on by my hand and tighten the upper spray arm until it was snugged.
unscrewed old one and screwed in the new .
The repair only took a few minutes. The hardest part was, after removing the part that was still attached, reaching and getting the threads to mesh so it could be screwed on. Maybe because the unit was full, my access was limited, so the extra 15 minutes were operator error.
The new part replaced three pieces that had disassembled. I simply unscrewed the remaining piece and screwed in the new assembly which fit and worked perfectly. It took less than 10 minutes to repair. During the order process this company asked enough questions to insure that the correct part for that machine was ordered. I will order again, no doubt, when needed. The part arrived on time and as described...............Thanks Whit Smith
So simple a caveman could do it....
Big Spoons too high in washer bottom broke off wand. You can simply refit the same part back together if you try. I thought I needed a new one but I didn't. Very ingenious. I will save the one I ordered just in case
Very simple...just unscrew the spray arm and screw on the new one. I had put the old spray arm back together several times, but each wash it would come apart. Quick, simple solution!
The upper spray arm assembly came apart during use of the dishwasher. When the new one came I simply unscrewed the old one, by hand, and replaced it with the new one. It works now as it should. Total time to fix.... 2 minutes. If only everthing was this simple. Cudos to the engineers who designed this fixable problem with such ease.
I removed the existing spray arm ring with my fingers (looking at the new part, I could see that it simply screwed into the tub)and screwed the new part in finger-tight. That was all it took!
2 days after ordering the part from partselect I received the part. It took me about 5 minutes to install and has worked beautifully ever since. Great service, super easy installation. Would recommend to anyone.
It was as simple as take it out of the wrap, unscrew the broken part and replace it with the new one. quite honestly, it was as easy as dialing the repair person.
