This middle spray arm kit includes an upper spray arm, a holder or hanger, water supply tube or delivery tube, split ring seal, and a screw. The function of these parts is to allow water to spray to all levels of the dishwasher so the dishes will come out completely clean. This kit has recently been redesigned. It does not include the upper support or mount, so consider ordering those parts as well if necessary. The spray arm is approximately 18 inches long, and all parts are white in colour. The only tool you will need to complete this repair is a Phillips screw driver.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
**Please note: This is a redesigned part. The top mounting clip and screw are no longer needed.
Removed upper basket and installed the arm. New snap in didn't require phillips screwdriver as old one and new support had split to insert. Replacing upper spray spinner dropped screw down around pump. This caused misery unassembling lower covers to receive Stainless Steel, so magnet won't help ended up with mirror and hemistat to reach through large screen figures. So make sure to put towel or something in the bottom to catch parts.

I first had to take the upper drawer of the dishwasher out so that I could get to the faulty part. This was a little tricky as there were two clips that had to be removed from the arm slides before the upper drawer could be removed. I then realized that the faulty part DID NOT exactly match the repair part I received. The original connection wand was in two pieces where the repair part was all one piece. That required a bit of thought before I began the repair. There was NO drawing accompanying the new part, so I had to decide how the part would be connected. After a little trial and error, I determined the arrangement of the repair part and completed the repair. All in all, it went well, but there was a few anxious moments when I first saw the difference between the original part and the new part.
I screwed the rack mount to the spindle usingthe extra screw I ordered. I removed the upper dishrack's front stops and slid the rackout. I clamped the mount to the dishrack. I screwed the rotor to the spindle with the screw that came with the rotor kit. I slipped the feed tube mount over the end of the tube and clamped it on the dishrack. I replaced the rack in the slides and replaced the front stops.I had a hard time driving the screws. The slots are crossed but do not seem to be standard Phillips. The screws were hard to drive into the holes in the hard plastic. Before I could drive the mount screw all the way, the slot was too stripped to use.
Used nut driver to remove old spray arm assembly on top rack. Reinstalled the new assembly, clamped the holding assembly onto the rack, tightened the holding assembly--that's it.
First I removed the upper basket from the dishwasher by taking off the end clips from the right and left hand slides. The clips are removed by prying them gently upward with a screwdriver.Second I removed the old spray arm assembly by slipping the old tube off of the rotary fitting.Third I removed the center screw from the rotary fitting which holds the upper spary arm in place. I also removed the small plastic piece (block) which is clipped to the wire basket.Fourth I installed the new spray arm assembly making sure to orient the plastic spacer block so that the spray arm rotates freely. The spacer block clips on the wire tray and the assembly is held in place with a single screw.The new assembly includes a one piece extension tube and end funnel so it is really easy to install.
this was SUPER easy. I unscrewed the handle cover. Disconnected the power console to the front of the dishwasher. Slipped on the spring, then reconnected everything and closed it. The upper spinner need to be unscrewed from the top and bottom of the upper tray. All the new parts were then put together and screwed in by the top and bottom screws. It WORKS!!
I watched the video for the installation which was very easy to follow. I received my part kit quickly and was able to remove the old parts and replace with the new parts. Every thing went just like the video had shown. Glasses that usually sit on the top rack came out squeaky clean now.
Watched the repair video and the installation was a snap. Only problem we had was we had taken the support off the rack and when reapplied we put it on backwards!! Thanks to the video instructor who mentioned the "groove" I figured it out and moved it to the correct position. It works great and saved us so much $$$. Thank you for your great web site, fantastic customer service phone help and superior instructions. Will definitely come here again and recommend to all our friends.
Screwed the base together and clipped the holders on basket. wa-la done.
removed old spray arm and hose. You must keep and reuse bracket to attach new spray arm to the upper rack. 20 year old dishwasher now works perfectly. Less than 5 minute install
I removed the screw that held the arm in place. Make sure you remember where it is supposed to go & keep the little clip that holds it to the top rack. Put the new parts in just the way the old ones came out. Don't forget to use the new screw & washer, my old one was a little stripped. Easy, just as the other posts said (and reading them gave me the confidence to try this myself!)
First I removed the old spray arm and water supply tube. There was one screw at the top of the spray arm and the tube holder clip. The new water supply tube is one piece, not three like the old one (which is why it melted) so the tube holder clip is severed so it can be placed around the tube. The old clip is a solid piece so if you only get a new tube you won't be able to get the old clip around it. I didn't need a new spray arm but thought it would be a good idea to replace the entire spray arm apparatus. I took note of how the old spray arm was placed and put the new one right in! It was very easy.
all i did is to remove the screws out take out the damaged ones and replace them the new ones put the screws back, it was very easy, it save me time and money. Thank-you part select.com
