First I had to remove both racks to get access to the upper spray arm location. The bottom rack was easy. The upper rack was much harder. I checked the manual, and online, to find out how to remove it, but nothing I found worked. Finally, by applying some pressure to some clips on the rack, I was able to pry it out. Then it only took about 1 minute to install the upper spray arm. Now it's working great! It only took 2 days for the part to arrive. I was very satisfied with the whole experience, and would order from PartSelect.com again.
See previous advice. Make sure you place a bath towel in bottom of machine to prevent dropped parts getting into drain. slightly push down on upper water supply tube to permit room to get finger and attaching button in place. Squeeze button by opposing finger and thumb to snap together the arm keeper receptacle and arm.
Had trouble finding my model dishwasher so i called Part Select and we were able to identify the same parts from a newer model. Repair was to replace the entire spray arm assembly, it went well with no problems.
After I got the replacement parts I discovered how the upper arm retainer holds the upper spray arm in place. It was a simple pop out the old retainer and push the new retainer in place. All went well.PS The delivery time was sooner then stated. The on-line delivery time for normal delivery was 3 to 5 days, but I received the parts the next day. I am very pleased with the ease of ordering and ease of installation. Parts Select did a great job.
The repair wash simple. I expected the search for the part to be more difficult.Partselect.com proved me wrong. I've never been happier. The online schematics and easy to follow navigation made it as simple as the repair itself.I'll come back here everytime!
My hubby lined up the pieces and snapped them into position.The towel was to keep the little parts from falling into the DW drain if they were dropped.
Got piece out from dishwasher that was broken (the pin that held it in) and pressed the new one in.
Pulled down on arm, held plunger down from above - pressed new are into place until it snappen in - done.
Put larger plug in center hole facing top of dishwasher. Make sure the arm is facing correct way so water will spray out properly. Pull arm down about 1/2 inch that is attached to top of dishwasher. Push plug up through hole, then carefully use plug to push down opposite way until it snaps in place. It took about 30 seconds.
Removed the upper old plastic screw by hand, put new plastic screw in place through the top, placed upper wash arm in place and pushed the plastic nut through and finally married the hollow plastic nut from below by squeezing the two together.
Pulled upper water supply tube down away from top of unit.gently (about a half inch), romoved the old fastening pin resting on top of the mount. Inserted the new retaining grommet under the new arm, held arm up in the water supply tube mounting area. Squeezed the locking pin down into the top of the grommet expanding the shaft thus retaining the arm in position. Works perfectly.
Hardest part of replacing the upper arm was removing the top dishwasher rack (pop off clips on the end of the metal runners & slide out). Then it easily snapped together in seconds.The gasket around the inside frame was a tight fit, but pressed in with a kid's plastic spoon (didn't want to cut or damage the rubber). I also scoured and cleaned the door where it seals to the gasket since the old one had left residue which it stuck to. Works like a charm!
Snapped the top part to the bottom part and worked fine. Make sure you have the washer arm jets facing downward before you snap it in place.
Just too simple. Took the part out of the bag, placed it in position and snapped the keeper on and was finished. 3 minutes start to finish.
