Lower spray arm stopped turing and fell off

First of all I've got to say that when the Wash Arm Retainer Nut broke off I had no idea that it was fixable and for a couple of months my poor son (who's been washing dishes by hand for about 8 years before we got this excellent used dishwasher) had to go back to washing dishes by hand for about 6 weeks while I tried to figure out my alternatives....a new dishwasher was ridiculously expensive. Then....while surfing the web I found Parts Select,read the reviews and realized that I could probably fix the problem with a very inexpensive part. When it arrived in the mail I unscrewed the broken part of the nut, no other parts needed...put it all back together as before in less than 5 mins. and to our joy it worked!!!....thanks to all the people that took the time to write reviews....couldn't have done it without you and thanks to Part Select.......I even decided to check and see if Part Select had a Door Shelf Retainer Bar End Cap for my old fridge.....and found that part too...took 1 min. to install...no tools.....thanks again to all.....my son is very happy now and so am I!!.

Dishwasher leaked

At first, I suspected the door seal was at fault. However, after reading others' repair experiences, I found the dishwasher may leak if the wash arm bearings are worn. So, I took a look at those, and indeed they were quite worn.

After receiving the parts in the mail, I called my 7 and 9 year old kids over. They were excited to open the package, and weren't too disappointed when they found it was dishwasher parts. I told them it was up to them to fix the dishwasher. As I sat on a stool, I instructed them what to do. They did a great job and now it doesn't leak any more.

Some dishes on the top rack weren't coming clean.

I decided to remove the lower wash arm to see if I had a missing screw (which had been the reason my dishes on the top rack weren't coming clean earlier in the year), and there was the problem...the retainer nut was worn out and the top was almost competely separated from the base. I had to use needle nose pliers to remove the retainer nut since it was almost in two pieces, but replacing it (once I had the part) was really easy. My favorite kind of repair, quick, effective and inexpensive!

Wash arm nut broken

As per the machine diagram shown on PartSelect's site, we reassembled the wash arm. It was about as difficult as screwing in a light bulb! This part has broken in the past, and we'd called a repair service to check it out, which cost us $65! This time we paid $11 (including shipping!) got the part in less that 3 days, didn't have to wait around for the repair guy, and our dishwasher is back in business!

CustomerJim from Federal Way WA

Nut holding the lower wash arm broke off

Found the problem, Looked at partselect.com & found both the hold down nut & the washer for the nut. Ordered both pieces & waited for their arrival. Opened both bags when parts showed up & found the nut has a flat area for the washer to rest against, That flat area was broke almost in half. I was pissed just getting a new piece from a company and seeing this. I had no option but to try & use the nut as it is. I was able to use the dishwasher again, but the nut will not stay with the correct tension on it. It catches on the arm to much & tightens its self up so then the arm will quit moving.

Wash arm retainer nut snapped off

I UNSCREWED THE REMAINING PART OF THE RETAINER NUT WITH MY FINGER AND THEN I REMOVED THE OLD SPRAYARM SEAL AND REPLACED IT WITH A NEW ONE. NEXT I REMOVED THE WASH ARM BEARING RING AND REPLACED IT WITH A NEW ONE. THEN FINALLY I SCREWED IN THE WASH ARM RETAINED NUT WITH MY FINGERS. I DID ALL THIS WITHIN 5 MINS. I SAVED ALOT OF MONEY DOING IT MYSELF. MY DISHWASHER IS WORKING GREAT. I LOVE KITCHED AID DISHWASHERS. I HAVE ANOTHER ONE IN MY 2ND HOME.
