Dishwasher was leaking around the door. Found out it was because the rotating arm was not running true and was making waves in the bottom of the diswasher causing it water to go over the bottom of the door

The nut was broken so just unscrewed the old one and screwed in the new one. Worked just find

CustomerDan from Apex NC

Water leaking (splash) about once a minute under the door.

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.

The bottom sprayer was broken,upper sprayer was broken.

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.
