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!!.

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.
