CustomerJalyn from Land O Lakes FL

Loud dishwasher

after fielding complaints about a aloud dishwasher, I investigated to find the retaining nut had broken off at the threads. With no retaining nut, the washer arm was banging into everything everytime it would rotate.

I used a needle nose plier to remove the remainder of the threads that were in the machine, which was the hardest part. Once that was out, I waited three days for delivery and reassembled.

Part number was right on the nut and partselect brought me straight to where I needed to be including great pictures in case of confusion.

Broken arm retainer nut

Arm Retainer Nut broke into two parts, and threaded portion remained inside the Wash Arm Holder. I had to remove the whole Holder, unscrewing eight star screws. Used Long Nose Pliers to unscrew broken retainer nut portion from inside the holder. Re-assembly was very easy.

CustomerPatrick from Anaheim Hills CA

Wash arm retainer nut broke

SO SIMPLE...I removed what was remaining of the plastic retainer nut threads with a small pointed metal punch. I then put the washing arm assembly in place and put the retainer nut on. It seriously took less than one minute.

But I have to add...what was even simple and an even more wonderful story was the use of PartSelect to fix the problem. I could not believe how EASY it was to punch in my part number and BAM!! add to cart, pay and by the end of the week my part was in my hand. THANK YOU PartSelect!!!

CustomerMelissa from The Colony TX

Wash arm retainer nut snapped in half

First I pulled the top half of the broken retainer nut out of the lower wash arm assembly. Then I took the was arm assembly off, removed the other half of the screw, set the lower spray arm seal into the lower wash arm assembly and screwed the wash arm retainer nut back in. As a bonus, I decided to replace the broken Wet agent cap. Had to use needle nose pliers to unscrew the broken bottom stuck in the well... That was the toughest part and it wasn't critical to the dishwasher functioning.
