Lower wash arm nut twisted and broke off

remove the lower arm and pieces.. get the parts stacked in the right order and hand screw the retainer nut... done! I decided to spend a little more and replace the whole washer arm and I'm glad I did. My dishes are coming out clear then they have in years!! Ordered the parts Thurs morning... thought i might get a load or two done but when I opened the washer on friday it was obvious I was facing a weekend of teens having to handwash dishes! 15 minutes later the doorbell rang and there were the parts!! Woo Hoo!!

The wash arm retainer nut broke in half and the wash arm bearing ring was completely worn away.

I simply unscrewed the remainder of the wash arm retainer nut, removed the wash arm bearing ring and spray arm bearing ring and replaced them; No tools were required. At the same time I decided to replaced the upper wash arm with a kit from Part Select. This did require the use of a philips head screwdriver. The job was real easy and accomplished within 1 hour.

Lower washer arm came loose- dispenser door would not stay closed

Replaced the lower washer arm retaining nut,bearing ring.and seal in about 3 min.The retaining nut had broken off inside - make sure to remove the broken piece-I used needle nose pliers.
The dispenser took about 35 mins. Removed all the screws around the inside of the door and removed panel.Removed screws holding the dispenser and replaced.I took time to give the dishwasher a good cleaning(inside edge).
Now my wife is happy.

Lower spray arm wobble - poor cleaning

Removed the lower spray arm assembly thumb screw and lifted off the spray arm assembly. The lower seal had disintigrated - couldn't even find any pieces in the filter. After reassembly with the new seal and bearing I turned the spray arm by hand to ensure it was not binding. There was still was, what I would consider, some excessive wobble. I fashioned a shim washer out of some plastic from a Folgers coffee can lid and installed it on the thumbscrew threaded shaft and tightened it all down finger tight - it works very well and now, and no wobble.
I relaced the upper spray arm seal while I was doing the job (both the upper and lower seals are the same part #). I figured it would go out on me eventually, so I might as well replace it while I was doing the lower arm work. Kept the old upper arm seal as an emergency replacement.

Cleaned the filter screen of all debris (it is amazing what collects there over time). Cleaned the stainless tub with some spray Greased Lightning, ran the rinse cycle, and then put a few tablespoons of citric acid crystals in the soap dispenser and ran the dishwasher on NORMAL WASH with temperature boost.
Looks new inside; cleans the dishes, glasses and utensils well (no water spotting); and is nice and quite (like when it was new).

Dishwasher leaks at front door

My dishwasher started leaking at the door. I checked the level, door seal, fill float, etc. Nothing worked. Another reviewer of these parts said to replace the Seal, Lower Sprayarm, the Wash Arm Bearing Ring, and the wash arm. I replaced the seal and the bearing, not the washer arm, as my spray had little to no wear. This fixed the problem! If you dishwasher leaks at the door, it is possible these parts are worn and replacing them wil fix the leak. Thanks to the other reviewer I now have no leaks! Buy a spare nut because they break very easy if overtorqued!
