removed top rack which contains washer arm.unscrewed the old ringnut which had lost its gasket, that the top rack washer arm merges with.screwed the new ring nut onto the threads of the pipe which protrudes thru the back inside if the machine. reinstalled the top rack .job done.
Note: I also purchased the main conduit part (PartSelect #: PS958967).My repair is pretty much the same as the previous poster from TX. The RING NUT W/GASKET part seems to wear easily on this GE dishwasher.Disconnected dishwasher from electrical. You have to remove the rear lower brace panel in order to remove the main conduit. The bottom end of the main conduit is clamped to a hose.Installed the new main conduit and o-ring, screwed RING NUT W/GASKET onto upper end of main conduit. I tightened the ring nut with the wrench to make sure I got a good seal without over tightening.I had to use a new hose clamp to reattach the lower end of the main conduit.Reinstalled brace panel, reconnected electric, and tested.It was an easy fix, the parts did not cost too much. I'm glad I fixed it rather than paying some repairman $$. I purchased an extra RING NUT W/GASKET in case it deteriorates again.
Replaced main conduit, o ring,and ring nut with gasket.
I pulled the dishwasher out and turned it on found the problem. I took the part off to find it broken. ordered the part on a sunday afternoon and it was there on Wednesday in time to fix it before I had to fly home.
First the parts took forever to get here and then the new main conduit nut was defective just as the original from the factory was. It would not thread correctly and had to be wet then forced by hand until the skin ripped off my fingertips. GE stands for "Good Enough"
Pulled dishwasher, disconnected electrical, removed rear lower brace panel to access lower clamp. Replaced conduit with new o-ring, nut, and lower clamp. Reinstalled brace panel, reconnected electrical, reinstalled dishwasher, and tested.
