Lower sprayarm nut stripped + broken inside pump outlet

You WILL need a star-tip screwdriver for this COMMON DU915 repair. We already had one.
The plastic "wing" nut which keeps the lower sprayarm attached to the pump assembly cracked inside where the threading on each part meets. Have been reattaching the nut to the Pump outlet for a year or so with super glue and finally found PartSelect.com. My husband had to fix this with a star screwdriver and vice grips (and he is super strong)-- otherwise an easy fix using just the manual supplied by the manufacturer. I just noticed the virtual repairman feature on partselect but we didn't need to go there.
The starhead screws that hold the pump outlet in place were on super tight. Other than that, no problem. It has been a week and the dishwasher works like new.
I ordered the parts online at 9pm at night and had the parts in my mailbox the next day - LESS than 24 hours later. How is that even possible?
Just ask anyone who knows me...I am NOT easy to please when it comes to customer service in any realm of the retail world - I have to say without any doubt PartSelect is the BEST experience I've had in my entire shopping life. It's as if customers run this company. I only wish they sold car parts, groceries, clothes and food.
I will be back to purchase again, I'm sure and I know it will go just as smoothly.
PartSelect.com...Please call me when you are ready to launch an IPO!!!!!!!

The nut that holds the sprayer arm down is plastic and had broken inside the base

I used a pair of needle nose pliers to grasp a small section of the broken shaft of the screw and was able to turn it to loosen and remove. the hardest part after that was explaining the part to the local Sears who looked it up based on the model number and orderd the wrong part. thanks to the pictures on your site, i was albe to locate and order the part myself. i paid a fraction of the shipping that Sears had charged me, received the part in less time then Sears delivery and also paid less for the part itself. T H A N K Y O U !

Broken bottom spray arm

I had a broken spray arm on the dishwasher and though i would have to spend $450-$500 on a new dish washer, i ordered parts from part select(even though i was not 100% sure if it will work), the parts were shipped super fast and arrived in 2 days, i was able to replace the broken part and fix the lower spray arm. Part select saved me a lot of money.

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!

Sprayarm nut broke in half

Ordered a new one The Spray arm nut broke in two right above the last threads. The thread part was still in the pump out and was able to remove it with putting a flat screwdriver in the center of the hole and unscrewed it did not take the pump apart because it came out easy with the screwdriver by wedging the flat screwdriver sideways in the hole and turning it counterclockwise. when the new one came I just screwed it in.
