If the arm does not appear to have broken parts, then it probably came unscrewed. The screw and washers may be in the bottom of the machine or instead of screw and washer it may be a plastic locking device. (depending on what model) Those screws or plastic locking device almost always screw in backwards. So, to but it back on, turn to the left as if you were loosening - but you are actually tightening.
Hope this helps ya.

There are some GE dishwashers where the middle spray arm tube vibrates as it washes. This middle spray arm is attached to the top rack. The end of this spray arm tube where it goes into the back wall is loose. There is an after market rubber washer from GE that goes there to prevent vibration and make a tighter seal. Or you can put a tie wrap around the tube end and rack to prevent vibration.
The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck. Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.
Hello Mike Hilgers - There are two main reasons why the middle spray arm could possibly be loose. Either it is not installed properly or the bracket that mounts it to the bottom of the rack is broken or loose. Carefully remove rack, spray arm and reposition correctly with all rack wheels inside rack slides. If you have already done so, replacement parts may need to be ordered or it could possibly be a more serious issue coming from the interior dishwasher.
There is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My kids used to jam cutting boards and other large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem. If not, then the spray arm may have debris in it that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm. I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.
no it cant to clean a dishwasher good the best thing you can do is run lemeshine often found at a publix or wallmart in the dishwasher detergant isles . if you try to sepperate the arms ther is a very good chance you will break the water tight seal and it cannot be fixed without replacement.
Check the small holes on the spray arm. They are most likely plugged. (candy wrappers, tooth picks, popcorn or watermelon seeds, you name it.) Sometimes you can clear the holes out, other times it is just as easy (and not very expensive) to replace the spray arm(s). List your model number if you need part numbers or instructions on removing spray arm.
Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine : put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , check that the spray arm move... make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door... good luck 911servicetoday . com
load 4 cups right side up in all four corners of top rack, move all wash arms to a known positon(pointing foward just want to check there rotaiton). start diswasher, when you hear it start washing give it 30 sec or so andpop it open try to focus on middle spray arm when opening, shlould be turning quite well. and glasses sould be starting to fill. at least thats how it SHOULD operate
I removed the lower arm, the strainer, and three screws (Torx, but I used small allen wrench). I took of the pump cover, and found a small white ball blocking the tube that goes to the top rack sprayer. I put everything back except the ball. It has worked well ever since.
