I had the same problem and thanks to derofeyev I figured it out. I thought I would post some pictures for those who might still be confused. Lift tray and put tower through.

The tower should just go through the lower rack from underneath and then twist in to place.

Indesit di620 dishwasher not spraying water from arms

Hi, you may want to try looking at all the holes in the spray arms. If you see anything blocking a hole, use the tweezers and remove the stuff.
Remove the bottom spray arm and check for items in the water delivery hole.Check the lower spray tower that is connected to the bottom rack. Make sure all rotating parts rotate properly. Look underneath to make sure nothing is stuck in the tower. Remove any stuff stuck that is preventing rotation or clogging the tower.

The spay tower in the bottom fell out. should

If the spray tower is not in place then water will not get to the spray arm for the upper rack. You should be able to re-install the tower. Look for small tabs at the bottom that fit into slots in the mounting. The tabs should snap in or lock when the tower is turned slightly. If the tabs are broken off you should replace the tower. You can use the dishwasher without it but he dishes on the top rack will not get cleaned and the pressure tot he bottom spray arm may be reduced causing dishes to not get completely coean.

Center water tower came apart

There have been many versions of the spray tower used over the years. If you have the model HDA3400G which you posted under, you should get a part number WD22X10008 which is the lower spray arm and tower assembly. By looking at the new part, you will see how a couple tabs hold the part on, and can figure out how to remove the old one with a flat blade screwdriver (or two). If you have a different model, please post the exact model number. The model number sticker is generally located on the left side wall of the tub, right by the front.

Kenmore DW model 15999 Lower Spray Tower Came off

Yes, I was able to get it fixed.
The spray tower actually fits in the rack (I had thought it fit in the top of the lower spray arm - wrong!)

If you were to look at the spray tower itself, it has 2 little clip like plastic protrusions that with a little twist will clip onto the lower rack!

Push the lower rack in and you can see where the center would be, (right over the middle of the lower spray arm ).

Now pull out the rack and take the spray tower and slip it under the rack up thru the bottom in the position you noted was the center (from above).

Now with the spray tower in place, slide the rack back inside the dishwsher and you will see that the tower will be sitting directly over the top of the exact middle of the lower spray arm.

Whirlpool Spray Tower

I got the same problem and spent a couple of days trying to figure it out. The solution is extremely simple - you just snap the tower to the bottom tray. You need to lift the tray, insert the tower through the middle cell of the tray, and just snap it on it. That's it - no bolts, no connectors, nothing.

Spray tower fell off

The Spray tower fits in the bottom rack, Its actually pretty obvious as there is no way it can sit int he position it has to without being in the rack itself otherwise the rack and tower would block each other all the time. 
 Examine the base of your spray tower it should have two "clips" or plastic protusions that will, with a circular twist, snap onto the bars of the middle of the rack itself. Then when in place and your rack is slid inside the dishwasher the tower should sit directly over top of the exact middle of your bottom spray arm. 
et Voila.
