Don't ask me how that happened, but I can't snap it back on. Is there a trick. Does it attached under the center of the top rack? Also a plastic O -ring piece has fallen off and I have no idea where it goes. Wherever I put it , it falls off. Help! Want to fix it myself.

The back endcap on the slider has snaplocks that has to be squeezed then pull off. This should allow you to pull the slider out and then guild it back over the rollers and into its proper place. Just had to do this, and it's hard to get to with the door down, but can be done.
If I'm correct, the spray arm will simply snap on to the large plastic nut that holds down the filter assembly. Make sure the four tabs on the bottom of the spray arm go around the plastic mounting ring and snap on instead of bending in and getting worse when you push down.
Easy to solve!
(1) Remove the drawers to give yourself room to work
(a) bottom drawer just comes right out -- but you knew that
(b) Carefully unclip small plastic retainer caps at the ends of the metal "glides" for the top drawer. Then slide the caps out of the glides. Then remove the top drawer.
(2) Unscrew the "gear-like" plastic fitting into whose hole you were sticking your finger when you felt that small cylindrical ring.
(3) Now that you've got access to the ring, the solution is obvious -- use it to snap the upper arm back into the gear-like fitting. When you're done, the arm will rotate freely in the fitting.
(4) Put everything back together and enjoy the fact that you didn't have to pay some yobbo $75 to come to your hous and do this for you!
(HINT: When screwing the gear-like fitting back into place, use the old machinist's trick of pressing gently and screwing backwards until you feel a click. The threads will now be aligned for you to screw things together the right way. If you do not do this, you might experience frustration reattaching fitting -- since the piece it screws onto is spring loaded.)
If you are referring to the arm on the top of the dishwaser (not the one under the top basked) it snaps in. What probably happened is that it fell off and the plastic nut flipped around. The gray plasting thing on the top (that looks like a flower) will unscrew and you can turn the nut around and snap it back on and then re-attach the entire piece.
You may have stripped the threads on the spray arm or spray arm support. I believe the threads are reverse-threaded and since they are plastic, can easily be stripped if turned in the wrong direction. This has happened to me before. The solution is to replace the lower wash arm and spray arm support. You can find the parts at repairclinic.com. Just type in you model number and look for item numbers 830883 (spray arm support) and 9040141 (lower wash arm). You may also want to check out searspartsdirect.com as well. The parts will be located under the "Lower Washarm and Strainer Parts" section. The two sites do offer comparable pricing. Post back if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
I realize this problem was in March of 2008 but if in the case someone else needs the solution. The Frigidaire website doesn't list this in there troubleshooting list either.
I had the same problem and let the upper spray arm off for a couple of months. My glasses were not getting cleaned as well so I was rewashing everything by hand. What's the point of that if I have a dishwasher.
On the inner roof of the dishwasher there is a round piece that you hook the upper spray arm to. Well it's a pain to try to just snap it on. Unscrew it by hand, get the little white plastic piece so the teeth are pointing out of the hole and snap on it on that way. One tooth at a time and it should go back on. It will be wobbly. Works like new I am so happy !
From now on be careful what you place on the top rack, if the item is too big it will cause it to snap off again. I know I will :)
Thank god I didn't get a repair man in here for something as minimal as that.
