Installation of a new top spray arm

I have a GE Nautilus GSD3735F01WW. The spray arm fell off of the eye shaped piece, which is anchored to the top of the dishwasher.

I ordered a new spray arm, which I just received yesterday.

I don't know how to get the old eye-shaped piece off in order to get the new one on.

I don't see screws or rivets or anything. Do I have to pull the unit out, and disconnect it from the top of the outside of the dishwasher?

Should only be a little plastic push in clip facing down towards the dw in the middle of that spray arm. should be able to pop it out. you may need to take the supply tube off the back so you can get a good look at it

The top and bottom water things wont spin on ge nautilus 165d5450p001 dishwasher. help


Remove the spray arms and check the discharge jets. They are most likely clogged with food particles. Clear the jets and flush out the arms and re-install.

HELLO MY GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher sounds like it is working but there is no water spraying when the wASH cycle is iniciated any suggestions are appreciated


Hi, W/D here.
Check to see if the spray arms might be clogged. Look at each nozzle and slot. If you can remove them and clean over the sink. Back washing with the faucet, and opening the holes with a toothpick should free them up. That would be a good first step.

The dishwasher is not cleaning dishes on the top rack. It does not seem to be getting any water up there at all.

Upper Spray Arm Fell Off


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.

Cannot remove lower spray arm ge dishwasher GSD5911


Some spray arms out there are reverse threaded, however the one that you are dealing with should be regular threads. Should be an opening at the very bottom of the spray arm where you can stick a screwdriver through and use both hands(one on each end of screwdriver) and carefully loosen it. Make sure you get the new one on as tight as you can by hand, then check to make sure its tight by using the screwdriver again. With the screwdriver through the hole, and one hand on each end of it, just apply pressure clockwise, but you do not have to force it. Hand tight plus an ever so slight turn with the screwdriver should do it. Don't forget that anytime you are replacing the spray arm, you must always check once the new one is in place that you do not have a leak underneath the dishwasher. Also remove all water before you start replacing the spray arm to prevent water from leaking once you break the seal when loosening the spray arm.

GE Nautilus making noise


hi you have something in the sump there's a screen on the right side of the spray arm with 2 screws remove them and take screen off use your fingers to probe the cavity be careful it could be glass.

If it does not correct the problem

!.You may have an electric pump . and it could be pump without water . so i would say a bad pump.

I hope this helps...I believe it will....Good luck and good day....thank you for your rating my effort....The Fang.

How do you replace the spray arm? The tip of the spray arm is broken and the middle is cracked.


There should be a round assembly on top that telescopes out this usually un screws then inside there is usually a screw that needs to be removed....put it back the way you took it off and you should be okay....I have the users manual and it looks pretty standard....nothing special..

I hope this helps....good luck and good day....thank you for rating my effort....The Fang
