The top washer arm on a Frigidaire-Gallery Series falls off
The washer arm is always just popping off. We have made sure that there was nothing touching it, but it still comes off. Water pressure to much? Or could a part be missing? It screws into the top of the washer, has a white retaining ring that the propellor snaps into,
Re: The top washer arm on a Frigidaire-Gallery Series...
This also happens with my GLD2350RC, except my dishes won't get clean. I believe its because the water does not circulate right inside. Also I have melted spots from where the arm rested on the heat element. I need to get this this back on.......

Hey friend, that's a great question!
From the information you have provided the wand fell of the top of your Frigidaire dishwasher and you want to reattach it. Normally, the arm screws in. If your arm will not attach properly it could be damaged or the piece it screws into could be damaged. I would check over to make sure there are no cracks or damage done to the arm. Best of luck! -Matt
The arms on a dishwasher spin with water pressure remove your arm and thouroughly clean and flush through , also check for wear on the arm bushes to see if there is excessive wear , the washers may need to be changed. Check the supply hole to the top arm to make sure it is not blocked.
Hello - I suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. Do you noticed if the spray arm is cracked or broken? Will it rotate slowly?If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies.
Reva Daniel, I have actually had this happen to my Frigidaire Pro Series d/w. We have put some tall stemware in the upper rack and this was blocking the rotation of the top arm it actually unscrewed the nut that holds it on. So here is how I have fixed it. 1. Locate the 3 pieces (the nut), (the arm) and (the white plastic connecting piece). the white piece is very small it will most likely be on the very bottom of the dishwasher.2. The small white plastic piece sits inside of the nut and protrudes through the nut and snaps into the arm.3. take the 3 assembled pieces and tighten back on to the top of the wash tub. be patient when tightening this ,it is easy to cross thread. That is all there is to it. if some of the parts are damaged go to partselect.com Be sure you have your model # (its on the inside right side just as you open the door.) Hope this Helps Joe ConnollySealsonetops@gmail.com
The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the larger grey clip that you just unscrewed. Then press the prongs on the white clip into the hole on the arm and snap it back together. Then you can screw the assembly back into the ceiling of the washer.
If this problem persists, you will likely need to replace the white plastic clip. (which is where I am at right now with my washer).
Sure its redeemable if you have the time and money. If I understand you correctly when you move the lowewr spray arm the water drains out? If this is the case then more than likely its a pump motor or solenoid. Reason I say this is on the bottom of the spray arm is a impeller and under that is filter and then pump impeller that drains the water. If its not draining but will by hand then its your pump motor or solenoid. When you start the washer then press cancel/drain do you hear anything? Maybe a humming sound. One more thing could be a thermal fuse for the motor. These are usually not resetable its a one time fuse if it blows you have o buy another one.Hope this helps
I do not have a problem w/the upper arm not spinning. Rather, the upper arm keeps falling off of my frigidair dishwasher. The owner's manual suggests the upper arm is a single unit. However, the upper arm component is comprised of 3 parts. The parts are an arm that distributes the water, the base that screws to the top of the dishwasher, and a small plastic type washer that rides in the base and literally holds the arm to the base. The plastic washer has two small clips that tend to wear or contrast with age; thus letting the arm fall off on a very frequent basis.
Potentially, the small plastic washer piece may have broken in the base assembly and is not allowing the arm to turn. As water flows into the arm from a hole in the base; suggesting the plastic washer may be jammed with a foreign item seems less likely. The base unit screws to the top of the dishwasher and can be removed by hand (the base is a little tight). There are no mechanical pieces to my third (upper) arm; movement of the arm is accomplished with water flow.
You may wish to remove the arm assembly and check for a broken washer or a foreign item in the assembly. As a side note, I found that I can unscrew the base and remove the assembly without removing the top dish tray. The fit is a little tight but the tedium of pulling and reinstalling the top tray can be eliminated by unscrewing the assembly w/the tray slid forward for assembly access.
Hope all you have is a foreign item that is locking the washer.
