Upper Spray Arm in the dishwasher has fallen off

The small Upper Spray Arm (located in the top) of my Kitchenaid dishwasher has fallen off. It appears it's held in place with two push-in fasteners. I have the arm and one fastener. If I purchase a new spray arm (with the fasteners), how do I install it?

Thank you.

If you cannot just twist it so it screws back on a part was broken.

So I suggest you contact the manufacturer about this. Im sure that will be much more helpful!

Why is the upper sray arm is not working in kitchenaid model KUDR01TJ


There are 2 spray arms for the top rack. A small one on the dishwasher top and a bigger one attached to the bottom of the upper rack. Both get water feed from a flat tube that runs up the back wall of the dishwasher. Not much to the very top little arm--just check the spray holes for any food blockage and try to clean with a brush or tooth pick. The bigger arm on the bottom of the top rack gets its water feed through a hole about half way up the flat tube on the back wall. When you push the rack all the way in, it has to plug itself into that hole in the back wall. Check that plug in area and make sure nothing broke off that would keep it from making a good seal with the rack all the way in. All check all the holes in the spray arm for food blockages. On the very end of all spray arms is a main hole that is the drive hole to spin the spray arm. The water shoots out that hole and acts like a jet engine to push the arm around. Make sure those holes are clear.

The top spray arm of my Bosch SHE6AP05UC seems to have fallen off during a cycle and I cannot reattach it. It doesn't seem to snap or clip in like it looks.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

If you align the spray arm to the section of the upper rack which it fastens to, as shown here...

Then place it against the holder and turn, it should grab the holder, unless something else has broken...but it should be that simple, i.e.

macmarkus_207.jpg

This is the official explanation from Bosch below...

Hopefully that will help you move forward and answer you question. Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

My kitchenaid dishwasher the water does not get to the upper rack...and the dishes on the second rack on not clean at all....


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

7-8 year old KitchenAid washes dishes on bottom, but not on top


Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.

Water not pumping to upper spray arm


First,

See this link for a picture of the upper spray arm and manifold assembly.

http://www.apwagner.com/index.php?main_page=model_lookup&model_num=KUDP02IRBL0&model_id=163723&diagram_id=380403

Referring to parts 1, 6, and 9, make sure everything is attached, secure, and lines up when the upper rack is pushed back into place.

It's possible the pump is obstructed and not delivering water to the upper arm, but the more likely cause is a displaced upper arm feeder tube. If no luck, start checking for obstructions in the feeder tube, manifold and the spray arm.

Top rack dishes not getting clean


Hey- Two things could be wrong.- clog, or bad motor. Sump screen needs to be cleaned of debris. Removal of sump cover to access screen requires torx bits and some patience. Replacement of pump requires pulling out dishwasher to access bottom. Motors fail when seal between motor and pump fails. Will still operate, but become weaker over time. Parts available- motor about 100$ at appliance parts pros.appliancepartspros. Hopes this helps- Thanks- ED

Bottom rack cleans fine, top rack doesn't clean at all - can I take apart the top spray arm?


yes, the spray arm can be removed and cleaned out.

Also, clean the 3rd (very top spray area) located attached to the top of the dishwasher. You want to make sure this small (1 inch size) piece can spin freely, so water can rinse the upper rack items.
