I've taken off the spray arm and cap (held in with 8 screws) and find a black plastic disk with a 1 inch ''nut shape'' held in by a metal screw. The disk rotates with the screw. Can anyone tell me if it's a 'righty-tighty' or vice-versa. sometimes spinning parts are done backward to keep the screw tight. Is there any other info I need to know about this dis-assembly?
I'm trying to take it apart to clean the debris from the pump and grinder.

Hello. The lower spray arm screws down onto the center, round, plastic part (spinner) that has threads on the center portion. It's very loose and spins easily because it uses the water spray to drive it. At the top of the threads, there will be a flat piece of plastic. Set the spray arm down onto the threads. Hold the flat plastic area that sticks out above the arm with pliers. Spin the spray arm counter-clockwise while holding the spinner. It will thread itself down about a turn or so. Snug firmly--DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN the spray arm onto the spinner. Remember, it only uses water pressure to spin so it doesn't have to be "gorilla tight"! I hope this helps you!
Hi, In the center of the spray arm is a threaded piece of plastic/bolt.
Use pliers and turn that tab on the bolt. If it doesn't turn easy. Holt the bolt and try to turn the spray arm with you hand.
It will release the spray arm so you can remove it.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it. Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier. Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.
Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.
if youve acess below the filter screen ther is only 2 more screws holding down 2 more covers giving you acess to the chopper assy, this is where youll find broken glass and stuff hitting against hte chopper try to break up.. the first of 2 covers lifts right off,,, the second will require sorta prying up and off, beyond this no real acess to any more
It most likely belongs in
center of the dishwasher’s ceiling and is usually held in by a plastic
pin. It is used to spray water on the dishes in the upper rack. I would need your full model number (including the part that
comes before 15882, like 665. or 110. for example) to know the part number for that pin, since it is probably broken. Hope
