SOURCE: third level spray arm

If your dishwasher is the same as our GLD2440REB1, the sort of star-shaped piece on the ceiling unscrews.  Then there's a sort of flangey washery kind of guy that you can poke through the star-shaped piece and snap into the arm.  Then screw the whole thing back on to the pipe.  I know this works, because I do it every time the arm falls off.  Which is every time I run the dishwasher.  ... Oh, crud.

Before I order a new part (spotted for US$7.65 plus shipping), I'm going to try putting some thread or a pin or something in there to hold it together.  Maybe some epoxy.

Am I a cheapskate or what?  :-)

SOURCE: frigiaire dishwasher upper spray arm cover came

Okay, it worked! Reach up in the very top (inside) of dishwasher and unscrew the only thing up there that will unscrew. I just used my dishrag (remember righty-tighty and lefty-loosey). Mine had a small white ring laying in the indention that had 2 "teeth" pointing down. I turned the 2 white teeth crosswise to the two gray teeth in the top of my spray arm and it snapped right together. I then screwed the whole thing (with spray arm attached) back to the top of the dishwasher. I didn't have to worry about the above 'one tooth at a time' thing because mine only had 2 'teeth' and snapped back on easily. Yes, it's a little wobbly but it's always been that way. I always try to make sure nothing is hitting it but will be more careful. Good luck with yours. :)

SOURCE: dishwasher lower spray arm falls off

These parts can be replaced easily and reasosnably cheaply for example the top spray arm is about £20.00p. But you need the back water feed tube as well as the lower spray arm which should come as one package. (depending on model i'm going by bosch). You shouldn't have to pay more than £30.00p + p&p. Hope this helps.

i DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A SOLUTION OR NOT. My DW (same make and model) came off after being knocked off with an overly tall dish load. But, in addition, the 'nipple' gasket (looks like the nipple for a baby bottle, pretty much) was broken. I attahced it several times, same problem. I am going to replace the gasket. I think it might be the necessary part to fix the issue.

Upper arm of HJA 8362 keeps falling off. Could there be a part missing/broken?


yes - the clip that holds the arm on is probably broken off or weak. Order a new spray arm and spray arm support tube - a new wash basket will probably come with these parts on - but check first as some don't.

Most dishwashers dispense the detergent via gravity and the sprayer arms spraying against the soap dispenser once the little door flips open during the wash cycle. Since it sounds like the soap door is opening I would look at the sprayer arms and make sure they are free of food particles or other debris that might be keeping them from rotating and spraying properly. Here are some instructions for performing this check.

Remove the lower dishrack from the unit. Reach into your dishwasher and spin the lower spray arm. Take note of whether or not the arm moves freely or if its movement is restricted. It should not be restricted in its path of motion. Now gently pull up on an end of the spray arm. The spray arm should be free to wobble up and down. Unscrew the arm retaining knob (some of these are left hand threads) and take the arm out for inspection and carefully examine the spray arm seams. If they have split or are damaged, the dishes may not receive the amount of water pressure required to fully clean the dishes or to rotate the arm properly. What’s more, if water is in fact spraying out of the spray arm from its seams, it is possible that it can cause your dishwasher to leak. Make sure there is no debris in any of the holes.

If your dishwasher has a spray tower, pull up on it as far as it will go and then let it fall back down. Again, this movement should not be restricted. It should be a fluid and smooth motion. Also, unscrew the spray tower and examine it for any debris or foreign objects. Remove any that you find.
Gain access to the upper spray arm by removing the upper dishrack. Perform the same tests for the upper spray arm as you just did for the lower spray arm. Keep in mind that the upper spray arm may not wobble as much as the lower spray arm.
On a final note, some dishwasher models have a water tube that meets up with the upper spray arm once the upper dishrack is pushed back. It is a good idea to check to make sure this tube is aligning properly with the upper spray arm and that this has not split or is damaged in any other way.

The upper spray arm keeps falling off during the wash cycle. It seems to click firmly into place when put back. Is there a problem somewhere else in the machine?


Make & model would be really helpful... but without that... I'd guess you have an OBSTRUCTION that the "spay arm" is conflicting with...

Check the clearances of all the contents with your moving parts...

or try emptying your machine. Trying it in that configuration.

Failing that... replace the arm.

More often than not on Asko dishwasher the lower spray arm or filter will clog up causing this issue. The filter in the bottom twist out for you to clean. Check the lower spray arm holes they to will come clogged causing this issue.

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off....


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Check also that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.

Water pumps into the bottom of the dw but the spray arm doesn't rotate and spray. It also empties, so the problem seems to be with the spray arm. Any solutions?
