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? :-)

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. :)

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.

the clips that hold it in place are worn. you will have to replace it. they are not very expensive. to remove it simply unscrew the round disc above the arm

Testimonial: "Wish one could buy just the clip and not the whole assembly, but it is not expensive."

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
