SOURCE: spray arms clogged

Top: Remove the upper tray by releasing the clips on the ends of the runners. (Squeeze the top of the clip and pull upwards). Remove the spray arm by holding the round plastic clip that holds the arm and turning the arm. It will unscrew.

Bottom: Grab spray arm in centre and pull sharply upwards to unclip.

Wash in warm water and solvent-free detergent.

SOURCE: Upper spray arm keeps falling

The problem on my Samsung was not the spray arm but the part it hangs from. This part is a small grey socket with a part number of POM it costs about $12 including shipping from here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-DMT300RFWXAA/1482/0130000/50037802/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

After the spray arm falls off or you remove it by pulling it down and off... take a butter knife and pry the small grey plastic clips off the left and right side of the small part the sprayer arm hangs from. You will see it may have significant wear. Just pop the new part on and clip the sprayer arm back on. The part in the above link is no. 5If the aboe link doesnt work... go to www.searspartsdirect.com and search Holder PART NUMBER: DD61-00228A
Hope this helps.

The upper spray arm came detached, how do I reattach it?


On my dishwasher, this arm attaches with a huge gray plastic screw. If it comes loose, you'll usually find the spray arm sitting in the bottom rack, but the screw falls down to the bottom of the tub.

The spray arm has a hole that goes all the way through its center. One of these holes is larger than the other, so the arm will only attach in one direction. Most of the spray holes on the arm face "up" when installed.

Slide out the upper rack, position the spray arm on its pivot, then insert the screw and turn clockwise to tighten it. The arm should spin freely.

If this arm isn't attached, none of the dishes will wash well (due to a loss of water pressure).

Why doesn't my Bosch SHU43 c06uc dishwasher have any cleaning force?


With your dishwasher empty, roll out the bottom rack. The feed line for the upper spray arm runs from a pump outlet directly behind the lower spray arm spindle. This tube runs up the back wall of the dishwasher and mates with the upper rack when it is pushed in.

This feed tube simply snaps into place in the bottom of the machine. It is a high pressure line that makes an immediade 90-degree bend towards the rear of the unit. They have a tendency to pop out. When and if it does pop out you get almost no water coming out of the upper arm and you lose effective pressure in the lower arm, too. The cure is to push that feed tube back down firmly into the port until you hear it snap into place. While you have the lowere rack out it is a good idea to clean the intake screen out and check for any debris in the intake well.

Water does not enter upper tier in my portable dishwasher


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.

Upper rinse arm fell off. How does it reattach?


usually it will clip to the basket that holds cups and the like, and engages with the water outlet when the basket is slid into position. Some spray arms have a locking ring that, when the spray bar is held in place, rotates clockwise (if viewed from underneath) and locks the spraybar in place.

Upper spray arm pops off - all the time


I had the same problem. Popped off everyday. Use a little super glue on the inside of circle that snaps in. Mine hasn't popped off in over a month.

There is a screen that you can remove from the sump of the dishwasher to clean. Just twist it to the left and pull it out. I have some tips that you might want to check out if this does not resolve your problem.

Broken nozzle and upper spray arm


Thanks for the help. Like the other guy said the "ninga star" thing unscrews and using the plastic part inside I just pop the spray arm back on. Screw it back and it works again.
