Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB435RFR Built-in Dishwasher
The upper spray arm has fallen off of my Frigidare 4000 series FDB4315LFCO and I was wondering if this is something I should be able to fix myself. I didn't immediately see a way to get it reconnected and no schematic was provided with the manual.
If you are referring to the arm on the top of the dishwaser (not the one under the top basked) it snaps in. What probably happened is that it fell off and the plastic nut flipped around. The gray plasting thing on the top (that looks like a flower) will unscrew and you can turn the nut around and snap it back on and then re-attach the entire piece.

I had the same problem. You can fix it yourself. Find a parts dealer on the frigidaire web-site and take them the model number of your dishwasher. the part I needed was described as "arm upper spray nut", part # 154607802. If you look at the top of the dishwasher, you should see a round nut, 3 in. diameter (it has a keyed/slotted outer edge). For me, the spray arm had disconnected from this nut. The sprayer had been held in place by a plastic piece with catches that held it in place. These plastic catches broke, letting the arm fall off. I believe these broke because of hard water/calcium build-up, as I found a nugget of calcification as large as the tip of my middle finger in the bottom drain screen. Remove the nut by turning counter-clockwise, replace it with the new assembly. (hand tightening worked for me). Good Luck

Hi, Have you been helped yet?
The upper spray arm has a nut to hold it up. The nut is located under the fill tube on the upper basket. Just sqeeze the tabs on the fil tube and you should see the nut to hold the spray arm.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knowif I can assist you further.

Hello wladyka, that's a great question!
Normally, the spray arm would just screw into place on a Frigidaire dishwasher. If you continue to experience issues with the spray arm I would suggest consulting with a professional for further assistance. Hope this helps. -Matt
