KitchenAid KUDR01TJ - Top Sprayer came off

Hello,  Today I noticed that the top sprayer arm was sitting on the bottom of the dish washer.  AllI could find was the arm, a plactic center piece and a metal part that looks like a key with a slot in the middle.  I tried to look for a parts listing and exploded diagram view of the parts but could not find anything on the Sears site where the dish washer was purchsed.  I am thinking that there is some type od screw that may be missing.
Can you help?  Thank you in advance.

    The top sprayer also came off into the top wrack of our KUDR01TJ dishwasher, but there was a plastic 'thingy" like a bolt without threads laying in the bottom of the tub. We were able to reinsert the bolt type "thingy" through the sprayer and into the fixture on the top of the washer to hold the sprayer in place, and after spinning it by hand a few times it looks like it may stay put. We'll see if it stays during the next wash.

Top rack not cleaning dishes. model # FDB1050RES2


Hello, check the sprayer arm on the top of the dishwasher inside and to see if it spins. Don't block this spray arm with glasses or dishes that could block the operation of this sprayer cleaning arm.

Now, if it not spinning, check out the fitting arount hing bolt. If this wore out then you will have water pressure lose. Replace if need be. Also, check the feeder water spout that runs the upper spray army, it could be pluged. GB...stewbsion

Dishes on top shelf do not get clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my answer

Top sprayer is not cleaning dishes. No water is coming out on the dishes.


There may be one of two problems here and you're going to have to stick your head inside the dishwasher to solve either of them by yourself. First, in the back of the washer is a tube that goes up to the top shelf. The sprayer tube fits OVER the mouth of the other tube and then carries the water to the arm. Sometimes the support brackets for this tube become dislodged and the sprayer tube just droops but doesn't connect with the water tube. Check this first and reattach the brackets.
If this is not the problem, you might have to remove the sprayer arm (should be a screw or bolt under the arm) and flush it at the sink. There may also be pieces of paper or fragments of bone or fruit and vegetable peels stuck in the spray openings. If these won't slush out, you'll need to remove them with tweezers.
I hope this helps. It always works for me. If I have helpee, please come back and rate my suggestion!

My dishwasher does not clean my dishes good


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Usually in the center of the spray arm is a wing nut. Simply unscrew this to remove the arm(s). Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

I know this isnt the same model, they dont carry your manual as of yet. But it does have some suggestions to look at on page 17. I had the same problem and I looked really carefully and found my sprayer arm was blocked. I cleaned it out and havent had a problem with it again. I do check it regular now.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher - top shelf not getting dishes clean


Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.
