Upper spray arm detached

The upper spray arm has come off and I am sure no parts are missing but I cannot seem to be able to re-attach it? Any advice much appreciated.

    Thank you. Do you know if this missing small piece is a spare part that I can buy on it's own or is it part of the upper spray arm or part of the wash arm itself?

The upper arm clips onto the upper drawer not onto the nozzles!

Yes there is a peice that is real small that goes on the very top of the wash arm and presses into the wash arm peices to hold it together, that peice is probably missing.

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).

Top spray arm does not spin


The upper spray arm is powered by water from a tube that runs up the back of your machine on the inside. If the connection is not aligned, then the water can't get to the spray arm. My children use to knock mine out of kilter when they loaded the lower section. It's easy to see if the supports are not attached to the upper rack and a simple snap will get them back in place.
It may also be that the spray arm jets are clogged.Depending on the model, the upper spray arm generally has a nut or thumb/butterfly screw (plastic) that you remove and then remove the arm. I always soak mine in hot soapy water and then flush with hot water. If debris such as pieces of paper, bone, peelings are in there, you'll need to take a tweezer or toothpick to remove them from the jets. The upper spray arm usually has the same apparatus and you can follow the same procedure..
I hope these suggestions help your problem. If so please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Water not pumping to upper spray arm


First,

See this link for a picture of the upper spray arm and manifold assembly.

http://www.apwagner.com/index.php?main_page=model_lookup&model_num=KUDP02IRBL0&model_id=163723&diagram_id=380403

Referring to parts 1, 6, and 9, make sure everything is attached, secure, and lines up when the upper rack is pushed back into place.

It's possible the pump is obstructed and not delivering water to the upper arm, but the more likely cause is a displaced upper arm feeder tube. If no luck, start checking for obstructions in the feeder tube, manifold and the spray arm.

Upper spray arm failure


Easy to solve!
(1) Remove the drawers to give yourself room to work
(a) bottom drawer just comes right out -- but you knew that
(b) Carefully unclip small plastic retainer caps at the ends of the metal "glides" for the top drawer. Then slide the caps out of the glides. Then remove the top drawer.
(2) Unscrew the "gear-like" plastic fitting into whose hole you were sticking your finger when you felt that small cylindrical ring.
(3) Now that you've got access to the ring, the solution is obvious -- use it to snap the upper arm back into the gear-like fitting. When you're done, the arm will rotate freely in the fitting.
(4) Put everything back together and enjoy the fact that you didn't have to pay some yobbo $75 to come to your hous and do this for you!

(HINT: When screwing the gear-like fitting back into place, use the old machinist's trick of pressing gently and screwing backwards until you feel a click. The threads will now be aligned for you to screw things together the right way. If you do not do this, you might experience frustration reattaching fitting -- since the piece it screws onto is spring loaded.)

Lower Spray Arm doesn't Rotate on Siemens SE55A560 Dishwater


upper and lower connection should be same type of setup
missing part thus?
This sometimes is also caused by not driving in right the rack (closing properly) mating the connections tight. My old Bauknecht had this little problem.
Unfortunately I have no manual with parts drawings.
Still warranty?
Parts shop nearby?
Upper connection does have rubber ring or is a conical seal?
And when you fill the basket, no teaspones or such dropping too far down? My error many times.........
