Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16992 Built-in Dishwasher
I looked in the dishwasher yesterday and there was a slim cone shaped piece at the bottom of the dishwasher. I can't figure out where it is supposed to go. It is about 6 inches long with fins on the bottom flange. Any ideas
Yes, I was able to get it fixed.
The spray tower actually fits in the rack (I had thought it fit in the top of the lower spray arm - wrong!)
If you were to look at the spray tower itself, it has 2 little clip like plastic protrusions that with a little twist will clip onto the lower rack!
Push the lower rack in and you can see where the center would be, (right over the middle of the lower spray arm ).
Now pull out the rack and take the spray tower and slip it under the rack up thru the bottom in the position you noted was the center (from above).
Now with the spray tower in place, slide the rack back inside the dishwsher and you will see that the tower will be sitting directly over the top of the exact middle of the lower spray arm.

That is your filter cone, and you will find a small hole to place it in if you remove your bottom dish rack. You really should replace that asap to avoid clogging your spray heads with food.
