It fell off

The upper arm fell off on my dishwasher due to hitting a pan I am assuming. I need to know if it can be put back on by me and what do I need to know to do this. I can't afford to have a repair man right now as my husband is going through CHEMO treatments and I don't have the extra cash. Please advise me on what to do.

Thank you very much,

Sharon

If you are unable to put it back on while the nut is still attached to the inside of the dryer, reach in and unscrew the upper arm nut. Remove it, reattach the arm to the white plastic piece and reattach the entire assembly by screwing the nut back onto the inside of the dishwasher. Very simple to do and doesn't take much strength at all. In fact, I'm usually the one that has to do it at our house, not my husband, because I can reach in and do it without removing the top rack where as he would have to remove the top rack because his arms are too big.

Upper arm spray fell off my Indesit dishwasher. How do I put it back on?


Usually, there is a small stainless steel sc rew with a knurled edge. It fixes through the central boss of the spray bar. You should find it in the bottom of the machine in the strainer, or hiding in the bottom somewhere.

Upper sprayer arm fell off


I had the same problem and it was due to cheaper tablets that corroded the plastic. Used the recommended tablets since replacing the arm (easy to refit) and now use Finish tablets all the time. Sorted.

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.

The upper sprayer arm fell off on my Frigidaire FDBB4365FC0.


I just had the same thing happen and fixed it! You might need to remove the upper rack first. In the "Roof" of the dishwasher, you should see what looks like a plastic gear wheel. It will screw off, but you will need to put a little force to get it started. Inside of the gear is a free floating plastic ring with 2 small teeth on one side. Make sure the teeth are facing down through the center hole of the wheel. Hold the ring with one finger, and snap the spray arm back in place. Just screw the assembly back into the washer and all is good... Until it falls out again...

The upper spray arm came off. How to I put it back on?


I realize this problem was in March of 2008 but if in the case someone else needs the solution. The Frigidaire website doesn't list this in there troubleshooting list either.

I had the same problem and let the upper spray arm off for a couple of months. My glasses were not getting cleaned as well so I was rewashing everything by hand. What's the point of that if I have a dishwasher.

On the inner roof of the dishwasher there is a round piece that you hook the upper spray arm to. Well it's a pain to try to just snap it on. Unscrew it by hand, get the little white plastic piece so the teeth are pointing out of the hole and snap on it on that way. One tooth at a time and it should go back on. It will be wobbly. Works like new I am so happy !

From now on be careful what you place on the top rack, if the item is too big it will cause it to snap off again. I know I will :)

Thank god I didn't get a repair man in here for something as minimal as that.

Need to remove wash module


You should be able to hold the spray arm and unscrew the center section to remove the entire assembly. Be aware of any washers or other parts that need to be re-installed when putting it back on.
