Broken nozzle and upper spray arm

Hi,
The upper spray arm/nozzle fell off when I loaded too many dishes in the top rack and tried to pull the rack out. Nothing appears to be broken but there seems to be no visible way to reattach the upper spray arm. Thanks!

    Happened to us, just the arm popped off. Looks like there is a little piece in in there but nothing to screw. Does the larger piece that the arm attaches to unscrew?

    The big starry guy on the ceiling (of our GLD2440REB1) unscrews, and there's a little plastic piece in there that you can use to attach the starry guy to the arm.  Ours then falls off in the next wash.  I'm going to try and jury-rig something up to hold it together before I resort to buying a new part (US$7.65 plus shipping).

    The upper spray arm on mine bopped off, too. But I can't see anything at all to fix it to. Do you have the take the whole thing out of the counter to get at the top? AAARRGGGHHH! My dishes are not getting clean!

Thanks for the help. Like the other guy said the "ninga star" thing unscrews and using the plastic part inside I just pop the spray arm back on. Screw it back and it works again.

Ours had a sort of plastic "ninja star" thing (Google images will show you what I mean) screwed to the inside ceiling, with a sort of washer-like piece behind it.  When I got the replacement part from Sears Parts Direct, the several plastic parts clipped together.  Then I screwed the ninja star back on (the upper spray arm swivels freely).  Nearly a year later and it's still holding together.

P. S.: Check for coupon codes before you buy a part: RetailMeNot shows coupon code 80081 for $10 off from Sears Parts Direct!  I believe I used that one for a carpet cleaner hose a couple of months ago, but I had to add some other stuff (I used lawnmower parts) to bring it up to $10 before shipping in order to use the coupon code.

Why doesn't upper spray arm function properly?


A couple of scenarios could cause this problem but the simplest might be the way the dishwasher is loaded. The upper spray arm rotates when water is pumped through the vertical supply tube and into the arm. Make sure that you are not loading the lower rack with items that interfere with the rotation of the upper arm rotor. It might also be a good idea to verify that the feed tube that goes to the spray arm is securely connected to the vertical supply tube.

The spay tower in the bottom fell out. should


If the spray tower is not in place then water will not get to the spray arm for the upper rack. You should be able to re-install the tower. Look for small tabs at the bottom that fit into slots in the mounting. The tabs should snap in or lock when the tower is turned slightly. If the tabs are broken off you should replace the tower. You can use the dishwasher without it but he dishes on the top rack will not get cleaned and the pressure tot he bottom spray arm may be reduced causing dishes to not get completely coean.

Top rack does not wash dishes.


Possible causes of spray arm inefficiency:
Loading large or tall items in the lower basket which stops the arm revolving.
Upper spray arm split along seam.
Upper spray arm blocked.
Under dosing of powder causing foam and reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
Blocked strainers reducing water to circulating pump, therefore reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
inefficient wash motor impellor (faulty)

My dishwasher is not washing dishes on the top rack...


HI,

The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.


thanks,

Bosch dishwasher - top row of dishes do not get clean


There is a screen that you can remove from the sump of the dishwasher to clean. Just twist it to the left and pull it out. I have some tips that you might want to check out if this does not resolve your problem.

Test by pulling out the lower rack and run an upper load, it may just be a loading issue. Some washers are better than others, in that they have stronger moters and impelors than others. The impellor may have something like a fork, knife, or broken glass in it.

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
