Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
The upper arm of my Frigidaire Professional Series dishwasher came off. I don't know how. The are doesn't look like anything is cracked or broken. When I try to push it back in place, the receiving swivel recedes into the dishwasher roof. Any idea how to put the arm back on? I appreciate the help.
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.

The upper most spray arm simply scrws into place onto the spray arm manifold, you shouldnt have to , but if needed you can oull unit out from under counter and hold pressure down o nthe manifold as you try to crew on from underneath, part number 154478201 if you need to replace the spray arm

I want you all to know that I pulled the round piece off - it would not unscrew, but did screw it back into place.

SOURCE: upper spray arm broke off
I hope it did not break, only came off. I had the same problem. You have to unscrew the round part from the ceiling of the dishwasher, put the three pieces together, easy, and then screw the whole thing back. No tools needed. Top rack can stay on while working. It helps if the dishwasher is empty. If the threading is good, this should solve the problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - Are you referring to the spray arms will not rotate? If so, do you noticed if the spray arm is cracked or broken? Will it rotate slowly? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board or wiring connections to the dispenser, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.
