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

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.

    yes, i have the same problem.. the screw on part is not the problem. it is the white plastic snap-on thing that holds the spary arm comes off easily. Do i need to order a whole new spray arm??

    Had same problem. Unscrewed and snapped rotating arm back on. Originally looked like a piece was missing, I guess its designed to snap off rather than break.

    thanks to love_2bhate - just did as he said. Even with my handymen's ability (0) it was easy. Took me a while to put a round piece back, but it is me ;-))

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

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.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Professional Series runs loud now and the dishes aren't clean when it finishes its cycle.


Check the water supply line for kinks, check bottom strainer/drain inside to remove particles/trash blocking water from exiting to pump washer motor, be sure no items block rotation of washer heads. Good luck.

The top shelf is not getting clean. There is food residue on the glassware that was not there at the start of the wash.


Hi,

The most likely answer is that your upper rotor spray arm isn't spinning or spraying water. They aren't powered by a motor - they are driven by water pressure. The most common reason for them not spinning is a blockage somewhere. The lower rotor arm is spraying dirt from the plates in the lower rack onto the glassware and there is no spray from the upper rotor arm to rinse it off.

Check the small spray holes on the top of the upper rotor arm. If they are blocked, use a large pin or a cocktail stick to clean them out. If they aren't blocked, check to see whether the upper rotor arm is spinning by following these steps:

1. Note the exact position of the upper spray arm or spin it so that it is running precisely left to right or front to back
2. Close the door
3. Start any wash cycle
4 After it has finished filling with water and starting cycling the water, open the door and note the position of the upper spray arm again.

If the spray arm is in the exact same position as when you closed the door it's almost definite that it's not spinning. In this event, cancel the wash and do the above test one more time just to eliminate the element of pure chance.

Try the above tests and checks and then post back with the results if you need any further assistance. If posting back, please include the full model number of your Frigidaire dishwasher

Regards,
BElectric.

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...
