SOURCE: lower arm and filter assem kenmore 587.16152400

The filter needs to go back on first, then the arm has notches so that it'll tight down, you need to rotate the arm till it falls in place, then the white handle is used (Goes around base of arm) to tighten it into place.

SOURCE: want to remove the spray arm and clean the filter


Below is a link showing how to clean out the sump area below the spray arms. If you want to clean the top filter when taking it apart, vinegar works to dissolve a lot of the deposits.

Lower spray arm dislodged during wash cycle

Hello Megan Quintas,

I have had the bottoms of the Frigidaire DISHWASHER rotted out AND their center-shaft NEVER LOST IT'S vertical alignment...

So my personal opinion...

You are good once you replace your defective spray arm..

Put your model+make+spray+arm

or better yet the ORIGINAL PART NUMBER to get three estimates...

Good luck, happy hunting!!

How do I repair a frigidaire dishwasher that will not drain

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is not draining. This could be a possible problem with your filter being clogged or a restriction within your drain line. I would suggest you check to make sure there is no knot or restriction in your drain line. You can also locate the filter at the bottom of your tub under the spray arm and check to make sure it is not full of debris. You can lift on the tab to remove the filter and clean it out. If those appear to be in proper working order I would suggest it could be an issue with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend having a professional technician out to diagnosis your dishwasher to avoid unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

After removing the bottom assembly from my frigidaire dishwasher to clean it, I reassembled it and now the spray arm won't work although the machine fills and drains. I found a small white ball in the...

The ball goes under item 10 this picture:

You can enlarge the picture once opened. The Expert Gene Strote was correct. I just like this picture better because you can instantly expand it with explorer.

Manual Number 5995477345.pdf is a service manual not for your unit but will show you the sump and were the ball goes. (registration required)

Help with dishwasher filter replacement

the model number is located on the right side of the dishwasher, where the door fits into it. The filter is placed into the bottom first, then the spray arm support is put ontop, and turned a quarter turn to lock in place

Dishwasher doesn't seem to be cleaning. Detergent cup opens, but detergent oozes down the inside of the door. Dishwasher is Frigidaire FDB956RBC

More then likely your water is not circulating properly.
Can be a tricky fix, Usually involves turning the unit upside down and replacing the impeller.
Could also be something blocking the jets (Little holes in the Water arms) Poke them with a small toothpick or something small to make sure the water is flowing good threw them.
Most of my experiences it has been the impeller wheel that usually goes bad.

Hope this helps.
Good luck!

Top arm won't turn

Approximatly how old is your dishwasher?
First step, clean the filter that is underneath the lower sprayer arm. You will probably need to remove several screws to clen it.
While the filter is off, inspect for debris in the pump area (watch out for broken glass that are almost invisible in the water left behind.)
Inspect the impeller for damage and repair/replace.
Reassemble the filter and spray arm - retest.
If the problems remain, the problem is often a failing (weak) pump motor and that is your next step unless you are going to replace with an Enery Star model.
Good Luck!

Washing properly

Hello there should be a filter in the bottom of the washer should be under the spray arm check that frist and see if that solves your not washing as well, There also could be a little water problem is your water good clean water with not much iron, Theres a couple of more things we can look into I would have to look into the manuals and see, Before I can do that I would need to know what model and series it is, Well if cleaning the filters don't work get back to me.

Amsanta, sounds like something got hung up on the heating element, stopped the lower spray arm and things started to melt. The lower spray arm, part number, 154414101 is easy to change out. There is also a lower spray arm support 154294101, don't know if you will need that. I believe on your model the lower spray arm just snaps on. There is a tab on the filter screen that will rotate to unlock and the filter screen will lift out. Now the lower spray arm support is accessable. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to get it fixed under warranty. Catriver.

Mama, cleaning the filter on this is pretty easy. If you look at the lower spray arm, I believe that it just snaps on. Should be some clips on the lower part holding it on. Remove the spray arm and grab the filter trap handle. Turn it to the right or left 45 degrees and it will lift out. It's keyed to lock on and off. Now you can remove the filter and look right down into the sump. Just take your time and remember the position order so you can reverse it when putting it back together..This is for the model back.
