If your dishwasher is the same as our GLD2440REB1, the sort of star-shaped piece on the ceiling unscrews.  Then there's a sort of flangey washery kind of guy that you can poke through the star-shaped piece and snap into the arm.  Then screw the whole thing back on to the pipe.  I know this works, because I do it every time the arm falls off.  Which is every time I run the dishwasher.  ... Oh, crud.

Before I order a new part (spotted for US$7.65 plus shipping), I'm going to try putting some thread or a pin or something in there to hold it together.  Maybe some epoxy.

Am I a cheapskate or what?  :-)

    Okay, the thread broke, and Her Indoors says to send for a new part (154478201 (Spray arm, 3rd level) for the GLD2440REB1 (and GLD3450RD; 154478202 (Spray arm, 3rd level, grey) for the GLD2445RF)).  (You can get the parts manuals from Electrolux via a Google search on the model number.)

    I sent away to Sears Parts Direct.  The part was US$8.something plus shipping, but RetailMeNot had a coupon code for 20% off (I think it was 80007).  It's held together for a couple of weeks so far.

Dishwasher lower spray arm falls off

These parts can be replaced easily and reasosnably cheaply for example the top spray arm is about £20.00p. But you need the back water feed tube as well as the lower spray arm which should come as one package. (depending on model i'm going by bosch). You shouldn't have to pay more than £30.00p + p&p. Hope this helps.

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.

Top spray nozel not moving water on my kenmore dishwasher

pump is more than likely clogged

in the dishwasher you will see you lower spray arm. take it off. now going up the back is the supply tube. you need to pop it off of thed top then the back and turn it clockwise to get it off the motor. after you do that you will see 4 torx screws. take all 4 out and you will be able to remove the fine filter. thats the normally grey piece with all the slots. after you remove the filter you will see two more torx screws. remove them they are for 2 seperate pieces one is the foreigh food seperator and the other is the chopper cover. remove both of them and clean the whole thing out. as yiou are puytting it back together. let me know if you get stuck

Middle spray arm not spraying

unlikely that 2 dishwashers would have the same fault but is of course possible
could it be to do with how you are loading? quite common is for a knife or similiar to stick down thro the rack and jam the arm

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.

Water not spraying hard enough

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.
