My dishwasher's top rotating sprayer keeps coming loose. The screw and plastic bearing fall out and I think that it has stripped out the end where it seats into the top of the washer. Any ideas on how to anchor this in? Adhesive? A larger screw? The plastic bearing is Part No. 568 and the screw is Part No. 569. If I replace the conduit arm (Part No. 585), will that give it a new, clean spot to screw in too? How difficult is it to replace this arm?

I have a Bosch dishwasher and the upper arm that spins and dispenses water has come off. There is a bracket on the back wall with 2 protruding pieces and an open whole in the middle which seems like the water comes out of it. There are 2 metal "clips" on the side of this braket which seems like the plate part of the spining arm should be able to attach to it.. I cannot figure out how..Any helo would be apprecated..


On Bosh dishwasher you just slide the upper arm vertically until it snaps in place. The arm attachment will snap automatically into the clips, onto upper dishrack, unless the upper arm is damaged ... Dishwashers

How do i put the lower spray arm back together? I had to replace the top screw part and it seems to stand up to high. I have a small white plastic ring, a larger white split ring and the arm itself. I have tried every configuration to put this back together but it is not right - the new "screw" part number is the same as the original.

The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4.

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

I followed 'Mindcell's' advice on fixing my Kenmore QuietGuard 4 dishwasher, and I managed to clear out all the food particles that have accumulated. I suspect that is probably why the middle spray arm has not been very effective. However, in my repair, as I was screwing in the star screw that holds the cover of the foodscreen (the lower most star screw), I managed to overturn it and break it. Thus, the food screen is only held by a plastic clip, and from what I can gather, pressure from a

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

Miele dishwasher G2870 scm. There is an F14 fault.

Dishwasher Problem... Hey, I'm sorry I can't seem to find this information anywhere else. I'm having a similar problem with my dishwasher (also a kenmore quiet guard) and I wanted to try to clean the filter. I'm not sure how to remove the lower arm of the dishwasher. There is a kind of plastic-screw in the middle of the lower arm, is that what holds it on? I'm afraid to try twisting it because I don't want to break it. How did you get it off of yours? I hope I'm not bothering you! Thank you, Je

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?

The spray arm, above the top rack, keeps unscrewing during the wash cycle. Just the arm comes off leaving a round plastic part attached to the top. This can be unscrewed and inside is a white 'washer'. The arm can be clipped back but comes off again in the next wash. The plastic 'washer' has to be turned over to allow re-attachment. Is a washer missing from inside?

I want to remove the white plastic wheel that propels water into the circulating arms. It is held with one screw which I cannot seem to be able to loosen. This white plastic wheel has 2 small holes in the surface which are perhaps there for some special tool to hold the wheel stationary in order to loosen the screw holding this wheel in place. Underneath this gray plastic housing is the heating element. I want to remove it in order to clean accumulated deposits of gunk.
