Upper Spray Arm Fell Off

\015 The upper spray arm has fallen off of my Frigidare 4000 series FDB4315LFCO and I was wondering if this is something I should be able to fix myself. I didn't immediately see a way to get it reconnected and no schematic was provided with the manual.\015

Answers :

If you are referring to the arm on the top of the dishwaser (not the one under the top basked) it snaps in. What probably happened is that it fell off and the plastic nut flipped around. The gray plasting thing on the top (that looks like a flower) will unscrew and you can turn the nut around and snap it back on and then re-attach the entire piece.
I had the same problem.\015\012 You can fix it yourself. Find a parts dealer on the frigidaire\015\012web-site and take them the model number of your dishwasher. the part I\015\012needed was described as "arm upper spray nut", part # 154607802.\015\012 If you look at the top of the dishwasher, you should see a round nut, 3\015\012in. diameter (it has a keyed/slotted outer edge). For me, the spray arm had disconnected from this nut. The sprayer had been held in place by a\015\012plastic piece with catches that held it in place. These plastic catches broke, letting the arm fall off. I believe these broke because of hard\015\012water/calcium build-up, as I found a nugget of calcification as large as the\015\012tip of my middle finger in the bottom drain screen. Remove the nut by turning counter-clockwise, replace it with\015\012the new assembly. (hand tightening\015\012worked for me). Good Luck

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump
