Broken nozzle and upper spray arm

\015 Hi,\015\012The upper spray arm/nozzle fell off when I loaded too many dishes in the top rack and tried to pull the rack out. Nothing appears to be broken but there seems to be no visible way to reattach the upper spray arm. Thanks!\015

Answers :

Thanks for the help. Like the other guy said the "ninga star" thing unscrews and using the plastic part inside I just pop the spray arm back on. Screw it back and it works again.
Ours had a sort of plastic "ninja star" thing (Google images will show you what I mean) screwed to the inside ceiling, with a sort of washer-like piece behind it.  When I got the replacement part from Sears Parts Direct, the several plastic parts clipped together.  Then I screwed the ninja star back on (the upper spray arm swivels freely).  Nearly a year later and it's still holding together.

P. S.: Check for coupon codes before you buy a part: RetailMeNot shows coupon code 80081 for $10 off from Sears Parts Direct!  I believe I used that one for a carpet cleaner hose a couple of months ago, but I had to add some other stuff (I used lawnmower parts) to bring it up to $10 before shipping in order to use the coupon code.

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

I have a Kenmore, Stock 15649, approximately 14 - 15 yrs old that worked fine until the past few days. The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

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.

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 recently found the upper spray arm in the bottom of the dishwasher after running it. I can't see any piece broken off of it but I also can't see any way to put it back on. I suspect some small piece broke off in a very clean break and I just can't see it. Is this fairly easy to purchase and reattach myself? I can see the holder for it screws in and out easily.

My LG LDF7810ST dishwasher does not spray water from the middle or upper spray arms, therefore the dishes don't wash properly. Even when I ask for a top load only, the bottom spray arm is the only one moving (which I would expect that it shouldn't move at all since I've requested a top load only) I checked the spray arms as best I can to make sure that they're not clogged.
