Question and Answers

Q:

Dishwasher lower wash arm

A:

Kitchenaid dishwashers were made to handle just about anything. You mention stripped parts, well, that is possible in any situation. I am attaching a video on installation of the lower spray arm, I hope this helps. An expert response to your specific model is within two business days.

Thanks for trying, but the video did not pertain to our specific K A model.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You are likely turning the hub/spray arm nut in the wrong direction.

To remove the lower spray arm you will need to hold the spray arm from rotating and turn the spray arm nut clockwise (CW) until you can lift the spray are off. To install; place the spray arm over the lower hub and rotate the spray arm nut counter clockwise (CCW) while holding the spray from turning.

The threads could be stripped if the spray arm is not sitting on the hub correctly and turned the wrong way or cross threaded.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for getting back to me. My husband did not give up and as a result, the dishwasher is fixed! He was turning the hub/spray nut correctly but this time he removed the top rack as well (and he is not a physically big guy) so as to get better access to the lower screw, grabbing it firmly with pliers and pulling up as he was turning the male threaded plastic screw. So, thank you for getting back to us!
