Frigidaire upper spray arm assembly - confused. Help please!
« on: February 11, 2013, 09:37:05 PM »
Opened the dishwasher tonight to find the upper spray arm resting in the top tray on some bowls. It looks like this:



The part that's left in the top of the dishwasher looks like this:



Apparently the real part looks like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Frigidaire-154754502-Upper-Assembly-Washer/dp/B00545AC8Q/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

From what I understand, the upper spray assembly does come apart, and you can just snap it back in. But I've tried pushing the arm into the sprocket looking thing, and I can't get it to snap into anything. What gives? It doesn't look like any clips are broken or snapped.

This is for a Frigidaire PLD4555RFC3.

Thanks!

Looks like you are missing the pin/ connector for the two pieces. Check the fiter/sump area?  :D

Thanks for the fast response! Okay, I found this pin in the filter area:



What's the connector look like? I can't find anything else down there.

Funny enough, that pin wasn't part of the upper sprayer arm assembly. Do you happen to know where it's supposed to go? It was sitting in the trap/filter.

It did not seem as if that was the part needed, but you claimed you were good to go. If anything, maybe upper rack assembly? Did you fix upper spray arm? :D

Hey guys - I did figure it out! The spray arm keeps coming off during washes, so I'm going to replace it with the newer version sold on Amazon. It's apparently one piece, so this shouldn't happen anymore.
