Steve: Hi, it’s Steve from PartSelect. Today we are going to show you how to change the
spinner kit on your dish washer. It’s a really easy job. All we’re going to need
is a small flat blade screw driver. Let me show you how we do it. Now to replace that
upper spinner, first thing we are going to need to do is remove both of the racks, to
remove the upper rack we need to remove the rack stops first just press the locking tab
lift up on it, and then slide the rack right out.
Next we need to remove the lower spray arm, it’s hold in place where the locking nut
that is left hands so we are going turn it clockwise to loosen it, just lift the spray
arm off and set it aside. Now the next piece we need to remove is this spray arm tower
its held in place at the top of the tub with a couple of spring clips and as well at the
back with a couple of spring clips. They lock on to joined tabs on the spray tower. So,
we’ll first release those, now we are going to turn that whole tower assembly clockwise
as looking down at it.
Disengage from pump cover if you look at the centre of that pump cover you’ll see where
the engagement tabs line up. So once we align those up so that they are free we just lift
it off. Then we’ll take it and set it on a suitable work surface. Now with the tower
assembly out we can see where the upper spinner is and it sits on a bearing that’s held
in place with the locking pin. We take out our small flat blade screw driver go on to
the head of that pin right pry out wood on it.
We’ve released the old spinner. Now we’ll take the new spinner with the jagged side
up you’ll notice on the back side of it there is a beveled edge to that hole that
the bearing will drop into. Just insert that in the spray tower, and we’ll take a locking
pin snap in to place, now put the spinner in place, we are ready to reinstall the spray
Now before we put the spray tower back in first thing we’ll want to do is just tweak
those locking tabs a little tighter and we’ll set the spring towers in place push it down in the centre till it lines up lock it
in place. Next we’ll engage those tabs, reinstall the lower spring arm again its left
hand thread so we are going to turn it counter clockwise to tighten it, so it runs freely.
We’ll reinstall the racks, slide the rails out, engage the rear wheels first, and we’ll
pull the rails out far enough so we put the rack stops in.
Make sure the little locking tab and those racks stops, has got enough tension on to
lock it in place. Next the bottom rack and our repair is complete. Told it was an easy job, thanks for watching and good luck
with your repair.
