hello.... How do I reinstall the upper spray arm feed tube

Customer Question

hello....

How do I reinstall the upper spray arm feed tube on a Kenmore series 665 dishwasher? Does it go beneath the lower dishrack? and move in and out with the rack?

hitechapp :

maybe this helps

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

i tried to look at that you tube link and could not find it

hitechapp :

is it the same type?

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

The you tube given above does not seem to be working. The piece that is loose is a conical feed tube. It was lying free in the tub below the lower rack. I think it must fit in under the rack and move in an out of the cabinet with it....

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

wait the link is working now....let you know

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

I will do this also, but it does not address my question about the upper spray feed tube...

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

any more thoughts on how to reattach the spray arm feed tube?

hitechapp :

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

try this link here....it is part number 5

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

the lower spray arm has a black rubber collar or boot i did not see how the spray arm feed tube would attach to the arm below....it must have to go under the lower rack b/c it will hv to move in and out with the rack

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

thank you

hitechapp :

i believe that part goes up in wash mode and comes down when finished

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

OK then how do I reattach? it was sitting free in the bottom of the basin. Does it go beneath the lower rack?

hitechapp :

yes it does go under

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

ok I try and see what up

hitechapp :

check part make sure its not broken

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

Yes I suppose that is a possibility....

hitechapp :

ok

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

it is kind of hard to tell from the schematics ive seen to this point but it is a common model and would not be hard to get another part do yu have a good link for what is sopposed to look like undamaged?

hitechapp :

try repairclinic.com

JACUSTOMER-r3wct8dw- :

hitechapp :

hitechapp :
