Resolved Question:

I have a 10 year old moffat dishwasher. The centre spray that comes up from the bottom has 3 part that pop up to spray. The top one which is the smallest has come out and left my dishwasher unable to reach the top dishes. I know that if it came out there must be a way of putting it back in, can you help please?

Hi Im John I will help you with the d/w problem.

Is this the spray arm in your d/w ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, that is the one. However, I want only this question answered and do not wish to sign up for anything else.

Cheers

You don't have to sign up for anything , To remove the spray arm the complete spray arm unscrews from the tub.It turns to the left to unscrew.
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

This spray arm is threaded into a part under the tub/liner of the dishwasher. A rubber coupler on top of the motor and pump assembly is what this spray arm assembly screws/threads into. To change/remove this spray arm, simply push a flat screwdriver through the hole in the bottom of the spray arm and twist it off. It should be a regular thread.
