Customer Question

After I emptied my dishwasher (model #EDW2030), I found what looks like a plastic straw with a flared end. It did not melt and must be a part of the dishwasher. Do you know what it is? Can I put is in its place myself? Can I run the dishwasher without it?

Are you sure it is from the unit as nothing on the unit matches that description.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Can't think of anything else it could have come from. I'll take a chance and run the washer. Wish me luck. Thanks for response. Keep this ipen and I will let you know how it works.
