My lower wash arm keeps coming up from the plastic cleaning…

Customer Question
My lower wash arm...

My lower wash arm keeps coming up from the plastic cleaning cup

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

FFBD2411NS0A with serial #TH22469244

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is possible. I just purchased a new mower wash arm since the old one fell off and was melted by the heating element. I have inserted the new one and it fits perfectly but once run the entire plastic center cups comes up and floats up

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, but there is a strange noise like a gurgle that comes from the dishwasher once the lower arm floats up

Hi. I will do my best to help you. Are you twisting the post that the wash arm goes into? It locks in place by twisting it.
