ANSWER David, There should be some "wobble" in the spray arm assembly(s), but not as much as you imply. Here is the reccomended procedure : Removing the Inner Feed Tube and Lower Spray Arm The Inner Feed Tube is held in place by two (2) screws. One is located on the inner top of the dishwasher tub. The second is located on the back of the dishwasher tub.1. Remove the two (2) dishracks from the dishwasher tub. 2. Remove the two (2) screws securing the Inner Feed Tube to the inside of the dish washer tub. 3. Rotate the rear feed cap ¼ turn clockwise. 4. The entire inner water tube assembly and the lower spray arm assembly can now be removed from the dishwasher tub." The "thumb screw is a standard thread( turn it counterclockwise) and the hub is a "twist fit" on the hub of the feed tunnel. Thanks and Good Luck
