How to remove spray arm base, or heating element, to remove and replace the filter & gasket assembly in the bottom of the dishwasher? I see no screws on the spray arm base.
To remove the lower spray arm you would need to pull straight up on the arm as it is clipped into place. For the heating element removal you would need to disconnect the power and remove the lower kick plate. Disconnect the wires from the element and remove the nuts holding it in place. Lift element out.
While removing the old gasket, I broke the front pin that holds the gasket. Can I replace the pin or how do I seal it from front?
Answer Hello Shah,
GE came out with a service bulletin regarding the coarse filter studs breaking off. Their fix is the coarse filter service dome WD22X10023. To install the coarse filter service dome, remove the spray arm and place the dome over the spray arm pedestal on the bottom of the tub. Screw the spray arm back into the pump connector. The spray arm hub will hold the dome and filter in place.
