I have a dishwasher leaking at the botton of the door. Replaced upper and lower door seals. Still leaks. I removed the lower spray arm and the lower and upper bearings seem to be worn out. Especially the top one. When I run the machine with no lower spray arm, it doesn't leak. Replace the spray arm and worn out nylon bearings, it leaks. My thoughts are, the worn out bearings are letting water excape through a route it is not suppose to be coming from, therefore causing an ocean or wave effect, forcing the water out over the lip behind the closed door. Could this be possible? Thanks, Bobby
Answer Bobby, You're on target, great deduction. Replace both bearings 9742946 , 3376846 and check the bottom side of the spray arm insert for damage as well, replace it if necessary.
nylon radial bearing ring disentigrated/nut ok/lower split ring worn...would this be cause of dishwasher not draining completely ??
Answer Tom, No, the spray arm components would not normally cause a drain issue in a dishwasher, you will want to replace them in order to maintain proper washabilty. You may want to start by disconnecting the drain hose from the plumbing under the sink and drain the dishwasher, this will usually clear any minor clogs in the pump and drain hose. You may need to disconnect the drain hose from the pump assembly and check the "Drain Check Valve" 675238 for clogs or debris. Good Luck and Thanks
If I purchase the nut do I need a new Nylon Radial Bearing ring?
Answer Hello. If your nylon radial bearing ring is ok, then you can reuse it. If it is wore or broke, then replace it. Hope this helps.
