Hi, it’s Den. we’d like to explain you how to change your glass trap on your dishwasher. It’s a really easy job. Let me explain you how we do it.Now, to do this repair, I open the dishwasher door up completely, remove all the items off the bottom rack and then remove the bottom rack and set it aside.
It’s also easier to remove the lower spray arm as well.
Just grasp the center of that, pull it straight up out of that center bearing and set that aside.Up next, we’ll take that arm out of that glass trap and we’re just going to turn it clockwise, quarter of a turn and then we can lift that whole assembly out of the center of the dishwasher.
Now, we’ll remove the lower spray arm’s support.
It just pops out through that opening.
We can discard the old glass trap. Now before we install the new one, check the filter, remove any built-up debris or foreign objects that may be caught in there and discard them.Up next, we’ll take the new glass trap and the lower spray arm holder.
You’ll note that there’s a little gusset on the side of that with a catch that will sit on the very top edge of that U-shaped opening. We’ll fit that support into the glass trap and snap it into place. Make sure that that gusset sits on top of that shoulder, then we’ll set the whole assembly over the top of that center portion. Press it firmly down and rotate it counter clockwise, 90 degrees until it locks in place, before we reinstall that little lower spray arm, check for any cracks or blocked passages and clear those if necessary.
We’re going to press that down firmly so that these two catches will fit over the lip of that support and it should turn freely.We can then put the lower rack into position and your repair is complete.
