Whirlpool 3Rd level wash spinner kit ??!!
The little spinner thingy (3Rd level wash spinner kit ) has broken off again!

A year or so ago I had it replaced and it took the guy 2 or 3 trips to figure it out. If I order this part how easy is it to replace? I am assuming the whole machine has to come out ??? I have been putting this off but I feel encouraged by your forum so I will order the part if I can bolster up the courage!! Thanks!

As you can see on the break down diagram the spinner is attached to the water feed tube with a special pin. Looks like you have to remove the upper dish rack and disassemble the water feed tube from the rear panel.

- The part number for the 3rd level spinner is AP3177952

Thanks Gene. Looks like I can do this without pulling the unit out!!

A newbie question but am I correct in my assumption that the water feed tube can be removed from the inside without pulling the unit out? Thanks in advance...heymate

Yes, it can. Remove both dish racks first.

Thanks again Gene. I have ordered the part. My last (I hope) newbie question is......What's the trick to removing the top rack. I have studied it but I know there must be a trick......Thankyou so much !!

You have to remove the track stop (#20 on the break down diagram) first on each side.
