Hello. I have a GE PDWT500R30BB. The clip connecting the venturi hub to the wash arm is broken. I found a replacement part for about $30 + shipping but I think these clips are super flimsy. I don't know if it broke by itself or when I was gently trying to clean the dishwasher. This clip is the same part that came already broken on our previous dishwasher before GE replaced it with this one about 2.5 years ago. I am wondering:
1. if you have recommendations for how to clean the dishwasher w/o breaking that clip.
2. If I should purchase 2 or more of the new wash arms w/ hubs so I have them on hand even though they come w/ a 1 year warranty that I think I get extended for another year w/ my credit card
3. If it is possible to do a DIY fix w/ duct tape or something of the sort. I did a quick fix to get the machine working last night but I am wondering if it would be detrimental to the machine long term to keep using tape or something else of that nature.
Thank you so much!
