What is this part called, and how easy will it be to replace?

I really don't know much about dishwashers, so I apologize in advance for not knowing the right terminology.

The symptom is the dishes on the top rack aren't being washed well (if at all). Wife put a rolled up bit of paper towel in a cup and it came out bone dry - making us believe the sprayer which shoots water to that level just isn't functioning.

So I pulled the dishwasher apart, I've soaked all the sprayers in vinegar, etc. But as I was putting it back together I noticed this part (here's an image of it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CG...P1OEB6pj4YBAMc). Clearly, the point is that when the top shelf is all the way pushed back, the sprayer connects to this rubber part, forming a seal, and letting the water flow through. However, the rubber is super hard and corroded, probably affecting the seal (and maybe causing the water to spill around the seal and not fully go through the sprayer). As you can tell from the picture, the little rubber flap that normally comes out when the sprayer is pulled out doesn't even flap down anymore.

Ok. So I have an Electrolux dishwasher, model # EWDW6505GS0 (more here). Any thoughts?

Look like part #32 under motor and pump.

Cheaper here...https://www.partsips.com/tubing-assembly-part-154515602 after a quick google search


Edit: I had a similar setup on an LG and I was able to pull that arm out and replace it in 30 sec. It just clipped into a metal bracket at the back of the DW. Yours looks like it has a slip in seal at the bottom near the pump. You might have to transfer some parts from the old to the new though. You'll also have to remove the top rack for access.

If that's a Bosch, I've found that all the gray plastic parts needed to be replaced in mine, and they were surprisingly affordable and easy to install. Made it work like new.
