Found the answer here, which says "This goes on the back of your upper wash arm. You may have to glue it back in place with super glue however" and shows this picture.

  • I'm glad you found your answer! Please transcribe (or copy/paste) some of the relevant bits from that link to your answer here. As it stands, this is a link-only answer since there isn't much here to tell the next person what's up, and if that link dies (but... links never die!) well, this doesn't help the next guy very much.
