I've generally had great success with the quick cycle on my dishwasher. Now, even the normal cycle wasn't getting them perfectly clean. Checked all the sprayer holes, and cleaned debris from a few. Feeling the upper sprayer arm to the end, in search of anything more to clean out, I found a large hole in the upper spray tube connecting to the back wall. Found the part online quickly, other reviewers seemed to indicate they had the same problem. The assembly replacement comes with a hard plastic tube, rather than the soft one. That means it shouldn't burn out again. A simple screw was the only item we had to unloose and rescrew to complete the job. Mother and daughter saved the household a repair call!!!!!!! Wooo hoooo, and now the dishes are perfectly clean again on the quick cycle! All's well that ends well.
