The upper arm was a two second fix by putting the snap in the arm and attaching it to the dishwasher, top side. The Bottom was a different story. The arm itself is easy enough to replace, once the nut is off, and you separate it from the pump cover. I had to completely clean parts 4, 6 and 7 so things would work properly again. The pump cover/filter part that is $80+ will come apart in two halves allowing you to clean the filter screens in it if it is caked solid. I used a thin screw driver to un-snap it. The screws you take out will hold it in place again when you have the screen etc. cleaned or replaced. Careful not to force stuff, but gentle scrubbing can get build up scrapped up.
