Removed all parts down to wash impeller following online videos and parts breakdowns (took a while to figure out how to do this). The only difficult part was separating the Discharge Pump housing from the Suction Plate. They are fitted together with friction, and a flat-blade screwdriver can push them apart. Replaced broken parts including Wash Impeller, Suction Plate, and Discharge Pump Housing. Purchased Filter Support because it was involved and appeared to have been damaged, but the new part looks identical to the old part. Purchased new o-ring & gasket to avoid digging them out of broken parts. Cleaned out the spray arms top & bottom and it now works like new!
