Remove trays, remove back water tubing to top of dish washer, remove bottom spinner, twist off white piece, remove 4 allen screws, removed all drain screens, found one more allen screw hiding under all the scum in bottom, removed scaper blade cover, found scraper blade shaft broken, to installed new scrapper blades, used a needle nose pliers to hold spring loaded shaft in out position, have to install screen with cut side down into slots the center shaft of motor and let it snap back into place, this was the hardest part, not a lot of room to get to hands inside. Reassembled dishwasher.while I had it apart went ahead and replaced top spinner, unsnap and resnap new one on. Runs as good now as it did new 4 years ago. Pulled glass, thumb tacks, bobby pins, string and goop out of bottom catch pan.
