The problem started with my dishes slowly becoming less and less clean wash after wash. To diagnose the problem, I turned on the dishwasher and waited for the clean cycle to start. After it did I opened the door and peaked inside to see the top and bottom spray arms were moving but not the middle one. I took it out and stuck it under the faucet to make sure it wasn't clogged and everything seemed good. So after much deliberations, I decided that it must be the pump, so I replaced it. NOPE! That was costly. I then read something on the internet about how the middle arm has two jets on the bottom so I checked mine and sure enough, they were clogged. I tried to clean it but I could not get the junk out. So I decided to but the spray arm and the arm holder(because I damaged it)and now my dishwasher runs great.
