After realizing that both upper and lower sprayer arms had long thin cracks in them, I decided to try replacing the arms instead of the more expensive option of upgrading the dishwasher altogether. The top arm popped right out with no tools, new one popped right back in place. The lower arm is easily removed after unscrewing the large ring in the middle of the arm. New arm fit right in place and screwed the ring back on. Dishwasher working like new again!
