I discovered that, except for the central tower, all the spray holes were all plugged with I took to be calcium deposites . Using the parts diagram located on this web site, I removed parts. All parts can be removed either by hand, nutdriver or small wrench however you do need a star drive (simliar to an allen wrench) to remove the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. The Lower Spray Arm unsnaps from the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. I laboriously removed the deposits from each part down as far as the support filter. The upper spray arm can be removed by unsnapping the hub. the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter is a closed unit so. I purchased a new one. The process is very labor intensive. Next time I am going to consider purchasing all new parts or calling a repair man.

The job was a snap. The panel removed easily, it only required the right type of screw driver. The hard part was getting the new handle to fit correctly into the right spot, but that only took a few minutes.

I didn't know how to put in the new one clips until I looked up a picture of them in place, on-line. Once I saw the picture, it was a matter of clipping the new ones in place.

I removed the bottom rack by simply rolling it out of the dishwasher, and removed (unsnapped) the rotating spray assembly. It was easily snapped into the center of the new dishrack. Next, I removed the roller stops from the rail holding the upper dishrack by following the marks (arrows) on the stops. I rolled out the upper dishrack, and rolled in the new one. Finally, I snapped the roller stops back into position.

Remove the lower panel by taking out the 2 screws on top and 2 at the bottom of the panel. To diagnose the problem, verify that there is water supplied from the valve under the sink to the water supply valve under the DW. This can be done by turning off the valve under the sink, disconnecting the copper supply line under the DW then turning on the valve under the sink to see if water passes through the line.

The float switch is located on the left front (as you face the DW). This is activated by the float in the tub. Check to be certain that the float is not restricted. The contact point on the switch is a spring loaded plunger. It should depress as the float rises and pop back out as the float returns to its low point.

Turn off the circuit breaker for the DW. To remove the switch, pull off the two electric leads from the switch. Mark the top lead with a piece of tape. Then remove the one philips screw. Replace the switch by reversing the procedure. Note that you have aligned the float contact point with the float.

The most difficult part is learning how to unsnap the plastic retainers at each end of the steel sliders on each side of the dish rack. Push the end caps to the outside and the plastic inserts will snap open and slide off the ends of the rails in two pieces (note how they were oriented so you can replace them later). The caps must be removed from both ends of each rail. Slide out the basket. slide the rails out. Pull the old rollers off the pins. Place the new rollers into position. A smart rap with the palm of your hand should snap the rollers onto the pins. If you have done it correctly, the rollers will not pull off the mounting pins. You could also place a small block of wood against the roller and use your hand or a small hammer or weight to snap the pins into place. Assemble in reverse order.
