Not getting dishes cleaned

Seemed like I was getting more food stuck on my dishes than cleaned off. Because I've had this problem before, I already knew how to remove the lower spray arm and take off the large white housing beneath the spray arm with a special nut driver (shaped like a star) to get at the parts inside. The white plastic filter that circles the lower sprayer center was totally clogged and bent out of shape and was preventing the spray arm from turning. The microfilters built into the large white housing part that I removed using the special driver were also clogged from years of use. I cleaned the microfilters by agitation in water with lots of vinegar, poked the calcium deposits out of the holes that were clogged in the lower spray arm, and put the whole thing back together with the new plastic filter I bought from this site. Works like new again.

Dishwasher stoped spinning dishes were dirty

unsrewed the plastic hub in the middle of the lower spray arm, removed the spray arm, took the screws out of the filter cover, removed and replaced the filter, put the cover and screws back and the lower spray arm and then the hub. the only thing I have a queston about is the proper location for the two plastic seals.

Not cleaning

Pulled both dish racks out then the spray arms. From there took everything else out down to the top of the motor. Replaced both spray arms and anything that a filter or a screen in it. Got everthing back together and ran the unit full of dishes with no issues at all.
