Spray holes clogged by hard water deposits

I took off old upper spray arm by gently prying it and the retainer off the upper section of the dishwasher. When I first did this, two prongs of the original retainer clip broke off so I had to order a new retainer clip. The new arm fit perfectly in place and was easily held in place by the new retainer clip. This is a very simple and easy repair. The only tool I used was a flat headed screwdriver to pry off the old arm, but one could probably pry it off manually also.

Upper washer arm holes plugged up

The upper washer arm can be removed by just snapping it out of place. Just take a screw driver and put in underneath the spray arm and pry it out of its socket. It will just snap out its place. Sometimes this retainer will break so make sure you have this retainer before trying to remove the upper spary arm. I removed the spray arm and back flushed it out with a garden hose to get the debri out of the washer arm. The holes are all clean now. Washes much better now. To put in back on just put the washer arm back where it goes and then just snap the clip back in its hole. Pretty easy fix.

Spray arms were split in the seams & clogged

After I figured out how to remove the spray arms, and filter guard (that was the hardest part) it was a piece of cake. Just a matter of snapping the spray arm into the filter guard, and replacing it the dishwasher, and tightening it with the screw in retainer. Upper arm was also easy to replace after removing the top rack.
