Dishwasher no longer cleaning dishes

I have no prior experience fixing any appliance but figured I might be able to save this old dishwasher. I read some where on this web site that I needed to replace the upper and lower spray arm, and someone suggested replacing the filter as well. I ordered the parts by looking at partselect.com's picture of the dishwasher and read someone's explanation that I needed to remove the filter housing to replace the filter.

The upper spray arm comes off by gently pulling down on the spray arm. I put the new one in its place.

The lower spray arm had a thin, large (about 2" diameter) round screw holding it and its housing in place. I removed the large, flat screw and the lower arm came off. Below that was the filter housing. I unscrewed the six screws, took off the housing, replaced the filter, and put the housing back on.

Then I removed the lower arm from the plastic thing that was holding it, removed the stainless steel heat plates and put them on the new washer arm. Put the washer arm back on the thing that held it, and screwed the washer arm assembly in place with the large plastic screw.

Dishes would not come out clean.

Pretty much just snapped things into place. The new spray arms solved the problem. The old ones were clogged, and there's no way to clean them from the inside (dumb design, in my opinion). Happy times!

CustomerJim from Three Rivers, MI

Dishes were left covered with soap and not completely clean at end of cycle

The top and bottem spray arms plus the secondary filter located on the bottom of the dishwasher were 80% blocked with dishwasher soap which would not allow water to rinse the dishes completely.
The upper spray arm had fallen off, so I was able to quickely replace it with the new arm and clip by simply inserting the clip into the spray arm and pushing it into place.
The lower arm came off easily by turning the large knob on top off it and pulling it off. After removing the arm I was able to access the three screws that release the secondary filter cover. The screws required a set of star sockets to turn them.
I then put the filter cover on and replaced the screws. I placed the lower arm assembly back on and ran the dishwasher. It worked like new again.
The photos and descriptions in the parts catagories made it very easy to find the correct parts that I needed. I highly recommend Partselect to anyone who is a do-it your-selfer!

CustomerTracy from jacksonville, FL

Sprayer arm broken off

Since the sprayer arm had so graciously landed on my clean glasses, there was little prep involved. After cutting the power at the box, I took a towel and cleaned some crystallized 'gunk' from around the area. Following the diagram from PartSelect for the model, I inserted the plastic clip and 'popped' the arm into place in the top of the dishwasher. It was embarassingly simple, and I'm so glad I was able to fix the beast for $20 or less.
