Wash quality was getting bad

The upper arm was held in by a torx screw. The shoulder on the screw held the arm in place. Once removed I simply swapped parts and installed screw. The lower arm was held on by a plastic nut with knurled edges that you can remove by hand. The arm simply lifted off and I swapped arms again. The rollers are held on by a curled plastic lock that grips the wire basket.

Dishwasher wasn't cleaning well, especially top rack

I wanted to get the dishwasher cleaning better and thought that maybe the accumulator needed to be replaced. I figured that I'd swap out all the spray arms as well, just for good measure.

I needed Torx screwdrivers (T15 and T20, I think - not 100% sure on that) and patience because there's really quite a lot of screws to get the accumulator out. Finally got to it and it didn't look damaged, but replaced it anyway.

The spray arms are easy - they just snap in except for the lowest one, that had a plastic nut. I ordered a replacement nut just in case I broke this one (you know how that goes) taking it off. Well, it took pliers, but it came off ok.

In the end, my dishwasher is happy and cleans much better now.

Dishes were coming out dirty... cloudy and white.

I know that I have very hard water, but am reluctant to get a softener. I hope that changing the "guts" of the water delivery to my dishwasher will help...already replaced the filters which helped too... so far, it's a little better.

Installation was a breeze. Took off the upper, middle and lower spray arms. Had to loosen screws in filter assembly to remove old manifold. Popped everything into place... had to scrape mineral deposits off clips that support manifold and upper spray arms.
Easy...

Old wash arm was cracked and had gunk in it.

The upper arm assembly removes easily by unsnapping a plastic part or two that holds it in place.
Once the arm assembly is removed, you simply remove the screw that holds the arm on, replace the arm, and replace the screw. The key thing here is that you need a "star drive". This is a screw driver or bit that has a star shaped end. I don't know what size it is.

A broken glass clogged up spray arms

I had unfortunately broken one of the spray arms trying to get the glass out. I ordered replacement parts from part select. They came in quickly. I used a small screwdriver to disconnect the old arms and reconect the new ones.
Problem solved.
Thank you

Poor rinsing

Calcium build up from our hard water had plugged varous parts of the dishwasher. Dismantling all the parts for cleaning had resulted in my braking the retaining tabs on the upper sprayer arm, that snaps into a plastic clip that attaches to a flat water distribution tube running from the base of the dishwasher up the back and then over the inside top of the compartment. Replacement is literally a snap. Make sure your get good visualizaton of how to remove the various plastic pieces from the metal or plastic clips that secure them to the inner wall of the dishwasher. Don't do the work only by feel; as I tried to do. Positioning your body to get a good look is, at best, awkward

Dishwasher not cleaning correctly

Hey I hope this helps someone. . I was quite frustrated with out little dishwasher. It almost seemed that the dishes would come out dirtier than when they went in. Turns out we have hard water and it did a number on the parts of the dishwasher. Luckily, the parts were cheap enough that I thought I would give em a try. Between that and something called "dishwasher magic" I had success! One thing I wished I did differently was that I should have purchased two (2) wash arm retainer clips. . . I re-used an old one but it would have been nice to have all new parts inside. Needless to say, our dishes now are super clean. I have 6 young kids so our dishwasher gets a real workout. I may have to purchase a water softener down the road but for now we'll roll the dice. Hope this helps!
