Hi,
It may not be necessary to remove the upper spray arm. I wrote this short article for someone
several week ago. Item #4, which I have underlined tells you how to clear out lime deposits.
I hope this helps. Enjoy.

There are several causes in dishwashers that make dishes come out with film on them or something of the sort. Here they are.
1 Water temperature should be 140 degrees. Your dishwasher should have a "sani" cycle that heats up the water into that range.
2 Most dishwashers were never engineered for liquid soap. So if you are using it, go to powder soap.
3 A rinse agent is definitely a big plus
4 In some parts of America, such as Florida, lime deposits\015\012 build up in the machine and accumulate onto the dishes and glasses. \015\012It's a white film. It also accumulates in the parts of the machine and \015\012logs them. If this is the case. Run white vinigar in the machine.
Empty the machine.
Turn it on.
While the machine is filling with water, (not at the very very beginning as it will drain out existing water when it is started) put a quart of vinegar in and run it. If it has lime deposits it will greatly reduce them.

5 The spray arms may be jammed with pieces of food or other debris. make sure the holes in the arms are not obstructed.

That should do it.

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.

The dishwasher was recently removed for floor refinishing and reinstalled. The bottom rotor works but the top rotor does not. I asked the re-installer, who worked for the moving company, if he had connected everything properly and he said there was just one water line going into the machine and assured me he had connected it properly. Is there something else that needs to be done to make the top rotor operational? Thanks. John M

The items on the top rack never come out clean. there is always food residue left. it seems that the final rinse doesn't get to the glasses. we need to rinse them all out before the drying cycle starts or else the dirt dries up inside the glasses and we need to make them soak to remove the dirt!

I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it. Anyway, my nephew ordered the parts he said needed to be replaced. One was the top water feed tube and bearing which he had no problem replacing when the part came in. But, he is having a very difficult time opening up the front door to replace the soap dispenser. Removed the 6 screw (three on each side) and the two at the top of the door but that is as far

GE Potscrubber 650 Dishwasher, 13 years old. We want to take the front lower panel off to move the motor fan by hand, as you described for glideston'es post, but we can't figure out how to get the panel off. A repairman told us to remove the three screws at the top of the lower panel -- but they are too close to the upper door panel. The space between the two panels is not big enough to fit a screwdriver or any other tool we can think of. How do we remove the lower panel?

After a power surge the dishwasher does not work at all. It just beeps constantly. There are no lights on the touch pad at all.

I bought a house with a Bosch dishwasher in it and soon found that the top spinner holes are blocked with bits of old labels. I have removed the spinner and separated the concentric tubes but I do not see how to push the debris back along to the inlet. Do I need a power but very small jet to put into the holes along the arm? Would drying it then putting the suction of a vacuum over the inlet hole be useful?
