Our Maytag dishwasher, mod MDB9150AWS, has abad lower rack due to rust and prongs coming loose. Maytag sent me a replacement BUT without the center spray tower. It looks like trouble to remove the old one and install it in the new lower rack. Any help would be appreciated.

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again.

My dishwasher did not clean well. I replaced the seal on the bottom spray arm. there is a wobble now. the nut does not seem to screw down tightly. there is nothing wrong with the nut, it simply does not reach. I don't know if the lower arm is supposed to wobble, or if the nut should screw down tight. I can't seem to find a picture anywhere so I can visualize exactly how the spray are fits together.

I have a LG Dishwasher (LDF6920ST) The top rack is not working at all, even after I took everything out to clean. I really found northing when cleaning either.

When the dishwasher is turned on, the spray arm at the bottom does not spin, nor does it spray any water and the spray tower produces water but, rather than spraying, the water just kind of bubbles out of the top of the tower. The tower does also does not extend up as it supposed to.
