Tip & How-To about Dishwashers
If your dishwasher is not getting your items as clean as you'd like, the problem might be in your sprayer arm jets. The jets are the small openings in each of the sprayer arms. Sometimes the food grinder doesn't adequately remove all the food particles and other debris and this is pumped into the sprayer arms. You'll need to remove the arms (usually just a simple removal of a wing nut) and flush them with a strong jet of water from your faucet or the sink sprayer. I've sometimes found pieces of paper from fresh produce, small bits of plastic or bone fragments, and larger pieces of food inside the jets. A tweezer will help you remove these from the jets, thereby opening them so that the water can again be forced through them. A wooden toothpick can also be helpful cleaning the jets.
