There is a plastic clip that holds the spray arm to the inlet line. This clip is in the center and has to be sqeazed together to release the arm.
Both upper and lower spray arms become clogged by different objects like paper, plastic, stems from fruits, etc... These are particles that cannot br dissolved be the detergents.

Cleaning the filter was the right thing to try.
Since you don't see cracks/breaks on the spray arm and it appears that it is spinning freely, I doubt that replacing the spray arm will fix your problem.
If your dishwasher is several years old, your problem is likely a failing pump motor, but before you swap that out, check that the impeller is not damaged. Good Luck!

We have a dwu7400 so i'm not sure it is the same, but above the top arm you should see a serrated ring (looks a bit like a flower petal) and that should spin off and the arm should come with it. There's a snap that holds those pieces together that if you squeeze it with your fingers you can get it out. Just reverse that to put it back together.
