Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU850SW - Multiple Color Free-standing Dishwasher
Would like to clean out the spray bar in my whirlpool du850sw
The spray bar has a ring at its base - its between the spray bar and the floor of the dishwasher. Its notched so its very easy to grip... turn it counter-clockwise. It is probably on there pretty tight but it will come loose. I just turn the spraybar upside down and run water through the hole in the base... each of the holes on the spray bar should be checked to see if there is any debris poking out- use tweezers or something small enough to fish the debris out of the little holes. If you really wanna clean it thoroughly.... see the screw at the base underneath? unscrew it but make sure you remember the sequence of the parts so you can put it back together!
I also suggest you remove the mesh filter at the very back of the dishwasher floor and clean that. Take a flathead screwdriver (or table knife) and lift up the screen at the left side - you'll see a spot where its notched. Once you get that lifted a bit, you'll notice the right side is still attached... slightly turn the screen counter-clockwise (or toward you) until it pops out. If you've never cleaned that before - be prepared for the YUCK you're gonna find!!! eeewww!
Have fun and good luck!

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
